Don’t talk to me in English

Olly Richards from wrote an interesting blog post about the problem of people answering back in English instead of the language you are learning.

Strategy 1: Pretend you don’t speak English or pretend you speak it poorly.

Strategy 2: Explain to the person that you want to practise their language and ask them not to speak English.

Strategy 3: Go to a place where they don’t speak English, such as in rural areas.
