Do you want to skyrocket your English speaking skills? Are you an advanced learner of English looking to boost your job prospects, gain social fluency, and reach the peak of English proficiency? Then you're in the right place. Welcome to Advanced English, where we transform learners into confident speakers.
Imagine being able to express your thoughts clearly, effectively, and dynamically in English. Imagine being able to fit into any English speaking environment with ease and confidence. That's what we're here to help you achieve. Today, in this lesson, we're going to explore a fascinating study by Kaur and Aziz, which reveals the power of language games in enhancing speaking skills.
And the best part? You can practice these strategies right here in our Explearning Academy community.
The study shows that language games have a positive impact on improving speaking skills. They make learning fun, interactive, and engaging, which in turn boosts confidence and decreases anxiety. So how can you use this in your own English learning journey? Let's dive deeper into some of the actionable strategies.
Incorporate language games into your learning routine. This could be anything from word association games, where you think of a word related to the one that you said before, role plays, where you act out different scenarios in English, to storytelling games, where you create a story on the fly using a set of given words.
The key is to make it fun and engaging. So let's take a look now at how a word association game works.
In a word association game, one person says a word, and the next person says a word that's related. For example, if I say apple, you might say fruit. If I say fruit, you might say banana, and so on and so forth. It's a fun and easy way to practice your vocabulary and quick thinking skills.
Two, join a community of learners. Practicing with others can significantly improve your speaking skills. And in our own private community, Explearning Academy, we offer multiple live workshops each and every month where you can practice speaking and communicating in a safe, risk free, and supportive environment.
You can participate in group discussions, debates, or even impromptu speeches. In our workshops, you'll get the chance to interact with other learners. You'll get a chance to talk with me. You'll get to share your thoughts. And you'll get instant feedback. It's a great way to practice your speaking skills in a real world context. So, I hope you consider joining.

Number three, consistent practice. The more you practice, the better you get. That's just a fact. Make it a habit to practice speaking English every day, even if it's just for a few minutes. You could talk to yourself in English, narrate your daily activities, or even think in English. Let's try a simple exercise, shall we?
Try narrating what you're doing as you're doing it. For example, if you're making a cup of tea, you could say... Now I'm boiling the water. Next, I'll put the teabag in the cup. Then I'll pour the hot water into the cup. Finally, I'll add some milk and I'll stir. This simple exercise can help you practice your speaking skills and get you comfortable with the language.
Number four, embrace mistakes. Don't be afraid to make mistakes. They are a crucial part of the learning process. Remember, every mistake is a learning opportunity. If you mispronounce a word, take it as a chance to learn the correct pronunciation. If you use a wrong tense, learn the correct one and practice it.
Let's look at an example.
So let's say you use the wrong word tense in a sentence. For example, you said, I didn't went to the park yesterday. The correct sentence is, I didn't go to the park yesterday. And so when you realize your mistake, take a moment to repeat the sentence correctly a few times. This will help reinforce the correct usage in your mind.
By incorporating these strategies into your learning routine, you'll not only improve your English speaking skills, but you'll also boost your confidence, enhance your job prospects, and achieve social fluency in English. Remember, the key to mastering any language is practice, patience, and persistence.
So don't be discouraged by any challenges you face along the way. Keep practicing, keep learning, and keep pushing yourself. I'm rooting for you.
