  • Hey guys what's up Stefanie the English coach here from

  • and in this video we are going to talk about how to think in English now when I

  • was in college and I was studying Spanish and I did you know all of my

  • classes in Spanish and I had professors that were native Spanish speakers one of

  • my professors would always say you just need to think in Spanish and that would

  • actually piss me off because I was like I would do it if I

  • knew how or if it was would come natural to me but the thing is it didn't it's

  • like I would have to force myself to think in Spanish and sometimes I would

  • have to translate in my head you know because I didn't have as much experience

  • speaking the language and she would just make me and the whole class feel really

  • bad because she would just say you just have to force yourself to think in

  • Spanish and I was like that's not what I want I want to be able to think in

  • Spanish the way that I think in English I don't want to have to plan what I'm

  • going to say before I say it I want to just be able to open my mouth and speak

  • Spanish right that's what I wanted well I learned from experience that that only

  • comes after you've been exposed to enough of the language for a long time

  • okay so I didn't start thinking in Spanish

  • and when you think in the language in a foreign language that's basically when

  • you're like fluent in that language I don't mean when you force yourself to

  • think in a language I mean when you can think in a language as naturally as you

  • think in your native language and you don't lack expressions you don't lack

  • vocabulary you can just like I can just sit here and think in Spanish if I want

  • I can just talk in Spanish if I want I'm fluent in Spanish right that doesn't

  • come right away it comes with time and you can't force yourself to think in a

  • language and think that that is enough that that is what will get you fluent in

  • the language what you need is enough exposure to the language so you want to

  • know how to think in English well you're going to achieve that by speaking in

  • English regularly with other people by surrounding yourself with English by

  • immersing yourself in English and that is how you're going to be able to think

  • in English it'll come with time and it comes

  • gradually so you're not going to realize it at first because you're learning

  • you're growing you're learning new vocabulary but then you realize it when

  • you look back and go wow look how far I've come now I think in English like I

  • don't I didn't even realize that this happened when did this happen because

  • there isn't like a moment where you cross over okay so obviously we can all

  • sit there and think of vocabulary in a foreign language and force ourselves to

  • do that but if you want to be able to think in English naturally you need to

  • be surrounded with a lot of English over a long period of time okay it comes it

  • comes with time and the cool thing is once you do this you may even start

  • dreaming in English a lot of people get so excited when they have their first

  • dream in a foreign language I know I did when I first started dreaming in Spanish

  • it was awesome because that's when you know you're really starting to think in

  • a foreign language so anyhow let me know what you guys think about this in the

  • comments I'm sorry I couldn't give you you know a step-by-step method of this

  • is how you think in English in a foreign language it just doesn't work like that

  • if you're not thinking in English if you still have to translate in your head it

  • is because you're not surrounding yourself with enough English or you

  • haven't been studying it for enough time okay it's your brain will naturally

  • start thinking in the language that it is surrounded with that is just how it's

  • programmed that's just how it works you won't even have to think about thinking

  • in the language you just will because our natural urges are to communicate and

  • you will have that urge to communicate in whatever language you communicate in

  • frequently okay so let me know what you guys think about this in the comments
