Learning English is difficult—there’s no way around it! If you are truly wanting to learn English you need to master the spoken English pronunciation of thousands of English words and the many unique spoken English reductions and colloquialisms of American English.
But I can help you! This video proves that you CAN learn English – it is possible and you can do it. It looks at 10 of the most common English words and makes sure you fully understand their pronunciation—not just the exact pronunciation but, more importantly, the spoken English pronunciation. That’s the key! Spoken English fluency is what it’s all about.
I don’t want you to simply learn English. I want you to be learning English as a native American English speaker learns it! That is, with a laser-focus on spoken English pronunciation. That’s the key: learning English as spoken English.
Of course learning English grammar is important. So is building up your vocabulary—your repertoire of English words. And knowing the correct, full, pronunciation of every English word is a great goal as well.
But learning English should, in my opinion, always be directed toward you learning English as spoken English. Why? It’s actually simple: if you don’t learn English as spoken English you will always struggle to sound like a native speaker. And for most people trying to learn English that is the desired end result: having a pronunciation style that is fluent, smooth, natural and confident.
I want you to have the kinds of conversations and connections you desire. My guess is that this is your desire too. I’ve been teaching English online for 10 years, teaching millions of students along the way. And I’ve seen first hand how exhilarating in can be as someone is learning English and truly getting it!
And that’s what this video is all about: learning English as spoken English by diving deep into 10 of the most common English words.
