英語で自分に自信をつける : Building up confidence In myself

The most beautiful thing you can wear is confidence. ― Blake Lively


Generally, Japanese people don't have confidence in their English speaking skills. So when it comes to speaking English, they suddenly change their behavior and become shyer. 

Then, how about Japanese people exceptionally speak English? Appearantly, they have plenty of confidence in themselves and behave quite differently.

Does that mean learning English is good for building up people's confidence and self-esteem, or pepople lack self confidence in Japan and that's the reason why Japanese people can't speak English?

So today, let's think about the connection between building up confidence and learning/speaking English.

1. 英語上達という小さな成功体験の繰り返し

In my opinion, if people can't do this they'll never be able to speak English because they're somehow loosing self confidence while learning English.

Rather than being ashamed of your poor English, it's much better to proud yourself when your English skills are improved. You should be happy every time when you learn a new word, because it's a step to achieve a next goal.

Set a goal you know you can achieve, and then achieve it. You’ll feel good about that. Now set another small goal and achieve that.zen habits

2. 前向きで楽しい英会話が心に余裕を作る

Positive thinking will maintain your personality bright and cheerful. That will attract people around you, and you will make various new friends who speak English. So if you enjoy speaking English, and would like to enjoy it more and more, keep going.

3. 様々な知識がついて人生が楽しくなる

Learning English opens the door to see other cultures, and the door to experience something completely different. That's why learning English can change you life, and you'll be more confidence. While enjoying your new life, you'll accordingly have more opportunities to speak English.


To summarize, building up confidence is very important to start speaking English, because otherwise you can't say a word whatever your English level is. At the same time, if you start speaking English it help you to strengthen self confidence even further. What do you think? Don't you think it's pity that some Japanese people are just pessimistic while learning English?

Well, that's all for today's journal. Thank you for reading till the end, see you next time!
