You want to know how to speak English fluently. No technique or tip will help you unless start speaking English.
When I say start speaking English, you can speak one or two sentences.
Start repeating small sentences when you read or understand a concept.
Let me take you through some examples.
Suppose, you learning modal verb ‘would’ and you come across following sentences:
Would you like to have tea?
Would you like to join my company?
Where would like to celebrate your birthday?
How would you overcome this challenge?
Speak every sentence three to four times. This practice will help you train your tongue to speak English easily.
Here is one more example.
Many times people around you use a particular sentence time and again. You have accidently memorized it.
Speak these sentences three to four times before a mirror such as:
Your father says:
I want you to become more responsible.
Your friend says:
Whatever happens, it happens for a good reason.
Your father says:
You always forget your homework.
Your boss or trainer says:
Don’t waste your time. If you waste your time, you waste your life.
The best approach is to practice speaking new concepts you learn by reading a book or watching YouTube videos.

#3. Practice Translation
When you want to learn a new language, translation practice plays a significant role.
It gives you confidence to speak and write English.
I am not saying you need to have thorough understanding of all concepts before you start speaking English.
You don’t even have thorough understanding of your mother tongue.
We hardly use 2000-4000 words in our everyday conversation.
The translation practice helps you understand the right sentence structure and common grammar practice.
It also helps you overcome common grammar mistakes.
You need validation to speak English. In other words, you want to know if you speak correct English or not.
The translation practice provides you with a strong foundation to learn and speak English.

#4. Learn to Emote
To build confidence in English practice different tone of voices.
Speak twenty sentences politely, next twenty with a high voice, following twenty in your regular tone and so on.
Remember in your mother tongue when you want to shout you shout, you want to whisper you whisper.
In English, you use the same tone of voice and this hampers your confidence level.
Practicing different sounds will give you extra confidence.

#5. Speak English Slowly
Can you start running without learning walking?
Your obvious answer is ‘No’.
But most of us want to speak English fluently before we start speaking English.
I meet numerous people who say that they cannot speak English fluently.
When I ask them a couple of questions I find that they are not able to speak English at all.
You will automatically become fluent once you start speaking English.
Nobody teaches you to run.
Your parents teach you how to walk.
The day you are able to walk properly, you start running without any further training.
Hence, speak English clearly and slowly.
Once you are able to speak well, fluency will follow.
#6. Describe Your Routine in English
If you want to know how to improve English Speaking skills, here is the solution
The best way to speak English is to repeat your whole day.
Repeat everything like what you did, what you experienced and what you discussed with others.
Initially, you will take 10-15 minutes to repeat your whole day, and within 10-15 days you will start taking 20-30 minutes to repeat your whole day.
