How to Effectively Communicate in English by Satish Nair

“The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen”. Frank Lloyd Wright

It is everybody’s dream to communicate in English,
even though we do not agree with it, however writing communications in English is very essential in today’s work place, especially in the present era of globalization. Speaking and writing make or break your career, peculiarly when you are working on a position, where you have to interact with a lot of people internally and externally regularly and if you are not communicating well, there will always be communication problems, mis-communications etc.

Here are some tips which may help you to effectively communicate in English.

 

Speak and Write Without Fear:

The biggest problem most people face in learning a new language is their own fear, like Stage Fear – we know everything, however doubt on our own ability as to whether we can. They worry that they won’t say things correctly or that they will look stupid so they don’t talk at all. Don’t do this.

The fastest way to learn anything is to do it – again and again until you get it right. Like anything, learning English requires practice. Don’t let a little fear stop you from getting what you want.

Practice Makes Man Perfect:

It is easy to write than to speak publicly, we can write privately whatever we want, first translation type of writing, i.e. try to translate little sentences into English, like stories, ideas etc. try to re-read it and then make it final. For this we have to put a lot of efforts, it is crucial to avoid spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, correct punctuations etc. and if you put a lot of concentration you can correct your language perfect, to a great extent.

To Have Enough Vocabulary:

If you put efforts your grammatical and other mistakes can be corrected, however you need to have a vast resources of vocabulary, since it is also a part of writing, hence try to have more and more assemblage of vocabulary, for this you can keep a electronic dictionary on your computer (or try to see the synonyms of the word by right clicking for synonyms) and whenever you come across with new words, try to know what does it mean and also try to use in your writing. Share the words among others also helps you to understand it better and help others to learn it.

Use Various Resources:

Even if you study English at a language school it doesn’t mean you can’t learn outside of class. Using as many as different sources, methods and tools as possible, will allow you to learn faster. There are many different ways you can improve your English, don’t limit yourself to only one or two. The electronic media like internet is a fantastic resource for virtually anything, but for the language learner it's perfect.

Surround Yourself With English:

The absolute best way to learn English is to surround you with it. Take notes in English, put English books around your room, listen to English language radio broadcasts, watch English news, movies and television. Speak English with your friends whenever you can. The more English material that you have around you, the faster you will learn and the more likely it is that you will begin “thinking in English.”

Listen to Experts as Much as Possible:

You can hear from various speakers from the news channels, various deshi news channels and pakka English news channel like BBC, though their tones and accents are different, however it is not our aim to know word to word meaning, but to familiarize with the English. But if possible try to hear from native English speakers, one of the reasons for this is that native speakers have a natural flow to their tone and style are totally different than the English speaking people.

Watch English Films and Television: We can also watch movies and serials on TV, this is not only a fun way to learn but it is also very effective. By watching English films (especially those with English subtitles) you can expand your vocabulary and hear the flow of speech from the actors. If you listen to the news you can also hear different accents.

 

Listen to English Music:

Music can be a very effective method of learning English. In fact, it is often used as a way of improving our knowledge base. The best way to learn is to get the lyrics to the songs you are listening to and try to read them as the artist sings. There are several good internet sites where one can find the words for most songs. This way you can practice your listening and reading at the same time. And if you like to sing, fine.

 

Study as Often as Possible: Only by studying things like grammar and vocabulary and doing exercises, can you really improve your knowledge of any language. There are a lot of e-book resources on the internet like www.gutenberg.org where you can have thousands of e-books, mostly classic (absolutely free) it can be downloaded and saved and when you get the time, you can read the classic books, this will help you to improve your English to great extent.

Do Exercises and Take Tests: Many people think that exercises and tests aren't much fun. However, by completing exercises and taking tests you can really improve your English. One of the best reasons for doing lots of exercises and tests is that they give you a benchmark to compare your future results with. Often, it is by comparing your score on a test you took yesterday with one you took a month or six months ago that you realize just how much you have learned. If you never test yourself, you will never know how much you are progressing.

Review Yourself: Nobody likes to review his progress, but it is good and necessary to review your progress from time to time. You may be so impressed with the progress you are making, hence you have test your ability most often to know the progress and to find out new resources to further improve.

Listen to English: By this, we mean, speak on the phone or listen to radio broadcasts, audio books or CDs in English. We can have cheap sources of audio books and CDs from the market with a cheap dictionary. This is different than watching the television or films because you can’t see the person that is speaking to you. Many people could observe that speaking on the phone is one of the most difficult things that they do and the only way to improve is to p
ractice.

The above are the ways and means to learn, however if you shy away from all the activities, will not make you an expert, there needs practices and hardwork, but above all it is mental attitude help you to learn, you have to have the correct attitude to avoid procrastinating the things, which will not lead you to become an expert in the field. So, why you are hesitating, start now. Start now by doing as many as exercises and tests whenever you can, and you can see a lot of differences after some days. Keep doing practices and one day you really will make progress with English.
