Rank #1: The Go Natural English 7 Steps to English Fluency with Gabby Wallace

Podcast cover
Read more

I want to present seven steps that you can use as a clear simple guide for learning English. You can always come back to these steps because they will help you no matter what level or stage you're currently at in English. So if you're ready to begin then let's get started.

If you just follow the path that's been set out for you in English learning, you'll probably take traditional English classes. You'll let your teacher tell you what to learn. And then after months or even years of study, you'll realize you're not where you want to be. Maybe your teacher led you down a different path that they thought was interesting but didn't help you accomplish your goals. The seven steps to fluency help you to create your own goals and your own way of learning English. The seven steps to fluency are actually from inside the English Fluency Formula, an e-book that I wrote for you to help you learn English in just 15 minutes a day. So I'm gonna share them with you.

Normally, you'd have to buy this ebook to read them but I really want to share the seven steps at least to give you a start, and then you can decide if you'd like to get the full ebook.

 

The Seven Steps to English Fluency

Number one is think and plan. So in other words think about why you want to learn English.

What is your reason?  Then plan what you need to know in English in order to be able to do your goal through English. So why are you learning English? Is it to travel? Is it to improve your career or your business, if you're an entrepreneur? Is it perhaps just for a personal hobby, or are you taking a test? So, know your reason why. Think about what English you'll need to accomplish your goals and we're gonna make a plan to achieve them successfully.

Number two: surround yourself with English input. So for example, listen to music in English. Read books and articles in English. Set your phone and your mobile device settings in English. Surround yourself in English so that you're creating an English lifestyle and a habit of consuming English.

Number three: be curious be curious about what interests you and try to learn about it in English.

Number four: repeat. You need to be aware of what you're listening to and repeat the phrases and words that are interesting and useful and new to you. Repeat new words out loud with feeling with emotion and with volume as long as you're not going to disturb anyone else. Repetition and repeating them with feeling are going to help you to remember them.

Okay number five: connect. Again, to help you remember words you want to connect new words with old words that you already know or perhaps words in your own language. This is different than translation.

To connect a word doesn't mean to translate it. It means to connect it to something you already know that you can relate it to. So for example, when I was learning Japanese, I learned the word for the check. When you go to a restaurant when you ask for the check it is "o-waiso." That's one way to say it and this sounds a bit to me like an "eyesore" which means something that is not pleasant to look at. Nobody likes getting the check and knowing how much they have to pay, right? I remembered o-waiso very easily because I connected it with that idea of an eyesore because it sounds similar and there's kind of a funny meaning there. So you have to try to do this with new words in English connect them to something you already know. You can connect new words also with sounds or with songs. That's why I like to learn language a lot through music because the tune helps me to remember the words. So there's a lot of ways that you can connect words.

Next, number six: you need to use the words that you're learning. Use the new sounds, the words, the phrases, the sentences that you're learning.  Number four was repeat them. But number six is different because I want you to actually create your own sentences. You could use what you're learning by writing something or speaking out loud and use what you're learning, so you're applying it in real life.

Finally, number seven is review because reviewing is so important to keep new words fresh in your mind. So review don't be afraid to listen to the same song or to watch the same TV series or movie or read the same article or the same book over and over.

So to read these seven steps and much much more inside the English Fluency Formula, purchase your ebook today.

It's super easy and fast to purchase it and to access it in the members area of the Go Natural English Website. There are thousands of English learners who have purchased it, and who are really enjoying it. So you can read some of their opinions and comments below as well, so thanks so much for watching. I hope that these seven steps will serve you and help you in your journey to English fluency.

"In" is basically within, inside a container or box, maybe an enclosed space but not necessarily.

"On" is related to surfaces.

You can use "in" or "on" in the same sentence, but the meaning would change.

Rank #13: DON'T SAY So, Very, Really - How to Use Advanced Intensifiers to Describe in English

Podcast cover
Read more

Intensifiers -- Americans love to sound exciting and interesting by using intensifiers. Yes, they can be overused, but I notice that many English learners don’t use them at all! The English students I have who DO use them sound much more natural and native-like. 

Intensifiers you probably already know include:

So

Really

Very

And also we can use more interesting words instead of simply re-using these 3 basic words over and over.

Very big = enormous

Very small = tiny

Very smart = brilliant

Very bad = awful, horrible, dreadful

Very sure = certain

Very good = excellent, amazing, awesome

Very tasty = delicious

Examples:

  1. Your house is very big → enormous
  2. My apartment is very small → tiny
  3. You are very smart → brilliant
  4. This movie is very bad → awful
  5. I’m very sure I left my keys on the table → I’m certain
  6. This book is very good → excellent
  7. This food is very tasty → delicious

We can also add more interesting intensifiers before the better vocabulary words:

  • Absolutely
  • Awfully*
  • Completely
  • Exceptionally
  • Particularly
  • Quite
  • Totally
  • Dangerously
  • highly

You’ll notice that often, certain intensifiers are paired with specific vocabulary words, for example:

Absolutely dreadful, horrible, delicious

Absolutely amazing, incredible, wonderful, fantastic, brilliant

Awfully good, interesting

Completely exhausted

Exceptionally intelligent

Particularly helpful

Quite certain

Totally crazy

Dangerously fast

Highly dangerous

Remember these pairings, called collocations! You’ll sound much more native-like. We can mix them up in different combinations too, but those are really common and easy to memorize and start using.

Examples

  1. Your house is very big → absolutely enormous
  2. My apartment is very small → awfully tiny
  3. You are very smart → totally brilliant
  4. This movie is very bad → completely awful
  5. I’m very sure I left my keys on the table → I’m quite certain
  6. This book is very good → particularly excellent
  7. This food is very tasty → dangerously delicious

Rank #15: Improve Your English Listening Skills: Learn How to Understand Fast English Speakers Better

Podcast cover
Read more
As you spend more and more time conversing in English, you’ll realize that apart from learning how to speak English the way, you also have to sharpen your listening skills.

The sharper your English listening skills are, the better you can speak and converse in English in the most natural way.

When you chat and talk to natural English speakers, you’ll come across those who speak maybe a tad too fast for you. But keep in mind that this is really common.

When you go to a restaurant or any place really busy, chances are they will all speak really fast. Don’t worry, I’ve got some tips for you so that you can understand them and catch up!

  DON’T GET OVERWHELMED

The first thing to do is to not get overwhelmed and discouraged. Just because you are having a hard time understanding fast English speakers, it does not mean you have poor listening skills. But there is definitely room for improvement.

As long as you continue to persevere in your journey to learn English, you are always on the right track.

  LEARN ABOUT SPEED, STRESS AND INTONATION

Speed

If you are a beginner at learning English, you may be saying your sentences at a much slower pace. That’s alright. But as you progress, you must be able to adapt to situations when speaking slow and speaking fast are necessary. Of course, this goes hand-in-hand with being able to improve your listening skills so that you understand the people you are conversing with.

Saying – each – word – really – slowly in conversations can make you sound robotic. If you want to sound natural and conversational, it’s important to develop the right speed when talking.

What to Say When Someone Says, “I’ll Get Back to You”

Podcast cover
Read more

When someone says, “I’ll get back to you,” how should you answer? What does that phrase really mean? In your English class, you may not have learned the phrases that native speakers use in real conversation. These phrases might contain expressions that just don’t make sense unless you learn them and know how to respond.

Today I’m going to share some phrases that may be more for business communication than for everyday English. However, if you want to use English for work, as well as everyday life, then you need to know them!

Independence Day | American Culture & Communication ADVANCED Fluency Tips

Podcast cover

Every country has its own culture, holidays and traditions! Americans are very patriotic. 

It is important to understand American culture, holidays and traditions if you want to speak English fluently!

If you experience only one holiday in the USA, it should be the 4th of July.

It’s a big deal - it marks the 13 colonies’ independence from Britain.

The 4th is all about fireworks, food (apple pie!) and freedom for many Americans.

This actually influences the way we speak English and communicate -- a lot! I want to share some stories and cultural info related to the 4th of July that I think will be really helpful for the way you communicate.

Can't understand native English, movies, Netflix series?

Podcast cover
Read more

From https://www.gonaturalenglish.com/cant-understand-native-english-movies-netflix-series/

Why is it that you can understand some English speakers and not others? Why is it even harder to understand native English speakers in movies or Netflix series?

At the end of this, I’ll share how to learn English online with live native tutoring, with the opportunity to get 100% of your tuition refunded!!

This is how your English teacher talks. 

And this is how other people might talk.

A lot of people learn English with movies and Netflix series, becoming fluent for free and having fun doing it. Many of them never even took traditional English classes.

Then, there’s you. YOU probably learned English in a classroom. You are working hard, studying to memorize vocabulary, grammar rules, and maybe you’re going to sit for a test like the IELTS or TOEFL. 

But none of these things prepare you to understand the real world of English speakers. In fact, tests like the IELTS and TOEFL have been engineered to keep regular people out of programs and opportunities, while rewarding rich students who have money for test-prep programs.

Maybe you feel like your English textbook has lied to you about what you really need to communicate in English. You’ve put English courses and test prep books on your credit card, but you still can’t speak with or understand native speakers.

In Netflix series and in American movies you hear slang words you never learned in class, accents that your teacher never showed you, cultural references that you never had time to discuss in class (or maybe your teacher didn’t even know) and most of all — a lot of dialogues that never made it into your textbook. Imagine if a movie had a scene about the famous textbook phrase, the book is on the table?!

Fluency seems like a distant dream. How do they do it? How do people understand and even learn English with movies and Netflix series?

Seeing all those people who learned English as a second language speaking fluently and confidently, it baffles you, especially at such a young age.

The dreams you have of speaking English fluently seem like just that – distant dreams. You realize that English classes are a joke, and you’re on the losing side of this kind of education that is not working.

But what if I told you this is wrong? There’s a way to get there. There’s an equation behind fluency! 

I’ll warn you it’s not always easy, it can be a challenge, but there are clear steps you can take on your own, for free, to reach fluency.

But at the end of this road lies freedom, the freedom of fluency and never having to take another class.

So, are you with me? Let’s get fluent. Let’s go.

What do you really think about fluency? Do you think that only other people, people who are smarter, younger or who have the chance to live abroad can reach it? 

Maybe you even look at people who become fluent in English with some disbelief. Did they pay a lot of money to study abroad? Or maybe they grew up with an English-speaking friend or family member? 

You look at people who have become fluent and wonder how did they get there? The truth is, they didn’t get there taking traditional English classes. They have a better formula for becoming fluent than you do.

So again you wonder, what is this formula?

Stop chasing fluency. 

Fluency comes to you in direct proportion to the amount you use English with real materials and in real conversations. 

After the high beginner level, you should be using native-speaker materials to learn like Netflix series, movies, books, etc and having conversations with natives (and non-native speakers too of course).

If you keep speaking English, people will speak to you in English. Why? It’s about communication. And when you use more English, you’re giving yourself more chances to practice and learn. Even if you make mistakes, those are not bad. Those are changes to make and improve. 

If you want fluency, you shouldn’t be chasing fluency, you should be using English in every way possible.

Listen to the English around you, and if you don’t have English around you — create it!

Remember that understanding English can’t be done by reading about it. Speaking English can’t be done by reading the rules. It’s like trying to become a champion soccer player by reading about soccer on Google. 

There will always be someone better than you at English. Don’t chase perfection. Don’t compare yourself. English is about connection, not perfection.

Specifically, you need to stop chasing perfection in English and start chasing immersion or input. Increase the English that you expose yourself to — I’ve mentioned many ways to do this in previous videos over the past 9 years (Netflix series and movies are 2 great ways).

You must use native-speaker materials because here you will also get information about culture, pop culture and references that people make in communication. Do you know what MLK day is, or who JFK was? These are both important people in American culture and many of the English learners I’ve met do not have a clue who they are because their English textbook doesn’t use real life examples. 

You need to get out of your comfort zone and make more native-speaker friends. Nowadays it’s not an excuse that you live in a non-English speaking country or you can’t leave your house — if you can get Internet service, you can get English-speaking friends.

You need to watch and listen to English with an active mind, making notes of what you’re learning. Don’t be passive or you’ll never remember it. 

Have fun, enjoy the journey, and be patient with yourself. It takes time.

So, you either will continue to use your time dreaming about becoming fluent in English, or doing it. Which will you decide? 

For most of you, it’s not just about English. It’s about the freedom, the feeling, the ability to talk to anyone you want, and understand anything you want, when you want, without checking the dictionary or feeling confused.

The most important thing you can do is keep listening, keep speaking, and fail more, make more mistakes, make more misunderstandings, and learn from them.

DON'T SAY So, Very, Really - How to Use Advanced Intensifiers to Describe in English

Podcast cover
Read more

Intensifiers -- Americans love to sound exciting and interesting by using intensifiers. Yes, they can be overused, but I notice that many English learners don’t use them at all! The English students I have who DO use them sound much more natural and native-like. 

Intensifiers you probably already know include:

So

Really

Very

And also we can use more interesting words instead of simply re-using these 3 basic words over and over.

Very big = enormous

Very small = tiny

Very smart = brilliant

Very bad = awful, horrible, dreadful

Very sure = certain

Very good = excellent, amazing, awesome

Very tasty = delicious

Examples:

  1. Your house is very big → enormous
  2. My apartment is very small → tiny
  3. You are very smart → brilliant
  4. This movie is very bad → awful
  5. I’m very sure I left my keys on the table → I’m certain
  6. This book is very good → excellent
  7. This food is very tasty → delicious

We can also add more interesting intensifiers before the better vocabulary words:

  • Absolutely
  • Awfully*
  • Completely
  • Exceptionally
  • Particularly
  • Quite
  • Totally
  • Dangerously
  • highly

You’ll notice that often, certain intensifiers are paired with specific vocabulary words, for example:

Absolutely dreadful, horrible, delicious

Absolutely amazing, incredible, wonderful, fantastic, brilliant

Awfully good, interesting

Completely exhausted

Exceptionally intelligent

Particularly helpful

Quite certain

Totally crazy

Dangerously fast

Highly dangerous

Remember these pairings, called collocations! You’ll sound much more native-like. We can mix them up in different combinations too, but those are really common and easy to memorize and start using.

Examples

  1. Your house is very big → absolutely enormous
  2. My apartment is very small → awfully tiny
  3. You are very smart → totally brilliant
  4. This movie is very bad → completely awful
  5. I’m very sure I left my keys on the table → I’m quite certain
  6. This book is very good → particularly excellent
  7. This food is very tasty → dangerously delicious
