15 Tips to improve your fluency in English
1. MAKE ENGLISH YOUR PRIORITY
The time spent in improving your English is considered as an investment for your future. It is important to make English your priority because it is only then you can push yourself to do something about it. We all work towards our priorities. Make English your priority and work towards building your fluency.
2. STAY COMMITTED TO ENGLISH
English needs regular commitment. You cannot learn English in today and tomorrow. You have to dedicate weeks and months to build fluency. Just like any other domain, you need to be committed to your goal.
3.TREAT ENGLISH AS YOUR HOBBY
The mindset behind learning English is very important. All the writers, professors and English experts treat English as their hobby and not as something just to learn. When we prioritise English as a hobby, we tend to make a conscious effort of interacting with the language. If we treat English as something that is to be learnt out of compulsion, we lose interest soon.
4. TREAT ENGLISH LIKE YOUR NATIVE LANGUAGE
If you spend 99% of your time speaking your mother tongue, the 1% left will not be sufficient to learn English. You have to give English a significant portion of your life. It’s just like learning a new skill. You have to invest time and energy in a language to speak it fluently.
5. FIND ENGLISH
English is not just limited to your text books or your learning books. If you open your horizons you will understand that English is literally everywhere. You just have to make a conscious effort to find it, to practice it, to test your vocabulary and you will be good to go.
Find English on your favourite biscuit’s wrapper, on your railway ticket and even on your daily essential wrappers. Just have an eye for it.
6. BUILD YOUR VOCABULARY
Keep working to improve your vocabulary. The bigger your vocabulary bank, the greater will be the power of your expression. I not only stress on this fact but also practice it and teach it to my students.

7. LISTENING IS IMPORTANT
Remember that a conversation consists of two major parts- listening and speaking. Both are interdependent on each other. In order to speak English fluently, you must be a good listener because fluency is often gained by listening to others and then copying the language used by them. To do the same try the following:
Watch English TV series, English YouTube channels, listen to English music, watch Hollywood movies etc.
8. PRACTICE ENGLISH EVERYDAY
To speak English fluently, you should use it everyday in your life. Practice makes a man perfect. Make sure you practice in order to achieve fluency.
9. LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES
Making mistakes is alright. I have often seen people feeling embarrassed when corrected for a misuse of a preposition or a tense. Remember that making mistakes, accepting them, learning from them and moving forward is the ultimate mantra of life.
Technology has made life much simpler. There are apps that you can use for learning English and correcting your mistakes.

10. CHOOSE YOUR BRANCH WISELY
There can be significant differences between American English and British English in terms of vocabulary, pronunciation and even grammar.
Make sure that you choose one branch of English to avoid confusion. In India, we follow the British English style so if you are an Indian, choose the British English. Otherwise, you are free to make your choice.
11. JOIN BOOK CLUBS
There are several book clubs, online and offline. Cultivate your reading habit and become a member of these clubs. You will get into the culture of reading, discussing and thereby improving your English.

12. DON’T RELY ON YOUR NATIVE LANGUAGE
We are often tempted to use our mother tongue in different and difficult situations. Stick to English even if it becomes challenging. These challenging times will become a yesteryear talk with time and practice. Choose the tough path to reach the goal.

It is very important to develop a good understanding of the language. Your fluency will be directly proportional to your understanding of the language.
15. BE YOUR BEST CRITIC
It’s easier to put the blame on others for your lack of fluency but making excuses will not lead you anywhere. Be your own critic and learn from the constructive criticism. You must take control and be responsible for your own progress.
