[00:00.00]One of the English teachers at my university got into a taxi one day,and as she talked with the driver,
[00:05.54]she noticed that he had very good spoken English,better ,in fact,than that of some of her students!
[00:10.98]" Where did you learn your English?" she asked,"oh," he replied,"I never went to secondary school.
[00:16.13]I drive a taxi every day,but while I'm driving around,I listen to the English radio stations-and if an English speaking passenger gets in,
[00:24.66]I try to start a conversation with them.
[00:26.75]That's how I learn my English!
[00:29.09]There are many things which contribute to good spoken English,but an important question for you is this: to what extent are your attitudes similar to those of the taxi driver?
[00:38.41]Are you willing to try to start a conversation with an English speaker?
[00:41.62]Or do you feel as if "the cat did get your tongue?"that whenever you try to speak in English,your tongue won't behave itself and you can hardly make a sound?
[00:49.82]How then can you improve your spoken English?How can you try to put your resolution to improve into practice?
[00:55.66]Here we will suggest some concrete things you can do on your own(for little or no money) to improve your English-spoken English in particular.
[01:03.36]Listen to the radio.You could get up five minutes earlier and listen to the news in English.
[01:08.47]Watch the TVB_Pearl and ATV-world to improve your listening skills.
[01:13.01]Try watching the news in English instead of Chinese.
[01:16.03]If you watch a movie and it has subtitles ,try taping a paper over them,
[01:20.17]Listening to others talk is a good preparation for talking yourself.
[01:24.60]Invite your English teacher to lunch! Find a friend who also wants to improve his or her English have lunch or dinner together-speaking English of course.

[03:56.20]Everyone knows that the only really effective way to improve on language skills is to use the language.
[04:01.99]In reality,hower,we know that there are many reasons why people don't want to speak in another language-they are afraid of making mistakes.
[04:09.23]they can't express their real meaning easily ,they are shy,they are afraid people will laugh at them .
[04:14.38]We all feel this way some of the time but if you really want to improve your spoken English,try some of the suggestions we have made here.
[04:21.61]Once you try putting some these ideas and principles into practice,the cat will have a very hard time getting your togue!
