Some students of ten say My spoken English is poor. Other s say Speaking English is very hard for me, so no need to try. T his is what we call negative thinking. In fact, a lot of Chinese students can speak good English, but they dont. Their problem is a linguistic inferiority complex, in other words, they worry that they wont be able to speak as well as other people, so they feel infe rior in their presence. This sickness has a cure, that is, building self-confidence to get rid of shyness.
Here are some suggestions for you .
The first thing you can do is to speak English with good friends, with whom you can speak f reely without feeling shy. Then, try your ability with teachers and foreigners if possible. Dont be afraid of mistakes and dont be afraid to ask questions about things you dont know, as this is the way to acquire knowledge.
Thirdly, try to think in English and leave out mind translation. Not until you have done so can you be said to have a bet ter command of spoken English.
Fourthly, do more reading to expand vocabulary and learn to use the new words in your speech as much as possible.
Lastly, dont get angry with your self when you come across something you cannot express in English or the words you want to use suddenly escape your memory. This is unavoidable in the learning process. Just keep constant practice. For example, in CET-SET, a number of candidates failed the first time and after half a years practice, they succeeded in the second round.
To sum up, just as the old proverb says Where there is a will , there is a way, so no one should convince himself that he cant do what other people have done. Erase the negative notion and maintain a positive attitude. Therein lies success. By then you can communicate with the world.
