Experience of success in training in English: for the aid to students and teachers of
Now I am a tutor with 15 - summer length of service and a lot of the pupils who are freely stirring in English and leaving thanksgiving comments in my address. But once everything was absolutely in a different way...
B 1998 was burst by a default and in firm where I worked as the translator, in one of the world`s largest the American company ACNielsen, reductions began. Also I got laid off. Having sat down at home, I soon understood that it is necessary to adapt somehow to the changed conditions and to earn a living, and took pupils. It is necessary to tell that I taught private lessons and before, but all attempts came to an end with failure training someone in English. It besides that I perfectly knew language. From this I drew for myself the first conclusion: if the person well knows language, it does not mean yet that he can teach the same another. For example, all of us speak in the native language fluently - Russian. But here, for example, to you suggested to meet group of students from tomorrow - for a boundary and to conduct with them Russian lesson. Whether many will be solved on it, without knowing a technique, the principles of training, equipment? Even if will decide - that from this it will turn out in practice? In that is that everything and business...
the Success in training in language, as we know, consists of mutual efforts of the pupil and teacher. And in order that everything turned out, everyone has to perform the work perfectly well. And so, from the teacher the first condition - deep understanding of how to construct a lesson and to present material that to the pupil it was easy, interesting and effective. That there was a result: free communication and understanding of language. How to reach it?
Coming back to our history, it is necessary to tell that experience came on particles. All my pupils had one problem: they as dogs - everything understood, and could tell nothing. They knew the most difficult temporary designs, analogs which are not present in Russian. They knew such subtleties and could explain such nuances which could not explain - why quite so - any native speaker. But when business reached communication in English - they turned into the courageous guerrillas who vowed not to tell the enemy words.
graduates of domestic schools and HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS come up Against very similar situation. It seems something was long and tiresomely learned at school, then - the same at institute, but as a result - porridge from scrappy knowledge and fear to speak.
Why does that happen? Just in order that it is good to learn to speak language, it is necessary to learn to think in it and to create in it, that is to create phrases, offers, designs. And in our sovok textbooks there were generally long boring texts about the Homeland and party in English which we translated all a class. Of course, we learned to read. Learned to understand something. Received a basic vocabulary. But did not learn to state the thoughts in English us almost or learned very little. And there was not enough time for everyone in a class. Here not before individual colloquial training - 30 chaps sit and hardly - hardly “catch up“ what the teacher speaks to them about.
I Had even one incredible thing. The German working in Russia invited me as the teacher of English for the Russian wife. She did not know German in general, and in English hardly they spoke. Well, for love, as we know, of the word - not most important, and all - in several months of family life becomes boring also hunting to talk. Here he also decided to acquaint her with literacy. It is necessary to tell what his wife told in English much and willingly, at the same time, stirring all grammatical designs what only are in porridge. She for some reason especially loved the verb to be, inserting it in unpredictable forms in any parts of the offer where it was pleasant to it. Well, we with it took the textbook on Murphy`s (Raymond Murphy English grammar in use) grammar and let`s it study. And the textbook - that good, advanced. Generally, in few months of our occupations it perfectly knew, than Present Continious differs from Present Perfect Continious (that not each teacher will tell a descent) as it is formed and when Past Perfect why Future Perfect Continious etc. is necessary is used. And with success used all this in the now the wanton English speech similar to sayings of ancient English knights and kings. Generally, everything came to an end in the fact that her husband with stared resorts to me and shouts: “Please, make back as was. Same it is awful! So nobody speaks now!“
Here with such baggage of unsuccessful experience I came to a new stage of the life. And after the next failure wanted to throw, frankly speaking, all this business, but at the right time came its Majesty Sluchay.
Just at this time to me one more victim of dismissal of an era of crisis which decided not to waste time in vain and to tighten English came to occupations. She insisted on classes in the textbook (and there were rights). It was the Oxford textbook Streamline; she assured that she wants to be engaged only on it, and told here what history. 15 years, since the childhood, she studied French: at first at school, and then at institute and in postgraduate study. And only year studied with the tutor English on Streamline. But when she goes abroad, in shops, in hotel - everywhere - she speaks in English because in English it is much easier for it to speak after training in Streamline during 1 year, than in French which she learned 15 years according to the Soviet textbooks. This fact seemed to me stunning and improbable, but to suspect her of deception there were no bases: she spoke in English really with confidence and categorically insisted on classes in Streamline. To me was all the same on what to teach (I according to all textbooks taught equally without results), and this offer very much intrigued me so I agreed. After the first classes in Streamline I understood in what a counter. In the textbook there is practically no text! All textbook is from beginning to end constructed on dialogues and the live English speech, that is that just and it is useful to you at trips abroad and in communication with English-speaking. Actually, main objective of studying of any language is a free communication on it, but not the translation of texts, not knowledge of abstruse grammatical designs etc. And authors of Streamline went to this purpose in the shortest way: they train in what most of all (and first of all) is necessary for people. And the new lexicon and grammar is entered very gradually, is dosed therefore it is easy to be engaged and not napryazhno. Everywhere the technique of “drilling“ - that is repeated repetition before digestion of material is used. Also it turns out, as to study according to such textbook very easily and to teach - in pleasure. And the most important - at all is very good results. All begin to speak quickly, literally from the first lessons as colloquial designs are repeatedly fulfilled (“otdrillena“) at a lesson. And houses are fixed in exercises on a workbook (Work Book).
When my pupils go abroad, they have no problems in communication. After two - three months of occupations they speak at lessons in English also fluently and quickly, as well as in Russian though maybe it is not absolutely ideally correct. But it now - business of time and practice.
Here - that I also saw the light “at the end of the tunnel“ when already almost decided to give up as a bad job tutoring. Now none of my pupils refused, gave up occupation. Nobody was tired, passed (before it was usual practice, and classes in Streamline as I spoke - do not tire and do not strain). At all process of training went quickly and effectively. Pupils rejoiced that at them everything turns out that they already speak, and had even more a desire to study language. In the people and among teachers there is an opinion that Streamline - the outdated textbook. Perhaps it and so (it is written in 70 - x years), but I would tell that it is rather amusing. Favourite heroes of his authors - the English bum and the priest - a star on which various lexicon is fulfilled. The only thing that I know precisely: classes in this textbook - are very effective, yield fast positive results, are pleasant to pupils and turn work of the teacher nearly into entertainment.would even tell
Ya so: training in other textbooks which I tried can be compared to the road in dark which conducts in a dark thicket where breaks. Training in Streamline - not walking, not driving, and weeds rather, flight of a bird over the boundless blossoming meadows; she soars, rejoices, sings, and its way lies in the boundless blue sky...
As I build lessons of Streamline? Everything is simple. We read dialogues in English and we translate.“ Drillim“ several times, substituting various words and expressions (they are given in the textbook near dialogues too). Then I take the textbook, I say the passable dialogue in Russian and I ask the pupil to translate into English. Difficult places we again “drilly“. Then we watch grammar on Work Book (workbook), or I explain it in process of transformation of dialogues and I give exercises on the house with which we begin the following lesson (I also read homeworks in Russian, and the pupil translates into English).Why classes in Streamline are so effective
? As I already spoke, we learn what is really necessary and is useful first of all in daily communication. These are colloquial phrases, speech designs which are used in live informal conversation. Besides, on occupations we learn to think and create in English; obligatory part of all occupations - transfer of the same designs from Russian into English. The more ourselves translate into a foreign language - the easier for us to think, speak, to create in language. > Why it is easy for p to study
? In the course of teaching I understood for myself one more important principle: before to take something from the shelf, it is necessary to put it there. I will give an example. In Soviet period of the teacher often forced pupils to deal with grammar, gave a task to read on house reading tiresome books with a lot of unclear words. Except a zubrilok very few people read them and tried to understand. Then at lessons demanded what was not explained from pupils and were not given. Pupils do not know - scandal, the two, disgust for study. To study it is heavy and uninteresting.
For myself I output such principle: before to ask something from the pupil, he needs to chew it, to full understanding to explain and to put in a mouth. Then many times to fulfill in practice. And then already unostentatiously to ask. And even if he will be mistaken also after that - not to abuse that, and to praise for diligence and to start everything over again. Here such here approach. It is pleasant to pupils. And results and attendance of occupations speak for themselves.
What it is still important to know it was easy and interesting to study?read to
a joke Recently. The man comes to car service - the motor decayed. The master goes around the car, opens a cowl, long looks, on the one hand comes, with another. Then takes a sledge hammer and strikes the motor. The motor is started, the car went. The man is happy, asks: “How many from me?“ The master speaks: “Hundred dollars“. Man: “What? Yes for hundred dollars I can knock a sledge hammer!“ Then the master draws the check:“ Blow a sledge hammer - 1 dollars. Knew where to knock - 99 dollars“.
So still to us should be known that our car went easily and beautifully - did not go, and flew? So, I open skill secrets: this trick. It is necessary to remember sequence of a statement of material and a technique of removal of designs in the speech. Here the main principle can be formulated so: training has to be constructed consistently: from simple to difficult. Training in itself should not be a stress and a most important task for the pupil.
What for this purpose is necessary? To begin tasks with the simplest. For example, to read dialogue in English and to translate into Russian. With the benevolent help of the teacher - it is not so difficult. And in Streamline as I already spoke, tasks become complicated gradually. So, we read and we translate until the pupil does not get used to this design and new lexicon. Then “drilly“ (repeatedly we repeat the same), substituting various new words. And at the end already - we translate the same dialogues from Russian into English. Besides provided that the teacher is always ready to help, to prompt, allow to spot in the textbook - that is in every possible way promotes that the pupil was easy and pleasant to study. Such technique proved the efficiency in comparison with “tserbersky“ when the pupil as a result of severity and attacks of the teacher has a fear to make a mistake, then - a stopper, and as a result - the termination of occupations.
At my lessons, paradoxically, but pupils protest - “Do not prompt“, “Do not help“, “We want“ - and I as careful chicken - mummy, I calm them:“ We only study “, “ same not examination“...
However as practice showed, Streamline is shown not all. To whom does it suit, and to whom is not present? It turned out that this textbook is ideally suited for those at whom already is poorish, but all - any school base of English, or school plus institute even if at the lowest level. Why? Yes because there is no Streamline - the textbook purely English, that is work of foreign authors, and neither words in Russian, nor any detailed explanations there. And, on the contrary, is straight away: from the first lessons full speech designs, phrases, statements, which we “drilly“ and “drilly“. And, you see, for the person who does not know even the English alphabet it is a most important task. And here for the person having even thin school base it is just a find. He knows elementary grammar (or gradually remembers). It has a lexicon, and we slowly expand it, at the same time remembering old. To study not too simply and not too difficult. Give just what was not enough at school: to the practician. The person quickly learns to communicate and express himself in informal conversation.here is present
A of no base and it is necessary to begin with the alphabet - then everything is in a different way. Once I tried to be engaged with such schoolgirl from full zero on Streamline. And nothing from this left. In Streamline of a detailed explanation there is no elementary grammar just, and everything was necessary to explain to me most. And about exercises for fixing and there is nothing to speak: I especially for it will not make the textbook with exercises on grammar. In total - Streamline - it for few - malsk “advanced“. At this schoolgirl such mental jam turned out, and it was so difficult for it that through three occupations it was gone for three weeks - disappeared without a trace. And I became thoughtful...
In general, when unpleasant situations happen, I am not accustomed to dramatize them or to blame for all people around, and instead scrupulously I analyze the possible reasons of the events. When I find the most authentic answer in the reasonings, and the intuition internally prompts - yes, it so - I take measures and I find a positive way out.
Also and this time. Having intuitively felt what happens to it, and having mentally put itself on its place, I went to bookstore and found... the textbook of English for kids “English with pleasure“ (Enjoy English) of our domestic author Biboletova. It was just what is necessary: a lot of explanations and all in Russian; the set of color pictures - elephants, monkeys and pigs is begun from the elementary beginning, training is constructed in the form of game: animals play in theater. Everything is cheerful, entertaining, easy and fascinating.
I though to my schoolgirl was under a fifty-kopeck piece, occupations it very much were pleasant. Having rung her, I at first heard the shivering voice (“the muchitelka calls“). When came to it and suggested to replace the textbook and showed it - she very much was delighted. And when looked at the watch next time - it turned out that an hour and a half flew by as one instant, and she was not tired at all, nothing is afraid, engaged with pleasure and is ready to be engaged so as much as necessary.
By the way, subsequently with it we used both textbooks - and our Russian Enjoy English, and selectively some simple, but very useful dialogues from Streamline as it told that soon it needs to go abroad and there to communicate in shops in English.Therefore teaching for different levels of pupils very much differs in
. But anyway rescues our principle: sequence, gradualness, absence of a stress and most important task...
What is necessary to achieve success in life, knowing English? During a capitalism era English is necessary to all and everywhere. Any prospering business does not do without foreign partners (though there are exceptions). And, of course, as we already spoke, an ultimate goal of studying of language - not knowledge of difficult rules, but ability to communicate freely in English. We should communicate with foreign partners alive, and not according to the book, and the stick - a lifesaver - the kind teacher will not be near. Therefore for many who decided to promote in the international business at the center there is an ability free communication in English.by
at the same time it is noticed that at pupils, different in level, - different requests for colloquial practice. And it is necessary to train them differently. If it is necessary to communicate with “nulevika“ gradually, without overloading, within a course (otherwise you will overload, you will frighten, and the desire to study further will be gone), then with those who have already base, it is necessary to try to talk as much as possible including on free subjects. Here, besides, there are subtleties and secrets of skill.
Approximately at the same time when in my life there was a schoolgirl who brought me Streamline to me one more young lady came to occupations. She studied English few years on courses by then. Said much, willingly, with a speed as speak in the people - 300 words a minute, of course, with mistakes, but so quickly and surely that it was somehow awkward to correct it even. She had basic economic education and was going to work in the large foreign company. And she took lessons of colloquial practice that “to loosen tongue“ at employment. As now I remember, she was called, as well as me, Natalia. Generally, after several occupations I told it that she will quietly have any interview (from it - that self-confidence and not to pass!) . And so it also turned out - soon she got a job in the large international company without any problems.
A to me one more Natalia who knew English came to occupations... much better me. She had the academic education connected with language, and worked many years in publishing house the translator of fiction. As she spoke in English! - just song... But, unfortunately, it was extremely difficult to extend from it at least the word. Its character - the natural shyness, shyness, timidity and uncertainty in itself - played a dirty trick with it. She was afraid of something all the time, spoke shy, quietly, uncertainly and it is not enough, all the time mumbled, was afraid to make a mistake though any professor would not find mistakes in its speech, ideal from the point of view of grammar. The place of the secretary in the most mean Turkish firm was a limit of her dreams. I tried it get to talking, but - it is vain. Then I told it that its problems lie not in the area of language, and the field of psychology, and it it is necessary to change character. As was confirmed. When it came to interview to the Turkish firm, refused to it - know for what reason? - from - for bad knowledge of English. Owners of the company, citizens of Turkey, not very well spoke in English (even at the household level). And business was not in English at all, and more likely in her shyness, a stiffness, uncertainty, inability to present itself.
By the way when I took examination for the Cambridge certificate, British gave us marks including for “interactive ability“ - that is for ability, ability to communicate with people in general, and this assessment influenced the general test results. Generally, I made of these two stories for myself here what lesson.It is not so important
how correctly you speak in English.It is not so important
, how well actually you know language.it is often more important than

I of the practician that such people also achieve success in life.These two histories I often tell
to diffident people, and it very much helps them with life... >
As it is correct to p to construct a lesson for those who need English for work?
Making the program, you remember that you need to embrace immensity at a lesson, namely: to expand a lexicon, to study speech designs, to grind grammar and to output it in the speech, and also to develop skills of free communication on various subjects... Here an example of how I make a lesson for those who need English for work. Depending on initial level, I select the main textbook according to which we will begin occupations. For example, having basic knowledge I offer Streamline. It is more correct to tell that we begin occupations with check of homework for a workbook (to Streamline. Work Book). We say exercises in Russian, and the pupil reproduces homework in English. Then we study the next head of Streamline (the technique is in detail described above). Then I usually take Lyubimtseva`s textbook “Business English“ where too there are a lot of dialogues and informal conversation - but generally on the working and used in business communication subjects. There is a lot of business lexicon and, generally, there is everything that needs to be known for work in business. Then we take any specialized textbook on a profile of business of the client (for example, “English for accountants“ - if the pupil works as the accountant, “English for physicians“ - if studies or works in medicine, etc.) . Now in bookstores a set of specialized textbooks. And at the end we surely leave time for free communication (the technique of practice of colloquial English which I apply, is described below). I begin conversation with the general questions: “Where was?“ “What did?“ “As spent time?“ And with what conversation will end - it is never known because communication - it is always live, is always interesting, unpredictable and as someone from great told - “human luxury“...
What is a language barrier? And how everything - to overcome its?
of Many graduates of the Soviet schools and HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS the problem of a language barrier concerns, namely - lack of experience, inability to communicate in English, competently and freely to express the thoughts. What is a language barrier? From where it undertakes? Whether it is possible to overcome it in general and if it is possible, then how?Answers to these questions I found
when began to be engaged in kinesiology and psychotherapy. When on consultation people put a problem of a language barrier - at all similar stressful situations from the childhood emerged. For example, at lessons at school abused for mistakes, schoolmates laughed, gave a bad note, roughly tore off and corrected on each word etc. All this, it seems, remained far in the past and long ago is forgotten and as in that song, “memory is covered with such big snow...“ . But actually, as results of scientific researches testify, the endured stresses did not get to anywhere and forever remain to live in us, in deep levels our unconscious even if we remember nothing them. The matter is that the brain fixes in memory cages every moment of our life, and even if we forgot any events long ago and strongly, information on them is stored in cages of memory of a brain and latently influences all our life. By the way, our many unconscious fears, complexes, uncertainty, offenses, hostility, and also our choice in this or that situation are explained by it. The mentality for 90% consists of the unconscious motives based on long ago the forgotten last experience, sometimes and the earliest childhood.
What turns out? We forgot about the stresses endured during study at school about rough teachers and the two of English long ago, but all this continues to live in us latently. And the fear to make a mistake deeply lives in us still since then, and even many years later does not allow us to express freely the thoughts and to speak a foreign language. And having only got rid of this fear, having splashed out negative emotions and having replaced them with positive, it is possible to find again ability to speak a foreign language easily and freely; also as we learned to speak in Russian and expressed ourselves when we were absolutely small - easily and directly before came to study to school.
Thus, it is possible to remove a problem, fear, a complex, to disclose the blocked abilities. How to make it? I do it by means of psychotherapeutic corrections: I find the stressful situation which blocked you, I discharge negative emotions in this situation, I rewrite a plot on positive - and as a result talents reveal, the problem leaves, abilities reveal. But often happens that for the life we acquired not one, but a set of stresses and blocks. Then it is necessary to rake all of them little by little. And, eventually, result always positive.That who not really wants to go deep into psychotherapy I offer
the next way to break a language barrier. Present that you met the Englishman or any English-speaking which lives in Moscow recently, learns Russian and Russian for it not native. Of course, it will make mistakes, speaking in Russian. But whether you will laugh at it? Whether you will offend him? Of course, no. All of us understand that it is language, not native for it, that it is difficult to learn Russian. We, on the contrary, most likely, will praise it for desire and aspiration to learn language. And, of course, if it is the interesting person and tells interesting things - to us soon it will not be important at all with what grammatical form he invests the thoughts. We will listen to it and to briskly support conversation, without paying attention to mistakes...
is followed from this by a conclusion. No matter, as you speak; it is important what you tell... If you utter brilliant ideas, attentively listen to you even if you not absolutely competently express... And it is much worse if you talk a complete nonsense, faultless from the point of view of grammar.
Coming back to attempts of communication in nonnative language, one may say, that in the same way foreigners and indulgently treat us. And, if some people scrupulously belong to distortion of the language (for example, Germans and French), then British and Americans not such. They are very friendly, very quietly and indulgently treat our efforts to tell something to in English and try to help in every way when we in a difficult situation. And do not take offense at all when we make mistakes. Eventually, they are gentlemen, are polite, cultural and brought well up. Generally, dare, children.Usually such introduction exerts
positive impact on all my pupils. All of them cheer up, become more brave and slowly begin “to cement“...
How to learn to speak fluently in English? Whether it is possible? And if “yes“ - that as?
How to forget to speak in English, to acquire a heap of complexes and fears, is known firsthand by everyone who studied at school. And here is how to learn to speak in English easily and freely and without stress - to it I was taught by my foreign colleagues from foggy Albion (England).
Having left work and having received the decent severance pay, I, rather from nothing to do, also in English decided to improve the skills. According to the announcement I found the teacher in the newspaper - the native speaker, the Englishman. Also did not regret about the spent time and means. That invaluable experience which I endured helps me and my pupils many years since then and will help all life. Having come to a lesson, I saw unusually beautiful gentleman who perfectly knew both English, and Russian, but the most important - a modern “bourgeois“ technique of teaching foreign languages. And at bourgeoises, as it is known - all for the person, for the sake of the person and at the top level.So far I told
about myself - it did not interrupt and never corrected me. He quietly sat and did marks in the notebook. And when I finished, he told: “I do not know what to teach you to, Natalia. You did not make any mistake in English. But nevertheless I can throw to you several new expressions and interesting words - it is possible, they will interest you...“
For comparison, I will tell how I adopted experience at my Russian colleague - the teacher of English - when came to teach to one of universities of Moscow.
Checking homeworks, E. for each mistake snatched on pupils as the dog who broke loose. Her anger was furious and genuine... As a result pupils one by one... in general lost a speech power. They turned pale, reddened, lost a speech power, hardly murmured, and then at all became silent, having pressed in a school desk. She shouted more and stronger... And then complained to me: was surprised why nobody goes to classes. And does nothing. And - what stupid - nothing is understood. And what only she did not do - and wrote to dean`s office, and called parents - and all of them equally do not go. Why - it is unclear...
Later, studying kinesiology, I learned that when we have a stress (for example when shout at us, abuse or even just correct) - we block forward front shares. This zone of a brain (our forehead) is responsible for processing and the analysis of a situation. They are very sensitive and are blocked from a stress first of all. And when they are blocked - we are not able it is productive to think, neither to analyze, nor to understand, nor to remember. Therefore in order that process of training was successful - it is necessary to create psychologically comfortable quiet situation first of all. Then it is already possible to learn in the quiet atmosphere something... It is well known and applied by our foreign colleagues. Besides, they know that if to abuse for mistakes and to punish, then there will be soon a fear to make a mistake, then a stopper; the language barrier will as a result be erected and in general the desire to learn language will be gone. Where there is a fear - there is no love... It is impossible to be afraid the teacher and at the same time to love her subject. The fear kills all good feelings, blocks abilities, destroys mentality and an organism.
Besides, these wisest bourgeoises noticed that if to correct the person on each mistake when he speaks, then at first he will feel shy, then will be frightened, and then will break off in general. Will be it, as fish. And then you will not force to tell it any more. Unless under tortures. So the human body is arranged. And at all people - it is identical. Therefore thought up not to interrupt at all the person when he speaks. Except that it is a sign of high culture, it also an opportunity for the pupil to get to talking in English - without fear, without stress, in the atmosphere of goodwill and comfort. “And how mistakes?“ - you ask. “What them now - at all not to correct“.“ Of course, to correct,“ - they will answer. But - flies separately, cutlets separately. Remember, correction of mistakes is how effective for you during the speech? Whether you remember what you were told? Whether you repeat these mistakes further? And how do you feel psychologically?
And so, it turned out that when the person is keen besedoyyu to correct it extremely inefficiently. He all the same does not remember corrections, repeats the same mistakes and, as a result, except complexes - from these corrections gets nothing. For correction of mistakes thought up here that. They write down them (at the same time try, that the pupil did not notice - that not to irritate him), and then when you finished, suggest “to look which - that from grammar“, previously having praised you. Then open the textbook (for example, Raymond Murphy/English grammar in use - very available and successful textbook on grammar), find those sections where your problem grammar speaks - and suggest to read explanations and to do fixing exercises. Such technique proved the efficiency in practice. In detail to sort mistakes and to do their correction exercises in a quiet situation - gorazdo is more effective, than to interrupt and to try to correct something quick. As a result of such occupations the grammar “is ground“ very quickly - literally within 2 - 3 months (of course, depending on initial level) is brought to perfection. Besides, already from the first occupation the pupil practices the informal conversation, without being afraid that someone “will besiege“ it. As a result of later the first two - three occupations people begin to express easily and quickly the thoughts in English, focusing attention on sense of what speak about, more and more being fond of communication and, thus, gain “fluency“ in language, fluency in English to which, actually, and aspire.as all of us speak
A foreign languages after 2 - 3 bottles of beer? Here means from a language barrier of all times and the people. And if joking apart, then alcohol unblocks forward front shares in what and a solution.
So what can draw for herself a conclusion from all aforesaid? And here what:
If you want to lose forever ability to express the thoughts in a foreign language - find the teacher who will abuse you for each mistake. There is also enough that it just tore off you on each phrase and constantly corrected. The language stopper and a language barrier are guaranteed to you!
If you want to get to talking in English, to reach fluency, ease and a freedom of expression - try the “bourgeois“ technique described above. They are clever people and do everything with love to the person.
I still... Everything that you do, do with love to the person. And then be sure that when you cannot cope with a task and all are already ready to send to hell, the help will surely come. Of course, if it is necessary for somebody. And if stars light - it means to somebody it is necessary?
of Be happy and enjoy English!
