Plz give list of English songs , movie , speech for improving spoken English
Interactive English (5 days ago)
That's a great question. I always recommend people find things they're interested in. For example, listen to the music you enjoy. If you like watching fantasy movies, then use that to practice your English. 😊

Hi guys. I'm bilingual spanish-english, I learnedthem both when I was little, I haven't stopped practicing but I feel out of date with some vocabulary in English because I was in the states only until was 8 years old, then we moved to México. I understand English very well, I have taught it also, my pronounciation is native, even though my spelling isn't so good. What do you recomend?
Dora Pinet (1 month ago)
Thanks guys. I do read a lot in spanish and not so much in English. So i'll take that up. Thanks again.
Interactive English (1 month ago)
Thanks for commenting & sharing with us Dora. When it comes to reinforcing grammar, spelling, and even building vocabulary, I've always been a big advocate of reading. Making reading a routine part of our day will help your spelling and grammar because you'll begin to internalize the correct usage. 👍

Melly Z (2 months ago)
I feel like I cannot hear people sometimes. I am shy to say repeat for me because if I won’t understand again. They talk about something I don’t know such as laws etc... I give up understanding mostly.
Melly Z (2 months ago)
I am using subtitles most of the time . It helps me and I am learning new words. Thank you for your suggestion.
Interactive English (2 months ago)
Hi Melly. Thanks so much for your comment. I think many English learners feel the same way. Don't worry about having to ask someone to repeat. When I'm trying to listen to others in another language, I ask people to repeat all the time. Try using subtitles when watching TV or movies. It helps to listen to the words as you read them. Keep practicing & keep up the good work! 😃👍

I use to listen motivational videos that I downloaded on mp3 in my smart phone! I listen every single day, when I work, when I run, When I lunch and some times I listen sleeping. My family think that I'm crazy! But I'm not crazy, I have a dream and I will do everything I can! I am Brazilian and I'm thankful by your videos!!

I am hearing impaired and would like to see where the noise is coming from in the mouth related to the IPA. Being able to read the exact sound is important...this will help with understanding and listening. I live in Thailand which has a tonal language. My Thai really got much better after learning a bit where the sounds come from in the mouth.
Interactive English (3 months ago)
Hi Mike. Thanks for commenting. That's a great question. I think a useful resource for identifying sounds in the mouth is the University of Iowa's Phonetic Webpage. Here's a link: http://soundsofspeech.uiowa.edu/index.html#english Just scroll down to where it says "Website Version" and click on that. 👍

Christian Dufourmentel (3 months ago)
Nice, indeed! However allow I to point out something. I'm French and if you'd asked for me the same thinks in my mother language I could have made mistakes. There is a series of figures to be memorized.... It's not that easy. For example : A lady want to cook in accordance with the preselected recipe and instructions.... She is supposed to read in her language, ok? I am sure she'll have to make sure of everything to have likened. Indeed, good training. Not that easy. Thank you. Christian.
Interactive English (3 months ago)
Just a heads up, "exercise" can be used in different contexts. As a noun, it can refer to either a physical or mental activity. For example: When outside, you can do an exercise. (running) / At school, you can do an exercise. (work activity) 👍
Christian Dufourmentel (3 months ago)
Thank you ! Uh! Forgive my boldness but I am afraid you made a mistake. "This is a challenging exercice..." Well, AFAIK (As far as I know) to exercise ( UK verb). "to exercice" (US verb) and "an exercice" (noun), right? Haha! Even natives and teachers can make mistakes, don't they? I cannot help but correct mistakes of others. Why? I can't help it (I can't resist) I hope so much to be corrected by better than me. I must say that I am a former competitor, (I love challenges). and accustomed to the exams' rigor. this strange need for perfection, and to go beyond one's knowledge. In a friendly manner. Regards. Christian.
Interactive English (3 months ago)
Thanks for commenting Christian. You're right. This is a challenging exercise, even for native English speakers. Many have asked us about listening activities, so we hope to do more in the future. Possibly even turn it into a podcast at some point. Hope you have a great day! 😃

When I watch movies, I don't get most of them.
Interactive English (3 months ago)
Hi, thank you for your comment. I get what you mean. Watching movies can be a little difficult because people tend to speak faster and use more idioms. In the classroom, it's a little different- teachers speak slower, and we tend not to use as many idioms. I would recommend maybe using subtitles in English when you watch something.That could help you "catch" more information, and detect what it is that you're not hearing. I will say this though: the more you do something, the easier it will become. So keep watching them and your listening will improve!
Kanwaldip Kaur (3 months ago)
Hi interactive English, I can read and understand I can write too,though not very good.My problem is ,I can not understand what is spoken on TV,in movies and in lectures.My ears listen n listen but I cannot follow what is said.
Kanwaldip Kaur (3 months ago)
Interactive English thank you
Interactive English (3 months ago)
Thanks for commenting & sharing with us. I think many learners feel the same about TV/movies. I'd recommend using subtitles from time to time, so that you improve your comprehension while identifying the words/phrases with the quick speech. Keep practicing & keep up the good work! 😃👍

Hello, sir, can we say " I hold my urine or my hunger"?. Thank's
Interactive English (3 months ago)
Thanks for commenting! That's a good question. Instead of saying "I hold my urine," you would just say "I'm holding it." People understand that "it" means "urine." As for hunger, we don't really use it that way. People can "stave off hunger," but I think it's more common just to say "I'm not eating right now." Hope this helps! 😊

It depens on the pace of speaking I think. But yes it's kinda hardest part to improve our language skills.

My listening skills talking to english speakers (native or not) are good, I guess, I can have hours of conversation, but I can't handle the pronunciation when I watch movies, I need subtitles because it sounds like people: speak too fast, whisper all the time or/and are too lazy to talk XD
