About Speak Confident English
“I believe you can be successful in your life and in your career with English. You can say what you want and speak with confidence. You can be fluent in English… and it doesn’t need to be difficult.” ~ Annemarie
Hello! And welcome!
I’d love to know, does this sound like you?
Reading in English is easy for you:
You sometimes use English at work. When you read emails or read information in English, you can understand it. You even enjoy reading some books, blogs, or magazine articles in English and you can understand everything.
When you listen to people speak English, you can understand.
Maybe you can’t understand everything, but you understand a lot. Native speakers are difficult because they speak so fast and use so many idioms, but you can understand most things. You can watch movies in English with the English subtitles sometimes. And you listen to some English podcasts.
You know a lot of English grammar rules.
You’ve studied English for years. You know the grammar well. You can tell others about the rules of English grammar. And you have a good foundation in vocabulary as well.
But when you speak, everything is lost.
The problem is when you speak English, you can’t remember anything. You forget words and grammar. Vocabulary is stuck in your mind. You feel silly. You feel nervous.
You’re afraid no one will understand you. You’re afraid you’ll make too many mistakes.
So you stay quiet. You avoid speaking English.
- At business meetings you stay quiet, you don’t say anything, you don’t give your opinion or share your expertise.
- In conversations, you only listen. You don’t share your stories or experiences because you’re too nervous to speak.
- You dream of a new job but you don’t try to get the promotion or the new job because you need English for it. But you don’t feel confident in your English skills.
“I want to share with you a great news! It will be something like “my story of success” or “the person who has changed my life”. To begin with, I need to say that I have been learning English since my childhood in any possible ways: with teachers, on courses, by myself. But I didn’t feel myself confident in speaking, because my English wasn’t fluent. And one day I’ve found an information about Confident English and I’ve joined. All Fluency Challenges, Fluency School course made me feel more confident in my English! And I’ve made a decision to change my job. So I had my first job interview in English and I’ve got a new job! None of that would have been possible without Annemarie! So the most sincere and heart-felt “Thank you” to Annemarie who provided me with support, guidance and precious lessons.”
