Our drill book has been created to assist students practice speaking. While this book was created with basic sentence structures, it is not intended to teach grammar. The primary focus for this book is simply to help students practice speaking in short phrases.
We have found that many students need to practice speaking with repetition. To do this, we recommend you start at the beginning of the book and read out loud. Ask a friend to listen to you read and speak. Ask a friend to listen to your pronunciation. Preferably a native English speaking friend or teacher should help you.
As you read and speak, pay close attention to short form (contractions) pronunciation. Remember that speakers of English use short form regularly. It’s how native English speakers talk. Spoken English can be challenging for most students at the early stages of development.
Continue to practice your reading and speaking skills until you feel you can speak with confidence. Once you feel comfortable with your practice speaking, ask someone to listen to you read out loud. Once you feel your speaking and pronunciation has improved, ask a qualified English teacher to listen to you. Ask the teacher to help you with pronunciation, intonation, word stress and punctuations.
