Structuring content before starting English conversation
Greetings to all the companions of Farsad English Institute. Today we are going to learn how to do content structuring before starting your English conversation. You may have come across people who have a lot of vocabulary, but can’t pronounce their sentences correctly.
What do you think is the reason for this?
These people memorize words easily because they have a good memory, but they have not practiced the practical use of words.
In this article, we want to explain the ways how we can use the treasure of mental words to increase the power of English speaking.
Remember that in order to be able to implement your vocabulary treasure in the form of a phrase, you need to be familiar with the sentence structure.
Techniques for Structuring content before starting English conversation
A: Reading English grammar
The first and most common way you might be offered is to read and practice English grammar rules.
To know in what style any sentence should be expressed? In which part of the sentence do the verb and the subject come? What words should be used in conditional sentences? Where is the position of place and time adverbs in a sentence? And ….
This method is necessary for conversation helping you be understood, but it is not enough. The same is true not only in English but also in Persian.
B: Listening, reading and seeing phrases
How did we learn our mother tongue? Hearing, reading and seeing phrases is one of the best ways to get acquainted with the structural style.
The more we practice these three, the sooner we can familiarize our minds with the style of English sentences.
You may have noticed that children who are often talked to by their parents express their intentions more quickly and easily in the form of sentences.
People who are new to English learning are similar to children, and the more they practice speaking in these three ways, the more successful they will be.
We suggest: In learning any language, first read and listen to the target language as much as you can.
In this case, your brain is working behind the scenes and recognizing patterns.
C: Test yourself by making short sentences
In order to be able to have a good English speaking, you need to have the power to express your intentions in short, precise sentences.
So try to test yourself; allow yourself to say short sentences. Simple sentences reveals your strengths and weaknesses after a while, and you can be given feedback and have the chance to improve your English proficiency.
Try to make different sentences for the topics you deal with, write them down, and extend the same structure to other topics.
In this case, you will have a set of sentences and you can easily find your weaknesses and strengths by applying them to the grammar rules.
D: Equivalent sentences and grammar matching
Note that grammatical structures are different in each language.
I think knowing these differences will help you remember the structure of each language in different situations.
For example, a simple affirmative sentence in Persian will include:
subject + object + object + adverb + verb, respectively.
In English it will include:
subject + verb + object + adverb, respectively.
The difference in structure is obvious. You should consider a simple sentence in Persian and then create it according to the difference in the English equivalent structure.
This is a simple but very effective exercise in learning English grammatical structure, because you know the structures of mother tongue and when you want to start speaking English, you will express the sentences based on the queen of the mind.
With this practice, the English language structures will become the queen of your mind after a while, so not only will speaking become more interesting, but it also help you speak more confidently .
You no longer have to say English words in maternal language structure, but you will use the words in the correct English structure from the beginning.
