Hi TopazXylophoneTonight,

If you want to practise speaking, just keep talking in English all the time. It doesn't matter who you speak to - it could be to yourself, to a friend or someone in your family, or even to a teddy bear like the one in this song ;-)

Also, keep listening to English as much as possible (for example the stories and videos on our website). Listening helps you learn vocabulary and improve your pronunciation.

On our LearnEnglish Teens site, there are some videos which are specially to practise speaking skills. 


I hope that helps, and good luck with your exam!


Best wishes,


LearnEnglish Kids team

Oh thank you! I think that'll help me a lot! And I think I'll somehow survive that exam :-)

I have a very special teddy bear that was also my dad's favorite when he was a kid. Its been in my family since before he was born. His name is Timmy and is brown and a little wrecked but I still love him and am always very careful with him.
