The practice of Spoken English receives our immediate attention and we are always set to receive tips from the experienced learners.

We have got to avoid stumbling and stuttering when we make utterances in English. Catenation is one aspect which should be a part of our practice. The consonant at one end of a word gets synthesized with the vowel at the beginning of the next word. Each sound of a sequence should be added to the next sequence and the complete sequence should be practiced as rapidly as necessary.
Many of us tend to ignore our listening skill and we have to keep in our mind that it is an important constituent of Ear-Training.

Spoken Practice is not simply the practice of the phonemic and phonetic aspects of a single word. The grammatical, or sense-groups are taken up, but not each individual word of a sentence. While studying the Native Variety of Pronunciation, the Colloquial Style is prescribed for the L2 learners of English.

We have to practice good timing and we have to give a strategic pause while making our long utterances. But, Pausing should not be unreasonably long, as it may cause irritation to the audience. Every pause that we take should be a dramatic pause. It is to enhance the intelligibility of the listener as he is also using his second-language skill and he may have his own difficulty. Let there not is an assumption that it is for the purposes of dramatization and the enacting of a role.

The second-language user should enunciate his English words clearly and this will also increase the intelligibility. We should take such a great care that there is no slurring as we make our utterances in English and we should also avoid being lazy in the oral use of English. Let us make clarity a matter of our habit. But, it should also be taken note of that there is no over-doing of any thing lest we should sound artificial.

We can not always think of perfection when it comes to speaking in English and there need be no embarrassment whenever a mistake is committed in our Spoken English. We must take each of our mistakes in our natural stride.

There ought to be a caution on the length of a sentence. Our Spoken Sentences should not be too long and English is not exactly an exhibition of our talent. Speech is for the purpose of communicating our ideas and it is not for the display of our scholarly attributes.
