Hello everyone. This is Jeremy and you’re listening to Jeremy’s English Tips. The series where I teach you interesting expressions or share language learning tips.

Episode description

My English tip for you today is, become an actor. Have you seen a movie lately? Did you watch a movie in your native language or was it in a language you were studying? If you’ve seen a movie recently then I’m sure you have also seen an actor. So I want you to imagine your favorite actor. Actors are good at acting because they study people, and as language learners we also are in a way, studying people. We study language, but indirectly we are studying the native speakers of that language. What I mean by this is we are learning about their culture, their way of thinking, their way of life and in doing so we are learning to talk and act like they do.

Take home messages

  • Learning English is more than just memorizing grammar and vocabulary. It is also about learning the culture, habits, and thinking patterns of English native speakers.
  • Norms, mores, taboos, and laws differ across cultures. It is important to learn what are acceptable and what are unacceptable topics of conversation when speaking English.
  • It is normal to feel awkward and strange when speaking English. It’s a foreign language, after all! Copying native speakers will make your English sound natural.
  • Imagining you are an actor is a useful exercise than can help you develop an identity as an English spea
