Chigusa: Alright, so why’s speaking the #1 weakness for most learners?
Yuriy: So, Chigusa, when people first start learning a language, how do you think they start?
Chigusa: Hmm. They usually start with reading? Or, maybe they’ll watch a video on YouTube.
Yuriy: Exactly. So, either they have a book or they’re watching a video.
Chigusa: Yeah, just passively taking the language in.
Yuriy: Now, if you spend most of your time reading or watching videos... what do you get better at?
Chigusa: Hmm, well if you’re just reading, you only get better at reading.
Yuriy: And if you’re watching videos, maybe you’ll remember 1 or 2 words... but your speaking skills won’t grow.
Chigusa: Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. It’s like working out one muscle which gets stronger, and ignoring other ones which stay small.
Yuriy: Exactly. And the point is, most learners avoid speaking. So, they never get better at it.
Chigusa: So listeners, if you want your speaking skills to improve...
Yuriy: ...You need to start speaking. And, here are 7 ways you can start right now.
Chigusa: Number one is obvious. Get a native speaking tutor to practice with.
Yuriy: Now, most people don’t have access to teachers or native speakers.
Chigusa: That’s true. Or, they don’t have the time to meet with one.
Yuriy: But with our Premium PLUS plan...
Chigusa: ...you get your very own on-site teacher.
Yuriy: You can practice speaking by recording yourself, and having them review it.
Chigusa: And one popular tactic is to talk about your day. You’d send 3 recordings...
Yuriy: ...one in the morning, one in the afternoon, and one at night...
Chigusa: Your teacher reviews it and then gives you corrections and feedback.
Yuriy: Number two: Get conversation-based lessons in our lesson library.
Chigusa: If you visit the lesson library...
Yuriy: ...you can sort lessons by Conversation, Reading, Writing, Vocab, Grammar or Culture.
Chigusa: So, select conversations...
Yuriy: ...and you’ll get lessons that expose you to conversations and get you speaking.
Chigusa: Number three: Read out loud.
Yuriy: So, if you're listening to a lesson and reading along with the notes...
Chigusa: ...Read out loud.
Yuriy: Then re-read and speed up your tempo. This is such a powerful tactic because...
Chigusa: ...if you’re reading out loud, you’re practicing your speaking skills.
Yuriy: And, if you increase your reading speed, you’ll also be able to talk faster and with confidence.
Chigusa: So, practice over and over until you can speak faster.
Yuriy: Number four: Prepare things to say ahead of time.
Chigusa: Most learners, especially beginners, run out of things to say...
Yuriy: But, if you prepare lines ahead of time, you won’t run out of things to say.
Chigusa: Listeners, you can start speaking with prepared lines from our 3 Minute Video lessons...
Yuriy: Or Top 25 Questions lessons, Survival Phrases ...
Chigusa: ...and other lessons that you’ll find in the lesson library.
Yuriy: Number five: Shadow conversations.
Chigusa: Meaning, repeat the dialogues as you hear them.
Yuriy: In every lesson, you learn a new conversation.
Chigusa: So try to shadow the conversation line by line.
Yuriy: Premium and Premium PLUS users, follow along with our Dialog study tool...
Chigusa: ...and you’ll master it in no time.
Yuriy: Number six: Use our voice recording tool to practice speaking.
Chigusa: You can practice lines from our lesson conversations....
Yuriy: ...and you can compare yourself to native speakers, to see how close you are.
Chigusa: You’ll find the Voice Recording Tools inside the Dialog section of every audio lesson.
Yuriy: And number seven: Review again and again. Listeners, this is the key to perfection...
Chigusa: ...and it’s why we have to emphasize it. Most learners don’t review! If you review and repeat lines again and again...
Yuriy: ...You’ll be speaking better, faster and with more confidence.
Chigusa: And remember, if you want to unlock all of our effective lessons that focus on real conversations...
Yuriy: ...as well as our entire language learning system.
