To get fluent faster, go with the flow!
To go with the flow means to relax and accept things as they come without thinking about or analyzing them.
This idea comes from the flow of water. If you sit in a boat on a river, the flow of the water will carry you downstream effortlessly. But if you try to paddle upstream against the river, you will have a very tough time getting where you want to go.
When students ask "why" things in English are the way they are, are as opposed to just absorbing them naturally the way a native English speaker would, they're going AGAINST the flow.
English speakers don't ask WHY! They go with the flow, accept new English words and phrases as they hear them and learn naturally. You need to do the same, and think like a native English speaker, if you want to get fluent in English faster!
Most of the time, if you ask a native speaker why something is the way it is in English, they won't be able to tell you anyway. An English teacher may give you a reason why something is the way it is, but your brain does not need this information to learn English. In fact, this information will probably do more to SLOW your understanding of English.
So, just go with the flow by trusting the English of native speakers and stop worrying about the WHYS of learning English!
Going with the flow also means that you accept the daily swings, or changes, in your ability to speak English with a smile. Some days your English will be awful and you'll get discouraged. Other days your English will be outstanding and you'll feel very proud.
Your ability to speak English confidently on any given day will depend on many things.
Did you eat well? Did you sleep well? Are you thinking about something important that you have to do? Are you nervous?
Sometimes my Japanese is on fire and I speak with poise and confidence. Other times I sound awful and I can't seem to express myself in even basic sentences. I used to get excited and discouraged frequently, but worrying about how well I was speaking on any given day didn't actually help me.
It was only AFTER I finally stopped worrying about how my Japanese was on a given day that I started feeling REAL improvement. I now understand that I must go with the flow of my language ability, spend more time speaking Japanese to get better and worry less about how dumb I may sound when I make mistakes.
