How to overcome your fear of speaking English!

Hey everybody! It’s Sian from Yokohama! Today we’re going to talk about tips for communicating with people in English. Let’s enjoy today’s topic.

Don’t worry about making the perfect sentence.

The most important part of a conversation is having a natural flow and fluid fluency. Don’t spend too much time trying to build up the perfect sentence structure because even if there is a mistake, your friend can still understand you!

Find things you’re interested in.

Talk about things that you are interested in. Not only will you make new friends, but you’ll be able to build up your vocabulary that you could probably use in daily conversation. It will also increase your natural fluency and you will quickly become comfortable speaking English with your new friends.

Practice English everyday.

Even on days that you don’t have somebody to speak English with, you can always practice talking with yourself or your pet! My cat is Japanese so I HAVE to communicate with her in Japanese or she won’t understand me! ฅ/ᐠ。ᆽ。ᐟ. But seriously if you speak out loud in English, you’ll feel more comfortable when you’re in a real situation.

So remember don’t worry about English, the most important thing is to have fun and feel comfortable. Next time you see me, tell me something that interests you! :)
