"Sorry, there's no magic solution. Mastering a language takes time, hard work, and dedication. But it also shouldn't take FOREVER. You can improve faster than you realize, and I can help you!"
Today I want to tell you one of the reasons why people struggle to get fluent. First, you need two things to achieve fluency in a language: Input Output Input refers to learning, studying and absorbing a language. Most people are very good at this. You listen to music You watch your favorite movies You…
English learners ask me all the time how to find partners to practice their English with, so today I’m going to give you one of my BEST strategies.
First of all, finding people to speak English with is the easy part… you just have to know where to look.
You can use…
- Popular language exchange apps like HelloTalk , Speaky, & Tandem
- The comment section of my YouTube videos
- Our private online video platform
- The private Facebook group for my Connect & Communicate course
Those are just a FEW of the places where you can start.
But, the biggest mistake I see is when you say something like, “Hey, I want to practice my English! If anyone wants to chat, please let me know.”
99% of the time these comments are unsuccessful.
Either nobody answers you, or you attract beginners who don’t even know how to have a conversation.
There is a MUCH better way.
Here’s the truth… you will ALWAYS lack confidence in English until you decide to be confident.
Many people think if their vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, fluency, etc improves…
… their confidence issues will magically disappear.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t work like that.
You have to CHOOSE to be confident… but that’s not easy, either.
When I was 17, my best friend told me about a self-development book that was a “must read.”
She went on and on about how it helped her improve her communication skills and have better relationships with people.
She said I HAD to read it.
But I ignored her suggestion because I was too busy living my life and doing whatever else seemed more important.
Then, years later, I found the book and read it.
… and she was right.
Not only did it change the way I thought about life, but it helped me communicate more effectively & build powerful relationships with friends, mentors, colleagues, and people all over the world.
