Hello Umar Khan,

Speaking can be difficult at first but with practice you can improve.  Firstly, think about how you might practise.  For example, perhaps you have a friend or colleague who is also learning English who can be your practice partner.  Even if this is not possible, you can practise by yourself, as I do when I am learning a foreign language.  Speak to yourself at home in English, describing what you are doing and thinking.  It's surprising what a difference this can make to your confidence and fluency.

Secondly, listen to as many models of good English as possible.  The Listen & Watch section of LearnEnglish has a great number of recordings to choose from, all with tasks to help you to focus on the most important aspects and with transcripts so you can read as well as listen, and then practise saying the text along with the recording, helping you to develop fluency and speed.

I hope these suggestions are helpful.  Good luck!
