How to improve your English skills: 5 things that hold you back

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.

Here’s our list of 5 things that you might be doing and that prevent you from achieving desirable results.

1. You speak English only with a teacher
2. You want to have perfect English (“speak like a native speaker”)
3. You want to speak only with native speakers
4. You narrow down English to your professional jargon
5. You can’t find time for daily practice

Watch the video to find out how you can change it.

Can you relate to any of these 5 things? Which one is your pitfall? Let us know in the comments.

One thought on “How to improve your English skills: 5 things that hold you back

  1. English is a foreign language in my country. English is taught at schools from grade 1 to 12 and at college. Most people learn English for 12 to 20 years, but they can’t speak English.
    When I was in school, the teaching of English was poor. We used to learn only grammar and vocabulary. Students were unlikely to have the chance to practice speaking and listening. Even the teachers did not speak English in class. As a result, we master the grammar and vocabulary but can’t use the language for real communication.

    Younger generation is luckier now. Thanks to the advancement in communication technology and internet, they have a wider access to learn English through social media and YouTube channels. No wonder they can speak English better.
