  • Hello, what's up?

  • I'm Gabby Wallace, your American English teacher, founder of Go Natural English,

  • making the world a more fluent place with your help! Now you want to be fluent in English and

  • you've been studying a lot of things for a lot of years to improve your English fluency.

  • Now, what if I told you that

  • learning and improving is not just about accumulating knowledge and facts

  • Improvement is actually about letting go of some things

  • Stopping doing some things if that sounds interesting then keep watching

  • Let me explain in this lesson

  • I'm gonna share five things that you can stop doing and these five tips are inside the English Fluency Formula

  • so this lesson is brought to you by the ebook that I wrote for you to help you improve your English fluency

  • So let's go to page eight

  • Five things that you can stop doing right now

  • You can let go

  • Release them into the world, and you never have to worry about them again and in the meantime your English will improve

  • How about that? Would you like me to share these things with you that you can stop doing?

  • Okay number one if you don't see immediate improvement in your English don't give up

  • It takes time to change the way you learn and to realize that you are improving. It's all about

  • Patience it's all about enjoying the journey of learning English

  • Don't fixate so much on if you've actually improved from day to day.

  • Yes, it's important to learn new things to challenge yourself

  • But don't fixate so much on have I improved my score or my grades since yesterday

  • focus more on

  • What you can do to experience English on a daily basis?

  • So don't give up if you don't see an improvement because also

  • You're gonna see that some days

  • You might improve a lot, and it seems like English is coming naturally to you all of a sudden

  • But then other days for whatever reason maybe you're feeling tired

  • Maybe you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, maybe you're experiencing a new English environment

  • Well, you're gonna feel like your english actually

  • Went back a level and that's natural

  • Because that's what it's like to learn and improve

  • You're gonna feel like you took two steps forward and one step back and two steps forward and one step back

  • But you are improving next let's talk about reading books

  • Don't stop reading a book just because it feels too difficult don't throw it away

  • Take a break

  • Try reading something else in the meantime, and then go back to that book that seems difficult

  • And I bet that after a month or two it's gonna see him a lot easier

  • It's a lot like these days with rock climbing

  • I started rock climbing about a month ago, and it was really really hard at first. I couldn't climb anything

  • It was really embarrassing by it I got a month pass and I've been going every single day

  • Sometimes twice a day to the rock climbing gym

  • And now I can climb a lot more and a lot better than I was on day one

  • some days are more difficult than others, but I can see an improvement and that's how it is with English so give yourself time and

  • Be patient with yourself

  • Number three don't compare yourself with others

  • there are they're people with other experiences and other goals and

  • Just compare yourself with you your goals and your improvements over time

  • Okay, number four is really important

  • don't focus on what you cannot do

  • look, we go where we focus have you ever noticed that maybe if you're driving or riding your bike

  • and you're looking at something you start to steer towards it by

  • accidents or

  • Subliminally, not really even thinking about it

  • this is what happens when we focus on the negative

  • when we focus on what we can't do it seems to expand it seems to get worse

  • it seems to get bigger so try not to focus on what you cannot do try to focus on what you can do and

  • lean in to your positive feelings about English your

  • accomplishments and English is gonna feel a lot easier too

  • finally number five

  • Don't try to do everything alone

  • Learning English is not a solo activity. Yes. You're smart you're dedicated

  • You can learn so much on your own, but English for me at least is about

  • communication and that means two people or three people or four or

  • Many many many many many people so don't do it alone

  • Remember if you want to go fast go alone if you want to go far go together

  • One of my favorite proverbs so remember don't try to do everything on your own join the go natural English community
