So yes you made a mistake, but let's look at the good side Let's look at the positive side the silver lining of the situation You're using English you're trying you're taking action And you're using English in an everyday conversation with new friends That's amazing you made a mistake Which gives you more information about whether you chose the right word or not?

You can't just think about English you have to get out there and use it and see where you make mistakes third you're going to remember what happened because it was kind of an embarrassing moment or a Memorable moments and a fourth you have a great story to tell so in my own life I've made a lot of mistakes when speaking foreign languages so there have been times where for Example in Spanish or in Portuguese. I made a mistake, and it was really embarrassing In Spanish I remember one day. I was talking with a man, and I wanted to say that I was embarrassed about something well the cognate for embarrassed in Spanish is in – ah de and that means to be pregnant so I told this guy I was pregnant and I just wanted to Say I was embarrassed so that was definitely even more embarrassing, but I'll never forget that in Portuguese I was supposed to be translating a song or the lyrics were let's have fun and Instead of saying let's have fun. I actually translated into Portuguese Unknowingly I made the mistake I chose the wrong vocabulary word and I said Let's have an orgasm and that was completely wrong and everyone laughed at me and when I realized What I had say I turned bright red and I was mortified Mortified but I will never forget that vocabulary word in Portuguese Which I won't say because I'll probably turn right again if I say it But the point is making mistakes can actually be super helpful for you in your English Learning journey so think of it as a helpful Beneficial thing in many ways so if you enjoyed this let me know What you think in the comments make sure that you are subscribed?

  9. Hey Gabby! This video is awesome!! But the way you sound is a bit weird!

It happened in other video of yours, so I thought I would let you know! Have a nice day and thanks so much for the video!!

  10. 🍏 Some great points in this video. I made a video about mistakes 5 days ago on my channel if anyone wants to wander over. Hint Hint. haha 😜 The challenging but necessary lesson that we NEED to learn is that making mistakes is NECESSARY for forward progress. Uncomfortable and awkward? You betcha. But completely necessary and our self-confidence with be boosted as well! I believe this is one reason that children pick up languages so quickly: they’re not afraid to make mistakes. Adults think too much and worry too much about what others think. The empowering thing is that we can CHOOSE to be more like children and really focus on our goal: progress in our language ability. Thanks for the great video and great energy! 👍🏼😄🍎

Thanks too cz your videos are awesome and very helpful to me

  14. My favourite English teacher good morning. About your question in misuse the correct word. That will give me a signal to be biggest red embarrassing man ever . Huh

  15. Hey Gabby! I fully agree with those points :). I admit I've been following you for a while (online obviously ;)) and you actually really inspired me to start a YouTube channel. I know you were one of the earlier YouTube English teachers. Do you still have your other channel on which you give/gave advice to teachers?
