Practice English Speaking&Listening with: DON'T SAY NATIVE AMERICAN ⚠️ How to Improve Your English Speaking

Difficulty: 0

Hi, I'm Gabby from

a lot of English learners

misuse these two words


American I want to explain today why using Native American might not mean what you think it means and

Alternatives that you can say instead I want to speak English like a native american

Interesting like who like a Sioux? Uh

Who's Sioux? I just want to speak English like any Native American

Yeah, but like who like are you studying a certain tribe?



Lakota Sioux I don't know what you're talking about. I just want to speak like a Native American

I'm just learning English. Okay, I think you mean you want to

Speak like a native speaker. That's what I said, isn't it?

no, it's not if you say Native American it actually means people who are indigenous to or

Originally from the Americas for example the tribes. I just mentioned Oh

Native American actually means someone who is

indigenous to the Americas

For example, I can't be a Native American. Although I was born in the United States my

Grandparents emigrated from Europe. And so most people in the United States may be American

But they may not be Native American. Let's talk about

Alternatives to say what you really want to say. You could say I want to speak English like a native speaker

or I want to speak English like a person from the United States and

Side note when we're talking about the country

We usually say the United States and not America because America in fact is the entire

Continent and so the nationality is American, but the country is the United States

You could say I want to speak English fluently, or I want to speak English

Well now, you know

What a Native American is and is not as well as how to talk about your hopes for your English

It seems to me that you don't want to speak English like a Native American

What you mean to say is you'd like to speak English like a native English speaker

Perhaps you'd like to speak like an American

Native English speaker or a British native English speaker. Whichever you choose

I highly recommend that you practice with live online lessons

That's how I am working on my Spanish language skills

And I wanted to share with you how I'm improving my Spanish because maybe it can help you improve your English

So take a look. I'm going to show you inside my own live online

tutoring experience learning Spanish with lingo de and how you can take advantage of a special offer to

learn English in live online tutoring lessons with Lingoda

Let me tell you about Lingoda. Lingoda is live online

language lessons in English

Business English French German or Spanish, which I studied you can learn from anywhere with Internet

Of course because it's all online any time lessons are offered 24 hours a day seven days a week

You could even study every single day if you wanted to or make a schedule that works for you

I really appreciated that I could take my Spanish lesson on a Sunday when I had some free time

Lingoda offers

Structured lessons with native qualified teachers when I had my Spanish lesson

I loved my teacher she was so nice and helpful and very patient with me

I was a little nervous because I hadn't spoken Spanish in a little while

But she really put my nerves at ease and I also liked that we had free learning

Materials to work with that kept us focused on the grammar that we were learning so I could follow along

Easily. Also another thing I like about Lingoda is you can choose between private one-on-one lessons or small group

lessons with a maximum of 5 people or an average of three but

Between you and me

I was lucky because my small group

lesson ended up being just me and my teacher so it was like a private lesson and lessons at Lingoda

Start at just eight euros per lesson. Now if you are learning English

specifically for business

purposes you will love that you can get a certificate recognized by the

CEFR and Lingoda has made their business English program more flexible and more affordable than ever before starting at

79 euros per month

I had a great learning experience in my Spanish lesson

but I want to encourage you to check out Lingoda's Instagram feed where you can see some of their other students success stories and

Now you have an excellent opportunity to try Lingoda today

We have two options. The first one you can get 25 euros or

$27.50 off your first month of lingo de lessons when you use my special code for you, Gabby2

- the code is in the description as well as a link to the Lingoda website where you can book your first lesson today

The second option is you can get up to

3 small group classes or one private lesson for free and

if you choose that option you cannot use the 25 euros or

$27.50 off code so choose wisely

Personally, I would choose getting the discount but it's up to you. Which will you choose?

I hope that you try out lingo de because it's a great way for you to practice your speaking skills in live time online
