Read about Richard Taylor, a 26-year-old musician from Vancouver, Canada.

I usually work in Canada, but sometimes I work abroad, too. When I’m not working, I like going to the movies and eating in nice restaurants. I don’t like sports very much, and I don’t exercise. But at least I don’t smoke.
I think I’m open and friendly. I get along well with most people, but I can be kind of shy, too. For example, I don’t like going to parties. I prefer to meet friends individually or in small groups.
I like intelligent, funny women who make me laugh, and ideally who love music. Physically, I prefer women with dark hair who are not taller than me. And I like women who are good listeners.
I’m sure that my friend Danny knows me better than my family because we often talk about girlfriends and problems we have. I don’t usually talk to my family about that kind of thing. My Mom always says that I look for the wrong kind of woman, but that’s what mothers always say!

Making your sentence become speaking
Compare these answers:
A:  Do you like coffee?
B1: Yes, I like coffee  B2: Coffee? Well, I like it.

                            Confirming word       Interjection
A:  What would you like to drink?
B1: I’d like to drink coffee. B2: Well, coffee, I think.

                                                      Interjection      Confirming phrase
 With Yes/No questions, sometimes we don’t need to say “Yes” or “No”.
Steadily, we can use some another way to express your ideas to make it
become real speaking. One of those ways is to use Interjections and
Confirming words.

My name’s Mauricio Nesta. I come  from Brasilia, the capital of Brazil. I’m a student  at the University of Brasilia. I’m studying modern languages,  English  and French. I also know a little Spanish, so I can speak four languages. I’m enjoying the  program     a lot, but it’s  realy   hard work. I started college three years ago.
 I live at home with my  parents  and my sister. My  brother  went to work in the United States last year.
 After I graduate, I’m going to  work  as a translator. I hope so, anyway.

 

Practice speaking this text:
  The oldest children get maximum attention from their parents and the result izat they’re usually predy self-confident people. They make good leaders. Did?? know that 52% of the US Presidents were firstborn children? Firstborn children are often ambitious and they’re more likely to goda college than their brothers or sisters. They often get the top jobs, too. Oldest children are often responsible people because they often’ve t? take care of their younger brothers or sisters. The downside of this izat sometimes this means that when they’re older they worry a lodabout things. They k’n also be a little bossy, or even aggressive, especially when they don’t get what they want.

This is one of many good ways to improve your accent to make it sound more like a native speaker.
 What you need is a CD or video of native speakers, and of course, its tape script.
 Listen to the sentences and take notes on the tape script the special things you hear. Then, repeat the sentences. Try to imitate what the native speaker say. Finally, you can record your voice and compare it with the native speaker’s voice.
 For example:
 You write:  A lot of people ask me if it’s possible to sound like a native speaker.
 You note: A lot of people ask me /  if it’s possible to sound like a 
         /d/               /?/    /t?/
   native speaker.
                  /d/
