because people speak English
A theme that students continuously talk to me about is their accent in English. They ask me: Is my accent good? Do I have a strong accent? Do I sound native?

There are 3 types of learners: auditory, visual, and kinesthetic. Auditory listeners can learn better through practicing and learning with reading and writing. Visual learners can improve by seeing charts, pictures, maps, or anything visual. Finally, kinesthetic learners benefit from physical experimentation: speaking, moving objects, drawing pictures, and anything using the hands (this is the type of learner I am).
I find I dont belong to any kind of them~ giggling
THis is wonderful. Respect Luman.
I did a presentation at my english club on a similar topic. It's called "The Melody in English" and it went down well. People reacted automatically at the next session and you could see they stopped trying to sound native and focused on how to convey their message effectively, which is the purpose of a language.
Sure, nice message Jeremy, our first worry cannot be lose our accent, but being able to communicate effectively!
oh thank you that made sense to me.
Thank you, Estela, for your comment! What you say is very true; communication is key.Cheers! :)
Your video is very motivating for foreigners. Our focus should be on communication, the other things will come with time. I'm from Brazil. Thank you.
Good point, ahmad al arabi. People need to focus on their ability to communicate rather than worry about having a "perfect" accent.
first thank you for video, i like that point about ability to communicate with english speakers instead of focus on imitate native speakers (british,,us,,,), mostly i like to hear english in different accents :)
I ike this topic, it was a important commnent that help me to identify some mistakes in my pronounce, thanks by video.
