Hello! How’s it going, Awesome Go Natural English Learner? How are you?
Do you speak English as fluently as you would like to?
If your answer is, “No!” then this episode is for you!
Do you wonder what you’re doing wrong? Do you wonder why, after so much time and effort and money studying English in classes that don’t work, why you’re not fluent in English yet?
If your answer is, “Yes!” then this episode is for you.
At Go Natural English, we have a unique way of learning English and improving your fluency. So, I want to invite you to join our free training, “The 7 Steps to English Fluency”, which is a short video training at gonaturalenglish.com/7steps and I want to share that training with you for free. And you can find out about more courses and materials at gonaturalenglish.com that can help you with your English fluency.
Now, there are three reasons why your English is not where you want it to be.
Number one: If you are relying on your English teacher to give you English, to fill your brain with English, without you really taking action, without you doing anything, that is a huge mistake! That is a big reason why you’re not fluent in English yet. If you’re expecting your teacher to simply give you the gift of English, then I’m sorry, but it doesn’t really work like that. If you have an English teacher, then that person, that teacher, is like your guide. But you have to walk with your guide. You have to put some effort into learning English.
Okay. Next: Is your English study a habit? Do you study and practice English when you feel like it? Whenever? Maybe if you have some free time? That doesn’t work. In order to become fluent in English, to develop a skill, any skill – whether it’s English fluency or swimming or something else – you have to put yourself on a study schedule, on a practice schedule, on a training schedule. There will be days when you just don’t feel like studying English. I don’t care! You must force yourself to study English, even if you don’t have much time, even if it’s only fifteen minutes a day. That is better than nothing. Fifteen minutes a day of English study every day will improve your fluency much more than nothing, than zero minutes of study a day. Okay? So, make sure your English study is a part of your daily life.
Third: Your mindset is extremely important. You must believe in yourself like I believe in you and your ability to become fluent in English. If you do not believe that it’s possible, then it won’t be possible. If you believe that you cannot speak English, then you will not speak English. So starting right now – Yes! Now! – I want you to develop a can-do mindset. That means that you believe you can do the things that you desire to do, the things that you dream to do. For example, to become fluent in English, you have to believe that you can do it. So, right now I would like you to repeat after me:
I can become fluent in English.
I can speak English.
So, again, three reasons why you may not be as fluent you want to be in English.
One: You’re relying on someone else to give you the power of English when you actually have to work for it yourself with the help of others, such as an English teacher.
Two: You’re not making English a part of your daily life. So, you can’t just do it when you feel like it; you have to study English a little bit ever day.
And Third: Your mindset. You must believe in yourself. You must have faith and you must think positively.
So, I would like to invite you again to come back to gonaturalenglish.com/7steps to join me in more English fluency training. So, I’ll see you over there. I hope you have a great day! And yeah! Believe in yourself! You can do it!
Bye for now!
