Hello everyone and welcome back to English With Lucy.
Today I am going to teach you how to train yourself to think in English and thus stop translating in your head.
I have got five steps.
They may seem simple at first glance, but the devil is in the detail.
If you follow these five steps, you'll be well on your way to thinking completely in English with no need for translating in your head.
Right, let's get started with step number one, word identification.
So when you're training yourself to think in English or any other language, the first thing you should do is start with simple words.
When we are children learning a language for the very first time, we start off with individual words, so that's what we're going to do here.
Wherever you are, whenever you become aware of the fact that you have an opportunity to learn some English, you might be on the bus, you might be walking somewhere, you might be sat at home like a lot of us are at the moment.
Look around you, what do you see, start picking out words from your surroundings.
