Hi guys, welcome back to my channel I'm Maggie today
We're going to talk about five things that you should do every single day to improve your spoken English
These are all things that's helped me tremendously and I continue to do them every single day
So I can't wait to share with you
If you like this video give it a thumbs up subscribe to my channel and turn on the post notifications now
Let's get started. First thing. I recommend doing is definitely
Mimicking TV shows I have talked about this one
Extensively on my channel and I'll say it again today because it works
But I'm definitely not saying that you should just do this randomly to any TV shows. You should probably pick something. That's more
Conversational and something that's more
Realistic. So here are four shows that I really recommend if you want to practice an American accent first to the
classics friends and How I Met Your Mother
Next one is that 70s show? It's just really funny
I personally really like it and the office these four shows are all very good resources to practice English with
But the most important thing when it comes to mimicking TV shows is your method first step
You can read the script and record yourself
Before you hear the actors say the words now. Where do you find the script?
There's a website most of the scripts you can find on this website. I'll link it in the description box as well
This step is so important because only if you know where you make the mistake
Can you find how you can improve it?
For example this sentence you could say how are things at the library if you didn't know that at?
This word act is supposed to pronounce at at the library
You probably say how are things at the library?
So if you record yourself and then you hear the actors talk then you can find where you did wrong
Do you see what I'm saying?
A second two steps is to hear the actors say and then record yourself
Again, mimicking how the actors are saying it. It's a lot of fun
I think you'll like it start trying it today second one is to read the newspaper
You don't have to go out and buy a newspaper. We all have apps on our phone and it's free. So it's so convenient
It's in your hand literally in your hand. The reason why I love to read the news to practice English. It's because
The style the writers use to write the news is so precise and most importantly
You learn how to tell a story
so you can practice your spoken English and
You can learn a couple of sentence structures that you can use when it comes to reading English
For example this one under a bridge connecting the u.s
With Mexico dozens of migrant families crammed into a makeshift camp set up by US Customs and Border Protection
So this sentence is basically three different sentences made into one
The main one is dozens of migrant families crammed into a makeshift camp, right?
And then the second one is the camp. The camp's location is under a bridge connecting the u.s
With Mexico and is set up by US Customs and Border Protection
So if in the future something similar happens for example my cat
Had some snacks. Where did he had the snack?
It was under my table next to the computer
Set out by me under my table next to the computer my cat ate some snacks
Set out by me. It's a little mini practice. You set for yourself
You don't just read the newspaper
You learn the sentence structure and by replacing a complicated issue
With something that really happens in your life
You learn how to use that sentence structure so that to me is so important and so useful when it comes to improving
Not just your spoken English
But your written English as well step three is to write down new words
You just learned maybe from the TV show you were watching or the news you were reading
what's more important is to know how to use this word on your own but
Sometimes even when you did everything you could online you looked it up online and you typed in use this word in a sentence
You're still not sure if you're using this word, right? That's when you need to talk to a native speaker and ask them
How should I use this word?
Am I using this right now? You may ask where do I find someone that's available?
And he's had my watch cambly
Kimbley can connect you with a native speaker
Anytime and anywhere you want and you can decide how long?
You want to talk to this teacher for if you only have tours and you want to talk to them for about five minutes?
You can do that or you have a lot of materials or you want to take a formal lesson that's available, too
that's why I love this app so much because there's no
Huge commitment that you have to make speaking of which let's go on can't believe and talk to a teacher
Hi, hi John, I'm good. How are you?
Okay, thanks. So I have a question. I recently just learned this new word
Preoccupied so I was wondering it
If I'm using it, right? Yes, thank you
So if I want to say I was busy with something I say I was preoccupied with it
Because you're thinking about
Someone called my name and I didn't hear them because I was thinking about something else. Maybe I could say I
Was preoccupied with others exactly exactly
Yeah with that makes people think that I don't I don't I don't respect them

Now, let's move on to the final tip recap and record at the end of the day every day before you go to bed
You can sit there and just think in English
Pure English environment. Talk to yourself
Today, I woke up at about 8 o'clock, and I didn't want to get up
So I stayed on my phone for a little while just described the whole day and according on your phone now
Here comes the important part is that next day?
Write out everything that you record it yesterday because when you write it out
You notice a lot of little mistake grammar mistakes
I know I make a lot of mistakes
But it's impossible for me to know while I'm making it when I'm talking but if I go back and I add
Subtitles on my video that's where I find a lot of my mistakes. So if you do that consistently
Every single day your English is going to improve a lot
So those are the five things that I think you should do every single day to practice
Spoken English and it really works if you're really serious about this
Even if you can just do one thing a day if you do it, right?
That's a win and it's going to work with time
