Great read to start my day. Thank you! I am a high-intermediate to advanced level English learner. I have been studying English for the last 21 months every day and for the last 8 months I have been using it every day too besides studying it, writing emails, speaking to my wife a non-native English speaker , rarely speaking to a native English speakers maybe twice a month , surfing the web in English and above all watching series and movies in English without subtitles every day at night, at least 1 hour. I also realized that even in my best days I translate a lot I mean that first I think in Spanish and than I say it in English.

Thanks for the worth advise you mentioned. In fact, to reach a successful result it is wise to provide more fluency practice to our teaching rather than focus on accuracy. Many experienced teachers and less experienced ones make successful effort to feed their student especially with grammatical structures unfortunately, learners find difficulties in expressing themselves accurately with the language acquired.
Most of them suffer from this lack. In fluency not only we always focus on knowledge and skill requirements as topic related vocabulary and structure. Chunks and communicative skills are advised; but also the control of pronunciation, intonation, negotiation of understanding and use of fillers and awareness of discourse are accurate.

In my modest point of view encouraging students to use fluency with slight delayed assessments may well lead to an acceptable accurate language. Moreover, it gives to learners an enthusiastic desire to continue developing their language skilfulness. Otherwise learners find difficulties in practising speaking since they face lack of vocabulary, afraid of making mistakes in pronunciation, misunderstanding tasks or boring ones and shyness.
In addition, the interferences with mother tongue. Likewise, less practice of oral part of the language and the emphasis rather on accuracy than fluency because of the testing system based on written tasks. I especially like the statement that fluency and accuracy are not the same. In my opinion, for many adult learners, fluency should be the priority. Accuracy given a good environment will naturally follow. Great piece, Jason!
It seems to me that accuracy can follow fluency or vice versa; the key is in the experience and environment, not to mention the personality of the learner. I have to agree most with the statement of Vicki, I really feel that motivation is the number 1 needed element to be fluent in a foreign language. Actually, without motivation, there is no way that one can become fluent in a foreign language. Motivation is number 1, indeed! The question is, what leads a learner to be and remain motivated…then we get into what many of the others are saying, I think.
