Becky: Alright, so why’s speaking the #1 weakness among most learners?
Peter: The answer is easy Becky. You get better at what you focus on. So when language learners first start....
Becky: They usually start with reading. They read online articles.
Peter: Or if they take a class, they spend 20% of their time repeating words in class...
Becky: ...and 80% of the time reading the textbook...
Peter: ...doing homework or just listening to a teacher.
Becky: So, if you spend most of your time reading instead of speaking...
Peter: You get better at reading. But, your speaking skills never grow...
Becky: Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. It’s like working out one muscle, which gets stronger...
Peter: ...and ignoring another one which stays small and weak. This is usually why speaking is a weakness for learners.
Becky: Alright, so listeners, if you want your speaking skills to improve...
Peter: ...You need to spend more of your study time on speaking. Here are 5 ways you can start right now.
Becky: Number one is obvious. Simply get a native speaking tutor to practice with.
Peter: But to improve on your own time, here’s what you can do...
Becky: Number two: Read out loud. If you’re listening to a lesson and reading along...
Peter: Read out loud. Then re-read and speed up your tempo. Do this again and again until you can speak faster.
Becky: Number three: Prepare things to say ahead of time. Most learners run out of things to say...
Peter: But, if you prepare lines ahead of time, you won’t be at a loss for words in conversations.
Becky: Listeners, you can start speaking with prepared lines from our 3 Minute Video Series...
Peter: Our Top 25 Questions Series, Survival Phrases and much more.
Becky: Number four: Shadowing. Meaning, repeat the dialogues as you hear them.
Peter: In every lesson, you learn a new conversation. So try to shadow the conversation line by line. Premium and Premium PLUS users, use Line-By-Line tool to perfect this method.
Becky: And you’ll master it in no time.
Peter: Number five: Reviewing again and again. Listeners, this is the key to perfection...
Becky: ...and it’s why we have to emphasize it. Most learners don’t review! If you review and repeat lines again and again...
Peter: ...You’ll be speaking better, faster and with more confidence.
Becky: And remember, if you want to unlock all of our effective lessons that focus on real conversations...
Peter: ...as well as our entire language learning system. Now’s the time.
