My Concern

What particular English Language Skill do I need to focus and study about if I'm having a hard time in speaking English fluently and sometimes fail my grammar in writing?

Thanks in advance.

Great question!

English can be confusing because there are many grammar rules and many exceptions to those rules. In addition, some words are not pronounced the way they look and the language is full of slang.

To speak English fluently, you need to continue to practice! Don't give up! And continue to ask questions!

Here are some ways to improve your English fluency and grammar:

1. Hire an English language tutor who is a Native English speaker.

2. Listen to English. If you live in an English speaking country, practice your English at the grocery store and by asking for directions around town. Visit a local bookshop and listen to conversations. Go to the movies and listen to the radio. If you do not live in an English speaking country, consider a tutor or purchase videos and audio recordings in English. Listen to English daily and practice speaking. You can even record yourself speaking to listen to your fluency.

3. Focus on phonics (how letters and groups of letters are pronounced) and trickier English words such as homonyms, homographs, homophones, and heteronyms.

4. Practice English grammar daily.

There are some other great resources on this site.
