No thinking - that comes later. You must say or write your first draft with your heart. You rewrite with your head. The first key to writing is... to speak , to write, not to think!
One of the most important things to know while speaking or writing is that a blank paper can be your worst enemy. I have seen even the most brilliant speakers , writers struggle with a piece of empty white paper. Getting started is probably the most difficult thing for anyone, be it a seasoned writer or a simple person just like you and me.

We all have this inner urge to get started and finish off in one draft. We are too scared of making mistakes. Allow me to tell you a well-known secret.... No one, absolutely no one gets it all right the first time. In fact I am sure when God was formulating his 10 commandments, he probably had some drafts so he can create the right impact with those words -kidding.
The other thing you can do is to doodle on the page a little, so it is not completely blank. We all ...more

b. Be confident, avoid being anxious or nervous while speaking.
c. Read a lot, books, newspapers, magazines: all this will help you to understand language better.
d. Listen to English songs, audiobooks, radio broadcasts etc.

These tips helped me a lot when I was studying at inlingua, New Delhi. I hope these will also help you"

"Hi,

That is not at all a problem if there is no one around you to speak English with. There are still quite a few ways in which you can practice speaking and gain fluency over the language;

1. Read a lot of books, magazines, articles, blogs and novels. This would help in increasing your vocabulary as well.
2. Indulge in watching sports and listen to commentators, watch news, programmes which you like.
3. For practicing speaking I would suggest that you do that by speaking a chapter from a book or a novel by standing in front of a mirror. By practicing this habit daily for 15-20 minutes will bring about a lot of confidence in you and will improve your fluency as well.

These tips were given to me when I joined inlingua institute to pursue English language training course."
