“I just need to speak more.”
I hear that a lot.
My reply, “No, you don’t.”
You need to speak…
AND you need a daily routine.
A daily routine makes your vocabulary, understanding and grammar stronger.
It prepares you for speaking.
Because if you just speak and then don’t have a daily routine…
Well, that’s like going to the gym and then eating donuts for dinner.
You need exercise AND nutrition.
You need English output (speaking) AND input (a daily routine).
And what about you?
Do you have a daily routine?
Do you know how to start one and what exactly you should do?
I absolutelly agree with YOU
You are right. My knowledge and routine are not good. Your approach is outstanding, My pace is a little slower. I have to use google translate sometimes.
Thanks a lot
I dont have daily routine, How can i start it?
I have many daily routines. One of them that has already become a new morning habit is ‘ do Anki’. And I am so happy for this new experience.
I try to make new habbit, but it isn t easy.
Today i am in Otepää Tehvandi Sportcenter where take place Special Olympics European Cross Country Skiing competition and I speak English. It is not easy, but it is excaiting.
I think that for anything worth something, it takes a lot of effort to make it easy. As Mr.Ryan says, baby steps first.
What should I do in my daily routine? I am Hungarian and live 3 years ago in England. I work in a Care Home as a cleaner. I do the Duolingo twice a day, in the morning and evening. I speaking with my kollegs and my boss when I am in my work. I read your emails and I correspond with the service providers ( landlord, bank, telephone company) I rarely watch movies in English.
And I watch stories together with my six years old granddaughter. She goes to English school
That’s a lot! I’m sure your English is improving daily.
I agree with you, completely!
Good evening Mr Wiig! I totally agree with you. I teach contemporary music. All day long I read, talk, write. If I have a free minute, I watch an interview in English about contemporary ballet. So far it’s hard to talk. Many thanks for the letters.
Yes, certainly we need input and output as you said. I am an example of having a daily routine of finding everything to use my English even reading English manuals instead of Hungarian ones when I buy new goods for us to keep alive my understanding and closeness to the English language. Doing my best I just remain a bit dissatisfied with this, because I can read fluently and understand the texts in the meantime, and I can understand BBC-style English speakers well, but reading, watching, and listening to videos a lot as daily routine does not improve my speaking skills lacking the situations to conversate with English speakers regularly.
I agree with as
Good morning dear Mr.Vig,Yes indeed we need a daily routine of specking and thanks You do that with us,Have a great month of March!
Thanks! You, too.
Hi there, my daily routine: i have a cute dog, Bella. When we walk together outside, I try to tell ( in english) myself what we are doing now. ( we walking at the river side, the weather is nice today, we should run a little bit….)
Yes, I do .
I agree that English must be in active use all the time, then it will get better and better.
I agree with You😉
