A NEW Way to Learn English!
It's NOT about learning rules and grammar, or remembering not to make mistakes. It's all about training yourself to 'automatically' speak Engish correctly, like a native.
Simply getting lots of 'practice' and not being afraid to make mistakes, or going to live in the country is also NOT an effective solution. The key is to train yourself properly in the first place so you don't make mistakes.
Our job is to provide you with everything you need to learn English well. Your job is to use it and enjoy the results.
How to improve your speaking
Well, now you have what you need. With our 'interactive text' or 'hypertext' you can now read, listen and practice speaking, and you're in complete control. Repeat a phrase or sentence as often as you like.
And it's very useful to try speaking like a native speaker. For example, you can probably say "What do you want to do?", no problem, right? But when we say it, it sounds like "Waddya wanna do?". Now, with our 'active text', you can click on a phrase and practice it as much as you like.
Here's another classic:
"Do you want something to drink?" versus "Dya wan' sa'm ta drink?"
Please try out some of our sample material listed on the right.
Check your English
Okay, you already know you need help fixing your English, and perhaps you've already figured out that there's nothing available on the internet, anywhere, that can really help you fix your English in a systematic and effective way.
We can. I know that's a bold statement but stick around and I'll show you why and how.
The secret is not just speaking and listening to as much English as possible, like many programs suggest. That's like thinking playing a lot of football (soccer) will make you a great player. It won't. You have to do the drills to build up your skills.
There's no language program that I've ever found that simply focuses on building up your physical skills in a step-by-step manner.
As you saw in the preceding slideshow, in one week a beginner student had 'trained' himself to automatically say "listening to". He couldn't see his mistake consciously yet said it perfectly without thinking.
That's the key. There's no need to study phrasal verbs. What's needed is a program that 'trains' you to speak and write them correctly without needing to think at all. That's what our program does.
Many native Russian speakers, Indonesians and others will commonly say: I'm engineer. or I'm student.. It's the most basic mistake possible and is a direct result of the way English is learned/taught. Including 'a', 'an' and 'the' MUST be 'automatic' otherwise you'll forget.
Even advanced learners need practice with this. Here's an excellent exercise for practicing various aspects that need to become 'automatic'. Empress Orchid
It's actually quite simple to avoid this problem from the very beginning. There's no point in learning 'tree', 'book', 'table', etc. Simple picture books need to write 'a tree', 'a book', 'an umbrella', and 'the sun', 'the moon'. They're 'matched pairs', much like 'listening to'.
Next, when replying to the question, "What's this?", the most important 'skill' to master, is the ability to say: 'itsa'. It's a tree. It's a book. It's a table.
It's extremely simple, and all kids (and adults) will be able to do it within seconds and before long it becomes 'automatic'.
There are many key points that need to be 'mastered' from the very beginning, and I've yet to see a program that teaches them. Thankfully they can be applied later and mastered without too much difficulty.
It is so, so cool seeing how these methods work with kids. It really is amazing. You literally see them improving every class. And once they've mastered something, it's theirs for life because it's been 'physically learned'.
Do you have trouble understanding native speakers because they speak too quickly and use too much slang? That's actually not the key problem. Have a look at this Harry Potter video and see how you make out with the little exercise.
