LEARNING TO SPEAK ENGLISH FLUENTLY takes time, but it doesnâ€™t have to be hard work. As babies, we donâ€™t begin by memorizing grammar and vocabulary. We hear the â€śrhythmâ€ť of our native language from our earliest days, and we begin to recognize and imitate the special â€śmelodyâ€ť of our language long before we can say words or sentences.
When we do begin to talk, we NEVER have a foreign accent in our native language! Some people think itâ€™s impossible for adults to achieve a natural sound in a second language, but perhaps the problem is not our age, but how we study the language.
In my classes, I begin with the â€śmusical signalsâ€ť of English (rhythm and melody), which make your speech more â€ślistener-friendlyâ€ť or familiar to an English speaker. Through â€śActive Listeningâ€ť and â€śQuality Repetitionâ€ť you can really improve your spoken English, and have fun doing it.
