What you learn in textbooks is very useful information. But there’s a problem. Most textbooks don’t teach “real” English.
If you want to communicate with native English speakers, watch TV in English, work and travel overseas then you need to speak and understand “real” spoken English.
I’ll Expose You to Natural, “Real” American English.
But just listening to me won’t improve your listening! You also need to try speaking like a native speaker. There are two reasons. First, improving your own speaking ability will greatly improve your listening ability. Second, you need a target or a goal to improve your English.
Here’s How to Get Started
1. Follow me on Facebook or Twitter
I update Twitter and Facebook with natural spoken English. I talk about things going on in the world, online and in my life. I use natural informal English and usually give a quick explanation of any slang, idioms and possible native style pronunciation I use.
2. Read my blog and watch my lessons
I create videos lessons and blog updates about natural spoken English. These are usually deeper, more detailed explanations. I’ll keep you updated about any new lessons or blog posts through Facebook and Twitter.
3. Books and Courses
I’ve created two small free books and I’ll be creating more (free and paid) books and courses in the future. I’m working to get my material on Amazon, iBookstore and the Apple App Store. I appreciate your patience. Although I’ve been teaching for years, I’m fairly new a self-publishing.
4. Recommended Resources
I’m building a list of important resources to help you improve your English. I get anywhere from 50 – 100 messages per week asking for recommendations. I will continue to answer questions, but I like to create a place on my website where I can easily point students to my common recommendations.
5. Private Lessons (Evaluations)
I’m currently working on a service (over Skype) to help you evaluate and improve your Pronunciation. At this time, I’m unable to give private lessons online. There may be openings in the future. If you’re looking for a teacher, I can help connect you with some online teachers who may be available. You can contact me by e-mail.
