In the today’s world, where competition has become a part of life, communication skills play a major role irrespective of the profession. One is no longer confined to any state or nation. We have attained the stature of global citizen. One of the most widely spoken languages in the world is English. In this, spoken English is on the highest priority. Speaking in English is now a second nature to those who have good exposure. In spite of this, there are many children who still struggle with basic English. Speaking in English clubbed up with the public speaking skills can bring a great transformation in one’s life. Most of the children are not properly exposed to new avenues and are panicky though they are potential performers. The best way to overcome the fear factor is to start speaking whatever way one can. Just as the Rome was not built in a day, one cannot become John Milton overnight. One may feel discouraged due to initial fumblings but that is the first step to excellence. One should start speaking! Speaking in English, learning structures and new words daily will surely help in improving one’s English. One shall make English a way of life to master it.

English is an internationally spoken language. Good usage of English plays a major role in being successful. . Most of the students learn each and everything by mugging up. .But actually a student should learn English like his mother tongue. Just as we can speak our mother tongue fluently, we should also speak in English fluently. First students should learn how to listen and speak which are primary skills. After perfecting this, they should know how to read and write which are secondary skills .
Teachers should concentrate less on textbook knowledge. Marks should be awarded for speaking and listening which is how the student can easily improve his English skills. My suggestion to all students is that they all should communicate in English. Teachers should also teach pronunciation of words to students. Students should be aware of all the 44 sounds in English language. Carry Oxford Advanced Learner Dictionary, pocket edition with you everyday.
My teacher K. Dharma Kumar teaches us that in the case of English it is not marks that matters but the grip on the language.
