Episode description

In this episode of Jeremy’s English Tips, we are going to be talking about your comfort zone. Now, there is a very commonly used expression in English and it goes: to step outside of one’s comfort zone.

Key points covered in this lesson:

  • “To step outside of one’s comfort zone” is a commonly used expression meaning that someone is doing something they are not yet comfortable doing. It doesn’t come easily to them yet.
  • Your “English comfort zone” is the collection of topics that you feel comfortable talking about in English.
  •  Identify the holes and fill them. In other words, figure out what topics, sentence forms, or pronunciation points are difficult for you and fix them by exposing yourself to content that includes those things.
  •  Practice with a language exchange partner by talking about what your weaknesses are and sharing how you are going about strengthening them.
  •  Make repetitive listening a major part of your study routine and choose your listening content wisely so as to help expand your comfort zone.
