Episode description

In this episode of Jeremy’s English Tips, I’d like to talk about the terrible twos. Do you have something like this in your native language? In English, we have this term, the terrible twos. This term describes a developmental stage in which young children under the age of three throw temper tantrums quite often, and say no to seemingly everything.

Key points that Jeremy covers in this episode

  1. The “terrible twos” are a developmental stage in which toddlers throw temper tantrums quite often and say “no” to seemingly everything
  2. As language learners, we must also go through this phase in which we do not know how to communicate what we want or need and often get frustrated as a result.
  3. The fully developed native speaker in you must be like the patient parent, helping the little one to learn to communicate what it needs.
  4. This phase will pass, just as it does with young children. Continued repetitive exposure to content in English combined with deliberate practice is the fastest way to get out of this phase.
  5. The number of hours you invest will dictate how fast you grow and improve.
