I’m an introvert. 
Every time I need to socialize with new people, I cringe a bit. 
In big parties, I mingle for the first few minutes, but pretty soon I find myself sneaking out without leaving traces. 
I would always prefer to sit alone at a Cafe
And when I fly, I pray that the person next to me falls asleep for the entire flight. 
(I don’t HAVE to go to the bathroom. That’s OK) 

Being an introvert, 
​the mantra “ Go out there and speak as much as possible with people”

Just doesn’t work. We need to do things differently.

In today’s episode, I’m giving you 5 tips that will help you improve your English without going (too much) against your nature. 

One last thing, 
As I was working on this episode my partner Gil said to me: ”when it comes to English, we all feel like introverts”
Speaking a foreign language may make you want to hide, avoid large audience and sometimes even avoid situations that will require you to speak English.

While sometimes we allow that impulse to take over, 
We need to remember that real breakthroughs happen when we push through it.

  1. Hi Hadar.My name is FABIANO LEITE and I’m from Brazil. I started to study English 9 months ago and now I can understand many things. Your method is amazing. I can understand you clearly.

  2. Hello, Hadar, thanks a lot for this wonderful video and advice as always.
    I think that “when it comes to speaking in English, we all feel like introverts” is very true. In my native language, I am not that introvert. I am more like extrovert to ambivalent. But when it comes to speaking English, I feel like there is another person inside of me which is very shy and hesitant to speak. I actually suffered a lot because of this feeling. I think extroverts suffer more than introverts when it comes to speaking in English :p. Because they are acting opposite of their true nature.

    For me, I would say your videos helped me greatly because all these techniques and advice are truly come from the someone who mastered in the language other than their native language. You have mastered English like your native tongue which was impressing to me, and I try to push myself from my barriers as you have adviced in your videos.

    Thank you, Hadar, a lot.
    Love ya,

    Your student Niimka

  3. Thanks a lot, Hadar! The best teacher !
    Yes, I am introvert! All about us in this video true! And, We can’t read loud, we can not communicate with people as needed, we can’t drink coffee in lunch room – because We are introvert, we feel uncomfortable.
    When I started read loud, after 1-2minutes I read mentally, inside me. And the same we studied English “inside brain”? this is a problem!

    1. Hi Hadar,
      Thank you so much for your video.
      Due to my accent, and people asking me to repeat words, making fun of it, humiliate me with scars for life, to the point I stopped talking, going out, even buying my bread all online…
      I stop my job, cause I felt people did not understand me, and I felt really like an idiot who could not work. The lowest loser.
      They were always making judgement about how clear native speakers were, and never get promoted, only the native anglo saxon speakers.
      I really feel an outcast, and went on a severe depression.
      I am in an institution now, and my life is pretty much over. My husband divorced and took the kids back to where we belong, leaving me all alone with no one to talk in this foreign country.
      Just waiting the end really…
      All this started with a slight accent who took over my life!

  4. Thanks Hadar
    Really you stressing on very important points the learners english must be work on
