I doubt that that's ever possible unless you lived in an English speaking country for many years and have observed how they express their thoughts in words. The tendency for people who are using English as a secondary language is to traslate literally and use the thought patterns of their native tongue. It doesn't mean it affects the clarity of what we are saying, it's just not the way a native speaker will express his thoughts.

Well I'm amercian and I've only spoken english my whole life so I don't know how much I could give you. But I would recommend annuciating each word and speaking slower. This might help. Good luck.

i think you should allow your mother tongue to influence your talking of English. English is a living dynamic language, forwever changing and developing, it can only be made ricfher by the additionj of words from other languages
