To improve your English.Start speaking in English with your friends in college and at your home.This is the best way to improve your speaking skills.other than going to institute for spoken English courses.Their you have to spend some amount,then also you may not able to improve your speaking,because their they will start with grammar first,which we will not show any interest.
I suggest you to speak with your friends from now,within a short period i.e 2 to 3 month you will be perfect,but be more close to friend who is perfect in english.so that he may correct you wrong spelled words,

You have developed an unnecessary fear. Speaking English has nothing to do with your engineering. You should practice speaking more and more wherever you get an opportunity. Practice speaking in front of a mirror donít feel embarassed in speaking, if you speak more you will be fluent and you will slowly start to speak correct english. This is the trick. Also form a group of friends or family members and converse with them.
Dont mind if they dont understand you speak on whatever you like and see the difference in 10 days.

Hello friend,
As you have mentioned that your command over English was good during your school days, the present problem might be because you have not been communicating with your friends in English. To maintain the command over a particular language, you need a regular practice. Since, you have not been communicating in English since a longer period of time, you have lost your confidence. to overcome this problem, you may do the following.
Try to communicate in English within your social circle as much as you can. Make a regular habit reading English newspapers, magazines etc.
By reading English newspapers and magazines, you will be able to learn various terms which you may use while communicating.
You may also purchase English speaking course books, CD's available in the market.
Apart from this, there are various such program available on the internet

Yours is a very general problem .. it happens because people
tend to lose touch with language since there is not much laungage
practice in engineering colleges, unlike school.
The solution is simple .. just speak more n more of english.
you can use the mirror technique. You stand in fron of mirror and talk to yourself.
speak on general topics ... then you can also join or create a club
of people who wana improve thein english.
you can speak freely without worryin that you are correct or not .. dispel your fears.
Also parcticipate in case studies and public speaking events where you will be able
to speak and practice.

Well thats very sad. But today English language is the need of the day. Wherever you go for a job or anything else, you will notice that more and more people are speaking in English and thats what connects the world. English is the universal language of communication.

The only way to speak good English is to actually start speaking in English.

Once you start speaking in English, then you will realize what are your problems and where you can improve.

Also, read English dailies, newspapers, magazines to improve your vocabulary. Listen to English news and try speaking as much as possible in English.

Today there are many institutes that provide expert coaching in English. But as you say that you know good English from school days, so wont need that.

Tell your family and friends to only speak in English with you, but if they use any other language, then you make it a point to answer back in English.

Just follow the steps i noted and you will surely improve your English!

So start speaking in English from today!!

to improve the spoken english power for an engineering students is not so much difficult. also they don't need to take admission in any other private spoken english coaching classes.


just follow some procedure to improve your speaking power. first of all you have to built in your mind that you have to speak in english. may be you speak english very bad till you have to speak english in front of your friend or in the communication classes.

must attend the communication classes regularly because it is a platform where you will get chance to speak in english and also you will know some way to improve your communication power.

study english newspaper regularly. watch english news on television or any other english program. try to watch english movie a lot with more concentration. try to understand english song.


daily practice english speaking may be along in a room in front of mirror or in front of mirror at least for 1 hours. whenever you will speak with your teacher or any other professional person try to speak in english. may be if you speak in your first language you will be able to express good till you have to speak in english because at that time you will try your best to speak english and it will help you a lot to improve your speaking power.



try to think in english whatever you are speaking in your first language. improve you vocabulary from the newspaper, television etc.


just practice in this way. within one year your fear for english speaking will go and after two years you will be able to speak english fluently.


one thing this procedure is not so much easy. there are so many burden will come when you will follow these steps. someone may lough on you. but you have to continue it. do not think that you never speak well english fluently. take it easily don't be shy. as an engineer you must speak english fluently other wise so much people will lough on you instead of one or two person.


best of luck.

The first rule of speaking English is to speak clearly, concisely and use simple vocabulary


Get over any fear you might have of making mistakes. You will make mistakes.

Be patient with yourself. Learning any language can be frustrating, but frustration won't help you, so let it go.

Grasp every opportunity you have to speak with people in English.

Talk to friends who are also learning English. Go out together for coffee and only speak English to each other!

Read short stories out loud and try to see, say and hear the words to reinforce your memory. Record yourself and play it back later, how does it sound?

Try singing along to English songs

Language
improvement
is
easy,
if
we
enjoy
doing
it.
In-
fact
everything
is
easy
in this world, if we love to do it.
So for improving your spoken
English you need to enjoy the
learning process. There are
number of resources available
online, which makes your
learning process easy.
The best way to do it, is by using
English games. Check out online
for a plethora of material for
English improvement. The net
provides a plethora of
information about various
activities and ways to Improve
spoken English. But you need to
find the one that appeals and
draws your attention. That is
important so as to keep you
intact with the learning process.
Apart from these, there are many
spoken English articles, which
could be very useful. The audio
courses available on the net are
helpful to make your self
accustomed to the way the
English is spoken.
Internet is wide, and unlimited,
search for resources, but stick to
those which you like and are able
to understand. Because that will
help you to gain confidence.
Sometimes too many resources
also can hamper your progress
of English learning, as you could
be confused regarding which to
choose. But narrowing your
search to a few genuine and
authentic English teaching sites,
can boost your performance in
an amazing way.

You told that already you are good at English at your school level. I don't know why you have not continued the same till your engineering.

Anyway to improve your English, it solely depends on you. You yourself have to put the efforts and reep the benefits. The best way to develop English is continuous speaking in English with other persons. Whether it may be with friends, family persons or relatives.

And at the same time once discussion or conversation is over for a period of them, request them to intimate any mistakes or wrong usage of sentences to you that is what they find in you. Try to not repeat those the same mistakes for the next time.

Before that have some inputs or be equipped with some inputs like Grammar. Learn all aspects of grammar like tenses, articles, prepositions, voice etc. If you are good at grammar obviously you yourself can know the usages of some words or sentences.

In addition go through some English news papers, magazines and watch English channels.

i. Observe the mouth movements of those who speak English well and try to imitate them.
When you are watching television, observe the mouth movements of the speakers. Repeat what they are saying, while imitating the intonation and rhythm of their speech.

ii. Until you learn the correct intonation and rhythm of English, slow your speech down.

If you speak too quickly, and with the wrong intonation and rhythm, native speakers will have a hard time understanding you.
Don't worry about your listener getting impatient with your slow speech -- it is more important that everything you say be understood.

iii. Listen to the 'music' of English.
Do not use the 'music' of your native language when you speak English. Each language has its own way of 'singing'.

iv. Use the dictionary.
Try and familiarise yourself with the phonetic symbols of your dictionary. Look up the correct pronunciation of words that are hard for you to say.

v. Make a list of frequently used words that you find difficult to pronounce.
Record these words, listen to them and practice saying them. Listen and read at the same time.

vi. Buy books on tape.
Record yourself reading some sections of the book. Compare the sound of your English with that of the person reading the book on the tape.

vii. Read aloud in English for 15-20 minutes every day.
Research has shown it takes about three months of daily practice to develop strong mouth muscles for speaking a new language.

viii. Record your own voice and listen for pronunciation mistakes.
Many people hate to hear the sound of their voice and avoid listening to themselves speak. However, this is a very important exercise because doing it will help you become conscious of the mistakes you are making.

ix. Be patient.
You can change the way you speak but it won't happen overnight. People often expect instant results and give up too soon. You can change the way you sound if you are willing to put some effort into it.

Cool Re: How to improve spoken English as an engineering student?

Dear friend,

To improve spoken English it is necessary to speak in English daily. Here right and wrong is not the matter, at the beginning English word should come out from your mouth.

To remove your hesitation first of all go to such a place, where no one is there to listen you. Then you start speaking loudly. Speaking loud is only the punching point to remove your hesitation, do it regularly about 10 days.

Then automatically you will start speaking in English.

Other points are:

Start reading English newspapers, Magzines a other books.

Very soon your English will improve.

All the best

This is one of the most common problem students face in India, even after completing graduation and post graduation, students find it difficult to talk in English fluently. This will be a challenge when you appear for interviews and also in job profile when you need to talk to customers in English language. To stand a better chance of getting job, you have to improve spoken english. Best thing is to increase vocabulary power and then practice speaking in english first with people you are comfortable with like friends, brothers/sisters and so on. You could also possibly join spoken english training programs where you will get enough opportunities to speak more.

This is very general problem now the days. Most of the engineering student (even the student of IITS and NITS also) are facing the problem in speaking english frequently. For improving Spoken english you should read english newspaper (preferably THE HINDU) daily and good english article containing magazines. You should watch english news also if it is possible for you. Start speaking english among your friends, dont hesistate of it by thinking that people will make amuse of you. Definitely, in starting you will face a lot of problems in it, but by practising a hard and lot you can improve very much.

If you live in hostel, then on the holidays you can arrange debate among friends and participate positively in that.

Labour hard, All the best.

Dear friend
Don't get bothered about speaking english fluently because it is very simple and easy to increase fluency in this language. It is a very funny language. If you wants to increase your speaking power then the simplest mean is to speak it more and more with your counterparts. Don't hesitate while speaking, keep talking else you are speaking wrong words or sentences. You will improve it slowly slowly but you must have word power in yourself . If you are having lack of it then try to accumulate it. You can do this by reading english newspaper and listening english news regularly. While gossiping with friend try to speak english ridiculously. Remember practice makes a man perfect and intelligent. Make a habit of writing diary in english in your own words. You can also join an english speaking coaching centre if you intends to reach your goal of improving english quickly and furiously. Nothing is impossible in this world that a man cannot achieve. Those who keep trying to reach their destination they will got it easily.
Good luck

First you have to improve your english grammar and vocabulary to speak well in english, so watch some good english news channels like BBC, CNN etc. and read english newspapers where you can learn the usage of different english words..

I have attached 2 e-books in this post which helps you to learn the basic grammar which is highly important to speak because when you know proper basic grammar then you can frame the sentence properly..

After studying the grammar and vocabulary you have to start speak in english as you mentioned without any friends or relatives then its better you start speaking with the persons whom you dont know well if you feel bad to speak with your friends and relatives because there is no other way you can improve in spoken english unless you start conversing in it.. so start speak in english after you become strong in basic grammar and vocabulary then sure you will see the improvement...

hope the info. helps....

Since, you have not been communicating in English since a longer period of time, you have lost your confidence. to overcome this problem, you may do the following.
Try to communicate in English within your social circle as much as you can. Make a regular habit reading English newspapers, magazines etc.
By reading English newspapers and magazines, you will be able to learn various terms which you may use while communicating.
You may also purchase English speaking course books, CD's available in the market.
Apart from this, there are various such program available on the internet

its not that difficult to regain your fluency follow the simple steps as suggested by my forum mates and also consider my suggestions.

First create an interest in your internal mind that your going to concentrate on your language.

everyone will have their own style
some will take help of english newspaper

I have attached 2 e-books in this post which helps you to learn the basic grammar which is highly important to speak because when you know proper basic grammar then you can frame the sentence properly..

After studying the grammar and vocabulary you have to start speak in english as you mentioned without any friends or relatives then its better you start speaking with the persons whom you dont know well if you feel bad to speak with your friends and relatives because there is no other way you can improve in spoken english unless you start conversing in it.. so start speak in english after you become strong in basic grammar and vocabulary then sure you will see the improvement...

hope the info. helps....
Also, when you don't have people who can speak English around you, you could speak to yourself loudly. This could be done in front of a mirror. Even otherwise, just speak your thoughts loudly to yourself. In addition, you could read books, newspapers, and magazines.

Hi,
To improve your English.Start speaking in English with your friends in college and at your home.This is the best way to improve your speaking skills.other than going to institute for spoken English courses.Their you have to spend some amount,then also you may not able to improve your speaking,because their they will start with grammar first,which we will not show any interest.
I suggest you to speak with your friends from now,within a short period i.e 2 to 3 month you will be perfect,but be more close to friend who is perfect in english.so that he may correct you wrong spelled words,
.
Thanks

Writing just a page in English on any topic everyday and then proof reading it will also help in perfecting the language. Wish you all the best.

Writing a page on any topic in English everyday and checking it for correct grammar also helps in perfecting the language. This practice will not only help in speaking but also in writing correctly. This will train the mind to think in English and to direct our sensory organs in using the language.
Wish you all the best.

As an engineering student you have to be good at english because you are going to enter in corporate world where english is common mode of communication so as your basic is clear so you just need to brush up go and read good novels of dan brown ,sidney sheldon and if you are a beginner go for chetan bhagats novel ...watch english movies those will help you a lot .....and if possible go through book word power made easy .
