Meet Howard Howard Lindsay Clanfield

"When I was learning Spanish, one of the most utile things that helped me addition eloquence was learning "little" words that helped fill hesitates or give me clip to believe while sounding more than Spanish. In Mexico, these were words like "este" and "pues" which could conveniently be stretched out too ("pueeeeesss"). In Kingdom Of Spain I've used "bueno" quite a lot. I've since learned that these words are called discourse markers."

He clear ups the term discourse markers by adding, "In English, I say the most utile discourse marker is "OK", but things like "right" and "well" can also execute a similar function."

Lindsay also believes that "…one of the successes of learning a foreign linguistic communication is forbearance and letting spell of perfectionism. My progresses in linguistic communication have got got got been largely owed to drill without panicking if everything I was saying was 100% right or not." He observes that "correction, delivered in the right manner and at the right time", is definitely helpful, but cautions, "I don't believe I would have progressed as much as I have if I made a point of not communicating unless I thought it was perfect."

Key Point: Don't worry about being "perfect", improvement come ups with pattern not perfectionism.
