Chigusa: Alright Peter, let’s talk about speaking skills… For someone that just signed up… and they want to start speaking from their first lesson… How do they start?
Peter: That’s a great question, Chigusa. First things first, listeners, make sure you’re taking the lessons and following our recommended learning pathway.
Chigusa: Right. If you want to start speaking the language…
Peter: ...then you’ll need to first hear the language…
Chigusa: And our lessons do just that: they expose you to practical everyday, conversations
Peter: So, there are 6 things you can do…
Chigusa: By the way, you can apply these tactics whether you’re a beginner or an advanced learner.
Peter: The first one is... practice shadowing.
Chigusa: For anyone new that doesn’t know… Peter, what’s shadowing?
Peter: Shadowing is a very effective learning tactic and it’s… where you just repeat what someone else says.
Chigusa: So, as you’re taking our lessons, listen to the lesson conversation and repeat out loud.
Peter: That’s it. You can do this whether you’re a beginner or an advanced learner.
Chigusa: You can also do this with TV shows but it might be hard if you’re a beginner. They speak fast.
Peter: But with our lessons, you can easily follow along and repeat.
Chigusa: Second, save the lesson conversations.
Peter: Let’s say you did a lesson on how to introduce yourself… you’d want to remember that conversation, right?
Chigusa: Right. If I can save that conversation and replay it over and over like a song, I’d know those lines by heart. Kind of like when you’re listening to a song over and over.
Peter: Well, you CAN do that. Listeners, when you finish a lesson… If you want to hold on to the conversation, then download the conversation audio track. That way, you can listen to just the native speech… without translations... and review and shadow it as much as you want.
Chigusa: And if you have 30 or 40 conversations... that you listen to over and over..
Peter: ..then that’s 30 or 40 conversations you have memorized...in your brain…
Chigusa: ...that you can use to speak more of your target language.
Peter: Number three: Set a specific goal and practice regularly.
Chigusa: The reason why most learners aren't good with speaking is because… they don’t put much time into it.
Peter: So, here’s what you can do. Make it a goal to practice every day… for say 5 minutes. Spend 5 minutes on shadowing the conversation after the lesson.
Chigusa: Peter, why 5 minutes?
Peter: I think because 5 minutes is easy to do. It could be 2 minutes, 3 minutes or 10 minutes… whatever you want. But 5 or less is a nice number because you don’t want to overwhelm yourself. The point is to make it easy to do. Make it a part of your routine.
Chigusa: Do you do this too?
Peter: Truthfully, whenever I can. So I get about 2 to 4 days a week. Anytime I’m learning… I make sure to set aside a little time to do output… where I’m actually speaking and practicing the language. Again, If you’re not practicing, it’s not as effective learning. Input, or reading or listening alone…this is what we call receptive... is only half of the equation. You need to do output too. Productive. You need to produce something. So listeners, make it a rule for yourself: do 5 minutes of speaking practice every day… that productive practice. And you know, when I said that truthfully before.. If I can’t get to the computer and actually do the shadowing or listen, what I’ll do is talk to myself. So I am, not always on the site. But that 5 minutes is critical every single day.
Chigusa: If you’re not practicing, you’re not really learning… that’s a very good line! Okay, number four: Record Yourself Speaking the Language.
Peter: Recording yourself is a powerful tactic. A lot of us don’t know what we sound like… until we hear ourselves.
Chigusa: Yeah, and then it's like “wait, do i really talk like that?”
Peter: It’s kind of horrifying to hear your voice for the first time. You’ll notice your pauses, your umms, where you get stuck… and you then know what you need to fix. I think a lot of us in our heads think we sound like professional emcees and then you hear yourself, “you know I don’t really sound like that.”
Chigusa: Listeners, you can also record and compare yourself with native speakers...
Peter: ...and this is where that comparison or feedback comes in. If you record yourself and listen and compare, you’re understanding how close you’re getting. And with the voice recording tool inside our lessons. You can hear how a native speaker says a line… versus how you say it. And you can use that to improve your speaking and pronunciation.
Chigusa: Okay, what’s number 5?
Peter: Number 5 is… Learn More Words, Phrases and Grammar Rules.
Chigusa: Simply put, if you want to speak more and express yourself in more ways..
Peter: ...then you’ll need to know more words and grammar rules.
Chigusa: So, Peter, how would you do this? It sounds like a lot of work.
Peter: The easiest thing to do is… just stick with the lessons and follow our learning pathway. You naturally learn more and more words and grammar rules with every lesson. The longer you stick with it, the more words and rules you’ll pick up…
Chigusa: ...and you’ll speak more and more of your target language.
Peter: In addition, with these quizzes inside of our recommended pathway, we’re testing you to see if you really know the work. And if you don’t, you have the chance to go back and review, or you might realize that you’re progressing much faster than you thought.
Peter: And finally, number 6: Get feedback from native speakers.
Chigusa: Yes, one of the best ways to improve… is to get feedback from natives. Otherwise, how do you know if you’re any good?
Peter: With our premium plus plan, you get your own teacher… who will give you feedback.
Chigusa: You can record yourself speaking, send them the recording…
Peter: ...and they’ll tell you what to fix.
Chigusa: I think you can also ask a friend for feedback. But it could be tough. If they want to be nice to you, they’ll say you’re good enough...even if you made a mistake.
Peter; That’s a great point, Chigusa. I mean, in any language I learned, I rarely got the tough critical feedback I needed from friends. I think this is where you’d want a teacher… someone you pay to give you really honest feedback... whose job is to make you improve… and tell you how much further you have to go.
Chigusa: Exactly. Listeners, if you listened this far, here’s a bonus: if you want our PDF conversation cheat sheets… that’ll get you speaking even more of the language..
Peter: Leave us a comment in the comment’s section of this Sunday News…

Hello Marilu Graciela,


Welcome to our site! To get started with our system, it is first of all recommended that you check out our Help Center page where you will find plenty of useful information on how to start learning on our site, what the dashboard is for, how you can see your account settings, what subscription options there are, what Free Lifetime Account means exactly, and many more. You can find our Help Center page at: https://www.EnglishClass101.com/helpcenter.

Probably the most importantat this strage is to keep in mind though is that we have a Lesson Library (available on top of the site) where you can browse from hundreds of available lessons. You might experience that the vocabulary is occasionally a bit too advanced or the audio is a bit too fast. In such cases, please make sure that you have a solid foundation of the alphabet and pronunciation (you can find these lessons in the Lesson Library too) and that you completed all the previous lessons in that same series\ leading up to the current lesson.

Hope this helps. Feel free to contact us again if you have any further questions or remark.


Kind regards,

Levente

Hello Biman Kumar Saha Roy,


Lesson PDFs are currently available on our website for our audio and video lessons. For these lessons, you can download PDFs by clicking on the 'Download PDFs' button below the title which is the third round-shaped button there. In most cases, we have downloadable PDFs, available for our premium members, which include Lesson Notes and Lesson Transcript. Please note however, that there are certain specific series types that do not include Lesson Notes on purpose. Particularly, such are the advanced audio series which do not intend to teach new skills but rather serve as a rehersal/practice of what you have already learned. Furthermore, we provide some lessons with eBooks (available in the same location), or Cheat Sheets (these can be downloaded by clicking in the link in the pinned comment above).

Hope this helps. Let us know if you have any questions or feedback!


Kind regards,

Levente
