19 thoughts on “The Power Learning Podcast – 19 – Your English Fluency Questions Answered Part 1

  1. I am a shy person and I think that is why I am  not able to put in practice the words that I know and when I have a conversation I am focused trying to understand what the people is talking about it, so when I have to answer them I can not speak and create long sentences because I am worry. Excellent podcast. Thank you!

  2. Thank you drew for answering our questions that was so helpful and i encourage you to keep doing that 😉

  3. Actually,you are the only one that i hear your conversation from the beginning to the end without stuck with any word . Really appreciate your work and time doing these videos thank you.

  4. You're doing great, Drew. You really have a hands-on experience when it comes to teaching a language. That's because you once struggled while learning Japanese. 
    Keep up the good work!
    Thumbs up!

  5. Elisa Cermeño, I have the same problem that you have. I'm too shy, and even in my native language I don't talk much. I know a lot and a lot of words in English, but when I try to talk and keep a conversation for a long time, I can't. I also try to understand everything people say and it tire my mind.

  6. I was going to activate the expression "going to" but I realized I already did it so I'm supposed to keep doind this.

  7. I did remember when i was in elementary grades our teacher corrected my pronunciation of the word often bec according to them its silent t, should be pronounced ofen but as i noticed many are pronouncing it off ten. What really is the correct pronunciation?

  8. I guess that the best trick to learn and review the sentences and words alredy caught is using the app called Anki. I use it for review the sentences and I very recommend.

  9. I don't know what happens to me, because, my listening is good but when I have to speak in english I'm fell totally lost. Why this is happen? Why I understand and when I have to say a phrase or in a conversation I'm feel lost? Plssssssss help me

  10. Thanks so much! I have a strange question for you! I'm in benin in africa! Who is there for me to realize how fast or good i'm at english speaking ? Help !!!!! Someone to listen to me and correct me . Real speaking i want your accent. You're pretty impressive
