What is your biggest fear about speaking English?

I am an ESL teacher working on a research project about why students feel so nervous about speaking English and I would love to hear your thoughts.

Thank you,
Kerry Bee

I think that the majority of foreign English speakers have to admit that FEAR of making mistakes when speaking English is one of the main factors inhibiting our spoken English fluency.

We all can definitely remember situations when we’ve made a mistake when speaking or attempting to speak, and that has made us feel insecure, embarrassed and ashamed of our level of spoken English.

Fear of Making Mistakes Feeds on Itself!
