Hi, Kelly I will also be nervous when I have to speak in front of people, and I also like art. I agree that you said everyone have something that they are good at.
Kelly, when I was younger I was also very afraid to speak. But now I’m more confident and like it.
Kelly, I like how you used a mountain to describe your feeling about speaking, Also I like the way you grouped people into three groups and stating that you belong to the third group. You might think I have no problem speaking in front of people (as you mentioned your friends) but I am actually scared of speaking, sometimes even in front of friends just like you are. So like the way you said, we need to risk it.
I strongly agree with your opinion, my first language age Is not English too, and this i year is my second year in international schoool, and I agree with every sentenced u said in your writing. I worry about my pronunciation a lot, speaking loudly, grammar and such as like that. Hope someday we can feel confident of speaking in our lives. And practice is the only one way, so just speak a lot. Even speak with your friends n English.
I liked how you described your emotions when you speak in front of people as climbing mountain. And I loved when you said that you’re concerned of speaking to people because what you said cannot be erased. As a person like you whose first language is not English, me too sometimes felt like you, being afraid of making mistakes, but I’m trying not to. Thanks for sharing your feelings honestly and there must be the time.
Hi Kelly, I’m Kevin.
I liked your strong voice when you were talking.that was awsome! I don’t have much strong emotions, but you have it, so that’s good. I think you are good at speaking in front of people. Really, it was not bad. Just don’t be nervous when you’re talking. Than you will be a good speaker in front of the people!
Kelly, as a shy kid who had to fight the shyness each day when I was younger – I appreciate this piece. You captured the challenge of overcoming this anxiety so eloquently. Thank you for your fearlessness in sharing your story.
I agree with your opinion, I also think you need more confidences. You knew that I was just like you before, then I tried my best and I could spoke in front of people loudly. I am sure you can do it as well. Although speaking to others can’t be erased, don’t be afraid of making mistakes. If you need someones help, I can help you. Be stronger. Thanks for sharing.. but in the future don’t let me do this again. HHH
I like how you show the problem (public speaking) and then explained how you work to overcome that. I find it interesting that you don’t like speaking when you’re not prepared, but also just don’t like speaking in front of large groups.
I like how you used a mountain to explain how hard it is to speak. Don’t worry Kelly, we won’t ever laugh at you, we love it when you speak. Your emotions were strong in your piece. Before I used to be a shy kid too, speaking in front of the class used to be a challenge for me. Now I’m more comfortable speaking. Thanks for sharing
