Free English Conversations with AUDIO
The objective of learning a language is to communicate to other people correctly. Conversations are crucial to us and students need to practice listening to them so that they can later use phrases and structures when they communicate orally.
Talking in English is something that many students avoid. There are many reasons. Some feel their grammar isn’t that solid, others are too worried about pronunciation and many just are afraid of making terrible mistakes. But my question is: “How are you going to improve your oral communication if you do not practice?” If you avoid speaking in English and participating actively in English Conversations you will not improve.
Many students tend to concentrate on reading books and studying rules and this practice can help but only to a point. Remember how you learned your native language. Did you learn grammar rules? When you speak naturally do you translate or think about tenses and structures? The answer is “no”. We learn naturally by listening. When you were a child you listened to people speaking to you and made deductions of the meaning. Then you copied and repeated those same phrases.
This is why it is important to listen to conversations so that we can learn phrases and them incorporate them in our own vocabulary. Grammar can help but to obtain fluency it is important to listen and to repeat to real English conversations.
