language. Don’t expect to be able to speak as fast as
in your mother tongue. Slow down and give
yourselves time to think (in English). People
appreciate a well thought out response to a rushed
and confusing one. Learn a few set phrases, verb

places you have been to, and people you
met during the day. Make sure you do it
every day and it becomes a habit.
Write out your thoughts:
You can slowly move to writing out your thoughts
and feel-ings. Keep it short and simple. The
important thing is that the reader should be able to
understand you. Try to think in the English
language, rather than translating from your mother
tongue. You will get a hang of it as you go along.
This is a good start and just the beginning! They say, you have l
earnt and internalized a language, when you dream in that language.
