"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February
Difficulties In Speaking English And How To Solve Them
The general cause that makes the task of speaking English difficult for English learners is the environment around them. Especially in India, the environment around does not support the learners to speak English frequently. The environment here is no one else but the people around. Few people make fun of you when you try to speak in English, few might judge you on your mistakes while others will think that you are just trying to show off when you use English in your daily conversation. Right?
However, this is not the only issue. There are a few other difficulties which resist you from speaking a fluent and decent English, which include:
1. Fear of committing mistakes:
This is the biggest and foremost issue which keep many English learners away from speaking English confidently even if they already know basic English. They think that if they commit any mistake, others will laugh at them or insult them. This keeps them away from practicing spoken English and they end up with all the hopes.
However, this is not desirable. It is merely normal for a non-native speaker of English to commit mistakes while learning English because English is not his mother tongue. Therefore, just speak out without any fear of making mistakes.
2. No words to express your insights:
Due to a lack of a decent vocabulary, at times it might happen that you do not get words to express yourself.
You should learn new words daily, a command of words can benefit your life in many ways. When you have command on large vocabulary words, you can express yourself easily.
3. Lack of practice:
Moreover, the major difficulty is due to the lack of practice of spoken English. To speak fluent English, you need to practice English on a daily basis. If you don’t find people around you to converse in English with, you can prefer some English practice app like EngVarta where you can practice English with experts over the phone itself.
A daily practice can make you used to the language and gradually you’ll get fluent in the language and start speaking naturally.
