This week we’re talking about rules.
Not the rules you must follow.
…the rules you must break!
…and break them like Van Damme breaks bricks.
Rule #2 (YOU MUST BREAK) For Fluent English: Don’t Break The Rules
English Class Day One: Learn rules
English Class Day Two: Take a test
What’s the message?
Don’t break the rules!
They’ve got it totally backwards.
They teach: rules first, communication second
It should be: communication first, rules second
Just like a baby learns to talk.
Just like a kid learns to ride a bike.
Just like an athlete learns a sport.
The baby makes mistakes.
The kid falls.
The athlete misses the ball.
So if you want to speak better English, start speaking and start breaking the rules.
