How Useful the Flu Can Be It became clear today that I speak English much better when a have a flu. It was so astonishing! I can explain this phenomenon in this way: I didn't have much reserves to have any fears or to be scared by inevitable conversation. Most likely, my anxiety was calmed down by the high temperature and a headache. Thus, my real ability to talk was revealed. I think it cannot be used in a normal situation, but to the one conclusion I came. After this experience I have estimated a real tranquility which is so necessary to feel before speaking. So, at least you can always attempt to calm down ahead of time. You can just make an effort within yourself to hear those fears and to concentrate on your real wish to practice a language.

Maybe it was an English-speaking flu virus.

Good for you!

If I could choose, I rather continue to speak at my pace  and avoid having flu.

However, you could get  another time flu, in a the same season, from another strain.

Take care!

Exactly, kids don't have any social borders to speak.
