English speaking practice with a native speaker has a number of benefits. First of all, a native English teacher can correct any mistakes you make, speed up your learning and guide you towards using more natural-sounding words and expressions. Also, if you want to be able to have lively discussions on a wide range of topics, you’ll need to be able to keep up with the pace of such conversations. Practising your English Speaking and Listening skills with a native English teacher will give you the opportunity to keep up with fast speech, and learn strategies to help you express your opinion and really join in.
Some people are worried that if they are Beginners, they won’t be able to understand what a native teacher says or to follow the teacher’s instructions. You shouldn’t worry – a qualified and experienced English teacher would have taught hundreds of students at a Beginner or Elementary level, and knows how to help you build your confidence. You will gradually start to understand more and more as your teacher will set a pace that suits you, and introduce new vocabulary and set homework exercises – not just by practising grammar but through Writing practice as well. Writing is a great way for a teacher to establish any gaps in your grammar knowledge and then address them in your classes. Also, it pushes the student to use and experiment with new vocabulary and structures which expands learning, as well as builds confidence and active range of language.
What about higher levels – Intermediate or Advanced? For these, regular English speaking practice with a native speaker is absolutely essential:
If you want to work on sounding more like a native, then a native teacher is, of course, by far the best option. Any native speaker can hear those sounds you make that just aren’t quite right but it’s only a qualified teacher who can give you the learning strategies and confidence to be able produce that elusive English accent and tone.
As your level improves and you are more comfortable with the basics, the time will come for you to top up your game. If you want to start showing your personality through the way you express yourself, a native English teacher can make sure you start becoming aware of nuance of meaning.
Also, as you know, even at higher levels, those grammar mistakes can still creep in. A native English teacher won’t let you get away with this and allow your mistakes to become habit. They’ll push you to break those bad habits and aim for a higher level of accuracy.
We live in a fast-paced world where new expressions are being born everyday (often on social media). Words that were popular yesterday are out of fashion today! Meanings can shift and change very quickly and a native teacher is always alert to this. They will make sure you sound up to date and not stuck in the 1950s!
