???? How can I speak like a native speaker?
First, you need to decide what your goals are. Are you looking to lose your accent so people won’t recognize that you’re not a native speaker? Or you simply want to speak with clarity and confidence?
Whatever it is, you need to know that a foreign accent is not a bad thing. It's a part of your identity. Of who you are. Your goal should be to sound clear and get people to do what you want them to do. You want to feel confident in your English voice so that you never let your English hold you back or prevent you from achieving your goals. Aiming to ‘speak like a native' creates an unfair expectation of yourself and can make you feel like you’re never good enough. #CommunicationOverPerfection​​ #speaklikeyourself​
