Making mistakes is an important part of learning a new language.

You should try to fix every single mistake you make immediately.

Not all mistakes are equal. Some mistakes are more important to fix immediately than others. Which mistakes should you work on first?

Your teacher gives you back your homework with a grade and some comments. You should:

What's a good way to find out which mistakes you are making?

You should find out what mistakes are common for speakers of your native language. For example, Spanish speakers often make the same English mistakes as other Spanish speakers.

The longer you have been making a mistake, the harder it may be to fix.

You do not need to write down your mistakes. It's a waste of time.

It's a good idea to write down what you are doing well, too. For example, maybe you are making fewer mistakes with your participles. Maybe you spelled a word correctly. Write it down because it's good to pay attention to your improvements.

Native English speakers never make mistakes when they speak English.

Hello Emma, nice video. I am that person who hates making mistakes in front of people and this is not helping me because each time I do mistakes and I am corrected I learn even better this way.
Most of the time my mistakes is with tenses and prepositions, hope you will do more videos on that.
Thanks for your wonderful videos.

Sunday, April 8th 2018

Also I have learn from another teacher, that if you want to speak without being embarrassed, just let it be known to the people you are talking that the language is not your native language and you will be free to speak as you want. But also ask them to correct you when you do mistakes to identify and correct them next time.

Thursday, April 12th 2018

Haha! I was very optimistic with this response
7. The longer you have been making a mistake, the harder it may be to fix.

true
false

If you have been making the same mistake for a long time, it is often harder to fix. The good news is that you can fix it. You need to be patient with yourself and have a plan on how you will fix it. Keeping a journal or diary of your mistakes can help.

In our culture you should not ask other people to correct you, when you make mistakes. They do it every godd@mn time for its own pleasure. I often feel like the single sportsman in a referees’ world.
