1. Think in English

2. The idea of Communication

The smile itself communicates the message of happiness. You might not even have to hunt for an advanced level of Vocabulary for the same.
So, to speak English fluently, consider the language as a medium to convey your message.

3.Do Not Think Aloud
Have you ever thought how the listeners feel when you introduce yourself as "I am 'aaaa' John; 'eeeeaaa' living in 'aaaamm' New York."? Yes, you sound strange, unsure and maybe less confident!
That's why it is advisable NOT to think aloud especially by making sounds like 'ahh', 'aaaamm', 'aaaa'; the list goes on.
Join my online English class on I Speak You Speak English where I'll teach you how to overcome this problem of thinking aloud while speaking.

4. Known Vocabulary
Forget it! Difficult words used incorrectly fail to impress even the most illiterate audience. Pick up words whose meaning and application you understand. It could be phrases as simple as a 'bright girl'. When you are confident of the words you are using in the Conversation, your fluency improves considerably.

5. Speak Daily
You want everyone to admire the confidence with which you use the English language. You have to work hard for it. Speak English every day. Read books, newspapers, websites but SPEAK SPEAK and SPEAK.
