Speaking is the next skill which should be mastered following the reading and listening skills. English is a universal language of international communication, so in order to speak with a representative of almost any nation or general business issues, speaking skills and interactive communication should be developed at a sufficient level.

To learn to speak English, it is just enough to immerse in the environment. Vocabulary of the native language is vast mainly due to being in an environment where everyone speaks the same language. To speak English, you do not need to specifically go to an English-speaking country. There are cases where this method is completely ineffective. This is due to the fact that people often do not focus on the goal of “conversation”, and meeting abroad their compatriots, opt for a comfortable communication in their native language, thus eliminating the time of immersion, for the sake of which they came to another country.
Make friends with native speakers;
Attend the regular English language courses;
To get a job in a foreign company;
Attend conversation clubs.
All these methods have undeniable advantages as well as disadvantages. For example, with native speakers you can gain experience of life communication, but cannot expect regular “lessons” and learning academic vocabulary. The regular English language courses are always helpful, but not always possible for people with a busy schedule or busy social life. Moreover, when attending courses you will learn English, and attention will be paid to all, without exception, skills, which can be not pass to those ,whose English is already perfect and only conversational skills lack.
Employment in foreign companies can be a great option, but, firstly, this kind of work still needs to be found, and secondly, no one can know what skills will eventually be used most of all: it is likely that it may require more written communication within the corporation. Visiting speaking clubs in this regard would probably be the most optimal variant.
— Classes are held on a regular basis (every week) at certain times/on certain days specified in advance, but not as often as English courses (three times a week). Visiting Speaking Club reduces to discipline, but is not tiresome!
— Minimum time for preparation makes such speaking clubs especially attractive; the topic is prepared by the teacher, so the process will be a pleasant surprise. No homework!
— Meeting new people creates the right atmosphere for a dialogue — freedom and unpredictability. They offer new opinions and new friends who are united by one purpose, which is to practice spoken English.
