  3. Hi Hadar ! May I thank you and congratulate for choosing this important issue. It’s also my own experience and one can read a lot about it in textbooks of psychology that anxiety exerts a debilitating effect on every mental activity. There are many conscious or subconscious psychological mechanisms which particularly impact speaking a foreign language fluently and confidently. E.g., if you are living in an English speaking environment as a foreigner, e.g. as an immigrant your English can be quite all right. But even in that case the impostor mechanism can be generated by any kind of anxiety feeling. Nowadays, any individual in the society can be exposed to many effects triggering anxiety. That underlines Hadar’s important message. Laszlo
