  • I agree with you, we should not focus yourself when we speak others. We should focus other person and the result we want to achieve.

  • I started English course last June, sometimes I feel pressured when I speak, thank you for the message.

  • May only question is: if you’ve lived so long in Malaysia, why aren’t you speaking Malay instead of expecting the folks in the pharmacy to speak to you in English?

  • Amazing video. Thank you.

  • This is so right on! Thank you! 😊

  • I watched this after taking an online Spanish lesson where I felt all three of those symptoms of the brain shutting down. If there had been a panic button, I would have been ready to push it. I needed to hear all of this, even at 41 years old as a seasoned teacher. I teach English as a second language and I want my students to make mistakes so that they have the ability to answer and get practice in speaking. It's hard to be as gracious with yourself.

  • Thank you so much. That is very helpful to me

  • this is exactly what i needed to hear. i understand and speak french so well. like i can admit it and even though i know i get so self conscious and overthink what im about to say when someones talks to me that it gets to a point where i cant communicate what’s in my head in words. ive been learning french since i was 10. i’m 20 now and everytime someone speaks french in front of me i devout all my focus on responding with NO mistakes which usually dosent get the convo anywhere and leaves me awkward and red as a tomato. this woman is right. languages aren’t art to master and perfect, if u can communicate your ideas you should be confident enough to speak your thoughts out loud! so who cares if u made a mistake?? thank u ma’am!!!! much love

  • Awesome

  • Thanks 1. No judge environment is the key point 2. English is not a art of master, but a tool to get result 3. We need focus on others and give a respond. It is impossible for us to focus on everything together, like express correctly, no grammar mistake, and focus on their questions……

  • I think it's the accent that bothers people when speaking a foreign language. I mess up grammar, use silly words when speaking in my own language. But I know, the person I'm talking to would get the message. In English it's a bit different. Even though grammar and everything else is alright, not sure people would understand my accent.

  • so for the past 20 years i've been helping malaysians and other southeast asians to speak better english and through training thousands of southeast asians i've discovered a very surprising truth i've discovered that how well somebody communicates in english actually has very little to do with their english level it has a lot to do with their attitude towards english there are people out there who have a very very low level of english and they can communicate very very well one of them that i remember was a student a participant of mine named faisal he was a factory supervisor english level very very low but this guy could just sit and listen to anybody very calmly clearly and then he could respond absolutely express his thoughts beautifully at a very low level of english so today i want to share with you what is so different about people like faisal how do they do it and second of all why is this so important not only to you but to your children to your community and to the future of malaysia and third of all what's one thing you can do starting today if you want to speak with that calm clear confidence that people like faisal has so first of all what is so different how do people like faizal do it so to answer that question i'm going to take you back about 10 years okay so i was training staff at that time and my daughter at that time was taking piano lessons and i started to notice two really strong similarities between my daughter's attitude or thinking towards playing the piano and a lot of malaysians thinking or attitude towards english now first of all i should tell you my daughter absolutely hated piano hated the lessons hated practicing this is my daughter practicing piano okay this is as good as it got this is the real thing and she dreaded going to piano lessons because to my daughter going to piano lessons she was filled with this sort of dread because it was all about not screwing up right because like for a lot of piano students to both my daughter and her teacher her success in piano was measured by how few mistakes she made now at the same time i noticed that a lot of malaysians went into english conversations with the same sort of feeling of dread this sort of feeling that they were going to be judged by how many mistakes they were going to make and whether or not they were going to screw up now the second similarity that i noticed was to do a self-image you see my daughter she knew what good piano sounded like right because we've all heard good piano and she knew what her level was and she knew how long she'd have to play for to speak to play like that and a lot of malaysians i noticed had this idea of what good proper english is supposed to sound like and what their i see a lot of you nodding and what their english sounded like and how far they'd have to go to get there and they also felt like they were like my daughter just bad bad piano player bad english speaker right my english is not so good

  • My English teacher keeps telling me:"if you're afraid of making mistayou'rekes, you'll end up making more mistakes than you could have done" he's so right
