Speaking English Fluently – Lesson 4 – Practice Listening To Native Speakers

Until now, most of the previous advice about English speaking was about attitude and the idea that you need the right method to speak fluently.  Now you have the basic idea of what it will take and now we’re going to talk about what exactly you should be doing.  Remember that time is not important.  You need quality time.  Don’t read a dictionary or study stuff you already know.  This might make you feel like you are studying, but you are really just wasting your time.  If you read a dictionary you will find mostly words that are not used.  There is no point in trying to remember them.  You need to listen to real native speakers.  If you’ve ever studied English in school, you will notice that what you learn in school is much different than what you will hear in real life.  Most schools wrongly focus on test taking and grammar.  It’s stupid but that’s the reality of the situation.  Grammar can be learned by listening to native speakers.  They almost never make mistakes.  If you listen to what they say, you can learn a lot of grammar indirectly.  Most English movies and TV shows are too difficult to listen to.  They are designed for native speakers.  The best way to practice listening is to listen to English podcasts.  Many podcasts are boring and useless, but there is an excellent one I will recommend at the end of this article series.  More than 4 million of these shows have been downloaded and thousands of students have learned to improve their listening and spoken English fluency more than they could have ever imagined.  The podcasts are about real life topics and use real life slang.  The new words and slang are explained clearly and they are easy to remember.  You can listen in your car, at the gym, at your computer, or on your Ipod.  They are truly the best way to improve listening.  Listening is directly related to speaking.  It’s much better than reading.  Remember, young children can speak quite fluently before they can even read.  Their grammar is pretty good too.  They learn all that from listening.  Even though everyone says it’s much harder for adults, the truth is it’s not too different.  The problem is that most adults just keep using the wrong methods.
