Pooja,
being adept in a new language is a multi pronged effort:
a) get a grammar book by "wren & martin". costs approx 200/-
start with a single topic like noun, read 1-2 pages each day and seek to implement what you learn.
b) pick a dictionary which contains "pronunciations". also watch CNN.
c) dont join any run of the mill courses to learn english in 30/90 days.. they will never work.
if possible Educational counselling services of british council has a multi level course "english for non english speaking population". british faculty, courseare and internationally valid certificate. also you will really learn things out there.
let me know if you need further help,

hello pooja,

the best way to improve ur english is to read several

passages which come frm general wake of life. read these

sentences aloud so that ur parts of organs (jaw, lip, tounge)

become habitual. remember english is a rythmetical language.

try to chat on various chat softwares, if u can, like Yahoo, google, rediffbol, icq, paltalk etc and thn try to talk wid someone thro the voice chat facility. if u don hv this facility get som1 who is proficient in this

language and talk wid her/him.

apart frm all these u must enhance ur vocabs which must b not tedious or ornamental in nature, just simple and general. i will also recomend u to learn some phrasal verbs as well as some idioms and proverbs of this language which will add xtra boost to ur fluency.

In starting, always speak chunk by chunk which shd be consisted of 4-5 words at one short and slowly gradualy make it large upto 10 sentence in one time. I call it SLICING METHOD.

hesitation and junction is most important in any lanuage, so also give ur attention on this topic, coz due to that u wud always feel awkward frm the inside. some time u need to take junctions naturally and some time u need to handl , for xample :-

consonant-consonat junction : LEFT SIDE MOST PEOPLE ( c the last char of the first word and the first char of second word, and spk like LEFSID, MOSPPL)

vowel-vowel junction (PUT SLIGHTLY “Y” SOUND AT THE JUNCTION) :- THE ENEMY, THE OIL

consonant & vowel junction (CONSONANT OF THE FIRST WORD AND THE VOWEL OF THE SECOND WORD WILL BE SPEAKING AT ONCE. THIS IS

NOT SEPARATE BUT THEY ARE ONE.) :- STOP EACH , JOB EASILY

others :- exaust=igsaus , exit=agsit, extravganza=ikxtravganja

natural junction pauses u can learn or understand by reading english magzins, news ppr. so whenever u read that read it aloud.

one another way is to gatther & remeber some READY TO USE ASSEMBELD UNITS, which are readymade sentences and work for u as initiators when u come to spk, like as v say : i m sorry, thnQ very much for ur kind help, hey i know u were there and now u r lieing to me etc.

and last important suggestion is, watch cnn, bbc or this kinda news chnls . but better to watch english news chanls first which run by hindi media ppls and after some time u can watch cnn bbc and even u can watch the english movies. this is very important but not in first phase of ur learning.

Question framing is also tedious in this language so giv some xtra time also to this segment of language.

c, the ultimate way to talk in any language is to speak, comunict wid others. build a home first u need a plan and raw matrials, so go wid these suggestions & u wud c tht u bcome fluent. :)

if u need more suggestion in this regard, feel free to contact me, i m available at : , and 919314426456.

best of luck,

Vishwas

Hello Pooja,
As rightly suggested, buy a Wren and Martin book and start practising the different usages of each verb - form and tense. You should not only write and practise, but also start reading out aloud what you write so that you are able to use it in your day to day language. This way you'll stop making mistakes. Try to do it atleast for 45 minutes every morning. Also buy a book on Word power and learn atleast 3 new words each day to build your vocabulary. Start writing simple essays about topics which you like to write about. This is another way to improve your writing skills.
You can watch NDTV where mostly you find people talking with neutral accent and who are Indians.
Hope you find my inputs useful.
Kalaivani.

hi pooja,

am sure u r doing well...

as far as the matter of increasing the fluency in english in involved .. i believe it would be absolutely futile to join any course such as personality development or english speaking courses. they only make money and give nothing in return.

i would suggest you to go through the newspaper everyday ... u can read TOI or MID DAY or ET .. anything which interests u. comprehend the matter that u have read.. then go n stand infront of the mirror and say that to urself in english whatever u have understood that which u have just read...in this way u can see ur facial expressions on the mirror. this will give u a lot of confidence.initially u might find it difficult but after doing it for 5 days ... trust me .. u can see the difference urself.... u have to keep doing it daily.

one more important thing is ... always speak in english with ur friends... try also with ur siblings and if possible with ur parents .. in this way u would get into the habit of talking in english with confidence...dont get scared of speaking wrong english.. everyone makes mistakes and we all learn from our mistakes... if people laugh when u speak wrong .. let them laugh.. coz one day they would be the one to praise u. if u know anyone who speaks well then u can ask him/her about any sentence if u have doubts.

just give this thing one month's time and do as i have told u ..and u can see amazing changes in ur confidence, personality and the way u converse.

ALWAYS BE POSITIVE !

I M SURE THIS GONNA HELP...

HAVE A GOOD DAY
