We want you to think about something today:  You have studied English for more than 4 years-  why do you still have trouble understanding native speakers?

Nothing is wrong with you.  Something is wrong with the schools you went to, and the textbooks you used.  English textbooks and audio tapes are horrible.

You never learned real conversational English.  You never learned casual English- the kind of English we use in normal conversations. You learned TEXTBOOK English.

“Your teaching is excellent! I´m very grateful to you. Thank you!”
Milan Hodac, Czech Republic

**How To Understand Native Speakers
Megdelio studied English for 5 years in Venezuela.  Teachers said he was an advanced student.  When he came to the USA he felt good. He was excited to meet Americans. He was ready.  He wrote:

One day I tried to talk to an American woman and everything changed.  The woman started talking– and I couldn’t understand her.  Not at all! Her pronunciation was totally different than the textbook tapes and CDs I listened to.  She used idioms, slang, and many casual phrases. I was totally confused.  That’s when I realized I needed to learn real English!

**You Must Learn Casual Conversational English
We taught Megdelio to learn with real English conversations– learning the English we use everyday in conversations, books, movies, TV shows, comic books, audio books, articles, newspapers, magazines, and podcasts.

**Stop Learning Textbook English

If you want to understand native speakers, you must stop learning English from textbook tapes and CDs. To learn real English, you must listen to real English conversations… not to actors reading.  You listen to native speakers speaking real English.  You must study real conversations.

Listen only to English conversations

How do you learn casual English? It’s easy.  Stop using textbooks.  Instead, listen only to English conversations, movies, TV shows, audio books,  audio articles, stories, and talk radio shows.  Use real English conversations.

After 6 months of real English, Megdelio could speak easily.  He could understand English from real native speakers.   You will too.

“I’m very glad to get your Lessons. I was probably like many of your students – good at tests but hopeless at speaking. I wish I had known your method earlier!”
–Barbara Sitko

**RULE 6:  Only Use Real English Conversations & Materials

You learn casual conversational English if you want to understand native speakers and speak easily.  Use real conversations, magazines, audio articles, TV shows, movies, radio talk shows, and audio books.

Learn Real English, Not Textbook English

We will teach you a way to learn grammar naturally.  Use this method and your grammar will improve automatically.  You will automatically use the correct verb tense.  You won’t think.  You won’t try.

Learn English Grammar

**Rule 5: A Story

Miyuki did very well on grammar tests.  She knew all of the grammar rules.  She knew English verbs.

But Miyuki had a problem.  She couldn’t USE the grammar in a real conversation.   She could explain the past tense, but when speaking, she would say “Yesterday I GO to school”.
Miyuki was confused.  How could her grammar tests be so good, but her speaking so bad?

Miyuki said:

Before your lessons, I knew all the grammar rules, but I couldn’t speak correctly.  I couldn’t feel English grammar. After using point of view stories, I feel it and use it correctly. Now my grammar is great when I speak.  I never think about it, I just automatically use correct grammar.  Thank you!

Miyuki learned this grammar naturally.  She never studied grammar rules.  How did she do it?

First she listened to a short story in the present tense. She listened to it everyday.

Then, she listened to the exact SAME story– but this time it started with “10 years ago….”   She learned to “feel” the past tense by listening to this story.

Next, we gave her the exact same story.  This time, it started with “Since 2004…”   Miyuki learned to FEEL the perfect tenses by listening to this story.

Finally, we gave her the exact same story… beginning with “Next year”.   She learned to FEEL the future tense simply by listening to this story.

“Thanks A Lot.  I Can’t Believe I Found The Solution To My Problems.  Thanks From The Bottom Of My Heart!”
–Eman Awad

***RULE 5: Use Point Of View Mini-Stories

We call these stories “Point Of View Mini-Stories”.  They are the most powerful way to learn and use English grammar automatically.

Use Point of View Stories for Automatic Grammar
Use Point of View Stories for Automatic Grammar

You must learn grammar by listening to real English.  The best way is to listen to stories… told in different times (points of  view):  Past, Perfect, Present, Future.

How do you do this?  Easy!  Find a story or article in the present tense.  Then ask your native speaker tutor to write it again in the Past, with Perfect tenses, and in the Future.  Finally, ask him to read and record these stories for you.

Then you can listen to stories with many different kinds of grammar.  You don’t need to know the grammar rules.  Just listen to the Point of View stories and you will improve grammar automatically!

You can also find Point of View lessons and use them to learn grammar automatically. It is powerful.  It is simple.  It is successful. You will succeedYou will use correct grammar naturally and automatically.

This is the secret to English grammar.

“Hi.  I want to tell you that I really really benefited from your lessons. Everyday I meet my American teacher and I can really communicate with him.  I really don’t know how to thank you!!!!”

Rule 4: Slow, Deep Learning Is Best

“I want to thank YOU for the excellent work you are doing.  I think your lessons are fantastic!”
–Isa Jata, Albania.

**Rule 4:  A Story
Hyun, a student from Korea, said:

I’m a very serious student.  When studying English in Korea, I memorized 50,000 English words for a big test.  Fifty Thousand!  My problem was– I couldn’t USE them.  I could pass an English test.  But I could not understand native speakers.”

With the Effortless English system, I learned to instantly understand English. I learned how to automatically use vocabulary.  After 6 months, I could speak easily. I didn’t need to think.
Thanks so much!

**RULE 4:  Slow, Deep Learning Is Best

Hyun learned a lot of words in a short time.  Her learning was short and shallow.  That’s why she quickly forgot the words.  That’s why she could not use them. The secret to speaking easily is to learn every word & phrase DEEPLY.

Its not enough to know a definition.  Its not enough to remember for a test. You must put the word deep into your brain. To speak English easily, you must repeat each lesson many times.

You must learn English deeply.

Learn deeply, speak easily.
Learn deeply, speak easily.

How do you learn deeply?  Easy–  just repeat all lessons or listening many times.  For example, if you have an audio book, listen to the first chapter 30 times before you go to the second chapter.  You could listen to the first chapter 3 times each day, for 10 days.

“My English is now much improved because of you, and also my understanding of native speakers is much better than before.  So I would like to say thank you very very much!”
–Mao Sokha
