Becky: Alright, so why’s speaking the #1 weakness for most learners?
Peter: The answer is easy Becky. You get better at what you focus on.
Becky: So when people first start learning a language...
Peter: How do you think they start?
Becky: Hmm. They usually start with reading. They read online articles.
Peter: Exactly. I’d say 90% of all learners start there. Or if you take your first class...
Becky: ...you probably spend most of your time reading the textbook, doing homework...
Peter: ...and maybe 30 minutes a week just repeating words in a class.
Becky: So, if you spend most of your time reading instead of speaking...
Peter: You get better at reading. But, your speaking skills won’t grow...
Becky: Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. It’s like working out one muscle, which gets stronger...
Peter: ...and ignoring other ones which stay small and weak. This is 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 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: Now, a common issue is... most people don’t have access to teachers or native speakers, but...
Becky: ...with our Premium PLUS, you get your very own on-site teacher .
Peter: You can practice speaking by recording yourself and having them review it.
Becky: One popular tactic is to talk about your day. So, you’d send 3 recordings...
Peter: ...one in the morning, one in the afternoon, and one at night...
Becky: Your teacher reviews it and then gives you corrections and feedback.
Peter: Number two: Read out loud.
Becky: So, if you’re listening to a lesson and reading along...
Peter: Read out loud. Then re-read and speed up your tempo. Why?
Becky: First, if you’re reading out loud, you’re essentially practicing your speaking skills.
Peter: Second, by increasing your speed, you’ll also be able to talk faster and with confidence.
Becky: Do this again and again until you can speak faster.
Peter: Number three: Prepare things to say ahead of time.
Becky: Most learners, especially beginners, 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.
Becky: So try to shadow the conversation line by line.
Peter: 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.
