E2P30 | 3 Steps to English Success!

On the 30th episode of the English 2.0 Podcast, we talk about the following topic:

3 Steps to English Success: Although I have talked about this quite frequently in my private lessons, I have not mentioned it on the podcast. The 3 steps are to help students organize their activities so that they are maximizing the limited time they have for English learning.

3 Steps to English Success:
1. Study
2. Practice
3. Perform

Action Steps:
1. Choose one activity from the “Study” step (Listening or Reading)
2. Choose one activity from the “Practice” step (Writing or Speaking)
3. Schedule these activities everyday, perhaps alternating them

Does KNOWING = DOING?

Please take a look at this sentence:

“She don’t like to play tennis.”

Is there anything strange to you? Most of you probably immediately can find the easy grammar mistake. Of course, grammatically, it should be:

“She doesn’t like to play tennis.”

So the question is, why is it so easy to see on paper or screen, but so many students have trouble actually saying this correctly? Well, there are a few reasons, but basically the answer is simply:

Knowing does NOT equal Doing.

In high school, we were all taught to remember facts and build our knowledge (INPUT). However, we were not taught how to produce this knowledge in a meaningful way (OUTPUT).

Being a great English speaker requires A LOT of practice and I mean especially, SPEAKING practice. The more you practice converting your knowledge to results, you will become a great speaker.

You have all done STUDY. Now it’s time to PRACTICE and PERFORM!

KNOWING ≠DOING

英語上達方法

意見についてはアメリカと日本の文化や考え方が違います。日本では平和とグループのハーモニーが大事なことだから自分の意見を言うのはアメリカよりしません。アメリカでは色々な考え方とディベートが好きだから自分の意見を言うチャンスが多いです。正しいか正しくないことじゃないけど英語を勉強している日本人が自分の意見を表す練習は少ないです。今日、かんたんな3ステップシステムを教えたいと思います。
