When you want to speak a foreign language it is almost as if you need to change the programming in your head!
During the initial stages, most of the way you speak will be based on your native language because your brain will be frantically trying to translate everything that you want to say from Spanish into English! That is why you will feel so tired when you spend a whole evening speaking in English.
As you improve, the need for translation will not be so evident but what remains are the subconscious mistakes that you say without thinking. This is what my new book is all about: The mistakes that you make without even knowing it!
After that, you arrive in paradise which is where every language learner wants to get and the language just becomes easy and almost effortless. That is an amazing feeling and at this point, you might even start to think or even dream in English...wow.
So, yes, you need to "cambiar el chip":
❌ Change the chip
✔️ Change your way of thinking
✔️ Change your approach
✔️ A change of mentality
Hope that helps!
