Is it possible to improve your English level in your late twenties?

11 posts in this topic

I feel my English level can't get much better. When I go out and hang out with some people from outside and I speak its like I'm fucking dumb lmao, its like I know 1 million English words but my phrases just use 100 words over and over.

I want to orientate my career to get a remote job from some first-class European countries like UK, Germany, Netherlands..etc but pretty much all of them ask for a Proficient English level. I have intermediate level right now. It seems that to get to this Proficient level one must have certain high verbal fluency and I have doubts if that is possible to achieve at a late age.

Actually speaking it is key so speak with yourself if you have to but preferably with others, it can be online

Living in an English country > Speaking In RL > Speaking online > Speaking with yourself.  
 

writing/reading is supplementary. But reading is superior to writing in my experience.

Of course. All it takes is practice and training.

Blogging, public speaking, writing, and recording videos would all help you a lot. Also just contemplation in the language.

You can even practice thinking out loud to yourself, or use a voice recorder and narrate your thoughts to it. I've done that. It's powerful. Try talking into a voice recorder for 30 mins stright without stopping. You will feel its power. Don't judge your when you start.

Film yourself holding a 5 minute speech on any topic every day. You can talk about a pen, your neigbours dog, solipsism or anything at all that comes to mind in the moment. Keep the videos and look back to them at times, I did this every day for a few months and I think it really helped me. This small habit also helps you develop your vocals, along with your thinking and presentation skills. To keep it fun and interesting you could also practice storytelling, humour, intonation and a ton of other things related to expressing yourself.

We will destroy separation.

You need a role model who can speak very well and copy his catch phrases. Once you integrated his language skills, you can choose another role model until you develop your own style.

You can watch TikToks of Andrew Tate saying Bugatti and copy him.

I copied Andrew Tate's vibe (without the toxic mindset) and girls adore it. 😂

This.

You can also record yourself reading a book out loud (ideally fiction), listen back to the recording and practice those phonemes and words that you struggle with.

This is also great practice for speaking in general - you can find your tone and free up a lot of emotional blockage by embodying the characters and their emotional state.

I think that's a good idea, I have to find a good friend English speaker to hang out more regularly.

I see, like a solo-podcast, seems like a good idea, will try.
