Mistakes are part and parcel of life. Mistakes make us rich with experience; they help us learn a new thing or a hobby.
Speaking a second language is undeniably a difficult task. At the same time, it is not an impossible dream to achieve. Still it has been found that every time a non-native speaker decides to gain a new language skill, s/he expects to get proficient in the language right from the day one. They just don’t want to commit any mistake however; alien they are to the language. There are learners who are afraid to say the wrong thing, which if you ask any expert, is a wrong approach. It is because language is a medium of conversation between two people- a medium of conveying thoughts and emotions to the other person. In the process of gaining proficiency in the language, learners fail to understand that making mistakes is the only way to achieve fluency in English.

Why do people fear making mistakes? Well, to save an embarrassment, to save a face in a gathering. This is primarily what we could think of. Now think about a scenario where you will be able to embrace your mistake with an open heart? The next moment you’ll likely to feel the connection with fellow learners since we all make mistakes. Importantly, making mistakes is vital to the scientific process as it always lead to the path of learning.
Mistake is something we all make from time to time. Since it is unintentional in nature, one mustn’t associate it with feeling like a self-critic in the grip of emotions. As a matter of fact, mistakes can really have a positive impact. Ever thought why parents encourage their kids even if they have pronounced certain words wrongly. This kind of encouragement generally goes a long way to make sure that the kid keeps on trying till s/he gets it right. Thus, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that making a mistake is all about educating yourself for the future.
Similarly learning a language is like charting an unknown territory. In the process, you will be blown off the course, run over by a different explanation and importantly, you will unintentionally make a mistake, which is not wrong at all. So when it comes to English language, one must understand that regular practice is the key to gain fluency in the language rather than refraining from not speaking it at all due to fear of becoming a laughing stock.

Mistake is one of the major ingredients of a learning process.
