Stop doing these things if you want to learn English.

I chose to write a helpful article telling them what to do really if you want to speak English easily.
I've been always talking about things you should do to improve your English, but now I'm going to talk about things that you should never do if you want to learn English, I mean real English not textbook English to be clear.

Don't study grammar
For most English students, this rule has always been so strange, because they always think that English can never be learned without studying English grammar, I'm inviting you to read one of my old posts tittled English Grammar to learn more about how can English grammar kill you skills and abilities.

Never be shy:
This is one of the most important rules if you want to speak English without thinking and with a good accent. But unfortunately, most English students don't care about it and don't focus on it. So I'm advising you to teach yourself to never be shy when you want to speak English. I know you think that your friends will laugh at you when they hear you speak English, but you're completely "WRONG", so be clever and don't be shy.

Never speak English when listening to English:
This is also an important rule, there are two things: listening and speaking, and you should not do the two things simultaneously.
When you listen focus on listening in order to speak English very well.
I think this rule is simple and everybody can apply it, let's go to the next one.

Never try to remember English vocabulary:
Because vocabulary is going to be deeper into your brain if you followed my advices. You're welcome to read the 7 steps to English vocabulary to get more details and learn how to get more new English words in your memory without trying to memorize.

I hope that you enjoyed my rules, I'm ready to answer to your comments so don't hesitate.

How to learn English

My suggestion is: "Do something (anything). If you don't do anything, you won't get anything. Make it your hobby, not a chore, but above all have fun!"
Don't be in too much of a hurry. You're setting off on a long journey and there'll be delays and frustrations along the way. Sometimes you'll be in the fast lane and other times you'll be stuck in traffic, but there will also be lots of interesting things and interesting people along the way. Take your time to really enjoy the experience.
There are many ways to improve your level of English, but only you can find the right way for you. Here are a few tips that might help:-

Speak without Fear
The biggest problem most people face in learning a new language is their own fear. They worry that they won’t say things correctly or that they will look stupid so they don’t talk at all. Don’t do this. The fastest way to learn anything is to do it – again and again until you get it right. Like anything, learning English requires practice. Don’t let a little fear stop you from getting what you want.

Use all of your Resources
Even if you study English at a language school it doesn’t mean you can’t learn outside of class. Using as many different sources, methods and tools as possible, will allow you to learn faster. There are many different ways you can improve your English, so don’t limit yourself to only one or two. The internet is a fantastic resource for virtually anything, but for the language learner it's perfect.

Surround Yourself with English
The absolute best way to learn English is to surround yourself with it. Take notes in English, put English books around your room, listen to English language radio broadcasts, watch English news, movies and television. Speak English with your friends whenever you can. The more English material that you have around you, the faster you will learn and the more likely it is that you will begin “thinking in English.” .

Listen to Native Speakers as Much as Possible
There are some good English teachers that have had to learn English as a second language before they could teach it. However, there are several reasons why many of the best schools prefer to hire native English speakers. One of the reasons is that native speakers have a natural flow to their speech that students of English should try to imitate. The closer ESL / EFL students can get to this rhythm or flow, the more convincing and comfortable they will become.

Watch English Films and Television
This is not only a fun way to learn but it is also very effective. By watching English films (especially those with English subtitles) you can expand your vocabulary and hear the flow of speech from the actors. If you listen to the news you can also hear different accents.

Listen to English Music
Music can be a very effective method of learning English. In fact, it is often used as a way of improving comprehension. The best way to learn though, is to get the lyrics (words) to the songs you are listening to and try to read them as the artist sings. There are several good internet sites where one can find the words for most songs.This way you can practice your listening and reading at the same time. And if you like to sing, fine.

Study As Often As Possible!
Only by studying things like grammar and vocabulary and doing exercises, can you really improve your knowledge of any language.

Do Exercises and Take Tests
Many people think that exercises and tests aren't much fun. However, by completing exercises and taking tests you can really improve your English. One of the best reasons for doing lots of exercises and tests is that they give you a benchmark to compare your future results with. Often, it is by comparing your score on a test you took yesterday with one you took a month or six months ago that you realize just how much you have learned. If you never test yourself, you will never know how much you are progressing.Start now by doing some of the many exercises and tests on this site, and return in a few days to see what you've learned. Keep doing this and you really will make some progress with English.

Record Yourself
Nobody likes to hear their own voice on tape but like tests, it is good to compare your tapes from time to time. You may be so impressed with the progress you are making that you may not mind the sound of your voice as much.

Listen to English
By this, we mean, speak on the phone or listen to radio broadcasts, audiobooks or CDs in English. This is different than watching the television or films because you can’t see the person that is speaking to you. Many learners of English say that speaking on the phone is one of the most difficult things that they do and the only way to improve is to practice.

Have fun!

Speak English Nepal

The total number of people who can speak English, including those who speak it as a second language, is well over a billion.
English is a relatively easy language to learn. With a little practice, you should soon find yourself able to get by in most everyday situations.

So why learn English?

An international language
Learning to speak English will allow you to communicate with a massive number of people around the globe.

Boost your job prospects
In an increasingly inter-connected world, a good knowledge of English is a great advantage for many jobs. English is also the most widely used language for international business.

Any trip or stay in an English-speaking country will be greatly enriched if you can speak a little of the language. Even in countries where English isn't the local language, you will still find it enormously useful on your travels.

About this blog

The aim of Speak English Nepal is to provide a quality resource for adults who wish to learn English online for free.

The main thing to consider is that, this is an individual blog and i am not English teacher or some kind of English professional tutor or either a native English speaker.I am just a young student who is just trying to help other to lean English and also helping myself to learn English more efficiently.

So i think the way to learn English will be pretty simple . I will organize some  session on Skype [ an online service through which we can call anyone in anywhere for free and it has very good sound quality]. So people will meet there and can begin there conversation with each other.

But whenever u will send me the request in Skype then you have to send me your details about your English level and other info

level of English

So these are the things which i will need later to distinguish people for their class session which will help them to learn the English according to their level of knowledge 
The session will be run from 11:00 am to 3:00pm< sunday to friday>
and the account name of Skype is  speakenglishnepal.
Okay,so i think we will meet there and will begin to learn the English.
Hope you all will love the idea and co-operate with me.
