Today’s post is a short one. I want to talk about one common struggle among our students. Grammar.

We hear it many times.

“My problem is grammar.”
“I have bad grammar.”
“I’m afraid people will laugh at me because I have poor grammar.”

And I went to tell you it’s completely normal to not have perfect grammar. Even people whose first language is English struggle with this.

But please do not make it the reason for not speaking more at work.

You can improve your grammar when you’re consistently reading, listening and speaking in English.

Yep, the more you speak, the better you’ll be.

Plus, a huge part of learning is making mistakes. You’ve got to be willing to make a lot of mistakes to improve. People may laugh or make fun of you, but unfortunately that’s just part of the process.

You’ve got to know and understand that learning is not going to be easy, but you’re going to push through anyway.

So from today, I want you to speak, even when you’re afraid. Start doing it more consistently. The more you speak, the easier it will get. It’s always harder in the beginning.

I hope this post helps to give you the push you need to take that step forward.
