Notes From An Intermediate Speaking Dilemma

<p>What&#39;s more frustrating than speaking at intermediate level, where we stutter and stumble over words, and leave....lo o o o o ng...um....gaps in sentences because the words just won&#39;t come into our brains.</p>

<p>This week on the show, I&#39;m answering a listener question from Elisabeth who is stuck in that dilemma. She says:</p>

<blockquote>
<p>My tutor says I&#39;m very close to B2. I&#39;ve been hit with a puzzle though. (..) I have a lot of vocabulary but there seems to be a disconnect between my thoughts and my speech. (..) I stutter and pause a great deal when I speak in my target language.</p>

<p>Will this go away as I continue my speaking practice or should I be concerned? I just assumed that B2 would feel easy breezy beautiful when I talked and while I&#39;m not there yet, I can&#39;t believe I&#39;m close with all this difficulty connecting word bank to mouth.</p>
</blockquote>
