I think you already know that if you want to improve your English speaking skills, you

have to practice, right? You have to speak. Studying grammar will never improve your speaking.

Listening to English alone will never improve your speaking.

You have to actually speak.

But what if you don't have someone to talk to in English? How can you practice then?

Well, there's a technique that allows you to learn to speak English by yourself. No

speaking partner is required. This technique can help improve many aspects of your spoken

English: your sentence structure, your grammar, your vocabulary, and most importantly, your

ability to express your thoughts and ideas effectively.

So what is this technique?

Well, here's what it is...

Learning to speak English through imitation.

When I say imitation, I'm not talking about repeating after native speakers using the

exact same words to improve your pronunciation. I'm talking about something a little more

advanced than that.

Here's how it works: you listen to a conversation, a story, or some kind of speech, and then

try to deliver that speech in your own words.

Let's see this technique in action:
