A NEW Way to Learn English!

When you learn a new language it's the same as learning new software, learning a sport or learning to play a musical instrument. The BEST way is to LEARN BY DOING. Learning a language is the same: Learn by doing!

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

It's actually very simple, but you've never had an efficient method to do it. It's simply a matter of physical practice. And all you need is a 'tool' and good material to help you practice.

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

Try this basic English check to see if there are a few things your previous teachers never told you! ;)

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.

Can you catch everything that's said?

Watching movies is a great way to improve your English if you pay attention and make an effort to hear the English and don't simply read the subtitles.

Watch this short clip and concentrate on trying to catch exactly what is said. Then, listen to each expression and try and type it out. Use the slowed down version if you need to.

Also, use the individual audio buttons to practice matching your pronunciation with theirs.

When the video clips are set to match the level of the student, this is an extremely effective method for learning English. And it's FUN!!

Wha'chou talkin' about?

What you hear is often nothing at all like what you learned at school.

Wha'chou = What are you.. / What do you.. / What did you..

There are many other such cases which aren't difficult to learn, but unless they're pointed out, students can spend a VERY long time being confused.

It's also pronounced other ways, depending on the individual. These are actually more common.

Waddya... = What do you... / What are you...
Wa'dja... = What do you.. / What did you...

How to understand native English speakers:

If you're having lunch with a native English speaker, you'll likely hear them ask, as you're looking through the menu:
"Waddya gonna have?" (What are you going to have?)

And then after lunch, they'll likely ask:
"Waddya wanna do now?" (What do you want to do now?)

Or how about this one when you go to your friend's house:
"Dya wan' sa'm ta drink?" (Do you want something to drink?)

Starting to get the picture? And you also have to stop thinking in your own language. Russian speakers commonly say: "Дай мне...".
If you say "Give me..." in English, it's pretty rude.

I first stumbled onto this situation when I was in Crimea with friends and hearing "Дай мне..." many, many times a day, and then one girl said "Дай мне ключ". I laughed to myself thinking that we'd never say that in English and what we would always, always, always say in this situation is:
"Have you got the key?"

Of course we mean, "Give me the key" but we would never say that. It's not a question. We know they have the key and we want them to give it to us, but what we say is: "Have you got the key?"

The next summer when I was in Kyiv staying with a friend, he gave me a cup of coffee one morning and I later said: "Have you got a spoon?"

Of course he has a spoon! He's standing in his kitchen. Of course he has a spoon in his kitchen and I'm not really asking that. I need a spoon for the sugar and I automatically say: "Have you got a spoon?"

What I mean is "Give me a spoon." but what I say is "Have you got a spoon?"

Wouldn't you like a program that helped you learn all these details and helped you make them 'automatic'?

How do I get started fixing my English?

If you're serious about fixing your English, we can help. And it will literally be an 'investment'. Do you know the difference between 'buying something' and 'investing in something'?

If you buy a new iPhone, then you pay your money and get the product. If you buy stocks in Apple, then you've invested in the company and will hopefully make a profit on that investment. Back in 2001, 2002 or 2003 did you buy an Apple computer and love it? Did you invest in Apple? Its share price was around $7-10. In 2003 or 2004 did you buy an iPod? Did you invest in Apple? If you had invested in Apple, then your iPod was not only FREE but you made a LOT of money! By the end of 2005, the share price was up from $10 to $80. The same stock hit a high of $700 per share in 2012. That's a very good return on your investment. :)

When you take an English course, you pay for the course and are investing in yourself. With better English skills, you can get a better job and earn more money. So again, the course is essentially FREE and you make a LOT of money. But what if you were also given shares in the company where you took the English course? What if you got shares in say Speak Up when they were just starting in Ukraine? Of course, you would have a made a LOT of money on those shares.

But many websites offer English for FREE!

Of course there are! And are they doing it because they're nice people and want to help you and everyone else? Maybe, but it's also a business and they are making money from it. Are Facebook and Vkontakte free? Of course! Are they businesses that are worth a LOT of money? Of course they are!!

Did you know that your value, the value of each active member at Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc is about $100. You get to be a 'free member' and investors are currently paying $100 per free member in order to share in the profits of the business.

We could do the same, but we don't want to. We don't just want to help you learn English, we want you to be a part of the business and make money along with the rest of us. We want you to help us grow, and together, we all benefit. Pretty simple, right?

So how much is this 'investment'?

The price for a basic membership is just $20. Now that's a bargain for the material alone, let alone the investment. As a member, you will share in the business revenue, and by introducing new members you can earn hundreds and even thousands of dollars. (More on member rewards.)

Perhaps the ideal solution for most language learners is our Active Montly Memberhsip at just $10 per month. With this membership, you get full access to all language learning material and interactive learning material. Whenever you're having trouble or you have some questions simply email any question and get it answered.

For those of you who really want to maximize your learning, our Premium Membership for $50 per month is ideal. (membership details)

All memberships also come with the opportunity to share in the business revenue and earn significant income by introducing others. (More on member rewards.)
