  1. ey hadar,

    1. I thought I have a lot of mistakes in grammar.
    2. Im writing the word incorrect. for example: i writing -> universaty not -> university.
    3. the accent issue.

  2. It is too difficult for me to understand what other people are speaking, if I am not interacting with them.

  3. grammar and the difficult English word is what always has blocked me to speak out. Also I think I’m late or too old to improve my pronunciation.

  4. Hi
    I live in Uk since 2007 still I didn’t speak English well because I have 3 kids and I was very busy with them I really want to find a way to speak English well because when I speak with my kid’s teacher fell shame of my self because sometimes I didn’t understand well or I can’t reply the teacher well.

  5. Hi Hadar:

    Your teachings are very helpful. However, my hardest barrier is my very heavy accent. I am from the Caribbean and wish I can drop my West Indian accent altogether.

    I am in this country more than 25 years and I am now seeing a little change. Sometimes I imitate you, lol.

    Today I imitated the sound — masstuur
    instead of master.

  6. Hello, i am from Colombia i don´t live in an inglesh speaking country, however sometimes i think that i need to master the entire grammar rules prior to speak a clear and fluent english.

    1. Yup. That’s a common belief. And of course, knowing the rules is important, but it’s also important to work on your mindset and keeping on doing the things that’ll take you forward.

  7. I am from Haiti. I always thought that I needed to improve my grammar to better speak English.

  8. I lived and still living in Toronto for the last 3 years, I am 50 years old, I am a physician dealing with patients who speaks American English daily. Yet, I have thick accent, and I don’t like it . Besides, sometimes I mentally block, although I have level 8.5 ILETS . I guess it’s the 50 years back without being reflective

    1. Hey Jamal, I see. I think the mental block is something that just happens and you need to check in with yourself to see when that happens… Maybe it’s when you’re more stressed? or tired?

      As for the accent, well, it’s never too late to gain clarity:)
