On this weekend I went out with some friends and had some beers. My perception was that I didn’t have any bad speech incidents during the evening, even under the influence of some alcohol. But I talked so much I had a sore throat on the next day. 🙂
In the past I was concerned if others will notice my fluency or not, but I realized that it’s only my own opinion about my speech that counts – if I feel I speak freely, that’s a huge success. And as we all know, speech usually only bothers us and others don’t even care if we’re fluent or not.
