Do you want to talk fast in English or maybe you’re looking for tips to understand native English speakers better? Well, you’ve come to the right place! In this lesson, we’ll give you some handy tricks that English speakers use when they speak fast.

Build a strong vocabulary: The more words you know, the faster you can speak. Build your vocabulary by reading, listening and actively learning new words.

Practice listening: Listen to native speakers, whether through films, podcasts or conversations. Pay attention to their pace, rhythm and intonation.

Speak regularly: Practice speaking English regularly. Talk to native speakers or language partners. The more you speak, the more comfortable and fluent you’ll become.

Work on your pronunciation: Clear and accurate pronunciation is essential for speaking quickly. Practice speaking clearly and consider working with a pronunciation coach or using language learning apps.

Think in English: As you become more fluent, try thinking in English rather than translating from your native language. This will help you respond more quickly in conversation.

Use contractions: Use contractions such as “I am”, “you are”, “won’t”, “can’t” and the contractions mentioned in a previous answer (e.g. gonna, wanna). They make your speech more fluent and natural.

 

Remember that speaking quickly doesn’t mean sacrificing clarity. It’s important to strike a balance between speed and clear communication.
