Chigusa: Alright, listeners, here are the top 5 hacks and tactics to perfect your speaking....
Peter: ...with our language learning program.
Chigusa: Let’s jump into it right now.
Peter: First: shadow the dialogues you hear in the lessons.
Chigusa: What is shadowing?
Peter: It's a learning technique where you mimic native speakers.
Chigusa: In other words, you listen and then you repeat what they say.
Peter: This is the fastest and easiest way to start practicing speaking.
Chigusa: You can do this with any one of our audio or video lessons...
Peter: ...and what’s even easier, if you have access to the Dialogue section...
Chigusa: ...you can read along out loud as you listen.
Peter: Listeners, shadow as much as possible to perfect your speaking...
Chigusa: ...and try harder lessons to take yourself to the next level.
Peter: Second: read the dialogue out loud.
Chigusa: We just mentioned it it in the first part.
Peter: ...but this tactic deserves it’s own special mention. Here’s why.
Chigusa: Reading out loud is another easy way to practice your speaking.
Peter: Simply read the lesson dialogue that’s available in the dialogue section...
Chigusa: ...the lesson notes or the lesson transcript.
Peter: By reading out loud, you’re practicing your speaking skills.
Chigusa: And here’s a trick - if you can get yourself to read faster... you’ll be able to speak faster too!
Peter: That’s a great point, Chigusa. Natives tend to speak fast and if you can too...
Chigusa: ...that’s a sign that you’re good.
Peter: Third: record yourself speaking to perfect your pronunciation.
Chigusa: If you’re a Premium or Premium PLUS member, look for the voice recorder in the dialogue section.
Peter: With this tool, you can record yourself and compare your speaking...
Chigusa: ...to a native speaker.
Peter: This is powerful because you instantly hear the difference between....
Chigusa: ...your speech...
Peter: ...and the authentic, native pronunciation.
Chigusa: And then you can easily perfect your speaking and pronunciation.
Peter: If you don’t have a Premium account, record yourself with your smartphone.
Chigusa: And while you can’t really compare, you CAN spot where you struggle or stutter.
Peter: Exactly. Professional speakers, public speakers... anyone that has to give a presentation. They ALL use this tactic.
Chigusa: Fourth: If you’re a Premium PLUS member, record yourself...
Peter: ...and send it to your Premium PLUS teacher for feedback.
Chigusa: Here, you’re getting instant feedback from a native. They’ll point out your mistakes..
Peter: ...they’ll tell you what to improve and how...
Chigusa: ...and record themselves and work with you until you reach perfection.
Peter: That’s the power of having a native speaker give you feedback.
Chigusa: Peter, but what should our listeners say? What are they recording?
Peter: Here’s an easy one: Record a 1-paragraph self intro. In fact, we ask all of our new members do this. So...Give your name. Your age. Where you’re from. Why you’re learning. And that’s it.
Chigusa: Yeah, that’s a great way to get started.
Peter: Our more advanced students talk about their day. They send 3 recordings, in the morning, in the afternoon, at night. For example “I woke up at 7AM and brushed my teeth. I got ready for work. My train was a little late,” etc.
Chigusa: Listeners, this will dramatically improve your speaking...
Peter: ...because you’re practicing conversations that people have all the time.
Chigusa: And the fifth way to perfect your speaking: Premium PLUS assignments.
Peter: With this feature...
Chigusa: ...you get weekly assignments based on your needs and goals...
Peter: whether they’re reading, writing, listening or speaking. Now, if you want to improve your speaking...
Chigusa: ....your Premium PLUS teacher will send you speaking assignments ..
Peter: ...non-stop, every week, and provide you with constant feedback...
Chigusa: ...as part of your personalized learning experience.
Peter: So, listeners take advantage of our tools...
Chigusa: ...put these tactics to use...
Peter: and remember…
