Current Goal: Learn 50 American Phrases in 25 Days!
It’s another Saturday night, and most people are enjoying themselves in bars, restaurants, night-clubs or simply watching some TV program, but FOR ALL I KNOW, IT MIGHT WELL BE just a way of killing time if you haven’t got anything better to do!
I, on the other hand, have loads to do in terms of running my blogs and recording YouTube videos, and after all – I can’t relax for another 2 weeks before the 50 American Phrase Acquisition Mission is complete!
Tonight I’m on phrase #22 in this mission, but FOR ALL I KNOW, IT MIGHT WELL BE my thousandth phrase I’ve learned while recording my YouTube videos for the English Harmony Blog and this blog.
You see, I strongly believe – and it’s all backed up by my English fluency development! – that my regular spoken English practice sessions are largely responsible for new phraseology acquisition, and here’s how it happens:
- I’m speaking on a certain subject;
- I’m trying to say something but the actual phrase keeps evading me;
- I’m using Google to look up the actual speech pattern used by native English speakers;
- I start using the newly found phrase in my speech!
You can’t expect developing your accent and pronunciation without spending countless hours trying to mimic your target accent, and that’s exactly what I’m doing in all these American phrase videos, by the way!
FOR ALL I KNOW, all these videos MIGHT WELL BE dedicated to completely something else, but I would be developing my American pronunciation still for the simple reason that you can easily train your target accent regardless of the subject being discussed.
Thanks for tuning in!
