Hi, I’m Oli. Welcome to Oxford Online English! In this lesson, you can learn how to speak

more fluently in English.

How long have you been studying English? Do you find that sometimes that even though you

study hard, you can’t speak fluently? Do you learn lots of grammar and vocabulary,

but you find it difficult to make sentences when you speak.

In this lesson, we’re going to talk about fluency and what you can do to change this

situation and improve your English fluency.

Part one: what is fluency?

Sometimes, when people talk about fluency, they just mean speaking a language well. For

some people, speaking English fluently just means having a good general level of English.

However, fluency is more specific than that. Fluency means you can speak smoothly, without

stopping or hesitating.

There are two sides to fluency. One side is physical: your mouth needs to produce and

connect English sounds and words in a fast, smooth way.

The other side of fluency is mental: your brain needs to find the right words and build

English sentences quickly and smoothly.

To improve your fluency, you need to work on both sides: physical and mental.

But first…

Part two: rule number one: get out there!

There are many things you can do to improve your English fluency.

However, if you want to become more fluent, there’s really one thing you have to do.
