Hi, everybody! I am Georgiana, your English teacher and founder of SpeakEnglishPodcast.com. My mission is to help you speak English fluently.
Today I will tell you how to train your brain to listen more in English.
And with a fun mini-story, you will improve your English fluency.
Nowadays, we are very used to watching content on the Internet. There is a wide variety of materials.
And when it comes to learning English, it is no exception, so I understand that you can feel overwhelmed by so many possibilities.
That's why I'm here, to give you clarity and to help you speak English in a very short time and with a very efficient method.
While most teachers switch from audio to video, I have done the opposite.
There are several reasons why I have stopped making videos regularly. I've started making videos a decade ago. Meanwhile, I was teaching English one on one to students from all over the world and of all ages.
That's how I came up with the best method to learn English.
I noticed that when my students were listening to simple audio repeatedly, they were learning faster, and their listening and speech improved.
I've realized that many students learn with their eyes and not with their ears. Listening was a greater challenge than reading for many.
If you want to understand a language better, you need to train your brain to listen more.
Another aspect that has helped me understand what my students really need was the fact that I'm a polyglot.
I've started learning several languages when I was a kid, by using different techniques. For me, the most effective way to learn a language was to learn by listening.
With my podcast, you will improve your listening and comprehension, especially if you listen repeatedly.
Most students think that the more variety, the better.
So what they usually do is listen to an audio once or twice and then change to something else.
Well, variety is useful, but what you want is to consolidate what you listen to; if you want to train your brain to listen, the most effective way to achieve this is through repetition.
For example, you can use one of my podcast episodes. I recommend that you listen to every episode several times to consolidate the content.
I provide a transcript for each episode, so after listening to an episode a few times, get the transcript and read it at the same time.
Another excellent way to improve your English is by using my premium courses.
