Teach yourself a speech or monologue


To begin, you should find your favorite scene from a movie or play, or a joke from your favorite stand-up comedian, and memorize it.

首先,你可以从电影或戏剧中找一个最喜欢的场景,或者从你最喜欢的脱口秀演员那里找到一个段子,并记住 它。

Read the passage and underline or highlight any phrases or expressions you don’t know. Look them up and practice using them in sentences so you can get comfortable using them. Then, take the monologue or speech and break it down into small sections. Start with memorizing just a few sentences at a time.



Memorize your favorite quotes

to repeat out loud


If you’ve spent any time on social media, you know that quotes are an incredible way to connect with and inspire people instantly. And, if you don’t feel ready to memorize a speech yet, you should start with memorizing quotes.



Memorize your favorite song,

and sing it!


In a 2013 study conducted at the Reid School of Music in Edinburgh, researchers discovered that adults who sang in a new language instead of just speaking it performed better on a series of language tests.

2013年,爱丁堡里德音乐学院(Reid School of Music In Edinburgh)进行了一项研究,研究人员发能把新语言唱出来的成年人,比那些只能说出来的成年人,在一系列语言测试中表现更佳。

For your first song, try not to choose something that’s too challenging or fast-paced, but do choose a song that you really enjoy so that you’ll want to listen to it again and again.



Memorize a poem that speaks to you


Poetry is often powerful and emotional, and anything that can help you connect emotion to learning English will help you retain more vocabulary.


And, just like with the quotes, you can give yourself a small goal of memorizing a short poem every week and reciting it out loud to anyone who will listen.



Have a discussion with yourself


If this idea sounds good to you, give yourself the initial goal of answering three questions a day out loud. You can record yourself or write your answers down, too, but make sure that you actually answer the questions out loud.



Dictate your ideas instead of

writing them down


It takes a little bit of practice to get used to dictation in the beginning, so be patient with yourself. To start, create a Dictation Diary and commit to dictating your thoughts for five minutes a day or fifteen minutes per week.

一开始,你需要一些练习才能习惯口述 ,所以要对自己有耐心。首先,创建一个口述日记,并保证每天花五分钟或每周十五分钟来口述你的想法。


Use a voice recording app


If you’re someone who likes to review yourself to check your progress and listen for mistakes, you should definitely try using a voice recording app.


You can use this to record yourself reciting a speech, singing a song, or reciting a poem, but you can also use it to record your thoughts.



Record yourself speaking on video


If you’re just starting out with this method, I recommend recording a video of yourself speak once a week. And give yourself some guidelines for what you will talk about. Are you going to teach something or discuss something? Review your favorite horror movie? Just share your thoughts of the day?



Check-in with your progress

once a month


Practicing a skill like speaking on your own can be tough. But you’ll make more progress if you check-in with your goals every month.


Ask yourself: Are you making fewer mistakes? How many new English phrases or expressions have you learned? Have you memorized a speech, a song, or a poem? Do you feel more comfortable when you’re speaking?



Know when to ask for help


If you’re feeling stuck or that you’re not making enough progress, I highly recommend reaching out to an English teacher to help you figure out your own self-study path.
