This storyboard does not have a description.
"Your teacher called and said that you seem to have trouble speaking in class. Do you want to talk about why?"
"I don't want the kids to make fun of my English. When I think about my grammar before I speak, I lose my train of thought."
I can't focus on what I want to say and how to say it at the same time.
"Oh Honey, you are overthinking it to the point where it is causing you to struggle when communicating."
"Tomorrow at school, why don't you try to communicate with out thinking about grammar and see how it goes. Lets just worry about the rules of the language when writing for now."
"Okay, but I hope the kids don't make fun of me."
"Yes, I had an easier time talking to my peers and answering questions in class. I actually felt like my grammar improved because I wasn't over thinking it."
"How did it go at school today? Was it easier to communicate when you don't think about the grammar?"
