How to Link words and Speak FLUENTLY in ENGLISH – ELAN International

It’s not important to sound like a native speaker or to have a British/American accent but if you want to be a good speaker then it is important for you to speak in an attractive way. Learning to link your words can be helpful.

Whenever we write anything then we write individual words but we don’t pronounce individual words, sometimes we link the words to sound smoother and more natural. There are few rules which you need to practice to speak fluently which are given below:

  1. Consonant to vowel linking
  • I like going out.
  • We met at the party.
  1. Vowel to vowel linking
  • Do you go out at the weekends
  • This is too easy.
  1. Consonant with the next same sound
  • There was a bomb blast
  • I was given a glass of warm milk

Whenever we learn something for the first time it seems a little difficult but when we start practising, it becomes natural and automatic. It will also help you to understand native speakers because when they speak, sometimes we are not able to understand their accent because they link the words and that might be confusing for some.

Everybody speaks English but only few people speak in a way that can attract the crowd. So to be a good speaker, you have to be fluent. Once you start using these three rules when you speak you will be able to speak fluently. You can practise at home by recording yourself while implementing these rules and listening to it again and again.

Let’s link these sentences.

Instead of copying any accent, try to speak naturally by linking the words. If you don’t have anyone to correct your mistakes then talk to yourself, think in English and link the words whenever you speak. If you start speaking and practising using this linking sound strategy from today then you will notice that in a month it will become natural and then you don’t need to think before speaking.

Keep learning and smiling!
