#1 STRATEGY to becoming FLUENT  [and why you DON'T NEED to 'sound like a native speaker'😱]
 
15:25
This video is a MUST WATCH if improving your English is one of your goals for 2019. Learn how to stop wasting your time watching the WRONG video lessons on YouTube, how to make every time you learn something new STICK, what’s the most effective way to enhance your vocabulary and how to own that FLUENT MINDSET that is so crucial when speaking English as a second language (you’ll also learn why I HATE the term “sound like a native speaker”).

NO 🌏Where are you from? Tel-Aviv, Israel (I speak Hebrew) ❓ How did you lose your accent? I learned acting in NYC and acquired an American Accent. So I never really lost anything. I also talk about it here: https://goo.gl/PShZ9s 🤔 How can I sound more like a native speaker? You don't have to. A foreign accent is not a bad thing. It's a part of your identity. Of who you are. Your goal should be to sound clear, to have an impact when you speak, and to feel confident in your English voice so that you never let your English hold you back or prevent you from achieving your goals. Aiming for 'speaking like a native' sets the bar so high, you may get discourages and won't even dare to try. #CommunicationOverPerfection 😩What's the worst thing about traditional English training? It's taught as if everyone has the name needs. And it's mostly boring. 🇺🇸Do native speakers think you are American? At first. But later in the conversation, they may detect a subtle accent. Depends on what I'm talking about and how tired I am. I don't care about it too much though, I'm a proud non-native speaker ✊ 🇮🇱🇵🇸What do you think about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict? I think land is not worth dying or fighting for. I will always promote peace and co-existence. And for me communication in English is a way to overcome political and cultural barriers. 🎓Do you teach 1:1? I don't. I have an amazing colleague, Natalie, who teaches 1:1 at my school and online using my methods. I also have an online program called Accent Makeover that runs 2-3 times a year.

Find your own voice. It's important to improve your pronunciation and fluency so you feel more confident and capable. So YOU can express yourself better, and minimize the gap between your native tongue and your English. And If someone makes fun or judges you because of your accent, simply ask back: Oh, and how many languages do YOU speak?! 😏 People who only speak one language don't always understand what it means to overcome the challenges of speaking a foreign language.

HOW TO LEARN FLUENT ENGLISH - PRACTICAL STRATEGIES THAT WORK
 
07:42
Start improving your fluency now with the English Fluency Formula audio ebook FREE sample: http://bit.ly/effebook --~-- What if there were a way to accelerate your English learning; to learn more in less time? What if there were a way to become a language-learning expert, so that you’re not only learning English, but you’re also able to easily learn or absorb any language you wanted to learn? THE FIRST STEP OF ENGLISH-LANGUAGE LEARNING Here at Go Natural English, our mission is to teach English in a way that meets all of the above criteria. The first step is to learn how to learn English. We don’t just dive right into verb tenses or lists of vocabulary words. Instead, we prefer to teach you the ins-and-outs of the English language in a more meaningful way! Before learning any specific English lessons, we have to make sure that we have a learning mindset, and that we understand strategies for language learning. This is because the way we’ve been taught to learn a language in school, whether you were learning English or any other language, hasn’t worked very well. Simply put: traditional methods at traditional schools, and in a traditional classroom with traditional textbooks, don’t work! Luckily, Gabby has a great group of strategies that you can use to improve the way you learn English. Whether you’re learning English, or are using these tips to learn another language, these non-traditional learning methods will help you learn in a way you never have before. [Tip: If you’ve already downloaded the Go Natural English ebook, you will be able to find these strategies on page 7.] STRATEGIES FOR LANGUAGE LEARNING 1. READ EVERY DAY! Reading a little bit every day is especially helpful if you’re not living in an environment where English is commonly spoken. If the things around you are in your native language, challenge yourself to select something every day to read in English. The easiest way is to make this an automatic task. Good examples would be to read/watch the news in English, or read a part of a book that you are excited about (any genre). 2. REVIEW AND REPEAT WHAT YOU'VE ALREADY LEARNED! If you don’t review and repeat what you’ve learned, your memory won’t be as flexible, and you won’t be able to use that knowledge as easily. Repetition will guarantee that you become stronger, faster, better, and continue improving your knowledge. Although your brain isn’t anatomically a muscle, you should treat it like one when learning English. You must exercise it, build your muscle, and grow your endurance. 3. KEEP A POSITIVE MINDSET! Make a point to keep yourself motivated and confident. Don’t be tempted to focus on what you can’t do! Don’t worry about whether or not you think your English fluency is where you want it to be, don’t focus on your mistakes, and don’t stress over how hard you think learning English will be. These thoughts are not helpful. Instead, keep a positive mindset, and think about all the things you have accomplished and learned. Remember that you are 100% capable of learning English fluently. We believe in you, and we want you to believe in yourself too! 4. FOCUS ON WHAT YOU CAN DO! Focus on your abilities and what you can improve. Even if there is just one small thing you can learn today, or one single mistake that you could work on, use these as opportunities to learn and improve. If you learn just one new thing every day, you will continue to improve over time and make progress! 5. VARY YOUR MEDIA! Use a variety of resources and of different kinds of media. Don’t limit yourself! Use learning tools in all their forms: text, audio, video, and everything in between. The more varied your consumption of media, the more you will be able to identify words in text and speech. 6. FIND MEDIA YOU LOVE! Use the books you love and the music you enjoy, because English should become a part of your life that you love too! Making English a part of your life, and making your learning experience something you look forward to doing every day, is going to help you learn a lot faster. It will also be more fun! Learning a new language can be a frustrating task – we’ve been there too! – so we understand your frustration. Our goal is to teach you these practical, usable strategies that really work and that help you accomplish YOUR goal of becoming fluent in English.

Exam Skills: 4 tips for listening exams
 
02:42
As with other exams, preparation is important. One of the best ways to prepare yourself for a listening exam is to listen to as much spoken English as possible, as often as you can. Watch this video to find out four top tips to help you prepare for your listening exam. Then visit our website and test your understanding in our quiz: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/course/english-you-need/unit-16/session-1 Transcript Rob For all exams, preparation is important. And one of the best ways to prepare yourself for a listening exam is to listen to as much spoken English as possible, as often as you can. That's what this student does… Student I think that one of the best things is watching TV because even if you don’t understand it, you can understand it from the picture, but your listening skills are improved. But even better, I think, it’s radio, listening to the radio, because you have to concentrate only on sounds, not on the picture. Rob So TV or radio are great places to listen to authentic English. Don’t forget that you can also practise your listening skills by watching movies and listening to music. If you listen to something that you find interesting, you are more likely to enjoy the experience and as a result improve your listening. Also, get hold of some practice tests on CD or as mp3 files and listen to them often. As well as giving you further practice in listening, these tests allow you to become familiar with the format of the exam and let you know how many times you’ll hear the listening text in the real test. There’s no need to be in a quiet room to do the practice tests. In fact, it’s often better if you’re not – this forces you to focus on the key speakers, with background noise and distractors going on. Language teacher Margaret John says this will help… Language teacher, Margaret John Some examinations deliberately put distractors, such as noisy environments like Tube stations and bus stations and airports, behind the speakers. If you’ve been practising listening that way, you will be in a much better position in exam conditions to be able to handle this problem. Rob When you're finally in the real exam, make sure you can hear properly. If you have a problem, tell the examiner right at the beginning - after the exam is too late! These tips will hopefully get you going in your listening exam. Good luck!

Investigating self-directed learning in an online community:  the Add1Challenge
 
42:39
Tita & Ana Beaven (Open University) - Self-directed learning (SDL) can be defined as a process started by an individual, which involves needs analysis and goal setting, followed by the implementation - with or without the support of others - of the necessary learning strategies and identification of the most suitable resources to meet one’s learning objectives and assess results (Knowles, 1975). The online environment offers a fertile ground for self-directed language learning, by providing - among others - the possibility to create communities of learners. One such community is the one formed around the Add1Challenge, organised by Brian Kwong, in which participants commit themselves to learning a language in 90 days, with the aim of being able to hold a 15-minute conversation with a ‘native’ speaker by the end of the Challenge. The Add1Challenge online community seems an ideal place to investigate self-directed language learning and, in particular, the strategies used by participants specifically regarding the development of speaking skills in the L2. The study involves 18 participants in one of the Add1Challenges taking place in the spring of 2017. The data is being collected in the form of pre- and post-challenge questionnaires, learning logs provided by some of the participants through the online community page, and longitudinal semi-structured interviews at different stages of the 90-day challenge. A version of the Strategy Inventory for Language Learning (SILL) framework (Oxford, R.1989) is used as a framework for data generation and analysis.    In our presentation, we will discuss our findings from the study, in order to contribute to a better understanding of the strategies used by self-directed language learners.

1 Simple Method to Increase Your Vocabulary | The 3R Technique | How to Improve Your Vocabulary

Transcript: Hello and welcome. In this lesson, I’m going to teach you 1 simple method that you can use to increase your vocabulary. This is the technique that I teach my students, and this is also what I use personally to learn new words – so I know that this works. So what is this technique? Well, it’s the 3R method. It’s called 3R because there are three steps: Read, Record and Review. I will show you how to do all three of these correctly to get the best results. So let’s talk about the first step: Read. If there’s one secret to building your vocabulary, it’s reading. There is simply no better way. You should aim to read for an hour per day. If that’s difficult, do at least half an hour, i.e. 30 minutes but one hour per day will give you the most benefit. Now I’m not talking about reading the newspaper or studying textbooks. That kind of reading is good but it’s not the best way to learn new words. For that, you need to read what is interesting. So here’s an idea: pick something that you’re really interested in. Like sports, movies, music, cars, fitness, fashion, electronics etc. - whatever you feel passionate about. Then find material that you will enjoy reading. Some great examples are magazines, novels, short stories or biographies related to your topic. And don’t forget the internet – one of my favorite places for reading online is Wikipedia. There are millions of articles on this site and whatever your topic of interest is, you can go on Wikipedia and find articles to read. Now, there’s something really important. When you read (whether it’s books or online material), there will be many words that are difficult – that you don’t understand. But don’t look up every single one of these in a dictionary. Because that will distract you and make you bored. Instead, your focus should be to just understand the overall idea of what you are reading. For any difficult words, try to guess the meaning from the surrounding information. If you cannot, mark them with a pencil, or write them down and you can come back to them after you finish reading. After you have finished reading, you move on to step 2 – record. This is where you collect new words. So now, you go back to the text you read and find words to learn – there are two types of words that you can learn – unknown words (words that you don’t know), and inactive words (these are words that you have seen before but you’re not sure how to use). Aim to collect about 5-10 new words every day. Once you have the words, you’re going to note them down in a notebook, on your computer (in a Microsoft Word or Excel file) or even your smartphone (there are many apps that will let you save and learn vocabulary). Start by taking your first word and look it up in a dictionary. I personally prefer to use online dictionaries like Cambridge, Oxford or Merriam-Webster. And now, you can start to record the word. Let’s look at the best way to do that. In your notebook or file, first write the word - let’s say ‘creative’ is the word you’re learning. From your dictionary, you should then write what part of speech it is (that is, whether it’s a noun, verb, adjective, adverb etc.). This word is an adjective. Then you write its definition – ‘creative’ means ‘having the ability to produce original ideas’ - it can describe people or activities. Then you note any example sentences that you can find or you can make sentences of your own. Here are a couple of examples: “Frank Zappa was a highly creative musician.” “Children enjoy doing creative activities.” Along with this, you should also note down the correct pronunciation of the word in phonetic symbols. This word is pronounced /kri ˈeɪ.tɪv/. There are three syllables – /kri/, /eɪ/, and /tɪv/ with the stress on /eɪ/ – /kriˈeɪ.tɪv/. You might not know these symbols very well, that’s OK. With the dictionary, practice the correct pronunciation a few times, then copy the symbols. Over time, you will become comfortable with them. It’s also a good idea to make a note of the reference – that is, where you learned the word: which book, website etc. Because, later, when you are reviewing the word, you can more easily recall where you saw it, and you can also go to the same website or book if you want to check how it’s used. You should also try to find and note down the different forms of the word. For example, we said that the word ‘creative’ is an adjective. But it has other forms too.

Just 1 thing you must change about the way you learn to… Have your words came out naturally and automatically – without hesitation – as if English were your first language, every time you speak… Express your exact thoughts spontaneously, continuously and in detail, without being forced to change what you want to say – or only speak in simple sentences – because you can’t find the right words… Understand everything you hear in English movies, TV shows, music and conversations, and finally speak confidently – without ever feeling nervous or worried about mistakes – with the smooth pronunciation of a native speaker… And best of all, this 1 easy change in the way you learn will help you experience immediate improvement in your spoken English so you’ll finally be certain that you’re learning the right way. But before I reveal this trick, I’d like you to know why so many English learners have problems with their English and struggle to become fluent Speakers… Why do so many English learners often use words that sound unnatural in conversations? What’s the reason they often have to think about what grammar rules to use before speaking? What stops them from speaking smoothly and clearly? The answer to all of these questions is, in 3 words… How They Learn You see, traditional language learning methods only give English learners part of the fluency puzzle… Lessons teach them grammar rules, but not how to use grammar without thinking when they speak. Students learn English through their own language, so they’re trained to hesitate and translate in their heads during conversations. They learn to read and write the formal English of textbooks, but get very little training listening to – and speaking – casual, conversational, spoken English. So, what is the 1 simple trick to becoming a successful English speaker? It’s to learn English like native speakers. Fluency is nothing more than a collection of habits, like using grammar without thinking, or pronouncing words correctly. So, all you need to do to develop the same habits native speakers have is to learn the same way native speakers learn… When you learn English like native speakers, you master grammar automatically – without grammar tables and boring drills – through visual examples and stories. Building fluency like a native speaker means you also learn slang, idioms, phrasal verbs and other conversational, spoken English expressions, in addition to what’s appropriate for writing. Learning English the native way means you learn to speak fluent English naturally, actually practicing with native English speakers and building speaking confidence in the real world. When you learn this way, it’s easy, fun, fast and doesn’t feel like studying at all, just like how you learned your own native language… Now that you know that you must change the way you learn if you want to get fluent – because the traditional methods you’ve been using until now have not helped you become a confident speaker – how can you start developing the habits of a native English speaker so you can start speaking fluent English confidently? With EnglishAnyone.com's English Fluency Training Video Course: Master English Conversation 2.0. Master English Conversation 2.0 was designed by learners for learners with everything you need to finally… Master even complicated grammar points without confusing grammar tables or boring drills so you can use grammar without hesitation when you speak… Understand everything native speakers say and build a vocabulary of real, conversational words and expressions to start speaking naturally and correctly… Improve your pronunciation and sound like a native speaker… Develop the habit of speaking and responding spontaneously in real situations… Overcome shyness, meet native English speakers online and in the real world to practice speaking with, and build speaking confidence… Click on the link below to begin getting fluent the simple, easy way, just like native speakers, with a 100% guaranteed English conversation and fluency course – including 5 valuable, exclusive bonuses to help you get fluent even faster – available now for over 60% off.

How to Improve Foreign Language Students' Learning Habits and Methods
 
53:02
Presenter: Carl Gene Fordham Website: http://www.carlgene.com Lecture introduction: I'm happy to say that my first week at BISU teaching translation has been a blast. It is clear to me that the students here work hard and are eager to learn. However, I have been concerned about the kinds of learning habits and methods they have adopted. Students tell me they yearn to make an improvement in their language level, but find themselves frustrated. It seems that many of the learning habits they have formed either don't work or are inefficient. In this lecture, I would like to discuss some of the most common issues students from China face in learning a foreign language, and suggest how we can deal with them. I will also introduce my own approach toward learning a second language that allows students to not only speed up their learning but enjoy the process more. Aimed at: foreign language students, translation students, English students About the lecturer: Carl Gene Fordham lectures on Chinese-English translation at the School of Interpreting and Translation, Beijing International Studies University. Carl is dedicated to providing students with practical, research-based training, with a student-centred approach. His teaching style places emphasis on authentic translation projects and teaching methods that are specially tailored to the needs of Chinese students. His research interests include translation pedagogy, first language interference and literary translation. As an Australian NAATI-accredited Chinese-English translator, Carl has over eight years' experience in professional translation, mainly in the Australian legal, business and immigration domains. He has also regularly coordinated NAATI professional translating and interpreting courses in Melbourne since 2008. Carl holds a Master's in Translation Studies from RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia, and a Master's in Ancient Chinese History from Xiamen, China. Carl has been a learner of Chinese since primary school, and in high school was fortunate to have the opportunity to study in a Chinese immersion class which kindled his interest in Chinese language and culture. He has run the popular blog about Chinese-English translation Yi Bu Yi Ge Jiaoyin (http://www.carlgene.com) since 2009. In his spare time, Carl enjoys reading, travel and Chinese calligraphy.

Productive and Receptive Skills
 
26:24
The four types of communication skills that are taught in an English language classroom are speaking, writing, reading and listening. These four separate language skills are also commonly referred to as the productive and receptive skills. Speaking and writing are known as the productive skills as they both require some form of language output, while reading and listening are known as the receptive skills. Alternatively, you may also find the productive skills referred to as the active skills and the receptive skills referred to as the passive skills.

English Tips for Japanese Speakers
 
13:21
Japanese speakers have many challenges when learning English. For example, the words in a sentence are usually in a different order. In this video, we will talk about proper English syntax and word order in contrast with the Japanese language. We will also talk about the differences in verb tenses between English and Japanese, as well as issues of formality when using pronouns. I will also give you some accent tips to help make sure you are understood by English speakers. For all you native Japanese speakers, this video is made especially for you, so please watch and let me know if these tips help you. Test yourself with the quiz: https://www.engvid.com/english-tips-for-japanese-speakers/ TRANSCRIPT Hello, and welcome back to engVid. Today's lesson is specifically designed for Japanese learners of English. Now, I know how difficult it must be to learn English if you are Japanese, because it is a very difficult language, very different language. I have no knowledge of Japanese, so I respect you for trying to learn our language. Now, a few tips which I have written on the board for you. First of all, we should avoid putting the topic at the beginning of a sentence. For example: "Those people don't understand at all." Now, in English, we normally put the subject, then the verb, and then the object. The subject of this sentence here is not "Those people". "Those people", that is actually the object. We need a subject. The subject of this sentence should actually be "I", that is what the person means, so: "I do not understand", and then the object goes after the verb. Okay? "I do not understand those people at all." If we don't put our words in this order then you will confuse people. Again, this is a slightly strange... This is confusing. "It should be noted Benjamin's engVid videos." Okay? How I would phrase this... Let's have a subject. What do we want the subject to be? What about "You"? "You should", okay? "You should", and what the verb really is, is "watch". And the object: "Benjamin's engVid videos". Thank you for watching this video, by the way. Okay, so let's do a little bit more on word order. In Japanese, often it's subject, object, verb. For example: "I, you, phone", whereas in English, as I've just said, we're doing: Subject, verb, object. So, subject: "I", verb: "phone", "you" needs to go at the end. "I phone you." Now, going to a greater degree of complexity, a complex sentence. So, in Japanese with a complex sentence we would have the sub clause and then the main clause, but in English we can experiment, we can have the sub clause at the beginning, middle, or end of a sentence. Right. So, let me check. At the beginning... This is with a sub clause at the beginning. "Having smashed his phone, he bought a new one." He's smashed his phone, he's not had a good day. Okay, so that's with the sub clause at the beginning. We've got that. "How, Benjamin, do we have a sub clause in the middle?" Well, you start the main clause, so I start: "He", okay? I'm putting my subject. "He", now we have the sub clause. "He, having smashed his phone, bought a new one." Okay? So we start putting the main clause, then we put a little bit of extra information, and then we have the main information, the main clause. You could also have a sub clause at the end. "He bought a new phone, having smashed his old one." Okay? Now, the verb: "to be", I understand that Japanese people do have difficulty with using the verb "to be" because there seems to be no direct equivalent, so I'm just going to show you how we conjugate this verb. "I am happy.", "He is a good person.", "I am", "He is". "She is proficient at English." Okay? Meaning good. "You are Japanese." I know in Japanese it's slightly rude to say: "You", but in English it is widely acceptable. "We are happy that you are watching this video.", "They are noisy." My next area for today's lesson: Unreal conditionals. I know that this doesn't particularly make sense in Japanese. I will try to explain it as best as I can. "If I had known", okay? So what I'm about to say... I'm talking about me lying in bed this morning. Okay? And I'm thinking... So I'm thinking back... Okay? Because now... Now, what is it? Say it's 7 o'clock, it's 7pm, the time we are recording this right now. I'm thinking about 7am. So it's now 7pm, I'm thinking about 7am. If back then I had seen to the future... If back then I had known what was going to happen then, I would have just stayed there. In a sentence context: "If I had known that my phone was going to smash, I wouldn't have got out of bed." Okay? So it's quite a weird cycle. So I'm thinking: "What if back then I knew the future?" Obviously, you know. […]

Free Teacher Professional Development:  Putting the Language Back into English Language Learning in
 
33:14
Title Free Teacher Professional Development: Putting the Language Back into English Language Learning in Content Classrooms Description Developing Academic Language for ELLs in the mainstream, content classroom Offered by Drs. Margo DelliCarpini and Christel Broady Mainstream teachers are often unprepared or underprepared to meet the language learning needs of ELLs in the mainstream classroom. While a number of approaches focus on ways to build these skills ( SIOP, Content Based Instruction, English for Academic Purposes) they often require that EITHER mainstream teachers OR ESL teachers perform these skills in isolation. We discuss how collaborative practices between mainstream and content teachers can be an effective way to accomplish the language learning goals for ELLS in both the mainstream and ESL setting, as well as discuss ways in which we can prepare mainstream teachers, with proper support, to develop language -driven content objectives that focus on the development of BOTH language and content.

Key Links Guided Reading
 
07:27
Guided Reading is an approach where students are grouped to read according to their reading stage (or level) — not age. Students in a guided reading group are prompted to apply literacy skills and strategies they have been introduced to through Shared Reading or other literacy experiences. The teacher is able to assess whether students are able to use appropriate literacy skills and strategies by the responses they make to teacher prompts. During Guided Reading the responsibility for reading shifts more to the student than in Shared Reading. The teacher supports the readers by asking probing questions. Visit http://www.keylinks.com.au
