Tip #1: Be Encouraged – Your English Is Probably Better Than You Think It Is!
Unfortunately, a lot of English learners have a very negative view of their English skills. Do you ever find yourself saying or thinking things like…
“My English is probably full of mistakes.”
“I’m afraid to speak, because other people might not understand me.”
“I’ve been studying for years, but my English is still bad.”
I can tell you honestly – your English is probably better than you imagine. As the teacher here at Espresso English, I’ve interacted with thousands of students. I correct hundreds of homework assignments from students in my courses. So I can say with confidence that most of you are doing great in English!
Yes, of course there is room to improve. But you already have good English skills, and I can understand your speaking and writing. That’s a really big accomplishment.
So if you tend to have a low opinion of your English, try to eliminate those negative thoughts by focusing on what you CAN do, not what you can’t do yet.
That’s all for today, but don’t forget to check out those free sample lessons from my courses! And keep watching my channel for the next nine motivational tips, which you’ll see every couple days during this month.
