Why can’t I improve my English? This is a question many English learners ask at different stages of their English journey.
And I’m not talking about the case when we simply do nothing and expect results.
I’m talking about time when you go to classes or have a tutor or read, watch, learn something but still feel stuck and don’t see any noticeable improvements.
And I’ve been there as well.
I’m still there in many aspects of English learning. So that’s why I thought it will be useful for many other English learners out there to create a video about common misconceptions about English learning that I know.
Because this is what holds us back in our English journey besides grammar or poor vocabulary.
So I asked my good friend and great English teacher Marcela Sancho to join me and share her perspective.

5. You can’t find time for daily practice
