Hello n.foster,

The Verb Machine is made with Flash, so you need a device and/or browser that can display Flash. Many devices have Flash pre-installed, but, for example, iPads do not.

I can see it without any problems right now, so I suspect this may be a problem with the hardware or software on your end. If you describe to use what you have, we'll do our best to help you access it.

Best wishes,
The LearnEnglish Team

Hello Parry.vish,

It's hard for me to give you specific advice without knowing how you speak at the moment.  However, there are some general suggestions that I can make which will help you to improve over time.  The most important thing you can do is to speak English as often as possible.  To do this a partner is very helpful, so think about the people you know and consider if any of them could be a practice partner for you.  It may be that you know someone else who is also learning English and who would like to practise with you, or perhaps you know some people who do not speak your language but do speak English.  However, if you do not have a practice partner it does not mean that you cannot practise because it is possible to practise alone.  Just speaking English to yourself while you are at home, going about your normal daily activities, can help a great deal with your fluency and can help you to feel more confident, which will help you to cut down hesitation and increase fluency.

You can also use the audio and video materials here on LearnEnglish to improve your fluency. After doing the exercises, try listening with the transcript (listening and reading). Then try saying the text yourself, and finally try saying it with (and at the same speed as) the recording. This will help you to develop speed in your speech, which is a key component of fluency.  You'll also pick up a lot of language as chunks - words which are often used together in set phrases - which you can use to communicate with less hesitation.

I hope those suggestions are helpful.

Best wishes,



The LearnEnglish Team
