  • Hello all. I'm Lynn.

  • Thanks for watching my video.

  • Today I'm going to help you improve your English conversation ability

  • by changing you from a shy timid student

  • into a confident talkative student.

  • This is a very important video so keep watching.

  • A lot of my students are very shy.

  • In fact some of them are so shy that they're afraid to try their English at all.

  • Some of them are even afraid of foreigners.

  • Now I know speaking in English can seem very scary

  • and you might be too shy to try

  • but let me tell you, if you never practice

  • speaking in English, you'll never improve your English.

  • English is a skill which means you need lots of practice

  • and lots of practice speaking in order to get better.

  • Now if you are one of those very shy students, that's okay.

  • I have some tips for you to help get you speaking in English.

  • the first tip I'm gonna tell you is

  • Speak to yourself.

  • maybe the thought of speaking to someone else in English

  • is so scary that you just can't do it.

  • Well just start talking to yourself then.

  • In the mirror or out loud at home.

  • That is going to help you practice speaking

  • Another tip is - read out loud.

  • This one is actually very simple.

  • Take any English text that you want a book or anything

  • and read it out loud to yourself.

  • This will help you feel more confident about speaking English.

  • Another tip that works well is

  • Talking to younger people.

  • Younger people - you can have conversation with them a little bit easier .

  • And so, speaking to younger people in English is

  • also going to help boost your confidence.

  • Another tip that I tell my students is try to improve your listening first.

  • Sometimes, students are shy to speak English because

  • they don't quite understand what they're hearing.

  • So if you improve your listening a little bit first,

  • this will encourage you to speak more in English.

  • Another tip is - start chatting first.

  • If you start the conversation with someone else first,

  • then you can decide a topic that's comfortable for you to talk about in English.

  • And don't be afraid of making mistakes. Just go for it.

  • The last tip I'm gonna tell you is - push yourself.

  • Speaking English can feel uncomfortable and you might feel shy

  • but if you don't push yourself, you'll never improve.

  • So I encourage you to speak up and try.

  • English is not easy.

  • But you can improve with just a little bit of effort.

  • Don't be afraid to speak up in English and don't be afraid of foreigners.

  • I know you guys can do it.

  • Try hard.

  • Thanks for watching.

  • See you next time.

  • Let me know in the comments how you overcome shyness.

  • And don't forget to keep supporting my channel.

  • See you.
