1- Watching and listening to everything in English

watching everything in English is one of the most helpful things you can do in order to learn faster and develop your accent. So you should watch every program, TV-series, movie or YouTube video in English. Learning new words daily is also very helpful.

2- Speaking everything out loud

The more you practice your English, the better. But If you don’t have anybody to practice with, you can talk to yourself . One of the things that can help you to practice your English is reading English books out loud so you can practice your pronunciation. If you like a specific movie quote, make sure you repeat it in the same way as the actor did in the movie. Also you can repeat the lyrics of your favorite songs again and again out loud.

3-Feeling The Rhythm While You Learn English

Practicing pronunciation is an important step of accent reduction, but it is not the only component. Rhythm is an underrated, although it is the key of sounding like a native English speaker. Watch movies and imitate how the actors are speaking. Pay special attention to which words they stress in a sentence. Typically, you should stress the most important parts of a sentence, but not every word.

4- Focus on the accent you want to speak.

There are many accents to choose from: posh British, cool American, laid back Australian and so on. So choose the accent that you the most, If you decide to have an American accent, try to avoid saying things like “mate” or “trousers”, the British version of “dude” and “pants”.

5- Practicing English in real life.

Basically, the best way to speak better is to, well – speak! Commit to practicing often and with as many different people as possible. Take advantage of the thousands of native speakers in your immediate community, such as your friends, their families, your coworkers, classmates, employees at the coffee shops, supermarket, post-office and other places you visit. If you’re learning in your own country, increase your practice time by meeting your classmates after class, finding an language exchange partner or joining an online community of learners.
