#040 Correction when Speaking English

Listen to a new episode of Speak English Now Podcast, your favorite material for practicing your spoken and heard English. You will also learn about lifestyle and culture, language, vocabulary, and how to improve your English more effectively.


Hi everyone! I’m Georgiana; founder of SpeakEnglishPod.com. My mission is to help YOU speak English fluently.

  • Today I’ll talk about correction when speaking English and how it affects your fluency.
  • Later you’ll practice your speaking with a funny mini story.

Let’s start!
A student asked me this question not long ago: “Is it effective to be corrected when you speak?”


Let’s say you’re an English student, and you’re trying to practice your speaking. Your first idea is to hire a tutor who will correct all your mistakes.

At first, it seems like a great idea to be corrected. Every time you make a mistake, the tutor will tell you the correct pronunciation, and that’s how you’ll learn to speak correctly.

Yet, based on my vast experience as an English teacher, I must be honest with you and tell you that this approach isn’t practical. In fact, overcorrection prevents you from developing fluency.

And when I talk about fluency, I mean speaking without pausing too often. It’s when you’re making some mistakes, but you’re not continually hesitating.

The problem with being corrected too often is that you’re always being interrupted.

With Georgiana’s method  I have started speaking English from minute one and this is exactly what I needed. With the traditional method you will practice grammar, grammar and grammar, but with Georgiana’s method you will practice listening and speaking and in my opinion this is the most important thing when you are learning a new language.
