How to Forget About Your English Mistakes
Lindsay: This is an All Ears English Podcast, Episode 4: Deep Thoughts Thursday.
Gabby: Welcome to the All Ears English Podcast, where you’ll finally get real Native English conversation. Now here are your hosts, Lindsay McMahon, the ‘English Adventurer’ and Gabby Wallace, the ‘Language Angel’, coming to you from Boston, Massachusetts, USA.
Lindsay: Okay. In this episode, we’ll show you a way to stay inspired with your learning and continue to be inspired, regardless of how many mistakes you make.
Gabby: All right guys. We have a very deep thought to share with you today. We have a quote from Mr. Frank Smith. It has to do with language learning.
Here it is: “One language sets you in a corridor for life. Two languages open every door along the way.”
Lindsay: Wow! That’s deep.
Gabby: That is. That is. That is. But you know it’s true. It’s true and it’s good to, to think about this as language learners and uh, maybe just before we talk about it, I just want to mention that ‘corridor’ is like a hallway. So in a house or an apartment building you walk down a hall and you often have doors on each side on the walls, and if you know one language, you can walk down the hallway, but if you know two languages, it will open up the doors or open up opportunities.
Lindsay: Yeah, for sure. And I just think this is so true. I mean, for me going abroad and actually learning the language being abroad has made such a difference in terms of the depth of connections.
Lindsay: You know. Even if you forget the language later, the important thing is that people see that you’re learning when you’re in that country.
Gabby: And you’re trying.
Lindsay: And you’re trying…
Lindsay: …it’s just like people’s hearts open to you.
Lindsay: Right? Yeah.
Right. Yeah, so I mean, think about as a language learner, what that can do for your life, I mean your career, your social life, um, in your travels. I mean, how do people react to you when you try to speak their language and maybe you’re not perfect speaking English or, or another language that you’re learning, but people really appreciate that. Right? I mean in general- in general. I can’t, I can’t just generalize for everyone, but I think you can open up more opportunities, um, definitely like employers like to have people who speak more than one language….
Lindsay: Right. And it, it just seems like students sometimes are so hard on themselves. So guys don’t be hard on yourself. Give yourself some credit and realize it’s not easy to learn a language.
Lindsay: So you’re out there, you’re putting yourself on the line every day and, you know, native English speakers respect you for it.
Lindsay: You know. So don’t expect perfection.
Gabby: It’s not just about the language either. I think as you learn English, you also learn about the culture through the language, like different ways that we express different ideas, um, or just the grammar of the language how it’s set up. I mean, when I started learning Spanish, the first thing that we learned was that all the nouns were either masculine or feminine and… Lindsay: Oh man. That’s so tough in Spanish.
Gabby: Right. That’s really hard for us to learn and I’m sure there’s (there are), there’s (there are) things in English that are tough to learn like, like the articles, like ‘the’ and ‘of’.
Lindsay: And phrasal verbs.
Gabby: Phrasal verbs. Totally. And, uh, that’s just the way that we express ourselves, but, I mean, you’ll, you’ll open your eyes to the culture, especially when you start learning idioms. Um, that’s really how you’ll, you’ll learn how people think.
Lindsay: Definitely. I think so.
Lindsay: And that’s why we also recommend trying to surround yourself with um, native speakers. Live in a, in an international house where people are speaking English or live with American people if you’re in the US and just throw yourself into it.
Lindsay: Go for it.
Gabby: Yeah. And the more languages, the better. Right? I mean learn English.
Learn all the languages that you want to. It’s just a beautiful thing.
Lindsay: All right. Good luck.
