How many times have you found yourself becoming bored when doing countless worksheets, grammar drills, basic reading comprehension exercises, etc?

How many times have you studied basic manufactured sentences like:

"Jane walked to the park."
"Jane ate pizza for dinner."
"The cat is black".

Studying the basics will help you build a solid foundation of the language, but at some point you need to be able to push past your comfort zone and advance to the next level.

We all have personalities when communicating in our native language. We are able to express ourselves freely and openly while showing others those unique personality traits which make us who we are. Unfortunately, while in the beginning stages of learning a new language, we get stuck sounding like robots. Instead of expressing ourselves authentically, we just regurgitate our basic skills and hit a roadblock.

It's during these times of stagnancy when we need to tap into our emotions. By utilizing our feelings through real world conversations, fluency can be attained and an advanced understanding of our new language is achieved.

Politics, religion, war, and other various controversial or "taboo" topics are an excellent tool to use while working with your teacher/tutor. If both parties are able to discuss sensitive topics in a respectful and mature manner, emotions can be used to strengthen conversational skills and comprehension.

The best part about conversations regarding controversial issues is that the student doesn't even realize they start speaking their new language effortlessly. Instead of getting stumped and questioning if they are using the right grammar or sentence structure during the dialogue, their emotions break that communication barrier and enable them to speak more freely.

By having authentic dialogue with one's teacher, students are able to find their own voice and personality while speaking in their new language. These conversations not only help the student learn more efficiently, but they bridge cultural differences and create a mutually beneficial environment of increased understanding and compassion.

So what are you waiting for? Stop sounding like a robot, and start letting your own light shine! Teachers and students need to push themselves outside of their comfort levels and embark on real world dialogue that can truly make a positive impact in the world. Tap into your emotion and unleash a whole new world of opportunity and excitement in your educational pursuits...

*** NEW STUDENT SPECIAL - USE COUPON CODE "KRISTAL20" FOR 20% OFF YOUR FIRST ONE HOUR LESSON! Hello everyone! My name is Kristal and I am a native English speaker from the United States. I have a Bachelors degree in English, and also a Masters degree in Negotiation, Conflict Resolution and Peacebuilding. I taught high school English many years ago before making a career change, and I now work in procurement as a government contractor for the U.S. Department of Energy. I also currently work part-time as an online ESL teacher helping students from Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. I am looking to forward to meeting new students from around the world here at Verbling! I am very conversational in my teaching approach, and I believe the more "natural" the teaching style, the more enjoyable the learning experience becomes. My lessons are very fun, and my students always say they feel like they are talking to a friend, rather than sitting in a boring English class. I'm able to relate to my students because I am also a student. I am learning to speak Spanish, so I know what it's like being on the other side of the lesson and am able to connect with people effortlessly. Learning a new language is difficult, and consistent practice is very important (especially when you feel like giving up). I am here to help you every step of the way and will guide you through the difficult times. Together, we can build your conversational skills and get you one step closer to English fluency! If you have any questions or would like to propose an alternate time to meet that is not currently listed, please contact me directly by sending a message. I look forward to meeting you and seeing you in future classes! Sincerely, Kristal
