Does anyone have any tips on improving speaking skills in Esperanto? I know it is not easy to speak this language everyday but was curious if anyone had any ideas.

Dankon!

You could listen to Esperanto music/radio, watch Esperanto movies, etc....just to immerse yourself into the language. Reading Esperanto is effective and that will make you literate, but if you really want to speak it then you must both listen and watch Esperanto being spoken:)

Good luck! :D

You can use this site to learn and chat in Esperanto with other people. Look for "Tujmesagxilo" on the right side. http://pt.lernu.net/

Saluton!

You could talk to yourself in the shower. That's how all the rest of the other Esperantists go mad! (I'm only joking about the going mad part) And like blackninja999x said, there is plenty of Esperanto media out there.

Good luck with your Esperanto studies! (I wish I still had the motivation for Esperanto :(...)

Head over to Discord a free chatting room (both spoken and written) which requires no registration. There's a lot of Esperanto speakers there and usually a couple of voice chats a day :)

The only way to get better at speaking the language is by speaking it!

The very best way, laĆ­ me, is to talk to other people. Local meetups are a great venue, although of course they probably don't meet every day. Sites like italki and HelloTalk can also link you up with other speakers over the internet. Practicing on your own (in the shower or while driving) can also be helpful.

But what I really wanted to point out is this: Evildea says in this video that he uses Mnemosyne (a flashcard program) to memorize a bunch of sentences using his vocabulary in different contexts, which helped him overcome that "pause every few words to think" problem.

(Interestingly, in this video he talks about recording himself speaking sentences, and playing them back in order to train his listening skills on his own as an early speaker.)
