if you translated into english like, you'll get into trouble:
- If you translated it into english , these sentences are incorrect in english. Why? He he , of course. The grammar or structure in english is often different in your native language. Let me give you an example:
Cái đầm đen này đẹp thiệt , you try to translate it into english : The dress back is beautiful, it's wrong, you must say: The back dress is so beautiful.
Nói thì lúc nào chẳng dễ hơn làm, you try to translate it into english : Speaking is always easier than do, ố ồ... again, you get wrong sentence. You should say: said easier than done.
You see that, the english sentence is more simple, and it sounds naturally than your translated sentence
- You will take too much time to think and translate when you're in conversation. You often pause, hesitate while you're talking. You can't speak fluently
First level: Thinking in single english words
^_^ But How to think in english without translating???/
For example: when you listen a song, let think of words like:
Song, singer, girl band, boy band, music, sing, line, lyrics,......
When you watch TV, or movie, let think of words like:
Movie, dramma, film, cartoon, action movie, actress, actor, director, camera, Television, Starmovie channel, eposide, season.....
When you meet a people, think of words like:
Hair, long hair, blond hair, eyes, face, nose, mouse, lip, eyeline, beautiful, pretty, nice, gentle, thin, fat, big, tall, short.....
During the day, try to think of english words whenever you see, hear, or do something and you imagine the meaning in your head when you think of these words.
2nd level: Thinking in english sentences
For example, when you listen a song, let think of sentences.
The singer is very beautiful
Im addicted this song
I listen this song over and over
My friend sing this song very well
Or when you're watching movie, think:
The actor is so manly
He has blond hair
He is playing football.....
Try to make habit of thinking in english sentences no matter what that sentence is very simple or complicated
Just practice and develop this habit, you'll achieve at a surprise way.
Level 3: Thinking in english every time you speak your native language
