Pronunciation is important, but more importantly, speaking fluently, smoothly and consistently. You may find yourself pronouncing a letter or a word just like an English speaker, but when you try to use words in a sentence, things get messy; Where is the problem? Yes, you still can not speak fluently. Continuous speaking means uttering the last letter of the previous word and the first letter of the next word at appropriate intervals. By observing the following points, you can observe continuity and smoothness in speaking:

• When the last letter of the previous word is silent and the next word starts with the same silent letter, both letters are merged and one is pronounced: I’d decide it late.

• If the last letter of the previous word is silent and the first letter of the next word is vowel, you must connect the last silent letter of the previous word to the next word and pronounce it together: I’d like a fried egg

• When the letters t or d, are placed between two letters silently, they are not pronounced: See you nex (t) week!

• English speakers use abbreviations in conversations:

I + am = I’m

I + will = I’ll

do + not = don’t

I + have = I’ve

I + would = I’d

4- Speak slang and market alley

Folk and market alleys are the informal literature that people use in their daily conversations. The vernacular varies from city to city and country to country. Consider the following examples:

Wanna (Want to)

Hang out (Spend time together)

In informal language instead of saying, “Do you want to spend some time together?”

They say, “Do you wanna hang out?”

Do not watch speech videos or news to learn ordinary English speaking, instead look for it in interviews, movies and TV series.

5. Learn English terms

Have you noticed that when someone uses a term or proverb in his words in Persian, his words come to life and the audience gets excited? The same is true in English. Terms can be found on sites like Super Common English Idioms and Idioms Found in Songs. Here are some examples of terms:

• (very fast) in the blink of an eye

• (very comfortable) it’s a piece of cake

• Do not pay too much attention to details and stick to the main point. You cannot see the forest for the trees

6- Be patient and practice regularly:

If you have and practice a notebook of terms and their equivalents in your language, also do not doubt the use of terms and do not be afraid, you may not be able to speak well as a native at the right time and place and fluently Bring it, but it is effective for improving English speaking.
