“The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one.”

-Albert Hubbard





Why do you believe in Connection NOT Perfection!

  • My name is Krishtiwan and I am from Kyrgyzstan and I believe in Connection NOT Perfection because I won’t be perfect in English so I am trying to enjoy it through Connection!
  • My name is Savio and I’m from Brazil. I believe in Connection NOT Perfection because the most important thing to me is to be understandable.
  • My name is Sarah and I’m from the Philippines. I believe in Connection NOT Perfection because the urge to connect always supersedes the  power of Perfection.
  • My name is Vivian and I’m from Brazil. I believe in Connection NOT Perfection because everyone is a single person. All of the people have something to teach and something to learn from others. It’s a knowledge exchange.
  • My name is Juan and I’m from Colombia. I believe in Connection NOT Perfection because the non-native speaker learns by making mistakes. For that reason I listen every day to AEE.

Listen to the episode to hear the rest of our listeners!

  • Connection NOT Perfection works for me
  • In this life, nothing is perfect but a bunch of things can be connected
  • Connection is about people and people aren’t perfect
  • If I could speak perfect English I would have no reason to hear your nice voices

  • Our imperfections keep us connected to each other

All Ears English is about much more than just learning English.

We want to create a metaphor for life so that we can get things done in the world and so that people can love us.

That’s why we believe in Connection NOT Perfection in English learning and in life.
