Additional Study Advice

Practice until you can speak without thinking about each word
If you read each section once and listen to the lesson once, you will probably finish in 10 minutes. But you will not be learning anything. Take the time to make each sentence a part of you. You should be able to say each sentence without thinking about it. Use the Interactive Conversation Practice session over and over again until you can be fluent for that category. Don't be discouraged if a lesson takes you a long time.

Surround yourself with English to learn English speaking faster
Download the TalkEnglish Offline Version from the English Download page and use all the conversations and dialogs with your MP3 player. Even when you're not sitting at your desk studying, you can constantly listen and practice English. The audio files will enable you to study English on the road, waiting for the bus, at the coffee shop, or practically anywhere. You won't need to leave your country to become fluent in English if you study using these methods. Having all the audio files with you will help you speak much faster!

Invest your time and effort
Don't believe book titles that say you can learn English in 3 months. That is a lie and only the smartest of all genius's will be able to accomplish that. More realistically, it will take quite a long time. Depending on how much time and effort you put into it, you can finish this whole site and learn how to speak English in one year. Even if it takes two years, it is a great accomplishment seeing how many users study English for 10 years without being able to speak English.

Review regularly
It is normal to forget things that you do not use. Even after mastering a lesson, you should re-do the Interactive Conversation portion of that lesson on a regular basis so you don't forget it. After awhile, when those sentences are engraved in your head, you will be speaking English fluently.

Ask questions anytime you want
All users are welcome to view the postings on our Forums page. While studying English, you can always come into the forums page and ask questions.
