During this lockdown period some are developing new hobbies while some are engaged in extracurricular activities. Here is an opportunity for everyone to utilize this period to learn new things or explore new world by staying at home.  Learning how to improve your English speaking skills at home can be very enjoyable as you don’t have to go to any spoken English class or appear for any test. So here are a few fun and easy ways to improve your English speaking skills at home:

1. Read aloud- One of the best ways to improve your English speaking at home is to read aloud from your favourite book. When you read aloud instead of reading in your mind, you can hear what you are saying and take note of which words are tripping you up or simply sound wrong. Download mobile apps from good companies such as British Council and Macmillan Education such as Sound Pronunciation App and Learn English Sounds Right and type in the words that you aren’t sure how to pronounce. Listen to the pronunciation on the app and try to replicate it when you are speaking them aloud.

You can also keep a notebook at hand and note down the words that are problematic for you to pronounce. Keep adding to the list every day.

2. Listen to podcasts- Many good media websites now also host podcasts where they hold interviews or talk about various things happening around the world. You can check out the top podcasts available around the world.

3. Indulge in some karaoke- You don’t only need to stock to books and podcasts to learn English at home. You can even improve your English speaking while having fun singing karaoke at home!

Download any of the karaoke apps on your phone such as Karaoke, Smule, and WeSing and sing away! The lyrics of the song will come on your phone and you can sing aloud your favourite English music titles.
