They say that practice makes perfect. I don’t think I’ll ever fly though. And I don’t think practice makes perfect. I do think practice makes us better people. Better at what we do and better at who we are. Practicing English is not going to make you a native speaker. It will help you become fluent. It will help you become clearer in your thinking. I like that about using a second language, we have to anticipate our thoughts a little bit. We have to practice speaking before speaking and that means thinking about what am I really trying to say?
