Speaking the right English is a task. Once there is mastery over the language and when your inner voice tells you that you were effective, this serves as a confidence booster. Continuous efforts are required when learning anything and this applies much to the English language.
It is interesting to note that there are more words incorporated into daily routine styles of English speaking as well as much needs to be updated in the writing matter. Reading is the trick also when you listen check out for pronunciations. There is no harm in being vernacular, your effort is a self gesture for improvement. Erase you the curling of your tongue and pronounce the vowels well. Adhere to punctuations and exclamations.
If there is someone you look up to, be it a television celebrity or other programmes on the Radio then make an effort to listen as though you are studying. Many audios on the speaking talents enable you to speak fluent English.
Make it a habit to go through the dictionary daily and use and understand the words. Be aware of synonyms and antonyms. Get the opposites right. If you a first time learner and are pressed for time to enroll into a full fledged English speaking course then the best way is to learn with your child. School books are the best learning ground. Sit along with your child and watch the home tutor read out. Practice writing too and while you jot the alphabets and sentences make an effort to read out aloud.
Do not wait for someone to correct your accent or do not hold up speaking publicly with the fear of being ridiculed. Sincerity and devotion to learning a language is the keyword.
Many English speaking courses are directed towards standardizing accents. Once you have finished the basic course enroll yourself to quality classes that also give you a choice in US and UK accents.
Be Indian and speak normally. A little modulation in voice does wonders. Throw you voice well when on a podium, do not hold the mike too close and when in a casual conversation make it a point to listen and understand the crowd. Speak fluent English and speak with the correct grammar. The truth lies in Listening.
