Did you ever feel it impossible that you would ever be speaking in English? You envied friends who could but you always felt it would be difficult for YOU! You're afraid you don't have the right words, or that you would pronounce them badly. You think you'll make grammar mistakes right and left. You feel you're not ready and that you first have to "improve" your English.
Well, it doesn't work that way. Unless you jump right in, you'll never get to that comfortable stage where you can speak English well. Think about the story of the little engine that bravely puffed its way to the other side of the mountain chanting: I think I can... I think I can... and finally, it could! With the right attitude, hard work and determination, you, too, Can! This model lesson will focus on various speaking exercises and activities for learners who need a little help starting their engine, but who are brave enough to take on a challenge.
Go on... Jump right in and join the conversation!
