Be Yourself In Any Language

Is it easy it for you to speak naturally?

We did it as children. We sometimes do it with people we know well. And we see other people do it on TV. But in practice, many of us struggle to speak naturally. We feel we can’t be truly “ourselves”.

The difficulties increase when we speak foreign languages, whether for work, or on holiday. We worry about getting things wrong. We go blank. And we tend to adopt a cautious, low status persona that doesn’t feel comfortable to us (or indeed to others).

Be Yourself In Any Language can help you speak happily and freely in any language (including your own), and to find ways to express what needs to be expressed even when you don’t have the right vocabulary.
