I didn't buy it, maybe I can hear from you.

It doesn't help you speak more fluently, but it helps to shut off the part of the brain that constantly makes you second guess yourself. Words seem to come more easily, but I don't think grammar gets better. For me It's only helpful early, after an hour or two I speak worse. I will say that it is interesting and fun to try. Don't get drunk, just a bit buzzed.

If confidence is a barrier to you speaking English then drinking could definitely help, but there's not really much point if you need to rely on alcohol every time you need to speak.


"U cant even remember ur own name when u are drunk"

I'm thinking you drink way too much.

U cant even remember ur own name when u are drunk.Unless your  main language is English, i'd say "NO WAY!!!"

Booze won't help you speak any language any better, but you might think it's more fun.
