Peter: Now, Becky, here are the top 3 language learning fears according to our users. What do we have first on the list?
Becky: Ooh, the first one is a good one. It’s “I’m not good enough to start speaking yet.”
Peter: Listeners, do you feel like you’re not good enough to start speaking yet?
Becky: It’s a pretty common fear... or misconception, I think... that most learners have.
Peter: Well, here’s how you overcome it.
Becky: One - the best way to get good at speaking is to start speaking from day 1. So if you’re holding yourself back...
Peter: ...because you think you’re not good enough, well, that’s exactly why you’re not good enough.
Becky: You need to open your mouth and start talking!
Peter: Step two to overcoming this fear - In our lessons, you get the exact phrases and scripts for introducing yourself...
Becky: ...making small talk, ordering food, expressing opinions, and much more!
Peter: So, if you think you’re not good enough, the lessons will give you the exact lines to say.
Becky: Fear number two is... “I’m afraid I’ll never be fluent”
Peter: I used to worry about that.
Becky: Really?
Peter: Well, only as a beginner. I started learning Japanese first and, it’s funny because the better my Japanese got, the less I was worried about that.
Becky: So, how can our listeners overcome this?
Peter: First, you’ve got to set small, specific goals. Fluency is a big vague goal.
Becky: Right.
Peter: Arguably, we don’t even speak fluent English. There are over a million words in the English language and we use about 2,000 words.
Becky: So listeners, you should focus on smaller goals...
Peter: ...like being able to introduce yourself or having a 5-minute conversation. Or 10 minutes. Something you can measure so you know you reached it.
Becky: Because you can’t really measure fluency... it’s a pretty vague goal as Peter said.
Peter: Right. But you can measure small goals like... having a 5-minute conversation.
Becky: And as these small goals add up, you’ll be speaking very comfortably!
Peter: Becky, what’s the third and final fear?
Becky: It’s “I’m afraid that I’m not making any progress.”
Peter:  Ah, in other words, getting stuck.
Becky: If you’re afraid you’re not making progress, there are two things you can do right now.
Peter: First, use the dashboard to track your progress. If you need numbers to believe it...
Becky: ...our dashboard tracks all the lessons you’ve completed and shows how much you’ve accomplished.
Peter: Second, try a harder lesson on the site. It sounds crazy and you might not understand it...
Becky: ...but you will in minutes. Our lessons come with line-by-line translations...
Peter: ...and the lesson hosts explain everything. THEN, you’ll be making progress...
Becky: ...because you now understand something you didn’t minutes ago.
Peter: So, these are the top 3 fears. But tell us listeners... what language learning fears have you had?
