Description: You have done a good job if you studied boring and complicated grammar, rules, and tenses of the English language. But spoken English requires practice. In this article, we have prepared several unusual and interesting ways how you can improve your spoken English.

Can I Learn English by Myself?
Due to the development of modern technologies, everybody can learn any language he/she wants without leaving home. Though it can be challenging, it is possible to learn English by yourself too. You can find various listening and speaking strategies to learn English without a tutor. There are people who need to have a tutor around them to help them to practice. For others, learning English by your efforts means money and time-saving.

Why Can't I Speak English Fluently?
The English language is one of the most difficult languages to speak fluently. You may ask why? English has strange rules with many exceptions, and this language is not very similar to any other language; some words have confusing pronunciation. Of course, you can memorize all the rules and tenses, but it is just half of the success. If you want to speak fluently, there is a need to practice all the time. You have to improve your speaking skills regularly.

How Can I Improve My English-Speaking Skills?
We said previously that the key to success is practice. If you learn English with your tutor, he/she will assist you in improving your speaking. But you may ask how to improve your speaking skills if you are learning English by yourself. Among the most widespread ways of improving spoken English are reading books on English, taking notes of new words, communicating with native speakers, going abroad, watching videos in English (movies, cartoons, YouTube channels, etc.) But these ways are outdated. The world changes, and there is a need to use unusual and modern ways of improving your speaking skills. Below we prepared the most interesting ways for you.

Practice in Foreign Chat-Roulette
Chat-Roulette is not only a good way to find friends and simply communicate with different people. Use foreign chat-roulette to improve your speaking skills. You simply have to find foreigners and start to speak. In the beginning, you can be shy as your spoken English is far from perfect. But when you spend some time on practice, it will be hard to differentiate you from a native speaker.

But different and strange people can use chat roulette. There are many scammers who can easily find out your IP address. Therefore, we advise you to use an IP address checker and hide your IP.

Do not forget that my IP address is private data, and VeePN can help you to hide it. Use this IP checker when you want to check IP, change, and hide it from scammers. This tool is reliable, and moreover, it is free.

Speak English at Home
Improving English speaking skills is a regular activity. You cannot simply speak for one day with your foreign friend online and forget about speaking practice for one week. Your foreign friend can not always be online. But we know those who are always near you. We speak about the people with whom you are living. With them, you will not be shy to speak English every day. Begin to speak English when you just wake up, speak about your plans for the day, tell about news on a job or college, tell about how your day passed. Even if they do not speak English at all, you can then translate what you have said. Simply speaking, you have to pretend that you can speak only English.
