Most of the students that find us want one thing… to speak English fluently.
They want to feel good speaking English for work. They want to make presentations confidently. Contribute to team meetings in English without stress. Talk with their customers freely.
They want to speak English for social reasons. Some of our students are at University and want to make new friends. Or maybe they are recent immigrants to the US or Canada and want to speak with their neighbors.
Some of our students just want to feel good using English for the basics. Speaking with their doctor… or asking questions at a store.
The hidden secret to speaking English fluently…
So what’s the secret?
Well, in all honesty there’s not one special secret that is the key to unlocking English fluency. However in our opinion, there is one area that is oftentimes overlooked when it comes to English instruction.
So simple right? Knowing the right thing to say to someone in a conversation depends very much on what you think someone is saying to you.
At Lingoloop, even though our marketing slogan is “Feel Good Speaking English,” we don’t want our students to be just great speakers… we want them to be great communicators. Speaking is just 50% of communication. Clearly listening is the other half.
Our method is designed to make you a better communicator and a big part of that is to listen mindfully. Here is a short list of things you can do to improve your English language listening:
- Watch free online videos on Voice of America or Youtube
- Listen to American music
- Listen to talk radio or podcasts
- Watch movies
Of course you can practice your speaking and listening with a Lingoloop teacher online.
Practicing with our expert teachers you will feel like you are in a real conversation. Not just repeating sentences from a book or lecture. We don’t do “repeat after me… “ Our expert teachers are really talented (check out the video below!).
