5 easy ways to speak English fluently and confidently.
1. Read for a minimum of 15 minutes every day.
If you want to really learn any new language, before doing anything you first need to enjoy the process.
And other things come later.
Otherwise, you might lose interest and gradually quit.
And you have to understand that you need to practice daily if you really want to improve your English speaking skills.
Maybe you are thinking, “How can I practice”.
Here is an easy and interesting process.
But make sure you are going to practice it for a minimum of 15 minutes every day. Or if you can practice it for as long as you want then it is going to be a big plus point for you.

Reading Blog post
Yes, reading can help you a lot in improving your English.
Simply you can read any blog like this blog post but most importantly you must have interested in that topic.
Or you can read short stories which are easily available on the internet.
If you can read some motivational articles which not only improve your English but also keeps you motivated.
Or just read books of your interest.
Yes, watching videos also help you in improving your English.
You can simply watch some English YouTube videos, like motivational videos, short stories, movies, even cartoons.
I recommend you to watch cartoons because the language used in cartoons are very easy as it is for children to understand.
Secondly, you can watch other video content like Netflix. You can also watch English commentary.
Basically choose pieces of English content that you really enjoy.
Listen to podcasts.
Yes, Podcasts are a very easy and informative way to learn English.
You can choose any podcasts of your interest and start listening. Also, you can listen to the radio.
But make sure you are listening to the English language.
The next step is observing the English language from outside.
You need to observe how to structure sentences.
Don’t think about vocabulary.
Don’t even think about learning a lot of big words or new words.
At first, you have to focus on sentence construction and other things come later.
Always observe how a sentence being structured.
By reading or watching video content you will observe that the ways in which people construct their sentences are different from the way you think.
So, every time when you spot a difference in the content that you are watching or reading, you have to make it a mental note.
You need to realize that you are doing mistakes while speaking English and always try to fix them.
Just observe English from the outside.
How people construct their sentences?
Understand how English is spoken.
Once you figure how to construct a sentence in English then think of vocabulary or learning new words.
You only going to have that ability to understand spoken English when you practicing reading and watching English and observing from it into your own life.

3. Put your ego on the side
Many people associate English (basically in India) with intelligence. They think that if they are good at English if they can speak English fluently, that means they are intelligent.
Lots of people judge other people’s English very easily.
Don’t get me wrong but maybe you are one of them.
But keep in mind every time when someone makes fun of you, actually they are not making fun of you, they are making fun of themselves.
They are making fun of insecurity within themselves.
If they make fun of your English that means they are conscious about their own English which means they are boosting their own ego.
So the step number 3 is not actually to practice, it is to put your ego on the side.
If you are speaking English and you have mistakes while speaking that’s perfectly alright.
If people point out your mistakes, you will remember them for the rest of your life and your English improves in the process.
You shouldn’t give a shit about what people think.
You should give a shit about becoming the best version of yourself in every aspect of life.
The next tip to speak English fluently and confidently is that you got to chase clarity of thought.
If you want to improve any kind of spoken language, you want to get better at public speaking, and if you want to improve your communication skills, first you got to chase clarity of thought.
A lot of people are concerned about speaking English because they think of, “what will people think” or the whole translation process from your local language to English or just they keep thinking of words.
So clarity of thought is actually what you need to focus on to remove these bad factors.
What you have to do is meditation.
Maybe you are a little bit confused about why I bringing meditation into this topic. But, believe me, meditation has a lot of benefits into your life. Meditation clear your mind, it makes your thought process grounded, and make your thought process clear.
Trust me it will help you in absolutely in every single life skill out there.

5. English is not important.
Lastly, you have to understand that English is not that important.
So try to stop giving that much importance to the English language.
It is a huge flaw in Indian society that English is associated with intelligence. And it is a flaw because of the British rule.
200 years of British rule kind of put into our head that English is associated with intelligence.
But this is a very wrong mentality to have. Nowhere else in the world excluding India you will find this mentality.
You have to understand that it is a foreign language. It is not from your country.
Even while speaking English you can put in a little bit your local language is completely accepted.
Firstly you should proud of your own culture, your own language, and if you aren’t able to speak English well, it is really not that a bigger deal.
But, if you are in any profession where you have to learn English to communicate with others then this is another thing. You have to focus on learning English.
If you are living in an environment, where people are always talking English, it makes your process faster and easier.
But if you are not in any kind of profession then don’t give that much importance.
Be proud of yourself, be proud of your nation, be proud of your language.
