Have you ever ‘frozen up’ while trying to speak Spanish?
Even after putting in the time to study Spanish – with an app, a book, or Youtube videos – has your brain ever shut down while you were trying to talk? Maybe you were just starting to build confidence with the language, when someone hit you with a question you’d never heard before, and you found yourself totally speechless.
Freezing up is embarrassing, and confidence-shaking! Whether it happens meeting Spanish-speakers here at home, or on a trek through Peru, or in a meeting in Mexico City, in front of a stranger or a friend, it’s never fun.
If this has ever happened to you, don’t worry: you are not alone! And you can avoid such awkward moments thanks to a simple solution.
