Sometimes we put too much pressure on ourselves don’t we? We want “l’anglais facilement” otherwise known as easy English. We want to learn English NOW and we want our accents to be PERFECT. Well, lucky for us, there’s really no way to do either of those things quickly. AND, there’s no such thing as the “perfect” accent because 1. that’s just a matter of opinion and 2. everyone on the planet has one. There, so now you can relax.
On a more serious note though, what is stopping you from speaking English right at this moment? Are you horrified at the thought of making mistakes? Do you cringe at the sound of your own voice? What if I told you that it’ll never “get better” by not acting? That’s right, you have to start talking in order to make progress. Why do you think it takes soooooo much time to make progress in a large classroom where you only have one person (the instructor) doing most of the talking?
So why not take things into your own hands? Start talking now, before you like that sound of your voice and before you have a huge stockpile of vocabulary words and phrases. Just speak right now and get it over with.
How do you start? Start by using simple English phrases at home with your family and friends. Make it a game, make it silly. After a few times, it’ll become a HABIT and that’s exactly what you want. You WANT the use of these phrases to become a habit so that you don’t even have to think about what you want to say. Instead, the right words just come out, all on their own.
Allow us to help you with this by watching our videos (like this one or maybe this one) and slowly repeat after us. And while you’re there, why not just subscribe to our channel so that you’ll have access to all of our your videos as soon as we publish them? We even have easy English dialogues that you can use in the comfort of your own own. You can do it and we’ll be with you every step of the way. So like I love to say here at LearnPlayAnglais, “just speak!” and start using whatever skills you have available at this very moment.
