Stop translating in your head and think in English. It’s easy when you live through English, doing your everyday activities with an English-learning mindset.
Why is it difficult to think in English? Probably it’s because you didn’t learn to speak English this way in your traditional English class.

In this video lesson, you’ll hear several easy-to-implement suggestions for gaining more English thinking (and speaking!) time into your daily life. Thinking in English can be easy when you do these creative, free everyday activities. You’ll improve your English skills quickly when you learn to “live” English and not just study English.
