Now you have started to think in English. When you are looking at anything around you, the first thing that comes to your mind is the English term for that particular thing. Now whenever” you open your phone, you are seeing ‘Think In English’ on your screen. Now your wife has started teasing you for your English way of thinking! It’s time to grow now.

Once we have mastered thinking in English for simple words, it is essential to put those in simple sentences. Remember, this course is for learning speaking English, not for learning the grammar part. It is assumed that you are familiar with the grammatical aspect and all you need is the confidence to publicly speak in English without fear or hesitation. So I shall be skipping the grammar side in this course.

So, the first thing you do after getting up is recollecting the tasks you completed yesterday and reorganize your thought process. Now do a bit soliloquy. Start with simple sentences to describe the surroundings. “Good Morning. It’s a beautiful day. The birds are chirping. The sky is clear. There is no chance of any rain today”. Once you have started thinking this way or putting words into sentences, you have started feeling a bit confident. Isn’t it so? Do not complicate the process by thinking in complex sentences or sentences with difficult words. You may be an expert in English writing skills and whenever you start thinking in English, the natural thing coming to you is using difficult words to sound suaver. Remember, you are not learning spoken English to clear a written language test where your command over the language will be tested. You are just learning it to help yourself cope with difficult situations that may arise in your professional or personal life. What you require is just the working knowledge of the language and its grammatical aspect, not the intricacies of the language. So just be simple in your startup. Now, let’s resume our work. Just think what are you going to say if you meet an old friend. ‘Hello. It’s been a long time. Where are you posted now? What about your family?” Or if you are going to help your father in his works- ‘ Hello papa. May I help you? This will save you time, I don’t have much work now”. Or if you are asked to introduce yourself in front of a group of people- ” Good morning everyone. It’s a pleasure to meet all of you. I am Sergio. I am from Barcelona. I have done my Masters in Fine Arts. Besides, I play soccer as well. I play at the center back position.” Look, I have avoided complex sentences in all the conversations. Once you forget my caution, you are seriously going to mess it up. So till the time I do not tell you, do not start thinking in complex sentences.
