This is the most important rule of Effortless Englihs System. Most schools ignore it.

“I should definitely confess that your lessons helped me a lot in improving!”
–Toussaint Zondi, France

**Rule 3:  A Story

Humberto is from Venezuela.  He moved to Canada a few years ago.  He studied English in Venezuela for many years– mostly grammar. In fact, Humberto learned English with his eyes– by reading textbooks, by studying grammar books, by remembering word lists. He thought his English was good. But when he came to Canada he was surprised and shocked– he couldn’t understand anyone!

He joined an English school in Canada.  He went to school everyday.  What did they teach him?  More textbooks, more grammar books, more word lists!

After 12 months of school, Humberto was angry and frustrated. The school cost over $10,000 for one year– but he still could not speak English.  He didn’t know what to do.

He said:
I couldn’t believe it.  After one year, I still couldn’t speak English.  I told the teacher, ‘this is a waste of time’.  I was very upset.  Thank God I found a better way.  Now I can speak English.  I understand native speakers.   I talk to Canadians every day.  I feel confident.   I can’t believe I wasted so much time with schools… and so much money too!

English Listening

“I really want to thank you very much for the great method you have given to me. It works very well.  Since I have started, I have made a huge improvement, as it becomes easy for me to write this kind of email without thinking or translating.  I work about one hour each day by listening to your lessons again and again through my mp3 device. Its simple but really terrific.”
–Frederic Achour, France

**RULE 3: The Most Important Rule–  Listen First

What is the rule that Humberto found? Simple. The rule is listening.

Listening, listening, listening.

You must listen to UNDERSTANDABLE English.  You must listen to English EVERYDAY. Don’t read textbooks. Listen to English.

Its simple.  That is the key to your English success.  Stop reading textbooks.  Start listening everyday.

Hiroshi Ichikawa of Japan writes:

“Hi, Ever since I joined,  I have been listening to every lesson I downloaded into my MP3 player for 5-6 hours a day. Whenever my boss is not around, I put a headphone on and start listening to them!”

**Learn With Your Ears, Not Your Eyes

In most schools, you learn English with your eyes.  You read textbooks. You study grammar rules.

Effortless English is a listening system.  You learn English with your ears, not your eyes.  You listen 1-3 hours every day. Your speaking improves quickly.  You speak English easily– just like Humberto.

Spend most of your study time listening- that is the key to great speaking.

“I bought your English lessons a month ago. They are really excellent and not only me but all my family enjoys them (wife & kids). My English is improving very quickly! I keep persuading all my friends to get the lessons.”
–Marek Wojtaszec, Poland

“No word seems to be enough to explain to you my happiness when I received these lessons.” 
–Antoine Jean Penel, France

Rule 2:  A Story From Angelina

My name is Angelina and I’m a student from Paraguay.  When I started learning with A.J., I couldn’t speak any English.  I had studied English grammar many years, but I couldn’t speak.

The first day with A.J.’s system I thought I would study grammar.  However, he surprised me because he never taught grammar rules. Instead, he told a story.  He told it many times, in a strange way. He constantly asked questions, and I answered the questions.  The questions were super-easy. Honestly, I was a little confused.  I thought he was kind of a crazy teacher 🙂  I thought I needed to learn more grammar.

I continued with Effortless English and then, after only two weeks, something amazing happened.  My English speaking improved!  My friends asked me, ‘How are you improving so quickly?’

I realized that A.J. was quite clever, and the stories and questions and articles were teaching me to speak English, without studying grammar rules.  Wow!

Angelina is a great student.  She learned extra fast because she listened to our lessons 5 hours a day. However, you can improve with just one hour a day. You can get the same results… but you must follow Rule 2.

“I began the lessons 5 months ago. I work with General Electric as a contractor. Well, I went to Atlanta, GA, USA last November (a whole month!) for training purposes. I was very surprised because I realized that the method works. I felt confident and relaxed all the time. During the meetings I could understand 90% of the conversation. When I spoke, the words came out automatically.”
–Vicente Gonzalez, Mexico

RULE 2: Don’t Study Grammar

Angelina quickly improved speaking– when she stopped studying grammar.  This is your second rule.

Stop studying grammar.
Stop studying grammar.

Right now.  Stop.  Put away your grammar books and textbooks.  Grammar rules teach you to think about English, you want to speak automatically– without thinking!

With our Effortless English system, you learn English without grammar study.  Your speaking improves quickly.  You succeed.  You speak English naturally. So Rule 2 is:  Don’t Study Grammar!


“Before I knew you I looked for a lot programs and courses to improve my English, especially in speaking, but they didn’t work. It was a waste of time and money. From now I am insisting on your lessons and am getting better!”
–Ha Nguyen, Vietnam

Rule 1: Study and Review Phrases

Thanks very much! I am studying English according to your method. I will introduce your lessons to my friends!
–Fred Zhao

Imagine speaking English automatically… without thinking. The words come out of your mouth easily, and fast.   You understand instantly.

To do this, you must change the way you study English.  One easy thing to do is to stop studying English words. What?
Stop studying English words.

English Words

That’s right, do not memorize words.  Native speakers do not learn English by remembering single words.  Native speakers learn phrases. Phrases are GROUPS of words that naturally go together.   In fact, when you learn phrases you learn both vocabulary and grammar– easily and automatically.

“I am so proud of you Mr Hoge!!!!  You are an excellent teacher with power and infectiousness ….you helped me improve my accent !!!!!  Thank You For All!!”
–Elena Mwrou

**Learn 4x Faster
Research by Dr. James Asher proves that learning with phrases is 4-5 times faster than studying individual words.  4-5 Times Faster.

Also, students who learn phrases have much better grammar.

***RULE 1:  Always Study and Review Phrases, Not Individual Words

Never study a single, individual word.  Never.

When you find a new word, always write down The Phrase it is in.  Always.  When you review, always review all of the phrase,.. not just the word.

Watch The Rule 1 Video:

Collect phrases.
Your speaking and grammar will improve 4-5 times faster.  Always write the complete phrase.
Never again study a single word.   Never write a single word in your notebook,

Learn Phrases Only.
Have a great day!
