PDF | Spoken English is a book designed for second language learners who wish to improve their conversational English. In addition to. In spoken English, many people say 'cause as a short form of “because.” “So” is more informal, and more commonly used in spoken English. We were hungry. From quicker access to faster learning, English PDF lessons can potentially reduce study time by up to 50% compared with conventional classroom instruction.

Sometimes the placing the stress on the wrong syllable completely changes the word. Learn to hear the difference! Sing Along to English Songs Singing along to your favorite English songs will help you become more fluent. Once you can sing along to Taylor Swift and Jason Mraz , you can test your skills with something a bit more difficult: rap!

Rap is a great way to practice English because often the words are spoken like regular sentences. However, the rapper uses a stronger rhythm and faster speed. Make speaking easier by learning the different forms of any words you learn. Knowing the correct way to use a word in any kind of sentence is important. This knowledge will help you while speaking.

Learn Phrases, Not Words An even better idea to improve English is to learn word phrases, not just words. Phrases and expressions can be helpful for sounding more natural when you speak. Learn Your Most Common Sayings Take some time to really notice how you speak in your native language.

What words and phrases do you use the most often? Learn how to say your most commonly used phrases and words in English.

Knowing them in English will help you speak as well in English as you do in your native language. Prepare for Specific Situations Are you learning English speaking for a specific reason? For example, are you learning English so you can get a job in an English-speaking company?

Before you go to a place where you have to speak English, you can practice what you might have to say. Answer the questions a waiter might ask you. Try talking about food and menus.

You can be your best helper or your worst enemy when learning to speak fluently! Just relax! What has been your biggest success so far? What efforts you made to pull it off? How it changed your life? Which is the best season of the year? Summer is the best and worst of times. What are the three biggest problems your city faces? Three surprising things about me are… How do you plan a party? What is your dream job? What ten questions would you ask?

What is your favorite book? Most successful person I know is… Most memorable moment of your life Worst moment of your life Should internet access be limited?

Have you been bullied? How did you tackle it? Movies are providing cues to people to commit crime. Should the movie content be regulated for this? Should physical education be compulsory up to High School? Should students be graded for their handwriting in schools? Intermediate-level conversation topics Should animals be subjected to scientific and commercial tests? What impact does social networking sites have on society? Is the grading system used in colleges effective?

Do celebrities have higher chance of getting away with crime than non-celebrities?

Should nuclear energy be exploited for commercial purpose or abandoned because of associated risks? Are humans to blame for certain animal extinctions?

Should we kill animals for food? Is peer pressure harmful or beneficial to individuals? Should cigarettes be banned? Do celebrities make for bad role models? Are credit cards worse than debit cards? Should zoos be banned because they keep animals in confinement?

Should sex education be banned in schools? Are we too dependent on computers? Does money motivate people more than any other thing in the workplace?

Is boarding school system better than day-school system? How can bullying and ragging be stopped in schools and colleges? Are video games responsible for bad behavior among children? Which is better: daydreaming or night-dreaming?

Is there life after death? If you could transform into an animal, which animal would it be and why? If you could go into past through a time machine, which era would you like to go into and why? Whom would you prefer to date — attractive and popular or intelligent and smart?

Which is better to have as a pet — cat or dog? The instructor often praises them for their valiant effort, in spite of the reality that they are learning to use English incorrectly. The student will now need to spend even more time relearning the correct syntax. You would repeat the recorded lesson material which was accurate in every detail. For the entire instruction period, you would work by yourself while repeating the exercise sentences hundreds of times.

Needless to say, in two weeks' time, you would have spoken English correctly far more than had you been passively sitting in a traditional English class. But more to the point, everything you would have learned would have been correct.

Your syntax would have been correct. Your use of the English verb would have been correct. And, as much as possible, your pronunciation would have been correct.

To continue the example, say that it was now time for you to begin trying free speech.

Spoken English Books

Yet, we still would not want you to make mistakes. Consequently, all free speaking would be taken directly from the many sentences you would have already learned. Subsequently, you would be given questions to answer which would use the same structure as the sentences you already knew, but now you would substitute other vocabulary words which would be in the same lessons.

You will do much better if you seek ways in which you can speak English correctly from the very beginning. Strike a careful balance between free speech and forcing yourself to follow a pattern of correct English use. Do everything in your power to use English correctly.

Later, however, you will need to spend a great deal of time talking with others. Nonetheless, every time you encounter new syntax in English, use controlled language drills long enough so that your mind becomes thoroughly familiar with correct sentence structure and pronunciation. As you progress in your English study, begin reading English newspaper articles aloud.

Look for examples of new vocabulary and sentence format. Mark the sentences, verify the vocabulary, and then read—and repeat from recall memory—the sentences aloud until they become a part of your speech. The issue is not whether or not you need to know English grammar.

The question is, "How do you learn English grammar best? As I progressed through primary school and on into secondary school, my language ability matured as a result of my home and school environments. In retrospect, I believe this is what happened: for the most part, I used proper sentence structure and pronunciation because that is what I heard in my home. However, when I went to school, I needed to learn grammar. I—like probably most of my classmates—did not learn to speak because I studied grammar.

Rather, I was able to learn how to do grammar exercises because I already knew how to speak. Certainly, I learned many important things about English through grammar study. But it was of importance to me only because I had already achieved basic English fluency. I did not learn to speak English as a result of English grammar lessons. I also took two years of Spanish in secondary school. We started with basic grammar.

We wrote exercises every day. But we almost never heard spoken Spanish, much less spoke it ourselves. Within 10 years of my secondary school graduation, I spent a year in Paris studying French. I had the great fortune of enrolling in a French language school that emphasized spoken French to the complete exclusion of written exercises. Not only did I learn French grammar—meaning that I learned to use sentences that communicated what I intended to say to a French listener—but because French and Spanish verb construction is similar, I also began to understand the Spanish grammar which made no sense to me in secondary school.

Because I could read and write in English, I had no difficulty reading French. It was a simple transfer of knowledge from reading in English to reading in French.

Later, I studied an African language. Because school-based language courses were almost non- existent in that country, all of my language training was done by way of recorded language drills that I adapted from local radio broadcasts. I also had a university student as my language helper.

Yet, I learned how to structure a sentence which is applied grammar and write in that language much more quickly than had I been studying grammar and writing independently of the spoken language. Traditional English instruction for non-English-speaking students has reversed the process with poor results. Most English classes teach grammar as a foundation for spoken English.

The quickest way to teach students to read English is to teach them to speak it first. The fastest way to teach them sufficient grammar to pass college entrance exams is to build a foundation by teaching them to speak English fluently.

Whenever the process is reversed, it takes a needlessly long time to succeed in teaching grammar and writing skills, much less fluent spoken English. The fastest way for you to learn excellent English grammar is to learn it while speaking. When you have repeated the sentences enough times so that they sound correct to you, you will have learned English grammar. But the grammar is learned by speaking, not by writing.

Do not misunderstand what I am saying. You cannot speak any language well without knowing its grammar because grammar consists of the rules used to put words together into meaningful sentences. In English, we can use a given number of words to make a statement or ask a question by the way in which we order the words and use inflection.

Simply stated, placing the words in the correct order is applied grammar. English is unintelligible without it. The question is, "How will you learn English grammar best? When is the best time to learn that the sentence, "That is a book," is an English statement, and the sentence, "Is that a book?

The best time is when you simultaneously learn to speak these two sentences. That would take place while you are learning many other similar sentences so that you will develop a cognitive sense reinforced by motor skill and auditory feedback. You will learn that the order and inflection of the one sentence is a question, while the other is a statement. The sound of the sentence is as much an indicator of its meaning as its written form. There is also a relationship between good pronunciation and good spelling.

I am a poor speller. I understand that I misspell many words because I probably mispronounce them. At some point, everyone who expects to write English well must learn to spell. Yet, it will probably be faster for you to learn good spelling after learning good pronunciation than it will be for you to learn good spelling without being able to speak. In practice, you will learn the spelling of new English words as they are added to the vocabulary of each new lesson.

I am not saying that grammar or spelling are unnecessary. Rather, I am saying that grammar can be taught more effectively—and in less time—by using audio language drills. Teaching grammar by means of spoken language has the great advantage of reinforcing the cognitive learning of grammar while using two additional functions found in normal speech—motor skill feedback and auditory feedback. Teaching grammar as a written exercise does develop cognitive learning, but it reinforces it with visual feedback.

Though visual feedback has some merit, it is outside the context of spoken English. The single reinforcement of visual feedback outside of the spoken English context is far less effective than motor skill feedback and auditory feedback which are both inside the spoken language context.

The trade-off is costly and retards progress. Far more is gained when you learn to identify correct grammar by the way a sentence sounds, rather than by the way it looks. Though it would not typically be explained this way, it is also important on a subconscious level that you learn how correct grammar feels. As a function of the proprioceptive sense, a statement produces a certain sequence of sensory feedback from the mouth, tongue, and air passages that feels different than a question.

It would take considerably longer to teach a language student how to write English grammar exercises, and then speak English correctly, than it would to teach the same student to first speak English correctly, and then introduce rules of grammar.

If you study spoken English for a year, you will gain a great deal of fluency. With that spoken English fluency, you will have a good understanding of English grammar. If you spend the same amount of time in English grammar study, you will have limited English fluency and will have little practical understanding of English grammar.

That is probably why you are reading this book. You have undoubtedly studied written English for a long time, but you still can't speak English very well. The kind of sentences which you use as a beginning student are the same kind of sentences which you must master as an advanced student in order to gain English fluency. As a beginning English student, you must learn English in the context of full sentences. As an advanced student, you must use the same sentences to perfect syntax and intonation.

Your perceived needs as you begin studying English will significantly influence how you answer this chapter's title question. If you decide that you need beginning English when you start your study, you will spend much time looking for lessons with beginning sentences because English does not speak a beginning language.

On the other hand, if you decide that the English used in the daily newspaper is what you want to learn, you can easily find that kind of English language. I am really asking if beginning and advanced students can use the same level of lessons to learn spoken English.

Before you give an intuitive answer, I need to ask the question properly. The question is, "Does English have multiple, specialized language divisions? Modern English does not even have a specialized construction for folklore.

Many languages in which oral tradition has been preserved have a storytelling form of the language which is distinct from the language used in everyday conversation. In these languages, there are often specialists who recount folktales in public gatherings. Common English has none of that. In fact, English is so simple in this regard that we do not even have two forms of address for people of differing social standing.

French, for instance, has strict conventions regarding the use of "tu" or "vous" when addressing someone. Any student who has taken courses in anatomy, law, physics, automotive technology, psychology, engineering, geology, or anthropology has spent a great deal of time learning specialized terminology.

But the essential English syntax which holds these words together in a sentence is still the language of the street—or the language of the daily newspaper.

So, aside from specialized vocabularies, English has no divisions representing varying levels of language complexity.And listen. The great thing about PDF lessons, tools or files is that they can be quickly printed and taken anywhere after you download them.

Even try to use an English-to-English dictionary to look up words.

Free book downloads for English language learners

Once you download English lessons in PDF format to your smartphone, PC or favorite media device, they are yours to use and keep forever. This knowledge will help you while speaking. Not only did I learn French grammar—meaning that I learned to use sentences that communicated what I intended to say to a French listener—but because French and Spanish verb construction is similar, I also began to understand the Spanish grammar which made no sense to me in secondary school.

Of course, you would want help with incorrect syntax and pronunciation. Your goal is to retrain your mind, hearing, and mouth to understand and use English correctly.
