How To Learn New Vocabulary | Effective Vocabulary Drills https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/42/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=42 Tue, 26 May 2020 13:00:39 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=743 Tired of theory and need the real deal?!?

In this episode I share with you an in-depth vocabulary exercise that will help you learn and remember words and use them frequently.
I based these drills on the understanding that there are many words you know but never use, for several reasons:
– You’re not confident PRONOUNCING them
– They’re not accessible (you forget to use them)
– You don’t feel confident using them correctly in a sentence

I developed a 5-step system to overcome these challenges and enhance your vocabulary.
People who have tried it told me that for the first time they felt that they were growing their vocabulary!

In this episode I use this technique with 5 words you may not be using as frequently as you’d like: inevitable, accurate, obvious, redundant, valuable.

Give it a try and tell me how it goes!

Download my vocabulary planner to boost your vocabulary: https://theaccentsway.com/freebie-163-vocabulary/

40. 6 Ways To Sound More Confident In English (Even When You’re Not!) https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/40/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=40 Tue, 19 May 2020 13:00:03 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=731 Let’s say you have a job interview tomorrow morning.
And let’s say you haven’t reached your English breakthrough just yet, and you feel a little insecure about your English (and by little I mean you’re so anxious you can’t sleep).
Since you don’t have enough time to become 100% fluent overnight, but you have to look confident to get that job – here’s what you’re left with. You gotta FAKE IT.

But how can you fake confidence?
Glad you asked. In this episode, I’m going to share with you 6 things that will make you sound and appear powerful and confident in English, even when you’re not.

And the best part?
When you fake it, it does affect your inner state and you become more relaxed and cool, and when you’re relaxed and cool, guess what? Your English is more fluent.

Pssst… external work is NOT enough. So here are more materials that will help you complete the transformation:

39. Understanding Your Voice https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/39/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=39 Thu, 14 May 2020 13:00:46 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=725 If you feel like your voice is soft, stuck, broken, nasal, partial, annoying, monotone, weak, strange, weird, or loud… I want you to take a moment and remember that your voice is probably the NUMBER ONE asset you have, that allows you to express yourself: who you are, what you want, what you think, where you’re going.

Now, I know that people don’t always have access to vocal training, and have no idea what to do to improve their voice quality (even though every person should have access to such a thing, not only public speakers, actors, and singers).

That is why, in this episode, I share with you a live broadcast I did on Instagram where we had an intriguing conversation about voice (and beyond)

Here’s what some of the people shared in the conversation:

Jessuss said: “I started to talk in English, my whole body was so tense, imagine my voice”.
“Sometimes it feels I sound rude. It might be due to speaking loudly I don’t why” – shared Marta.
“For me, it’s not about losing my voice, rather, it’s more about controlling facial expressions and spicing up my voice and body language. I feel like it’s hard to be natural when you plan all of your gestures ahead” – said Sherif.

So as you can see, if you don’t feel comfortable with your voice – you’re not alone. And I’m here to help!
In this episode, I talk about all things related to voice – how it’s created, why we are uncomfortable with it, and what we can do to improve the quality of our speaking voice.

38. Improve Your Speaking Voice in ENGLISH with these Vocal Exercises https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/38/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=38 Tue, 12 May 2020 13:00:55 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=705 Do you like the sound of your voice when speaking English?
Do you feel that you use it to its full potential?
Can people hear you well?
I don’t mean the metaphorical way of speaking “is your voice heard”’ – I mean – is your voice carried across the room and gets into people’s ears?
Can you express different emotions using your voice?
Do you feel that your voice is varied and interesting? Or is it monotone?

People tend to dislike their voices. In fact, I remember vividly the time when I used to record my voice on an answering machine and I HATED playing it back.
When it comes to speaking a second language it becomes even more challenging.
Because, it’s not enough that we have all those other aspects of a language to deal with (vocabulary, pronunciation, Grammar, etc. ) sometimes, oftentimes, speakers of English as a second language change, manipulate or HIDE their voices when speaking English.

But unlike other physical features, we’re born with – our height, body shape, eyesight – your voice is something you CAN control. If only you knew how.

In this episode, you will learn how to understand your voice, get comfortable with it, and discover a few exercises that will help you free your voice and discover new placements, expressions, and power.

Get ready to dance, sing, laugh, and get out of your comfort zone!

Yes, I get it.
The reason why this happens is because we feel limited and bored with the words that are available to us. Of course, we know a lot more words in English, we just don’t seem to use them as often.
Watch my previous video about vocabulary to see why: https://youtu.be/bd6iGLmUssQ

In this new episode I will help you understand how to integrate more words into your speaking and how to make your speech more varied and interesting (so instead of saying the same basic words, I’m offering a few different expressions to 8 VERY commonly used words).

To see a list of those words with example sentences go here: https://theaccentsway.com/how-to-sound-smart-in-english/

34. The Ugly Side of English Learning Facebook Groups 👺 https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/34/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=34 Tue, 28 Apr 2020 13:00:09 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=657 Got a QUESTION about English? Pronunciation? Confidence? Ask Hadar! https://hadarshemesh.com/ask-hadar/

There are a lot of wonderful groups on Facebook whose goal is to allow people to practice their English, and as in the case of any other group online, there are some things you need to know, especially if you’re a woman, in order to stay safe and active in the group.

1.   You don’t need to put up with anything that makes you feel uncomfortable.
2.   You have any right to stand your ground and respond to any harassing or offensive comments. Speak back, and report to the admin or moderators of the group.
3.   As a community member, if you encounter any inappropriate irrelevant comment or behavior towards other members, offer your support, comment on that, and report to the admin/moderators. Make it a safe environment for everyone.
4.   You don’t have to respond to private messages and friend requests. Feel free to ignore them if they’re unwelcome, and if they’re rude or aggressive – report and by all means block them.
5.   Limit your time online. Keep in mind that while online groups and resources can be very helpful, they’re also pretty time-consuming. In addition, make sure you’re pro-active, and that you’re not just there for passive learning.

32. How To Teach Kids English At Home – The BEST Lesson You Can Teach Your Child https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/32/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=32 Tue, 21 Apr 2020 13:00:55 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=649 Do you want to teach your kids English at home while you’re in quarantine?

In this episode I’m going to share a few tips on how to make English accessible, fun and simple for your children, nephews or neighbors’ kids (without using screens and without spending too much money or time) and what is the best lesson you can teach your child (hint, it has nothing to do with grammar, pronunciation).

Now, If you’re a non-native speaker, you might have toyed with the idea of teaching your kids English, but then thought to yourself: “But I STILL MAKE MISTAKES! Am I enough to teach my kids English? I should get them a real English teacher!”

In this episode, you’ll see why teaching your kids even if your English is not perfect, is probably the best thing you can do for them.

Or maybe you want to teach them at home (especially now, during Covid-19 where most families are quarantined in their homes) but you have no idea where to start.

You’ll get a few practical tips so you’ll know where to start, with simple English lessons at home or by incorporating more English in your day-to-day life.

I’ll also talk about how to teach kids pronunciation and other gems that will help support your kids as confident English speakers.

Why Trump Pronounced ‘Oranges’ Instead of ‘Origins’ (And How Can He Improve?) https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/30/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=30 Tue, 14 Apr 2020 13:00:45 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=633 What’s the difference in pronunciation between ‘origins’ and ‘oranges’, and why is it so hard for president Trump to get it?

The Daily Show held a contest of Trump’s mispronounced words and 3,000,000 viewers cast their vote. The proud winner was the word ‘ORANGES’.

This episode is a pronunciation tutorial that explains the difference between ‘oranges’ and the word Trump initially meant to pronounce – ‘origins’.

The winner announced on the daily show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tMH77XYGx4

This podcast episode was recorded in the midst of the Corona crisis that is happening now around the world, and exactly two weeks after we had completed the Loud and Proud challenge.
So the title ‘challenges’ seems rather appropriate.

It’s practically in our DNA.
We don’t live in an equal society and women’s voices are still not being heard enough.
As a RESULT, women tend to be perfectionist, overly-judgmental, and are required to work harder to prove themselves and to succeed.
And when it comes to English, the fear of speaking up becomes paralyzing when you’re a non-native speaker.

In this episode, you’ll find a message from your sisters around the world that will remind you that your voice matters.

How To Take Notes When English Is NOT Your Native Language https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/22/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=22 Tue, 03 Mar 2020 14:00:42 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=562 Taking notes in class, a meeting or a lecture can be a challenge for everyone. So naturally, if you’re a non-native speaker, this process can be even more challenging.

But! The secret is not in how to understand native speakers better or to write faster. The secret is what SYSTEM you use to take notes, and how to find the CLUES in the intonation of the speaker to write only the important stuff. So you save time and you don’t waste your energy writing less important things.

In this episode, I will tell you what things you should NEVER DO when taking notes but also what you need to do in order to take notes successfully and feel that you’re on top of things.

And if you have another great strategy that works for you, share it with us in the comments section of this episode! https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/22/

Has that ever happened to you? In this episode I discuss why it is not enough to improve in English simply by watching a video or listening to a podcast, and what you need to do to really see results when you speak.

20. Same Spelling but Different Pronunciation? 😱 https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/20/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=20 Tue, 25 Feb 2020 13:00:44 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=548 When you see the word ‘resume’ do you know how to pronounce it if it’s out of context?
I guess it’s going to be hard. Because two words (that are pronounced differently) share this spelling!

Homographs are words that are written the same but are pronounced differently. And English has lots of them! This is one of the reasons English spelling is so confusing. We see two words that are completely identical, yet are supposed to pronounce their vowels, consonants or even stress differently.

In this episode, I’m going to review a bunch of them:

  • tear
  • read
  • live
  • Polish
  • resume
  • use
  • close
  • present
  • record
  • desert
  • produce

Words that Sound the Same but Have Different Spelling | Homophones https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/18/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=18 Tue, 18 Feb 2020 14:30:43 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=525 Homophones are words that are spelled differently but pronounced the same. No wonder English is so confusing!
When we see the different spelling we assume that it should be pronounced differently, but English is not a phonetic language! So spelling and pronunciation don’t match!

In this episode, you’ll learn about some of the most common homophones in English and how to pronounce them. We’ll talk about:

1. flower – flour
2. here – hear
3. sun – son
4. there – their – they’re
5. right – write
6. road – rode
7. hoarse – horse
8. soul – sole
9. war – wore
10. see – sea
11. to – too – two

17. The R in English: The most in-depth lesson you’ll ever hear https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/17/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=17 Thu, 13 Feb 2020 13:00:04 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=518 To download the practice sheet click here: https://theaccentsway.com/the-r-in-english-podcast-freebie/

Many non-native speakers of English struggle with the R in English. 

Not only that this sound is challenging to pronounce (put the tongue where?!?) and makes us feel like pirates, but it also keeps changing depending on where it’s positioned. So even though it might be easy to pronounce in some words, it could be impossible to pronounce in other words and that makes us feel like the R is impossible! 

To understand the R we need to do three things:

  1. Understand how to pronounce it
  2. Understand the different types of R sounds and what might be the challenge of each 
  3. Practice, practice and then practice some more.

In this episode I’m going to walk you through each and every one of those steps, and at the end, even offer you the perfect way to practice with my practice sheet and audio: https://theaccentsway.com/the-r-in-english-podcast-freebie/

I’m also going to talk about the difference between the American R and the British R!
But most importantly I’ll give you tips and hacks on where and how to CHEAT, so you invest less effort, pronounce less R’s and sound BETTER!
Whether you’re struggling with pronouncing it or you know how to pronounce it but you don’t use it consistently,  or sometimes you become too self-conscious about it, in this episode you’ll find things you can do that’ll help you use it naturally and easily.

16. Personal Things You Wanted To Know About Me | Q&A https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/16/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=16 Tue, 11 Feb 2020 13:00:15 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=506 A few months ago I invited you to ask me PERSONAL questions. I didn’t think I’d get many questions but I was surprised to have received dozens of awesome questions, and in this episode, I’m going to answer a bunch of them:)

You’ll hear about how I met my husband, my life as a social activist, my biggest failure, my plans for the future, what I do with my hair (not much), if I miss acting and more!

It wasn’t easy for me. As an introvert, I don’t like to talk about myself much.
Besides, I’m here to share knowledge and help YOU with your English and not to speak about myself.
But I decided to do it, because I believe that it’s important for our communication and the connection that we have.
In your emails and DMs, you often share your stories (and I’m grateful for every single one you send me) so, it’s only fair that I share mine.
I hope that this episode, my most PERSONAL video ever (!), will make us even closer!
Let me know in the comments (or in emails) if you feel the same 💖

How Small, Smart Choices Can Transform Your English | The Compound Effect https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/15/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=15 Thu, 06 Feb 2020 13:00:32 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=496 Taking small actions every day leads to great results. Author Darren Hardy calls it “The Compound Effect”, and it holds for a lot of things in life. In this episode, I’ll discuss how I’ve realized it’s deeply relevant to English learning and speaking. I experienced it in acting school, in the accent training courses I took, and in the past decade in teaching and building my business. I see it in my students as well, as they put in the work day in day out, not seeing immediate results but then reach a breakthrough and impact other people around them.

09:02 – How daily practice changed my accent in acting school
13:05 – How weekly uploads led to a successful business
17:00 – Insisting on speaking English is making a difference

30:45 – The Ripple Effect, and how it has manifested in my life
33:12 – The outcomes of OUR actions

After listening to this episode, let me know in the comments on my website if you’ve experienced the Compound Effect in your life, but more importantly – what you’re going to do to build up your English until the end of the month! Yes. Break it down and build yourself up!

14. Contractions in English: Your Essential Pronunciation Guide https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/14/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=14 Tue, 04 Feb 2020 13:00:33 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=485 Download the English contractions practice sheet and the audio: https://theaccentsway.com/contractions-freebie/
Contractions are words and phrases that are shortened by dropping sounds (in writing and in speaking). Contractions are all the you’d, she’ll, we’re, isn’t etc.

These contractions allow us to signal our listeners what is more important and what is less, and that makes our communication in English clearer.
For non-native speakers these contractions might be a bit confusing.

Have you ever thought to yourself, “these short words are not clear enough when they come out of MY mouth”? Do you find yourself separating them because of that? Many learners of English as a second language feel like that but actually, the truth is you can use these contractions, and sound clearer! In this episode, I’ll tell you how to use contractions in speaking and how to pronounce the most common contractions in English.

13. How to effectively practice your intonation in English https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/13/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=13 Thu, 30 Jan 2020 13:00:04 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=475 In this podcast episode I elaborate on how to practice it effectively and integrate it into your day-to-day speech.

Because forming a sentence is not enough. And making the right sounds isn’t enough. It’s the intonation that determines the meaning of the sentence: is it a question or a statement? Is it a joke and you’re just being sarcastic? This is also where culture and your inner feelings are thrown into the mix. Intonation conveys ALL of that.

To do that you need to know how to practice! This is why I also share my most effective practice techniques that I’ve used myself and with my students, that are going to help you improve your intonation and deliver your message in a clear way.

In this episode, you will learn the 3 fundamentals of American intonation: melody, rhythm, and stress.

You’ll learn how to use melody and rhythm to stress words, you’ll learn the difference between content words and function words, why we need to stress content words and how we reduce function words. This episode will also help you understand native speakers better, as we’ll talk about common reductions and shortcuts (remember that English sounds different than how it’s written).

11. Why do I feel like a fraud every time I speak English? | The Impostor Syndrome https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/11/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=11 Thu, 23 Jan 2020 12:50:07 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=453 How does the Impostor Syndrome affect us when speaking English as a second language? And why do we feel that even when we do a good job in English – we, in fact, failed and we can’t seem to understand how others haven’t noticed just how bad our English is.
Thinking that our English is a lot worse than what other people perceive it to be makes us feel like impostors.

The Impostor Syndrome is a universal psychological pattern where you may doubt your accomplishments and have this fear of being discovered as a fraud. So even when people think highly of you, your mind basically tells you they’re missing out on something and that sooner or later the “real You” will be revealed and they’ll be disappointed. Do you feel that too sometimes?

About 70% of us suffer from impostor syndrome: you can find it across genders, occupations and races. However, you’d probably find it more in underrepresented or disadvantaged groups, such as immigrants, minorities, people from the lgbtq community, women, people of color, and of course – non-native speakers.

From my experience, as an accent teacher as well as an English learner, it has to do with the way we learned or learn English and how we consume it. We always compare ourselves to native speakers, and it makes us feel we’re not enough when it comes to communicating in English. And on top of that, we constantly hear this saying, “Speak like a native”, which only accentuates the gap between us and them – between how we are expected to perform, and how we really are. Even though we ALL make mistakes. Even native speakers make mistakes!

Also, since our schools usually use conventional methods, you get a strong message that there’s RIGHT and WRONG, and when you’re wrong, you’re criticized for your mistakes (and sometimes even not encouraged to persist), and then you get used to that feeling of being judged.

But you can overcome this self-doubt. Realize that you’re not alone in this and share your experience with others. If you want to find out more, this episode is a must for you. You’ll get to hear about the experience of some of my students and how the Impostor Syndrome held them back in life. And not just my students’ experiences, but mine as well. In this episode, you’ll understand how this syndrome manifests itself when communicating in English, why it happens, and how to deal with it. After listening to my episode, let me know in the comments on my website how the impostor syndrome has affected your life and what you’re going to do about it 💪 : hadarshemesh.com/influency-podcast/

9. The Schwa: How One TINY Sound Can Make a HUGE Difference https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/09/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=09 Thu, 16 Jan 2020 13:00:06 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=434 I mention the schwa almost every time I speak about American English. That’s because this vowel is all over the place, and once you hear it, you never stop hearing it 🙂

The schwa is a very short and “relaxed” kind of vowel. It’s a pretty tricky vowel for non-native speakers but if you get it, you get the secret to American English pronunciation and you become SO much clearer.

Also, you will find yourself investing much less energy in speaking, which is also important 🙂

Tune in and learn more about this special vowel and how to use it. And let me know what you think in the comments below.

8. Google corrects your pronunciation and tells you how to improve https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/08/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=08 Tue, 14 Jan 2020 13:00:53 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=429 Learning to speak a new language can be challenging, no doubt about that.
Especially English.

All those funky words like knight, laugh, paradigm and psychology that have all these letters that are not pronounced.

And what about the confusing pairs like celery-salary, back-buck, pool-pull that if we confuse them, we may sound unclear?

Or words like beach, focus, spreadsheet and fox that if we mispronounce them, we might get a face-palm moment 🤦‍♀️

Even when you know how certain words should sound like, you don’t necessarily know what to do in order to pronounce them correctly.
And this uncertainty leads to insecurity.

But what if I told you Google has come up with a brand new feature just for that?
Pronto is a tool I helped Google develop, and it’s based on the experience and detailed feedback I give to my own students.

How to use it:

  • Open Google on your mobile phone and make sure you’re logged in to your Google account (use Safari on iPhone)
  • Type “how to pronounce” and add any word you’re not sure how to pronounce. The Google search tool would spell the word for you as it should be pronounced. The transcription is plain and pretty straightforward
  • Listen to the pronunciation of the word, and pay attention to the sounds that are most challenging to you
  • Push the “practice” button
  • Record yourself saying the word

Pronto would detect the specific sounds that you mispronounced and let you know what you need to do in order to improve, as well as offer you more words to practice with. 

So you don’t need to be confused anymore about whether you pronounce words correctly or not. Listen to the episode and find out how you can use Google’s Pronto yourself.

06:30 – Being flexible – there is more than one way to explain something. Follow your student’s needs
12:46 – Be open – your students are your best teachers so look for what’s working and what’s not
17:27 – Clear is better than accurate – it doesn’t have to be perfect, as long as the result is clear and the student feels confident and accomplished in English
27:15 – Students don’t need to know everything. There’s a lot of important information out there, but not everything is relevant. Use what they need to know in order to transform.
30:02 – Be honest and vulnerable – Don’t expect yourself to know everything. If you’re uncertain about something, let them know and use it as an opportunity to learn
31:54 – Speak less – Being passionate is great but it’s not a lecture and they need the actual practice
33:33 – Be a coach, not a teacher – understand your role as a teacher, that it’s about getting them to take action. You need to communicate the lesson and the obstacles, to push them forward and to hold them accountable
36:00 – It’s never just about pronunciation or grammar, it’s about feeling comfortable in their own skin in English and accomplish what they want
37:18 – Even if you can’t make it, you can still teach it. You don’t need to have a native accent. As long as you know what they need to do, you can teach and coach them
40:28 – Be a translator of knowledge – simplify and translate complicated ideas into something the student will understand
41:40 – You are enough. Don’t let your accent and your knowledge and your background hold you back
44:00 – Know your worth. As you grow as a teacher, you should definitely get paid more for your services and your time
45:42 – Be organized and give clear practice instructions – review what you’ve done in the lesson and explain how to revisit it themselves

5. 10 Things You Should Stop Doing if you Want to Speak English Fluently https://hadarshemesh.com/podcast/05/?utm_source=rss&utm_medium=rss&utm_campaign=05 Wed, 01 Jan 2020 09:42:03 +0000 Hadar Shemesh https://hadarshemesh.com/?post_type=podcast&p=190 Like any other challenge or thing we need to work on, improving your fluency is first and foremost about developing the right mindset. In this video, I’ll discuss some of the things that hold you back and that you really need to let go of if you want to achieve a breakthrough in English in 2020. 

04:25 – Stop judging other speakers – appreciate what they have to say and that they’re doing their best, just like you do

06:18 – Stop waiting for the right opportunity to come – Focus on your English now and 

07:26 – Stop avoiding opportunities that DO come your way. You are ready so jump on that Carpe Diem. 

09:02 – Stop with those ridiculous expectations – you’re not an English native speaker. Set realistic goals and get a sense of accomplishment that will lead you to being an even better speaker

10:20 – Stop procrastinating – make English a priority and don’t let other things get in your way

11:25 – Stop with the negative self-talk – turn each negative thought into a positive one

13:18 – Stop consuming too much content – feeling like you don’t know enough is natural but you need to practice what you learn. Put yourself out there, apply what you already know and make mistakes

15:38 – Stop making native speakers your north star – communicating with speakers of English as a second language is as good as speaking with native speakers. Sometimes it’s even better. 

17:40 – Stop with the lists – Speak, interact, as much as possible if you want to really become fluent

18:45 – Stop comparing yourself to others – you have your own way to carve out for yourself. If you must compare, do it in a way that will motivate you and acknowledge your personal growth
