Why NATIVE speakers are BAD teachers – Refold Tutorials

Hey there, language learners! When learning a language, we often think that the best way to learn is to have a native speaker of that language teach us.

Don’t do this.

Native speakers are not necessarily the best teachers. Well, not all of them, but there is so much involved in teaching and learning a language. As a student, you need to know how and why things work, but native speakers probably aren’t even aware of those concepts or might simply say something is correct because “it sounds better that way.”

However, you should still engage in conversations with native speakers.

Just not as your primary teachers. Join in as Ben breaks down the best ways to chat with native speakers to improve your language skills – and maybe make some friends along the way.
