YQ15 | Is it Important to Remember Grammar Rules when Speaking?

On the 15th episode of Your Question, we handle the following question:

Q: Is it important to remember grammar rules when it comes to speaking?

Here are my thoughts and suggestions:

First, we need to have a basic level of grammar in order to be understood.
However, if we think too much about grammar while speaking, it can affect our spoken fluency.
There’s a balance between GRAMMAR and FLUENCY for most students.

Suggestions:
1. Don’t worry about grammar when speaking.
2. Learn to think in “function.”
3. Review the “Speaking Skills” series to help you.
