Peter: ...and one question asked you to rate your abilities in four areas...
Becky: ...Listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
Peter: Over 80% responded that speaking is their number one weakness.
Becky: This is a common problem with language learners everywhere.

Becky: Alright, so why’s speaking the #1 weakness among learners?
Peter: The answer is easy, Becky. You get better at what you focus on. So when language learners first start....
Becky: They usually start with reading. They read articles online.
Peter: Or if they take a class, they spend 20% of their time repeating words in class...
Becky: ...and 80% of the time reading the textbook...
Peter: ...or doing homework or just listening to a teacher.
Becky: So, if you spend most of your time reading instead of speaking...
Peter: You get better at reading. But, your speaking skills never improve...
Becky: Yeah, that makes sense. Listeners, picture this. It’s like working out one muscle...
Peter: ...which gets stronger and stronger...
Becky: ...and ignoring another one, meaning it stays small and weak.
Peter: This is usually why speaking is a weakness for learners.
Becky: Alright, so listeners, if you want to speak with confidence...
Peter: ...You need to spend more of your study time on how to speak. Here are 5 ways you can start right now.
Becky: Number one is obvious. Simply get a native speaking teacher to practice with.
Peter: That’s right. In fact, with our Premium PLUS subscription, you get just that...
Becky: That’s right – 1-on-1 learning with your very own teacher.
Peter: But to improve on your own time, here’s what you can do...
Becky: Number two: Read out loud. If you’re listening to a lesson and reading along...
Peter: Read out loud. Then re-read and speed up your tempo. Do this again and again until you can speak faster.
Becky: Number three: Prepare things to say ahead of time. Most learners run out of things to say...
Peter: But, if you prepare lines ahead of time, you won’t be at a loss for words in conversations.
Becky: Listeners, you can start speaking with prepared lines from our 3-Minute Video Series...
Peter: As well as our Top 25 Questions Series, Survival Phrases, and much more.
Becky: Let’s move on to number four: Shadowing. By this, we mean repeating the dialogues as you hear them.
Peter: In every lesson, you learn a new conversation.
Becky: So try to shadow the conversation line by line. Premium and Premium PLUS users, you can use the Line-By-Line tool to perfect this method.
Becky: And you’ll master it in no time.
Peter: Number five: Reviewing again and again. Listeners, this is the key to perfection...
Becky: ...and it’s why we have to emphasize it. Most learners don’t review! If you review and repeat lines again and again...
Peter: ...You’ll be speaking better, faster, and with more confidence.
Becky: And remember, if you want to unlock all of our effective lessons that focus on real conversations...
