Did you know that your English lessons in school (maybe 20-40 years ago) influence how you feel about speaking English at work?

Crazy, right?

(Look for the words with a “ * ” ):

It blows my mind = I’m extremely impressed, surprised, and/or amazed by it
High-stakes situations : Important situations
To chill out = to relax by doing an activity that is calm and pleasant

It blows my mind* how the brain works when you learn English!

  •  you want to know why…
