This Englishlearning course has four main parts. Using correct English memorizing, English reading and English listening methodswill result in a higher level of English speaking fluency, so we will look at these different skills in detail,one by one:

1) Memorizing English Vocabulary Effectively

The first part focuses on memorizing English vocabulary in a real way. A lot of students have a habit of translating between English and their first language too muchwhen they read or listen to English vocabulary. I believe that this results in English vocabulary that is very easy to forget. The 'meaning connection' is very weak when only using translation to understand meaning. So when students try and speak in English, the words don't come out very quickly, and the student needs to search hard for the English vocabulary.In this section I talk about methods which you can use to create really deep, strong, natural connections and meanings for English vocabulary, without relying on translating so much,which makes remembering the English vocabulary when speaking much, much easier. This is English vocabulary which is harder to forget, just like the vocabulary of your first language.

2) English Reading Fluency Strategies

The second section focuses on English reading strategies. For building English vocabulary, some students like to create flash cards, or study English vocabulary lists, or just rely on reading English grammar books or English text books. In this section I will explain how using some differentreading strategies and different types of English contentcan help you to build your English vocabulary in a much more effective and naturalway. The 'memorizing English vocabulary' technique should be used with these English reading strategies together for the best results. I also talk about some ideas andresources that you can use to find the best English reading material, depending on your level of reading fluency in English. Gaining a high level ofreading fluency is hugely important beforemoving onto English listening and speaking fluency, because it's the easiest and most logical to achieve first.

3) English Listening Fluency Strategies

Just like reading in English, developingEnglish listening fluencyishugely importantfor building a large English vocabulary, but it can be done the wrong way (mentally translating everything when listening) or it can be done the right way (the natural way of listening). I talk about how to you can improve your English listening fluency by using certain learning methods, and I talk about some English learning resources/websites etc where you can find great English listening content. English listening content that you will naturally be interested in. That is English listening content for beginners, but alsoEnglish listening content for intermediate and advanced English learners as well. English listening fluency is one of those skills that can really effect your English speaking fluency because listening skills are so important for social situations in English and understanding what is going on in the conversation before you want to speak. But these English listening skills can be improved by yourself at home as well.

4) English Speaking Fluency Strategies

And to finish off this English learning course, I'll talk about English speaking fluency methods. Speaking in English, especially in groups where everyone is trying to speakEnglish at the same time, where you need a high level of English listening fluency so that you can understand everything, is the hardest English skill to master, as it alsoproduces the most amount of anxiety for students. In this section I talk aboutfinding good situations to practice speaking English, and some English learning websites for finding great English teachers to practice speaking with.I'll also talk about a method which I use in my onlineEnglish Skype lessons to boost my students' English speaking fluency by turning their"passive" English vocabulary into "active" English vocabulary using a very specific method which surprisingly isn't used by a lot of English teachers. I'll also describean English speaking exercisewhich you can use at home by yourself, without paying for an English teacher,which can improve your English speaking skills. You won't have an English teacher to correct your mistakes, but it's free to use! And lastly I'll talk a little about how this method can be used to improve your English writing skills as well, and then I'll discuss the idea of moving to an English speaking country, and some of the bad habits that you should avoid when learning English, and some good English learning habits that you should try to develop.

If you have any questions about English fluency or improving your English memorizing, English reading, English listening or English speaking skills, please feel free to send me a message and we can have a chat about which ever English learning topic you would like to talk about.
