Why Learn SPOKEN ENGLISH at CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE ?
With technology making the world a smaller place, English has emerged as the official language of the planet and modern day economy. Recognised as the major global language, English allows people to communicate, collaborate, create and transcend beyond boundaries. Whether it is an interview or a business meeting, fluency in English is the ticket towards achieving one’s dreams.

From a professional trying to make a point to the housewife looking to make an impression; from a store assistant trying to sell more to a customer to a young student talking to his peers, English is increasingly being seen as a passport to getting places. In fact, more than 70 per cent of engineering students and 80 per cent of all graduates are termed ‘untrainable’ for employment simply due to a lack of essential English communication and allied soft skills.

   

Current context
» 85 per cent of international organisations use English as the working language.
» It is estimated that by 2015, half the world’s population will be either speaking or learning English.
» Only ten per cent of the Indian population speaks English.
» 75 per cent of Indians believe that English will enhance their personal development and improve career prospects as most organisations require employees to speak English.

How We help You Improve Your English at CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE, Ahmedabad.

The importance of the English language cannot be overemphasized. Comfort with English is almost a prerequisite for success in the world today. Regardless of the industry, proficiency in English is an important factor in both hiring and promotion decisions.

A lot of us have studied English in school and are fairly comfortable with reading and writing. However, we hesitate while speaking because we feel that we lack the fluency and may make grammatical mistakes. We are afraid of speaking English in formal situations and we are quick to switch to our native language once we are in the company of our family and friends.

There is no quick fix when it comes to improving your command over a particular language. It always requires a lot of time and effort.

Here are CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE’s top ten tips for success in achieving proficiency and fluency in English:

We at CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE strive to improve your Spoken English Skills.

1. Do not hesitate. Talk to whoever you can. Decide among your circle of friends that you will only talk in English with each other. This way you can get rid of hesitation and also have your friends correct you when you are wrong.

    

2. Start a conversation with strangers in English. Since you do not know them personally, you will feel less conscious about what they would feel about you.

3. Maintaining a diary to record the events of your day is a great way to practice your writing skills. Take your time to use new words and phrases when you write in your diary.

    

4. Read the newspaper. Read it aloud when you can. Concentrate on each word. Note down the words you don’t understand and learn their meanings. Try to use these words in your own sentences.

5. Watch English movies and English shows on television. Initially, you can read the sub-titles to follow the conversation. As you practice more, you will realize that you are able to follow the conversation without needing to read the sub-titles.

6. Set aside an hour every day to watch English news channels. This is one of the most effective ways of improving your comprehension.

7. Podcasts are available on the internet. These are audio and video files and many of these can be downloaded for free. These are a great way to practice listening skills and develop an understanding of different accents.

8. It is usually quite difficult for a beginner to understand the words of an English song as there is background music and the accent of the artist may be unfamiliar to the listener. Read the lyrics while you listen to the song and you will comprehend better. Once you start following the voice of a particular singer, you will find it much easier to understand the singer’s other songs too.

9. Another effective way is to record your own voice and listen to it. You will notice hesitations and pauses. You may also notice that you make some grammatical mistakes while speaking that you do not make while writing. You must aim to improve and rectify these mistakes in subsequent recordings.

10. Ask people who speak better for advice. There is no shame in seeking help especially if you are trying to improve yourself. Talk to them in English and ask them to correct you whenever you are wrong.

    

CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE makes tough Grammar easy for you . We strongly believe improving your grammar from Basic to Highly Advance level is must and it is taught in the easiest way in the world by Mr. Devang D Solanki, Author of Enrich Your English Series. Be Careful We don’t teach you textual, theoretical and boring grammar. Our Grammar Teaching is highly innovative, practical and conversational. TENSES WILL NEVER TENSE YOU with our coaching.

Grammar is the set of rules that govern the usage of English language. A strong grasp of English grammar is therefore of the greatest importance.

Most non-native English speakers make grammatical mistakes while speaking in English. Improving grammar takes time and effort but it is well worth it. Here are some tips which will help you improve English grammar

Understand the building blocks of grammar As a first step, it is important to know the different building blocks of grammar like nouns, pronouns, articles, adjectives, verbs, adverbs, prepositions, conjunctions and interjections. The internet is full of resources about these and it is usually a good idea to understand them well.

Pay attention to sentence structures When you read an article or watch a movie, it is important to pay attention to how sentences are constructed. This practice helps ingrain different sentence structures and will help your spoken and written English.

Practice when you can
     
This tip can never be overemphasized. As an English learner, it is extremely important for you to talk in English at any given opportunity. If you do not have partners to practise with, then try to speak in front of the mirror.

CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE Grammar exercises will help you form sentences quickly.
CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE will be your mentor, Our Faculty will be with you and mentor you with ideas to learn , Not just Class Room
     
Come and Go type learning. Many learners have improved their grammar working with a mentor. A mentor could even be a friend who has a strong command over English grammar. You must speak only in English with your mentor and ask the mentor to point out your mistakes. This real time feedback is very beneficial in improving grammar.

Join the course now at CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE Many students find that an English improvement course at CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE is the quickest way to improve English grammar.

Learn and Improve English Vocabulary with fun at CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE with the books of the director Mr Devang D Solanki, the Author of Enrich Your Series. After Finishing the Vocabulary Development Course at CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE you will be confident in reading English Newspapers and will never have to see the dictionary. There are more than 250,000 words in the Oxford English dictionary. This number does not include slang or technical words. However, a good English speaker would normally use only 15,000 to 20,000 of these words. If you think your vocabulary is weak, a little effort everyday over a six to nine month period can go a long way in improving it.

Here are CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE’s top ten vocabulary improvement tips -
1. Make reading the newspaper a daily ritual. You may be comfortable reading a particular section but make an effort to read different articles on every page. The editorial page is highly recommended not only for vocabulary but also for structuring and presenting thought.

2. It is not surprising that those who read a lot develop a good vocabulary. Make it a habit to read a new book every week. You can consider becoming a member of the local library. Make a list of words that are new to you and look up their meanings in the dictionary.

3. Watching English movies and television shows is important for improving English and learning new English words. The best part about watching English videos is that you can learn the correct pronunciation as well.

4. Vocabulary cards are used by students who are trying to learn many words in a short period of time. You can make your own cards by writing the word on one side and the meaning on the other side of a square piece of paper. In your free time, it is a convenient tool to learn new words.

5. The internet is an unlimited resource for reading material. Pick up a topic of your choice and search for articles about it. You will come across plenty of material to read which you might find interesting, and importantly, will also introduce you to new words. Be sure to look them up in a dictionary.

6. The best way to ensure that you never forget the new words you learn is to start using them in your day to day conversation. Do not try to force them into a conversation but do use them if you think they are appropriate.

7. Most dictionaries provide us with pronunciations of words using phonetic symbols. It is important to learn the sounds that correspond to these phonetic symbols, in order to become comfortable pronouncing new words.

8. Learning in groups is always more fun. If you have friends who also want to improve their vocabulary, then you can form a group and share new words with each other. You can meet at regular interval and measure your progress.

9. Root words are words from which words grow with the addition of prefixes and suffixes. For eg. Even the word vocabulary is derived from the Latin root word voc which means 'word' or 'name'. Other words like advocacy, vocal and vociferous are also derived from the same root word. Hence, if you can recognize some root words, you will get a fair idea of many derived words. A list of common root words is available here.

10. While it is important to read and learn new words, it is equally important to revise what you have learnt. Fix a particular day of the week to revise all the words you have learnt in that week and add them to your daily vocabulary.

We teach you Punctuation Marks in our Spoken English at CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE for your better writing skills Punctuation marks are important for both written and spoken English. In written English, the correct usage of these symbols help express the intended meaning of the sentence. In spoken English, punctuation marks denote the pauses and intonations to be used when reading aloud.

Incorrect punctuation can change the meaning of a sentence. The sentences, ‘Women, without her man, is nothing’ and ‘Woman: without her, man is nothing’ is an often used example of how the incorrect use of punctuation marks can alter the meaning a sentence.

Symbols of Punctuation
Some of the commonly used punctuation marks are
Full Stop - (.) Usually used at the end of a sentence.
Question Mark - (?) Usually used at the end of an interrogative sentence to form a question.
Comma - (,) - Usually used to denote a pause in a sentence.
Exclamation Mark - (!) - Used to denote shock, surprise, anger or a raised voice.

Colon and Semi Colon Apostrophe - (') - Used to show possession or for contraction of word. We give power to your English Pronunciation, You speak natural and fluent English with Crystal Clear Voice after doing our pronunciation workshop at CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE. Pronunciation can be a tricky matter when it comes to the English language. Unlike with languages like Hindi and Gujarati, letters in English take on multiple phonetic forms (think of the a in can and the a in war); thus, the concept of pronouncing a word the way it is spelled does not apply. This is partly the result of derivation; English is a derivative language in that many of its words and phrases have been borrowed from other languages (cafe, boutique, cocoa).

The unpredictability that results makes pronunciation in English difficult to master, and a written course is possibly the least helpful way to go about it. It is through continued contact with English speakers and practice that one’s pronunciation improves. Watching English-language films, TV shows, and news channels is also very useful. Both methods, however, require conscious effort. One must pay close attention while conversing with someone who is fluent, and while watching English-language film or TV productions, and, through practice, make correct-sounding speech a matter of habit.

WE help you improve your English Writing in our Spoken English Course, Here are a few Tips from our Course of FLUENT ENGLSIH.

Here are some tips to help you with English composition:
1. In the words of George Orwell, ‘Never use a long word when a short one will do.’
2. Keep your sentences short and well-punctuated, not long and convoluted.
3. Omit unnecessary words. There are a number of phrases in the English language that can be replaced with simple words to convey the same meaning; this should be done whenever possible. For example, the clause This is a matter which... can just as easily be written as This matter.
4. Try to stick to the active voice, rather than the passive.
5. The above points can be condensed into one golden rule of writing: keep it simple. Good writing is not about complexity; it is about conveying your message to the reader. Which leads us to the next rule:
6. Keep the readership in mind while writing.
7. Avoid being overly formal. It is impersonal.
8. Avoid multiple negatives. They often invert the intended meaning, and are difficult to untangle.
9. Make the verb agree with the subject, not with a word in between the two. For example, The bus, with all its passengers, were about to overturn is wrong, because here the subject is the singular ‘cart’, not the plural ‘passengers’. Hence, it should be The bus, with all its passengers, was about to overturn.
10. Use commas to bracket those parts of the sentence that would otherwise obstruct its flow, but do not use commas to join independent clauses. The proper punctuation mark to use in this case is the semicolon.

We at CAMBRIDGE INSTITUTE provide you real life tips to improve your SPOKEN ENGLISH throughout the course, Here are a few tips from our course to Improve Spoken English- Let’s Learn How to improve Spoken English ?

  

The English language is spoken in many nations including India. Speaking the language fluently allows one to feel confident while communicating or interacting with different people. Not being fluent in English often leads to embarrassing situations for us; we feel unsure of ourselves and that only makes things worse. Here is what helped me overcome these situations and become confident in English:

1. Ever wondered why you are so fluent with your mother tongue? It is because you speak and hear the language more often. What does this suggest? The first and the most crucial step to improve spoken English is to speak it as often as you can. Speak in English with friends, family, relatives etc. Do not worry about making mistakes. In fact, encourage people around you to correct you as often as they can. This will help you speak correct English and boost your confidence.
2. Feeling under confident forces us to speak rapidly because we stumble with words or feel unsure about the pronunciation. Do not let this happen, it shows anxiety and the other person will struggle to understand what you are saying. Speak at a comfortable pace and pronounce your words correctly. There’s is no reason to feel shy or intimidated. We all make mistakes and the only way to learn is to practice and have others correct us.
3. Use a dictionary to learn new words or to find out the meaning of a word you may have heard. Make a list and use these words as often as you can.
4. Read books, newspapers and magazines. This will allow you to understand the language better and help you learn new words to widen your vocabulary.
5. Watch English movies preferably with subtitles. This too will aid you in understanding the language better.
6. Read one article out loud every day and if possible and ask someone to listen and correct you. Focus on speed, clarity and correct pronunciation.
7. Record your own voice and listen to it. This will help you gain confidence and work on your mistakes.
8. Try and find a partner who is also interested in improving his/her spoken English. Practice together, correct each other and learn together.
9. Think in English instead of translating sentences from other languages that you’re familiar with. Doing this leads to grammatical mistakes and deteriorates the quality of your spoken English.

We teach you Good Communication Skills in our SPOKEN ENGLISH COURSE. -
Our Director Mr Devang D Solanki strongly believe that Good Communication Skills are the Key to Any Success


Good communication skills are key to success in life, work and relationships. Without effective communication, a message can turn into error, misunderstanding, frustration, or even disaster by being misinterpreted or poorly delivered.

Communication is the process by which we exchange information between individuals or groups of people. It is a process where we try as clearly and accurately as we can, to convey our thoughts, intentions and objectives.

Communication is successful only when both the sender and the receiver understand the same information. In today's highly informational and technological environment it has become increasingly important to have good communication skills. While many individuals still continue to struggle, the inability to communicate effectively will hold them back not only in their careers, but in social and personal relationships.

Here are some of the notes from our SPOKEN ENGLISH COURSE for acquiring good communication skills:
1. Know what you want to say and why.
Understand clearly the purpose and intent of your message. Know to whom you are communicating and why. Consider any barriers you may encounter such as cultural differences or situational circumstances (gender, age, or economic biases). Ask yourself what outcome you want to achieve and the impression you want to leave.

2. How will you say it?
We're all aware by now, that it's not always what you say, but how you say it that counts. Begin by making eye contact. You inspire trust and confidence when you look a person in the eyes when you speak. Second, be aware of your body language since it can say as much, or more, than your words. By standing with arms easily at your side you tell others that you are approachable and open to hearing what they have to say. If instead, your arms are crossed and shoulders hunched, it suggests disinterest or unwillingness to communicate. Good posture and an approachable stance help make even difficult communication flow more smoothly. Make sure you speak in a cooperative, non-adversarial tone. Be nonjudgmental.

3. Listen.
Communication is a two way street. After you've said what you have to say, stop, listen, and look for feedback and clues of comprehension. While the person is responding avoid any impulses to cut them off or listen only for the end of the sentence so that you can blurt out more ideas or thoughts that come to your mind. Respectfully give them your full attention. When they are finished, to ensure that your message has been clearly and correctly understood, ask open questions and encourage discussion. Fine-tune your message if necessary.

4. Reach understanding, agreement or consensus.
Once you have had to opportunity to discuss your message and the feedback to it, re-visit the purpose of the interchange. Have you reached common ground, solved a problem, or clarified your position? If the purpose was to teach or instruct, have you accomplished your goal? To communicate well is to understand and be understood. Make sure that your message has been received as intended and that any questions or concerns have been alleviated. You can even agree to disagree. There are no guarantees that your communication efforts will be meet with total compliance and agreement. As long as you understand each other, are cordial and respectful, you can still have a successful exchange.

skills as well as allowing you the opportunity to meet new and interesting people in our class room coaching..


In Our Course of SPOKEN ENGLISH, We teach you to become an excellent orator. We train you to improve your public speaking skills in our course. Here are some of the brief outline from our SPOKEN ENGLISH course.

Mr Devang Solanki’s tips for you: If the thought of speaking in front of a group makes your blood run cold, here’s good news: You can employ a variety of simple tricks to take the edge off your nerves so that your delivery will be smooth and self-assured. Mr Devang Solanki, the director of the institute and author of Enrich Your English Series shares these tried-and-true techniques.

In the business world, speaking effectively is a must. Whether you are going on an interview, asking your boss for a raise (or a bigger budget), selling your product to bidders/purchasers, speaking with clients, giving a presentation, or rallying the troops for a long-haul network upgrade, you are going to need to be at your best with public speaking. Problem is, most schools don’t really give you much in the way of training for public speaking. That’s where I come in. Here are 10 simple ways to make that nightmare more a dream.

1: Cambridge Institute helps you Prepare
You have to know your material. And I’m not just talking about memorizing words and facts. I mean really KNOW your material. You can’t predict what is going to happen that might cause you to get sidetracked. Murphy’s Law dictates that something will happen. And when it does, it’s best to know where you are. That’s when a little acting trick will come in handy.

When you have a large script to memorize, the best way to do it is in chunks. But not just any chunk. It’s best to make a chunk all related material. For example: You’re giving a presentation on why your company should migrate to open source software. You could have five different chunks to your speech: Intro to open source, Cost savings, Security, Reliability, Ease of use. With each of those chunks, you’ll have certain bits of information to know. But always know the names of those chunks. So when/if you get lost, you at least know which chunk you are on. If you know the information within that chunk well enough, you can get back on track. This has helped me a number of times on stage. If I know the gist of a scene and I get lost, at least I know what the scene is about, so eventually I can right that ship. If I have no idea what the scene is about, I’ll never get that scene righted. Same thing with a speech. If you memorize just a big blurb of stuff and you don’t break it down, you’ll be lost in a sea of information if you lose your bearings. If you get lost within a chunk, that sea becomes a lake and you can find your way back to shore fairly easily. Know your material!

2: Cambridge Institute teaches you Rehearse correctly
Most people don’t realize this, but nerves have a serious effect on how you speak in front of people. Nearly everyone who gets nervous when speaking in front of people will speak faster than they normally would. This can lead to you not being understood and most certainly seeming nervous. (Pitting out that button-down? Shame!). To avoid this pitfall, rehearse your speech more slowly than you would normally. That doesn’t mean speeeeeeaaaak verrrrrrrry slooooooowly. That means just be more at ease and relaxed when you rehearse. That way, when the nerves kick in, you will most likely be speaking at a normal pace.

3: We advise you to Hydrate yourself
Most would think this a crazy thing to do before speaking. But you know why so many speakers keep water with them when they speak? Nerves dry up your mouth. And when your mouth dries up, you will have a harder time articulating your thoughts. To that end, make sure you drink plenty of water before and during your speech. Now this doesn’t mean down it like you’ve not had water to your lips in days. If you do that, you’ll most certainly need to pause in the middle of your speech to visit the bathroom. Either that or you’ll REALLY embarrass yourself.

4: Relax before you go on: This is Mr Devang Solanki’s important tip.
This is another one of those tactics that most people don’t think will work. It does. I quickly discovered that if I relax before I go on to the stage, my nerves just ease away. But how does one relax? By not obsessing over what you are about to do. If you go over and over your speech before you go on, you will be in a constant state of reminding yourself that you are about to make yourself nervous. Instead, do something to get your mind off what you are about to do. Two activities did the trick for me: Reading a book or playing a video game. It’s pretty easy these days to pack a PSP, DS, Kindle, or paperback with you. Do this and take advantage of the time before you go on. Your heart rate will thank you for it.

5: Rest well is the Key.
The night before you are going on the biggest interview of your life, don’t go out and paint the town the color of the hangover you’ll have the next morning. Instead, relax, go to the gym, catch a movie, read, or anything that is going to help you get a good night’s sleep. And that doesn’t mean medicate yourself to get those 40 winks. If you do, you’ll wake up feeling worse than if you hadn’t slept.

6: It’s Necessary to Dress to impress
During my 15 years as a trainer, I probably had just a handful of outfits I would wear during auditions. There are two reasons for this: Superstition and looks. When an outfit seemed to help me get a gig, I would use it more than not. But how does this really help? You choose a speaking, interviewing, rallying outfit that makes you look good (both to yourself and others) — and when you feel like you look good, your confidence will soar. So don’t just settle on your usual khakis and oxford. Bring in the help of that significant other to help you find just the right look that makes you KNOW you look good. The confidence you gain by this will greatly improve your speaking.

7: Articulate
Have you ever listened to someone speak who was hard to understand? What do you do after a while? You tune them out. You find them uninteresting and assume they’re not really knowledgeable about their subject. You can be the most brilliant person alive, but if your audience can’t understand you, you will lose them. Speakers who articulate are thought of much more highly than those who don’t.

8: Be heard
This goes hand in hand with number 7. If you can’t be heard, you won’t be heard. If you have a softer voice, you know you’re going to have trouble. And most people tend to speak more softly when they’re speaking in front of a crowd. (Again, nerves can do many things.) Here’s a way to help you out with this. When you rehearse your speech, do it in front of someone but have them stand in the back of the room. Make sure they let you know if you can’t be heard.

9: Warm up
Your voice is like any other muscle in your body: You use it cold and it won’t work well. If you roll out of bed, get dressed, drink your coffee, and go give your speech, you’re going to have issues. Instead, make sure your vocal muscles are ready to work. When you give speeches, you are speaking for much longer periods at a time than you normally do. If you don’t prepare yourself you can wind up with a sore throat (or sounding like you just smoked a carton). Two of the best ways to warm your voice up are by humming (single low- to midrange tones are best or simple melodies or scales) and by doing tongue twisters. If you need a good tongue twister to really get yourself ready try “The big black bug bled blue-black blood.” Repeat that for a while and you’ll be ready to knock ‘em over!

10: Don’t fill the void
How many times have you heard a speaker or interviewed someone for a job only to turn them off because they filled the space between thoughts with sounds or words? You know what I’m… ummmm… talking… ummmm… about. Right? This sounds horribly unprofessional. Instead of filling your voids with grunts, groans, and signs of weakness, fill them with thought-filled, connected silence. Believe it or not, those pauses aren’t as long as you think. And when your audience (be it a single person or a crowd) sees that you are still connected to them, even between thoughts, you will keep their rapt attention. In other words, don’t drift off with ummmm… errrr… uhhhh… eeeee…sounds or words between your thoughts. Hold your listeners’ attention with silence as you continue to press forward.
