Do you say mean things to yourself such as “I can’t believe I just made that mistake in English” or “I am so stupid that I’ll never learn English”?

Do you say these things to yourself?

Today we want you to ask yourself, what would your friends say about your English?

A good friend would never say the mean things that you say to yourself, right?

So why do you do it to yourself?


What can you do if you have this problem? (everyone has this problem)

  • Recognize when you are allowing negative voices in your head
  • Try to stop the negative thoughts or at least choose to focus on something else but remember that it’s hard to STOP having certain thoughts. Instead, you can re-frame the thought or add a positive thought on top of the negative thought or just focus on something that is real, like your breath.
  • Try to replace the negative thoughts with positive thoughts

Next, find out if you need a native teacher.
