English foreign teachers point out that the vast majority of Chinese people have nothing to say in oral communication, or feel like they can't say it. What is the key reason why oral English is speechless? The most fundamental reason is the lack of sentence patterns and words. Although foreign teachers and parents have encouraged students to speak English for many years, they don't have enough "ink" in their stomachs. Naturally, they can't speak at their fingertips.
1. Accumulate vocabulary and retell content
The preparation stage is mainly to accumulate and imitate the amount of words. Read and recite a lot of English materials. Choose English materials that are slightly more difficult than your own ability through various ways, such as reading. Do exercises, listen to English tapes, watch English videos and movies to expand your vocabulary. Master common phrases, phrases, etc. "proficiency" is the premise of conversation with people. Only proficient can be fluent in conversation. The standard of proficiency is to blurt out without thinking.
It is suggested to practice from the scene closest to us in daily life, study, work, politics, economy, culture, history, etc., and pay attention to the sentence pattern of scene dialogue and the corresponding response mode. In this way, it is easy to connect the scattered knowledge points and the journey architecture.
2. Pay attention to pronunciation and tone imitation
Oral English imitation practice needs to read aloud. When imitating, you should be open, clear, and precise. Your mouth shape should be in place. You can't mince and whisper in your voice. At the beginning of imitation, the speed should be slow so that the sound can be delivered in place. After the sound is delivered accurately, the speed can be accelerated. Until he could speak the sentence easily at normal speed and blurted it out. The purpose of loud imitation is to make the oral muscles fully active, change the habitual movement mode of muscles formed over the years, and establish a new movement mode of oral muscles and English pronunciation.
Imitation must be "like". It means that the imitator's voice is close to the imitated language, and the imitated voice is very lifelike. Pure and beautiful pronunciation can be achieved by short-term imitation, especially for those who have the foundation of British English to learn American English, and for those who are used to speaking Chinese to learn English. Excess takes time, and the length of time depends on the degree of concentration of the self-study scholar.
3. Grammatical structure fixed sentence pattern accumulation
Looking for an article, in the operation of continuous listening and reading, imitating the whole sentence is far more important than imitating a single word. It should be noted that the sentence patterns and phrases you utter need to be grammatically correct, otherwise the other party will not be able to understand the meaning you express, and grammar is also the most important framework requirement for the formation of sentence patterns. The efficiency of external indoctrination and explanation of sentence patterns and words is very low. First, because of the language barrier, it loses a lot of time to explain a word in the face of students who are not very good at basic knowledge.
And the poor English grammar will be a very serious obstacle on the basis of the later language, resulting in their own sentence confusion and disorder. On the basis of certain word reserve and grammar, we can easily discuss the contents of many topics after we have reached a certain degree of certainty.
4. The cultivation of cultural logic consciousness
The cultivation of context consciousness plays a leading role in the cultivation of language skills. The best way to learn English is to throw someone directly to England or America. A student who has completed the first two stages of IELTS oral English preparation will often find that his pronunciation and intonation have passed the test, and gradually begin to approach the pronunciation of native speakers of English. However, all these are still in the stage of talking on paper. To fully translate what they have learned into practical experience, students also need to gradually pay attention to improving their awareness of cultural communication. When we understand the communication habits of Westerners, we can actually master the way to talk with them.
