Hi Jade! Thanks for this lesson, but I also want to thank you for the advice.

    What has helped me to some good extent to built up my confidence -when talking to someone in English- is to look at my mistakes as a learning tool and not as a sign of my weakness in the language.

    Changing your attitudes towards mistakes is my best piece of advice.

    Thanks Jade for your suggestions.

Hi, Jade! Thank you for the advice.
What should I do as I am always running out of words when I speak English…

Profile photo of Lee Bing Hong Lee Bing Hong

Thanks Jade for such a valuable advice. I personally find it really hard while speaking with native speakers especially Australians, since they sound more hard speakers. For me it’s become a piece of cake talking with native American speakers. Thanks EngVid for providing us with awesome teachers. Best wishes!

Thank you. I remember the first time, when I met a native English speaker, it was an American, who had come to his bride in our city. The problem was in my not knowing what to talk with him about. I think the reason was described in Jade’s first lesson- my introvercy. But the matter of honour and curiosity drove me to speak English when I met foreigners, so I could improve my English.

I find that difficult to listen in British accent. Maybe because I have been familiar with American accent through films and tv shows. Recently, I have heard that Ielts usually uses British accent in Listening section. :(( So I am trying to listening to you, BBC and the like to practise myself. Your video really inspire me. I have never speak to native speaker before, after this video, i will take your advice and start communicating to them. Thank for your advice

Thank you so much for the lesson, Jade. I agree completely with you. I will have no fear if one day I have to speak to a native speaker. I think that if we may make mistakes in our mother tongue, why we may not in a foreign language? By the way, I love your British accent. I have just realized my accent is a blend of American, British and Brazilian one, and I am trying to approach my pronunciation to the British standard. Bye!

Thanks a lot for the advices, teacher Jade. Though I´m not nervous anymore to do it, I remember I really was, which reminds me of my first time. I was eighteen and worked as a toll booth agent when this car made a wrong turn and ended up on a lane for special vehicles. I was asked to go talk to the driver. The more I was approaching the car, the more nervous I was getting. They were American and looked more nervous than me because they were lost, which made me take a deep breath and ask them to speak slowly (they spoke too fast!). It was such an amazing experience, because as soon as they knew that someone there spoke their language, they were all okay and calm. Then I knew where they were headed to and gave them directions. It was an unforgettable experience! I love, love, love English ;)

Thank you for the great advice. I totally agree that we NNE speakers should make a lot of mistakes to master the language.

You are very pretty by the way, I just have to say this. Thanks.

Actually, most of our problems and disabilities come due to our thoughts..thinking about making mistakes and comparing to others will never change thing rather than wasting our time and energy as u previously said teacher 👍 hope that these guidelines will be applied by us as second language speakers.

i think, making mistake during learning something is good, because these mistakes make your learning way good in time, as long as these mistakes aren’t fatal. But making mistake during learning english will your english getting better in time. And i still hate talking with native speakers, because Because i will keep extra efforting to catch words coming out from their mouths. i therefore love this feeling of having hate and great time in the same time while talking to them.LOL I believe i did many mistake while typing it. thanks for encouraging us!!!

Please* :D

    Yeah, Júlio is right. The correct expression is “native English speaker”. If you say “English native speaker”, we will think you are talking about a person from England that speaks a language called “native” (?).

Profile photo of berah oussama berah oussama

hey Jade, I’m a learner too, accent learner, but most of the times I’ve noticed that, if I rehearse or speak to myself, I’m completely doing good, and also I can put up an accent, but when I’m speaking to someone, sometimes I can’t bring up desirable words and I totally forget about the accent and I start speaking with my native english accent. One way i have found to counter that is, To take a pause whenever I miss out words instead of speaking phrases like “you know” and “umm” i take a lil pause think and bring out the word, but i still can’t work on my accent that i forget to put up.

Profile photo of DenisFlorin DenisFlorin

    Hello Denis!

    In my opinion, the best way to increase our vocabulary is reading, not only when we are learning a new language but also in our own mother tongue. So, read the more you can, and you will realise that you will begin to use new words and expressions naturally.

    By the way, “numele meu este Eduardo”. If you want someone to practice your English, be free to call me, OK?

    Bye!

I let me to make mistakes when speaking to native speakers — I’m human, I’m not perfect, but I try to learn from every mistake when someone corrects me.

One day in Toronto I asked a clerk in a bakery “Can you slice this bread to me?” instead of “May you slice this bread to me?”. “Can” and “may” have no differences in a bare translation to Portuguese. The clerk smiled to me, pulled the sleves, showed your muscles and told “Yes, I can!”. From this day on, I try to never make the same mistake :)

Profile photo of Fabio Cicerre Fabio Cicerre

    Hi Fábio! That is a funny story, I liked it. A simple word can make a huge difference in the meaning, depending on the context. You also can use the word “could” in requests, because it is polite and makes it plain that you are asking a favour. By the way, I have read other comments of yours and realized that you can express yourself in English very well. Congratulations!

      Hi Eduardo! You are talking right next to the Olympic Games!

      I’m proud you noticed that my English is improving. I leave some comments here to thank the teachers, to entertain and also to practice my humble writing skills.

      From my understanding, you express yourself in English very well too!

hi guys i would like to ask about somthing : is here a post of speaking english and practice it?

Profile photo of zinouba zinouba

    Hi zinouba! As far as I know, if you want to practice English with another Engvid student, you have to write your e-mail in a comment, like this one, and wait someone to reply you. By the way, do you have Skype? If so, let me know, and I will add you, OK?

Yep. It happens to me all the time. T_T I get soo intimidated. But thanks for your advice I will definitely apply this to my life.

Hi Jade.
I’m really fascinated by the way you are pronouncing words.Your accent is incredible to me.Even though other listeners keep saying me that my accent is to high extent close to American, I have recently made my mind to learn how to pronounce and put stress on words just as the same as you do so.However, It seems to be much of a tough work to have got a British accent like you.Will you be giving me a piece of advice how can I master at this please?Thank you in advance

I’m in the group of those people who don’t have self-confidence when they talk with other native speakers.And as a matter of fact I don’t know how I can struggle with this real problem.I speak in a good and intermediate level and I usually say to myself if I visit a native speaker from England for example;undoubtedly I talk to him or her but when I see someone I forget all of my words!!!😕

I am worryed about doing mistakes. But I am glad to know that most of people leaning a new language have the same problem. And it’s very relaxing to know that native speakers don’t care a lot about our mistakes. And they just focus on the conversation. I ll try to express my self confidently and i ll do my best.
