  • “I don’t have any opportunities to practice my English with native speakers”: If you want to solve this problem, there are some online sites that you can visit. Lindsay’s program called Speakative is a way to practice English conversation with native speakers. You can also try mylanguageexchange.com
  • “I have no time”: Think about your priorities- what’s really important to you? Look at your daily schedule. Whatever is most important, do it first.
  • “I have no money”: There are a lot of free resources available like this podcast and other online platforms, shows, apps, etc. Check them out and see what works best for you.
  • “I can’t understand everything that people say”: You feel afraid to enter a conversation because you are afraid that you will miss something and not be able to continue the conversation. Don’t let those fears stop you!
  • “No one corrects me”: This is not a reason for not improving your English. Go out and find a tutor or conversation program and get them to correct you.
