There are two types of learners: the first are those who don’t have difficulty in expressing themselves, even knowing that they make mistakes; the second type are those who fear to make  mistakes and as a result they   often remain in  silence. 

I would like to talk to the students belonging to this category  and give them a piece of advice. 

The first thing to remember is that it is inevitable to make mistakes when learning a language. If not, it would not make sense to attend  a course. No one can think of facing a path of learning without errors, unless being  a genius … (are you one of them ?)

On the other hand, the error, be it in pronunciation, grammar, syntax, etc is paradoxically helpful. In fact, an error  followed by a clear and detailed correction helps the learner to  understand his/her  error and he thus won’t repeat it again. In my teaching activities I often  induce my students to make “strategic “errors”  in order to explain and focus  on some points that may be critical. Statistically, very often these errors are not repeated again. Obviously, the learner must be  receptive.

Moreover, do not be embarrassed  towards your teacher  at the idea of the to making  mistakes in  the pronunciation, in the conjugation of a verb, or in any aspect of language. You’ll never look bad (except if you  repeat the mistakes after the corrections 🙂 No teacher worthy of being considered a teacher  will laugh. His/her mission is precisely to provide all the explanations necessary to ensure that all the doubts and questions of the learners find all the necessary answers.  Do not forget that the teacher is there to help you.

So, dear  shy learners, you have to know  that it is useful to make mistakes, don’t stay silent because of the fear of making a mistake, and always trust your teacher.

So talk without any fear  and you  will get good results !!!!!
