How to speak better English when you have nobody to talk to

  1. Go to YouTube
  2. Find a video that you understand and also has subtitles
  3. Listen to the speaker
  4. Copy the speaker as closely as you can. Try to sound exactly the same.
  5. When you have a problem, stop and repeat it slowly until you get it right, then try it again at normal speed.
  6. Do this every day for five minutes a day.

Remember, speaking is a physical exercise, like running or martial arts. You must exercise your mouth, tongue and voice. Also, the best way to speak better English is to talk to somebody. Still not ready? Well, maybe someday.


  1. You are so right about speaking being like a physical exercise…I also like the idea of speaking to he mirror or talking to yourself….like that famous Robert de Niro scene…”you talkin’ to me…you talkin’ to me?”
