How do you become an effective English speaker?
This is a question I have been asked more than once, for sure.
And I understand why.
When I had reached an intermediate level of Portuguese, I remember thinking that I needed to become much more “precise” with my speaking. It felt like I was saying the same things over and over, and it would take me too long to develop what I wanted to say.
Eventually I got past this phase, and became the confident speaker I knew I could become.
What did I do to become more effective? The answer might not be what you think, and it is easier than you might expect.
In this episode, discover what it takes to become the English speaker you know you can become too.
- It’s important to “think big” and visualize yourself speaking effectively in the future.
- However, the frustration comes from the gap (space) between where you are now, and where you want to be with your English in the future. How do I get there?
- You need to stop searching for a “magic method” to fluency, and start focusing your time on the simple process.
- Daily connection with English, using methods and content that YOU enjoy, is the key.
