Marianna is teaching wrongly. In a competitive world, just being able to communicate through low-level English is not enough. The person who can talk like a native speaker will get the job over someone who is fluent but has low-level English. I understand why she is talking about this but encouraging people to become fluent before they've acquired enough language may make the person fluent and comfortable very quickly but you are permanently making them speak poor English forever. These people are usually very extravert and have no fear about making mistakes. However, follow them up a few years later and they are still speaking at a very low level.
This is fine if they want to just use English for social communication - make English speaking friends etc - but it's not enough for a work environment.
So Marianna should understand why people are not learning the way she thinks they should learn. There are many different reasons people learn English and there are many different learning styles out there too. Just as many as there are different types of personalities and cultures.
Different people gravitate towards different styles of learning, depending on their personality.
All true, but we need to say it more! I enjoy sharing my experience. Anyone can do anything!
you aren't human beings madam you are master mind just god.

.I never went to a kind of course or program for learn english. The education of my country isn't so good. I had to hearing music and learn words at dictionary english. Now I speak on intermediate level english ,I am in a course about it and is great. I'm learning a lot every day quickly.

Exactly Madam! How to get rid of it. While speaking how to focus on the speaker instead of Thinking in mind how to respond.

bruh I'm a Brit and I've been learning German at school for five years (I have my last exam on Monday), I did an exchange trip, have done my fair share of private learning, Duolingo, ect, but recently instead of playing on NA servers for Overwatch, I decided to switch back to EU with my game language set to German. Constantly being immersed in it and not having English translations and hearing the characters speak in German has made me so much more confident and fluent than all that traditional learning. No one gets to see what language you have your game set to online, but if you want to chat in match chat in English, you can. It has really helped me feel like I can express myself in German like I can in English.

tl;dr: set game language to target language and now I'm so much more confident.

Exactly right. Very often I don’t remember what I said after I speak to a native English speaker.

Is she talking about English from England?
What a load of absolute BS. Shyness has NOTHING to do with having a low speaking level in a language. There are many, many shy people who understand and speak their native language at an expert level. When are people going to stop listening to people trying to provide an answer (usually for financial gain) as to why people fail to learn languages. There's only one reason why and that's lack of exposure. It's a simple as that.

How to triple your memory by using Learning a language? Speak it like 2 days ago   16:19

Do you recall studying for your exams? You probably do. But do you remember how you studied, how you memorized French words or the year of the American civil war? Now, that’s probably harder. As a teenager, Ricardo Lieuw On was packing groceries when he knew what he wanted to study: he wanted to learn about learning. He picked up a study in psychology and learned how to reduce his learning time from 3 hours to 1 hour on the same piece of content. He gained the same knowledge in 200% less time. And specially for TEDxHaarlem, he shares the secret of his technique.
