Here are some rescource for practicing spoken English
Follow-up TED talks are a good way to express logic and express opinions in English.
English podcast is a channel to practice listening and speaking that I think everyone should try. Especially the BBC and NPR blogs. The wording, structure, logic, and pronunciation of these professional blogs are very worth learning and imitating.
Remember that you have to keep practicing to improve your oral English!

Sometimes, the difficulty with oral English is not the language itself, but your thoughts. If you think in your native language and then try to speak English, you will always have to switch between the two languages and translate. The translation is not an easy task! Even people who are proficient in two or more languages can hardly switch between the two languages at will. Therefore, a key to improving oral English is to learn how to think in English. You need to learn to do this as much as possible anytime and anywhere. For example, when considering your own day or shopping in a supermarket, try to think in English. Even try to use the English-English dictionary to find words. In this way, you don’t have to use your native language and then translate it, but just blurt it out.有时，关于英语口语的难点不是语言本身，而是您的想法。如果您以母语思考，然后尝试说英语，那么您将始终必须在两种语言之间进行切换并翻译。翻译并不是一件容易的事！即使精通两种或多种语言的人也难以在两种语言之间进行随意切换。因此，提高口语的一个关键是学会如何用英语思考。您需要学会尽可能地随时随地执行此操作。例如，在考虑自己的一天或在超市选购商品时，请尝试使用英语思考。甚至尝试使用英英词典来查找单词。这样，您就不必先使用母语再将其翻译而是直接脱口而出。

This includes voice and intonation. Chinese English teaching pays very little attention to intonation, although intonation may be more important than pronunciation in many cases. Read English conversations and articles aloud, read various sentence patterns and the most commonly used sentences in spoken language, recite articles and speeches, and practice spoken English with English speakers. Of course, it is best to practice spoken English with native English speakers. In fact, talking to oneself is one of the effective ways to practice oral English.

Hello, 大家好。我认为练习英语口语是不能够一蹴而就的事情。作为English second language learner, 我们需要进行长期的练习。除此之外，很多同学包括我，都会很在意自己的英语口音，所以很可能会刻意模仿一些美式口音或者英式口音。但实际上，我们模仿的并不一定是适合自己的，因此，我推荐大家到bilibili (B站) 这个app上去关注一些英文博主，他们大多数都是拥有海外留学背景的中国人或者华裔，我认为他们的英语口语可以给 English second language learner 很多参考。

看到很多同学都分享了通过视频来练习听力，锻炼口语的方法。 我也十分赞同。 但是我认为有一些方面需要注意。 我们在看美剧，听TED的时候可以找自己感兴趣的方面，这样会让你更有动力学习。 并且，我认为关掉字幕是一个很好的做法。 因为你会很想知道视频的内容，你会更加努力的了解每句话的意思， 这样也会让你的印象更深刻。 （Crystal）

When it comes to the oral English, I always want to recommend Oxford Online English.
It is a Youtube account which posts videos related to various topics. And most of them are hot topics in IELTS test, including lifestyle, food, sports and so on. The videos are based on dialogue. Therefore, it is a good choice for us to follow the dialogue to practice oral English.
Here is the link of Oxford Online English:

I think there are some aspects to pay attention to when practicing oral English. When we are watching American TV series, we can find what we are interested in, which will make us more motivated to learn. Moreover, I think it’s a good practice to turn off subtitles when watching videos. The reason is that if we want to know the content of the video, we will work harder to understand the meaning of each sentence, which will also make us more impressed with English.

I think the easiest and most direct way to improve oral English is to speak more and practice more. There is no doubt that if you are in an all-English environment, this will help a lot. With classmates, we can use English to chat more, even for some daily things, which will improve our proficiency. Participating more and speaking more in class is to create opportunities for yourself to speak more English, which will also be very effective.

First, I think the most effective way to improve your speaking skills is to speak more. Try to make as many contacts as possible and communicate with different people in English. Take advantage of opportunities to talk to professors or friends, and try to join English-speaking organizations. These will help you become more fluent in English.
Second, develop an interest in English. You will enjoy speaking English when you have a topic that interests you. You can participate in some impromptu speeches or debates to feel the fun of speaking English.
Third, build up your vocabulary. When your vocabulary is scarce, you often do not know how to express your ideas and thus resist speaking English. When you accumulate a lot of vocabulary, you will enjoy speaking English. – Libby

About improving spoken English, I think we must dare to speak firstly, because only after you speak out can we discover problems and solve them. At the same time, I think interest is also very important. Regarding cultivating interest, I think we can watch some American dramas and interesting speeches, which will make it easier for us to accept English. At the same time, practice is also very important. You should try to say something by yourself to express your ideas in English, and actively exchange experiences with the professor. I have found some specific information on the Internet, I hope it will be helpful to you. (Posted by Carrie) 关于提高英语口语，我认为首先要敢说，因为只有你说出来以后我们才能发现问题并且去解决问题。同时，我认为兴趣也是很重要的，关于培养兴趣，我认为我们可以看一些美剧和有趣的演讲，这会让我们更容易接受英语。同时练习也是很重要的，要时常的自己尝试去说一些东西，用英文表达自己的想法，积极的和教授交流增长经验。我有在网上查询到具体的一些相关信息，希望对你们有所帮助。

I think you have to be brave enough to speak up and don’t worry about whether others will laugh at you. Even if you don’t know how to say it, you can splice some words into sentences.
Followed by the practice in private, follow the video to correct your pronunciation, write some commonly used sentences and read them out, so that you can train the grammar and logic of speech.
You can communicate with the teacher frequently, avoid speaking Chinese, and form inertial English thinking.

Reflect on your conversations
After your conversation is over, take a moment to reflect. How did it go? How much do you think you understood? How comfortable did you feel with that subject matter? Did you encounter any unknown words? The mere act of thinking about it in this way will increase your confidence for the next time you speak (and give your targeted things to work on, for example vocabulary you didn’t understand).
12月 11, 2020 12:12 上午 #2600
My ways of improve my oral English is mainly about listening and practicing.
I think if you want to improve your English, you should listen more. The listen here can be divided into extensive listening and attentive listening. By mentioning extensive listening, what I mean is about trying to create an excellent oral-English atmosphere. You can choice material like speeches from like TED. The point of extensive listening here is to having a sense of how good oral English should be like. The attentive listening means listening carefully. You can choose a speech and try to imitate the oral English of the speaker. Pay attention to the tone, the elision and the local expressions that may help to contribute to a good oral English.Also, listen to the record of your own oral English will also be a great help in finding out the existed problems.
Listen is important but you will not make a progress without practicing. Try to practice more. After all, the more you practice, the better you are. The point here is to apply the rules that you learned from other good speakers to your practice. Try to imitate instead of just say in the way of whatever you like.

I want to share a very effective tip: tell yourself what happened during the day in English.
We have been encouraged to speak English with our companions to practice our spoken English since we first started contacting English. However, I have to admit that this is not a practical method. This is actually embarrassing! A better way is to speak English with yourself every day. When we are alone every night, we can try to speak softly or just silently narrate the events of the day in English. For a long time, this can improve our ability to think in English, language organization, and storytelling.
When doing this exercise, pay attention to enrich our description as much as possible. For example, you can try to change from “I had a Spanish class today.” to “I got really nervous throughout the entire Spanish class today because I was the last one to give the final presentation. I kept practicing what I want to say in my seat. This feeling is terrible, so next time I will apply for the first one to give a speech!”

A great way to improve your English speaking skills is to immerse yourself in English as much as possible. Watch movies or TV in English, with subtitles if you need them, and watch the same programs over and over. Most people find that they understand more each time. Listening helps you become familiar with the rhythms and intonations of English. Once the sounds are familiar, try imitating them.

The most important thing about practicing oral English is whether or not you think by this language system. There are still many differences between the grammatical systems of Chinese and English. If you are thinking in Chinese language system when speaking English, your ability to blurt out will not be realized. Thus, getting used to thinking by English language system to practice your oral ability and exercise your English language system.

There are many skills to improve spoken English. I think it is very important to clarify the pronunciation of each English word. When you encounter a new word, you should learn the correct pronunciation according to the phonetic transcription. In addition, it is helpful to read English snippets aloud frequently. To improve spoken English requires more practice speaking English. It is also very important to immerse yourself in the authentic language environment. You can listen to more English language movies or series.提高英语口语的技巧有很多。我认为明确各个英语单词的发音是很重要的，当遇到新的单词时，你要根据音标学习正确的发音。此外，经常朗读英文片段是很有帮助的，提高英语口语需要多练习用英语说话。将自己沉浸在正宗的语言环境中也是很重要的，你可以多听多看一些英语语言的电影或连续剧。

There is an old story in China. In the past, a person in Chu State wanted to learn Qi’s language, but he stayed in his own country. People around him and himself used Chu’s language most of the time. His Qi language level Can’t improve. When his friends found out, they suggested that he go directly to Qi State. How he followed his friend’s suggestion and came to Qi State, and his language proficiency improved in a short time. This story reveals to us that the improvement of spoken English first requires an objective language learning environment to help us. This is forcing us to listen and speak English constantly in terms of objective conditions. Secondly, we need to keep accumulating vocabulary, which is a boring but necessary thing. Finally, we should also master basic grammar, which allows us to use vocabulary more correctly.在中国有一个古老的故事，以前在楚国有一个人想学习齐国的语言，但是他呆在自己的国家，身边的人和自己大部分时间都使用楚国的语言，他的齐国语言水平一直不能提高。他的朋友知道了就建议他直接去齐国，如何他听从了朋友的建议来到齐国，很短的时间里他的语言水平就得到了提高。这个故事启示我们，口语的提高首先需要客观的语言学习环境帮助我们。这是在客观条件方面迫使我们去不断的听和说英语。其次，我们需要不断的积累词汇，这是一件枯燥但是很有必要的事情。最后，我们也应该掌握基本的语法，这让我们更正确地运用词汇。

I used to practice my spoken English by remembering some sentences, but it was not very effective. This method is very time-consuming and very hard to do. Most importantly, you still can’t use them and speak fluently in real conversations. I think the best way is to find a partner, such as your roommates, and spend a short period of time every day talking to each other in English. The content can be anything you want, such as what’s going on every day. It’s fun and practical.

There is no doubt that the best way to improve oral English is to speak more, listen more, and watch more are not useful. Only when you really use English to communicate, can you improve your oral English. Therefore, in order to achieve the goal of speaking more, we can try to communicate our daily life with our friends in English, it will be better if we can find a friend whose native language is English and talk with him, which can exercise our ability to speak English.

1. Imitate American TV characters. Choose a character and imitate the tone of voice as he speaks. Repeat the practice with yourself.
2. Talk to yourself in English for a little while each day.
3. Listen to two episodes and read one
4. Immersion: Create context without context

The way to practice spoken English is to listen and speak more. Although many WKUers are in the atmosphere of full-English teaching, their oral English is not very good. I think a large part of the reason is that they are only willing to listen and not willing to talk. In fact, the interaction between students and the professor is very important, mainly speaking boldly. If you want to further improve, you can communicate with the professor after class the latest learning situation and don’t understand the knowledge. In addition, watch more American and English dramas. When listening to the local people speak English, our oral English is also improving.

The best way to improve oral English is to listen more, practice more, listen to other people’s way of speaking and pronunciation, and practice. As a language, the fastest way to learn is to use the language to communicate with native speakers, so as to integrate into the language environment and exercise the sense of language. Here I recommend a platform I used before.

I think the progress of spoken English cannot be separated from day-to-day practice, especially when our mother tongue and English have relatively different ways of thinking. Here I want to recommend a software called Fluent English. Here you can have an authentic dialogue scene, simulate the communication environment with native English speakers, and imitate authentic pronunciation.

It feels like you lose your sense of English speaking. What’s more, another tip is considering as the English. Usually, when we speak English, we may think with Chinese in our mind first, then translate to English. I think it is the biggest changllenge for us to improve our English speaking.

Spoken English is output. When you plan to break through oral English, you must first determine whether you have accumulated your vocabulary, reading, and listening skills. Without vocabulary, it means that what you can express will be greatly limited; without reading, it means that you read too little and naturally don’t know how to express; without listening, you can’t understand what people say, so all aspects of English ability They are all interrelated, and only the improvement of overall ability can improve oral English.

In my opinion, the simplest way to improve your oral English is to put yourself in that language environment. Besides communicating with native speakers, watching foreign language series and movies is also an excellent way. Some people may recommend memorizing words. They think that mastering more words is the best way to speak more fluently. But I do not think so. You just remember the words, but you do not know how to use them in oral English. One exception is that you can recite words with example sentences. This is helpful for your understanding and further use of the word.

1. Be brave to make mistakes. You should be not ashamed of making mistakes when you talked to native speakers. Practice makes perfect. You should have good communication with your professors and during the conversation, oral English is improving.
2. Follow to read and imitate the tune in the movies or TV series.

I think the important way to improve oral English is communication. At wku we have a lot of resources, such as an English learning center and many foreign teachers. If we can make full use of these resources, our oral and daily communication skills will be greatly improved. In addition, follow-up reading is also an effective method for exam-taking. The change in speech intonation and speed can make us more like a local speaker. The resource I recommend is TED speeches. Reading these speeches is also a way to improve speaking.

In my opinion, improving oral English is more important than reading and writing, because you have to communicate with others. Many people are afraid to speak English because they are afraid of making mistakes. Therefore, I think the first step to improve oral English is not to be afraid of making mistakes and to communicate with others in English. When you communicate with others, they don’t care if you make grammatical mistakes or have an accent. As long as you can express your ideas clearly, it’s okay.

Secondly, I think we can make good use of the advantage that there are many foreign teachers in our school to communicate with them or ask them for authentic English speaking, so as to improve our spoken English.

In my opinion, for daily communication, we can record some useful sentences by watching the vlog of native English speakers, then practice and compare more to improve our pronunciation. However, in practice, our mind usually goes blank, unable to say better sentences that we have memorized. This is the problem that I hope to solve. In communication, I usually use very simple sentences and put them together, and I can’t express myself smoothly. Therefore, I think we still need to put down our timidity and communicate with others. For example, many English learning platforms now provide a section for communication with foreign teachers. We can make more use of these channels. One on one teaching can also force us to speak. For example, the following website is mainly to provide oral online teaching platform: https://www.cambly.com

1. 积极参与，并对交流有渴望（敢于交流，勇敢说出来）。WKU给我们提供了一个沉浸式的英语学习环境，我们要充分地利用这个便携提高我们的口语。小班化的授课让每个人都有机会和外教进行沟通。在和英语作为母语的他们沟通时，我们可以学习他们的发音，语调等。只有多练习，口语才会有进步。此外，还可以在教授的office hour找他们聊天，学术知识和口语都得到训练。和教授成为朋友更是不错的选择。
1. Actively participate and desire to communicate (dare to express, speak up bravely). WKU provides us with an immersive English learning environment. We must make full use of this portability to improve our spoken English. Small class teaching gives everyone the opportunity to communicate with foreign teachers. We can learn their pronunciation, intonation, etc. when sharing with native English speakers. Only by practising more will oral English improve. Besides, you can also chat with them during the professor’s office hour and get academic knowledge and oral English training. It’s even better to be friends with professors.
2. Determine the goal and designate a schedule dedicated to English learning. You can write in detail how much time should be spent on oral practice each day. Studies have shown that even if you only spend 10-30 minutes a day on language learning, you will see good results over time as long as you stick to it consistently.
3. Record the English you speak, and improve self-correction. When I asked my advisor how to improve oral English skills, she told me that recording is beneficial. Listening to your audio can find that you have many shortcomings, and repeating and correcting can reduce the number of mistakes you make and improve your spoken English.

In my opinion, the way to improve oral English is to read and practice more. It is the best to put yourself in an English environment, because you will be influenced by the pronunciation and intonation of the people around you. It is worth noting that you need to have a good reserve of English words, which is the foundation.

Firstly, you must switch your thinking style to English style. Only you do that do you speak English without excessive thinking time. Secondly, you can read English following some records to find out any problems in your spoken English. You can try to change and improve your pronunciation by listening to the records. You can learn the tones of native speakers, and imitation is very important to improve your oral English.
首先，您必须将思维方式转换为英语风格。 只有这样做，您才会说英语，而不会花费过多的思考时间。 其次，您可以阅读一些记录后的英语，以查找英语口语中的任何问题。 您可以尝试通过听录音来更改和提高发音。 您可以学习母语人士的语气，模仿对于提高您的英语口语非常重要。

If you live in a foreign country, you have to overcome the psychological barrier and don’t be afraid to teach foreigners, and try to practice more expressions you learn from the plays or books.If you are in China, try to create an English speaking environment for yourself!. There are many Chinese students who want to communicate and learn with their local classmates, but are too shy to speak due to their poor oral English, which creates a vicious circle. So, to avoid this, think about what you’re going to talk about before you meet a foreign friend, and then say it to yourself. When you are prepared, you will not be afraid to speak up when you meet for fear of saying the wrong thing. In addition, you can get to know foreign friends by introducing them to each other or participating in school club activities. Or, you can post on the school’s forum to find foreign friends who are interested in Chinese culture or Chinese language to solve this problem. There are more tips on how to do this in the link.

1. Watch films. Watch movies in English and pay attention to new vocabulary and pronunciation. Imitate the actors and have fun with it.
2. Have a debate. Debate all the topics that interest you with friends in English. Try to use as much vocabulary as you can to get your point across and listen to the other arguments carefully so you can argue against them effectively.
3. Use technology. A smartphone can be a powerful tool for learning languages. Use it to record yourself speaking then listen back to see how your English sounds to other people. Make the most of all your favorite productivity apps to organize your practice time and make a note of all the new words you learn.

One of the most common ways for me to practice my oral English is to watch English movies (English subtitles are required). If you have English pronunciation, you can watch more English plays or movies. If you have American pronunciation, you can watch more American dramas or movies. When watching a movie, try not to watch the subtitles for the first time. You need to try to distinguish the lines by yourself. After you have identified it, you can compare it with English subtitles.

Vocabulary accumulation is the foundation of oral English. In order to improve the oral level, it is necessary to accumulate sufficient vocabulary. Learning, understanding and using some vocabularies related to daily life is to lay a good foundation for oral learning. In addition, by using different listening materials to deepen our understanding of English pronunciation, we can then start to imitate the correct pronunciation, or we can record our own voice and compare it with the listening materials, find out the mistakes, and keep practicing to deepen our memory. This requires you to continue to speak and practice oral English. Here is an interesting video to introduce and you could learn from it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U3G5W2Kdr74&t=51s

Dare to speak and speak more in order to recognize the mistakes in your spoken English and get the opportunity to correct them.

No matter what language you learn, I think the best way to improve your oral English is to communicate with native speakers. Therefore, if you have the conditions, direct dialogue is the best choice. But if there is no such exchange conditions, students can use the Internet to obtain free resources. For example, watching and listening to videos and movies in related languages is also helpful. Finally, students with a certain financial foundation can choose to apply for related courses, which is also a quick way.
