I’d like to share a secret with you…
By studying everyday English conversations you will quickly expose yourself to the words and phrases that people use in the REAL world. If you study English from a textbook, you are not going to learn the same vocabulary that people use in everyday life.
Here is how I learned this very important secret:
When I reached the intermediate level in the language I was learning, Spanish, I decided to have a language exchange over Skype with a native speaker. Despite knowing thousands of words and verbs in the language, I could not understand anything and it was extremely difficult to speak. When my friend started to write to me (when we weren’t talking), I realized he was using different verbs and words than I learned from the textbook! I studied this new words and little by little, I started to learn the RIGHT words that are used in everyday life. Conversations became easier, I understood more and I felt confident when I was speaking these new words because I had heard them used by a native speaker.
