Por que o conhecimento do inglês é tão ruim no Brasil?
 
03:49
:16 os fatores que contribuem ao péssimo nível do inglês no brasil 1:10 Porque o nível do inglês não vai aumentar muito no futuro. 1:36 Como que as pessoas conseguem estudar inglês por muito tempo sem poder falar 1:54 Como eu aprendi o português 2:27 Porque é mal focar na gramática 3:00 O que tem que mudar Oi tudo bem, eu Sou Josh Plotkin o Brazilian Gringo e agora vou falar porque sobre por que o nivel do ingles no Brasil é tão pessimo. Todo o mundo já sabe que o Brasil está atrasado no conhecimento do inglês, que o Brasil tem o 7 pior nível do inglês no mundo. Mas porque? Bom, tem muitos contribuem a porque o nível do inglês não e muito bom no brasil. E tem muita coisa que eu não acho relevante a este discurso. Claro que o brasil agora está começando agora ficar mais rico, que está poendo mais importância no ensino do inglês, e que só é recentemente que é importante para os brasileiros aprender inglês. Isso não é importante para este discurso. O que eu acho importante é porque no futuro o nível do inglês não vai aumentar muito, não vai melhorar. O fator que eu acho mais relevante para este discurso é que o jeito do inglês está ensinado no Brasil é muito ruim. Porque? A maioria da escolas de inglês só focam na gramática. Eu conheço (tenho) muitos que estudam inglês a muito tempo, a muitos anos, e não sabem falar porque só focaram na gramática. Para falar uma língua não é importante, a gramática não importa nada! Olha só, eu não falo português fluente (perfeitamente) mas você está me entendendo, porque eu foquei primeiro na fala, e depois estou aprendendo a gramática. E para falar uma língua primeiro você tem que ganhar a confiança de falar, e depois que você já está falando você vai aprender a gramática. Quase todas as escolas aqui eles só ensinam a gramática. E isso é muito ruim porque destrui a confiança do aluno. O aluno que sabe a gramática, ele vai saber todas as maneiras que ele está falando errado quando fala inglês. Quando ele fala alguma coisa ele vai pensar "ah isso não foi correto, eu falhei." E isso vai destruir a confiança do aluno. Então, para falar porque o brasil fala tão ruim o inglês, é isso. Porque as escolas só focam na gramática. E se o brasil realmente quer crescer e falar melhor inglês, tem que mudar como a gente ensina inglês no Brasil. E isso ai galera, eu tenho mais que o posso falar sobre este assunto, mas eu só quero falar esse ideia básica, que não é importante estudar a gramática, é mais importante falar quando você esta aprendendo o inglês. Se você concorda, por favor compartilhar este vídeo com sues amigos. E se você não concorda por favor deixa um comentário lá em baixo, eu leio tudo que vocês escrevem. Então ta, falou galera.
