The current pandemic has presented many challenges for each of us, but I know that it has been especially hard for you as an English language learner. One of the challenges that I have heard some of you express concerns the lack of opportunities to practice speaking English with others. Like me, I am sure that your teachers are doing their best to try and give you some opportunities to speak with your fellow classmates via ZOOM, but there is only so much time available during class. This means that if you want to really practice your speaking skills, you are going to need to find ways of doing this on your own more.
Conversation practice is very important. It is how you build confidence in your ability to communicate with others. However, that is only one way to improve your speaking skills. Another way is to work on pronunciation. There are many websites online where you can find pronunciation practice.
Here are a few:
