The Courage to Speak

Find your natural confidence for languages

Learning a language is all about making connections. When you speak a new language, you’ll make friends with people from countries and cultures different to your own.

You want to connect with people… so why does it sometimes feel so scary to speak your new language with a real human being?

I’m Shannon Kennedy, Language Encourager at Fluent in 3 Months. I’d like to work with you to help you find new confidence in speaking your target language.

I’ve been there myself. I love learning languages, but for years I felt anxious (sometimes even terrified!) about speaking them. I’d like to share the methods I used to overcome my anxiety and discover my natural confidence.

You’ll discover your natural confidence too and once you complete Courage to Speak you’ll be ready to have real conversations in your target language – whether that’s on Skype or in person.

Courage to Speak guides you step-by-step to building your confidence. I’m going to show you:

  • Why your mind goes blank in the middle of conversations, and what to do when this happens. I’m going to show you how to maintain momentum even when you feel like you’ve “messed up”
  • Why learning a language can sometimes feel too much to handle – and a simple technique you can use to beat this overwhelm;
  • How language learners actually block themselves from learning a language with invisible roadblocks. I’ll show you how to find the roadblocks you’ve created, and how to navigate your way around these roadblocks;
  • How to make sure you find people who have got your back and keep you motivated to learn a language. In fact, a lot of confidence comes from knowing that other people believe in you;
  • Why learning a language – and especially speaking a language can feel so scary, and how to make this into a fear you feel able to deal with;
  • How to be absolutely sure you know enough to start speaking a new language. There’s actually a good chance you already know enough… you just need to take this simple test to find out;
  • What to do when it feels like you’re wading through sludge with language learning, and there’s no way through. This happens to almost everyone, so it’s important that you know what to do when it happens to you;
  • How to get solid confidence in your pronunciation and accent, so you can be sure you’re saying things the right way;
  • What’s at the root of your fears around language learning, and how to respond when this fear is triggered so you can come back stronger than ever.

Through all of this, you’ll learn the courage to speak your new language, in real conversations.

Courage to Speak is broken down into 9 easy to follow modules. Each module includes a video, an article, suggestions for further reading, and a worksheet with actions for you to complete.

You’ll also be invited to join the small, private Courage to Speak community on Facebook. It’s a safe space to work with me and other language learners as you watch your confidence grow.
