"Although English is not a difficult language to learn, it is crucial that you practice it on a daily basis. Your English will improve as you practice. The more you listen, the more acquainted and sensitive you will become. You will build confidence in your speaking skills and will not be frightened to make mistakes." expressed Dr. Katie Lupton.
Ms. Patrizia Deidda, who is from a small village, also revealed that "English is not her mother tongue. As someone who is learning English, she believes that the most essential thing is to comprehend and have people understand what we say. It means you don't have to grasp every word, and you don't have to focus too much on how you pronounce it, which diminishes your confidence."
Students pay attention to lectures on English learning skills.
There are several effective and equally enjoyable ways to learn English, Ms. Patrizia Deidda expressed, such as listening and learning vocabulary through songs, watching cartoons, playing English games, being a tourguide for foreign tourists in HCMC, and so on.
Dr. Katie Lupton additionally shared Ms. Patrizia's statement by noting, "Whatever method you use to study, keep in mind that vocabulary is a major factor in English achievement. When you lack lexical resources, you will be unable to convey your thoughts, even though they are obvious in your mind."
During this meeting, the students engaged in a discussion exercise to fill in the keywords in the lecturer's questions and illustrate their decision. The students left a lasting impression on the two lecturers with persuasive and profound responses, owing to their strengths in English languages, confidence, and great expression.
