FLUENT ENGLISH

Let's enjoy English!

8th Jan 2014 ~ Yes, I can! ~

8th Jan 2014

More often than not, people say; “No, I can’t speak English” ===> HELLO, YOU TOLD ME THAT IN PERFECT ENGLISH!!

Congratulate yourself, encourage yourself, pat yourself on the back, as you CAN speak English and read English (you’re reading this now, right!?!). By telling yourself these phrases every once in a while, will REALLY help - look in the mirror and say to yourself;

* Yes, I can speak English!

* Yes, I can read English!

* Yes, I can understand English!


That will definitely give you a whole bunch more confidence to go out there and USE ENGLISH ~ speaking it everyday in as many situations as you can (big and small), will make your overall ability SO MUCH BETTER!


YES, I CAN!!

7th Jan 2014 ~ EXAGGERATE MORE! ~

7th Jan 2014

Following on from yesterday ~ “exaggerating” is one of the best ways for advertising; to get across a point or special idea or uniqueness of a product (as with the ‘Mints’ in the photo).

The same goes for your conversation style ~ making a point, stressing emphasis, exaggerating words or phrases makes things interesting and fun and easy to understand. Plus, this way of talking/expressing yourself will show how fluent and natural you sound to everyone you talk to.


Do try ‘exaggerating’ things a little in your conversations and they will sound SO MUCH BETTER!

6th Jan 2014 ~ EXAGGERATE! ~

6th Jan 2014

It’s interesting, as this came up this morning when I was talking with someone ~ he asked:

“How can I be more fluent?”
I asked this -> “Do you mean to sound more ‘natural’?”
“Yes.”
“OK, then ‘exaggerate’ the way you talk.”
“Exagger... what?”
“Let me explain ~ ”

Yesterday I mentioned about making your studying/practising ‘fun’ ~ remember? (Make It Fun!) Well, this goes a little beyond that by showing more expression and realism in your conversation -> it is very easy and makes a HUGE difference...

Here is an example using the same words but in the second one you need to stress and ‘exaggerate’ the word more, as THAT makes a big, big difference in the way it sounds. Read on...

1) The coffee tastes really good.
2) The coffee tastes REALLY good!

Same words but by ‘exaggerating’ the “REALLY”, it makes everything sound so much more special and “alive”!
Try ‘exaggerating’ things a little in your conversations and they will sound SO MUCH BETTER!


Let’s talk more about this another time, as it makes such a big difference ...

5th Jan 2014 ~ MAKE IT FUN ;-)

5th Jan 2014

Today this came up again and again, so I thought it vital to share it with you ~

People often say that I want to/need to “study” English. That however, is something you usually do at school or university in a classroom. If you are reading this, it is probably more related to “practise” rather than ‘study’.

Making things fun/interesting changes everything and it turns into an enjoyable experience. Use your hobbies as your base to practise; if you enjoy baseball, then look at a baseball site/watch a baseball movie/read a baseball magazine ~ all are ways to practise but make everything more enjoyable for you.

That goes for music, cooking, sports, photography, travelling, etc. etc. etc. --> use your hobbies to help practise your English and you will enjoy the way in which you improve in your language abilities.


HAVE FUN ... !
