A few weeks ago Stephany (the English Coach on YouTube) asked us to send her a short video as a comment on Facebook. It was a closed group post. I was very shy but I barely did it. But I prepared my speech before taking the video. Anyway, it was a good experience to make a little speech for foreigners.
Last night, an idea came to my mind that I can make my own videos every day while I driving to the office. Or while coming back home. I don’t need the share the videos public. I could keep the videos myself to see the development of my English speaking.
I made the first video this morning while driving to the office. It took 12 minutes. I thought I can share it with my wife and some close friends. And then I realized that we can also do the same thing that Stephany asked. We have a WhatsApp group that we use for our online English course, too. I could start a challenge there. And I did.
But nobody reacts to me at first. Because I just offered them. I understood that I should do it first and then maybe they would follow me.
I took a short video in my car after exiting the office and I send it to the group. I thought they will do the same immediately but it did not happen 🙂 They didn’t any react at first, actually. And I pushed some of them to accept my challenge 🙂 I think they will do it. Some of them promised to do it. I’ll wait.
I think I have started to collect some courage.
