☆  dread  不安


Dread is a feeling of great anxiety and fear about something that may happen. So, yesterday we spoke about self-doubt, and it’s true a lot of my students say they are filled with dread when they think about speaking English.

If you feel dread when thinking about using English, please don’t! what’s the worst that could happen? You could make a mistake – and if the other person is a mean person, they might laugh at your mistake… and if they do, then you probably don’t want to be friends with them anyway!

And, if they are a good person, they will just ask you to repeat yourself if they didn’t understand. So, there is no need for dread in the first place!

See you next month,
