Soliloquy in English phase 1. “Survival “

Right. Let’s get down to the practice.

Imagine the situation where you have been left alone in some English-speaking country… You won’t be able to survive without being able to describe what sort of condition you are in even in broken English.

So, let’s start from that point.

Step ① Describing your current situation

We start with absolutely basic phrases, so please be sure to say them aloud!

With this blog post, I would like you to express your current "situation" and "feelings" by applying the method of "self-talk" whose environment is free from the pressure of confronting other people.

How was it? I guess it was so easy that you might’ve found it even upsetting???

However, this is not a place for you to input some English knowledge. This is the place to develop the skills of releasing your knowledge through your mouth.

So, try to create your own phrases that match up with your situations and output them as often as possible!

…By the way, even if you are able to describe your own situations, if you can’t get what you want or what you need across to the other person, it won’t be delivered to your hands.

Now, please read the following blog posts, and then create your own sentences for outputting… 

Step ② Expressing your desire/demands

No matter how much knowledge or information you accumulate, you will be only understood by getting them across to the others by using your voice.

Therefore, please focus on these three steps for a month or two for the time being and keep outputting your phrases by talking to yourself. w
