A Few Tips To Improve Your English

It’s the first week of the new year and for many of us, it’s time to make some new goals or resolutions as we enter this new period. I like to think of January as a fresh start where there are lots of possibilities.

So my question to you is- What are your English goals for this year? Are you ready to make some changes?

Like the money and diet and health goals that many of us make each year, improving the way you speak English can really improve your life.

Have you ever thought about how better communication skills can earn you more money, make you more friends, keep you happier? Weird, huh?

Well, it’s true. Improving your communication skills, even in your native language, can give you an advantage in your life. Just think what you could do with better English.

Here are a few tips for improving your English…

1. Read

Make sure you are reading a variety of things in English. While reading doesn’t help your pronunciation, it does help almost everything else.

Reading will allow you to experience vocabulary and grammar in a real way and give you the time to see it and think about it. I recommend that you read a mixture of things. You could try a novel, a newspaper, a business magazine, a health magazine, a textbook, or even a children’s book.

Read a little from one or more sources everyday. People who read a lot get a deeper understanding of English than those who don’t.

2. Listen

Listen to English through TV, DVD’s, radio, podcasts, and audio books. As with reading, you need to hear a variety of English to really be able to comprehend all that is going on in life.

This is especially important if you don’t live in an English-speaking environment.

3. Practice

Try out new vocabulary. Many people feel that they have a very limited vocabulary and find themselves saying the same things again and again.

I recommend that you pick up new words, phrases, and common sayings from the books and audios that hopefully you are using everyday.

Write a couple of these words or phrases down in a special notebook everyday and challenge yourself to use them at least once or twice that day.

Usage is the key! Just knowing something doesn’t mean that it’s part of your personal vocabulary bank. I always say that you need to experience a new word or phrase at least 10 times before you “own” it.

Make a goal for yourself to do some real, measurable things everyday. For example- a goal of reading one newspaper article a day, listening to Talk Radio on the way to work, and keeping a vocabulary notebook can have a HUGE impact on your English.

Imagine how your English could be this time next year if you just did a little something everyday starting with today. So I give you this challenge to do something (and hopefully it’s something fun) everyday that will improve your English.

If you would like, go to american accent web site and tell me what your English goals are this year. I’d love to hear from you.

To your SUCCESS in English!

How To Pronounce The American T Sound

Today, lets talk about pronunciation. Did you realize that Americans and Canadians are pronouncing the spelling of T in over 10 different ways? British English only uses a few different ways and you may be using it just 1 or 2 ways.

Do you recognize how to pronounce the T in the following words? (Hint- they are all different.)

butter
internet
maintain
Britain
fluent
study
listen
nature

If you are not sure of what to do with each of these T’s, or if you have some idea of how North Americans are using them but don’t know why, I recommend my audio lesson on “Pronouncing the American T.”

In this one-hour class you will learn all of the RULES of T and you can begin to use them immediately! Knowing how to use the T in American English is a HUGE way to begin speaking with an American accent!

The funny thing is- your American and Canadian friends and colleagues are using these sounds all the time (just think how many times you use a T in just one sentence.) And they don’t even realize they are doing it! So that’s why they can’t tell you what you should do to sound like them because it’s a “subconscious” thing.

But once I teach you all of the variations of the T, you can begin to sound exactly like them and you will “consciously” know what is going on.

This is the very first time that I am offering Pronouncing the American T as a stand-alone lesson. In the past you would have either needed to be a member of the American Accent Workshop or have purchased the
American Accent Audio Course.

But now you can get this one hour audio class and handout on its own. Next week I am going to be selling Pronouncing the American T for $20. But if you want to be one of the first people to have the lesson, you can get it right now for only $15. If you want to take advantage of this offer, you will need to get it from this special link:

Buy “Pronouncing the American T”

If you wait until later, the price will go up. Buy it now, download it to your computer, and start learning in just a few minutes. You don’t need to wait for anything to arrive in the mail.

And one more thing… I think you are going to learn a lot from this lesson. But if you buy it and try it and for some reason you don’t think that this lesson can change the way you speak English, just let me know and I will be happy to refund your money.

So again, if you want to get this audio program right now, Buy it Here before it is too late.

Happy English Speaking!
