For the longest time, i was sooo afraid of speaking Japanese, for fear of making mistakes, but after seeing Benny Lewis(Fluent in 3 months) horribly stumble through his Japanese,It made me less afraid to speak, and so yesterday after a few years i spoke to someone in Japanese on Skype! I’ve got to say it wasn’t that bad really. I made a lot of mistakes, but so what? Also I’ve gotta say i was better than i thought i was( lots of room for improvement though). So i’m definitely gonna be doing it again. The point i’m trying to make is don’t be afraid to speak, even if you make a lot of mistakes, because the time you spend being afraid is time you could be using to get better.
Formally apprehensive about speaking
