QW 051412 “Enhanced Awareness”

Well, my Operation Vowels was hit by the news that the online English school I’ve sign up for will suspend all of their services for at least one week. There might be more than 100 thousand English learners out there who’re trying to find other options to keep their English learning going without the lessons they used to take daily. It’s very likely that my next pronunciation session might be more than one week ahead, so I’ll need to work on the project by myself in the meantime. Which in fact is the way it should be. To begin with, I reviewed the old article that I practiced a week ago, for which the teacher gave me suggestions some of which didn’t make full sense to me. After intensively practicing the article from the last session, I was more able to locate the areas that I need to work on although I haven’t completely improved all of them yet. Still, isn’t it a progress? Isn’t it thanks to enhanced awareness? I believe it’s so. I believe awareness is the very first step for progress.

Last night on Twitter I tweeted, “I don't know what nativelikeness is. I'm not sure I'd go for it if I knew what it is. I just want to be able to speak in the way I long for.” It may not sound right as an English teacher, but that’s the way I truly feel as an English learner. I’ve always has role models of English speakers, almost always male speakers as I previously wrote, to emulate. Whether my role models are natives or non-natives, I just want to speak like those people that I simply like. My twitter buddy kindly replied to my tweet, quote, “Nativelikeness never existed, to begin with. I believe it's all about feeling comfortable in speaking another language.” This message made me want to respond like, “True. With passion and devotion, I'll find the way to such comfortableness. I can just give it time.” Well, to be honest, this sentence construction was borrowed from one of my favorite RATT songs. Can you locate the part that I arranged? Yeah, copying and arranging speeches and writings by natives is a good way of learning, right?
