What!! Burn my textbooks! Yeah, it’s time for a textbook BBQ.
Are you kidding? Okay, let me explain.
Most English taught from textbooks is simply not used in every day life. Often textbooks are written using basic English that is easy to translate into other languages. This makes textbook English boring.
Try using “How are you? I’m fine, thank you. And you?” with a native speaker and see how long it takes them to yawn.
It’s simple. 95% of the textbooks or English being taught is rarely used and just boring.
So, find English that is used every day and study that. You will enjoy communicating in English much more than before. Forget about all that boring English you learned in high school and focus on useful English.
