hi Sara,

 

i'm learning Hebrew and oh yes i know what you mean!!! my mind goes blank and freezes, but i'm ok with reading, however slowly...

 

my solution is to find opportunities to speak, no matter how short, but for now, they still have to be in a quiet environment so i can pick up confidence while feeling safe at the same time (so what i mean is i haven't "exported" my Hebrew out into the street yet, or very rarely). i'm also trying to think in Hebrew instead of in French or English when i'm alone and/or at home, pronouncing simple sentences out loud just to get used to hearing myself speak in Hebrew.

 

about your English:

- when i start to read (or reading)...

- does anyone have this problem?

 

best of luck,

Elisabeth

I think the key is don't think too much and do it.
Even if you are unsure about the grammar structure, or about your pronunciation, just speak whatever comes to your mind.
Sometimes I just say lyrics of songs that I think fits in the sentence haha
and the other person says "hey that doesn't make any sense" but who cares.
I'm going to have to learn someday :)

"Feel the fear and do it anyway."

I have "butterflies in my stomach," I get "stage fright" before I have a language exchange. But I just go ahead and do it. I tell myself that speaking and listening are what it means to learn a language.

There's no harm in reading about bicycles, but to learn to ride a bicycle you just have to get on it and ride. And suddenly there are six things to think about all at once and you wobble and you fall, because you cannot think about six things all at once. Slowly, slowly, slowly it sinks into your brain.
