The silent period is a period of months when children only listen to English and do not force speaking. This is a powerful secret of learning to speak English well.
Is reading and listening to English at the same time a good learning technique? Will it help you speak English better?
Do you need to practice English with a native speaker? What if there are no native speakers in your town? How can you improve your English speaking if you can't practice with a native speaker?
Fear is the killer of English presentations. To speak well, to give a great presentation in English, you must overcome your fear. It is fear, not English, that is the big problem. Know the enemy and learn how to defeat it.

What is the plural of "you" in English? In American English there are two common forms for you (more than one person). Which is used depends on which part of the country you are from.
The form "You guys" is the most common one across the USA, but it is also catching on in other countries, such as the UK, especially among young people, so it might well be the international standard for the future.
