fluently with no grammar and no

your English teacher and founder of

speak English podcast.com my mission is

to help you to speak English fluently

speaking English is easier than it seems

you just have to use the right material

and techniques today I'll talk about

grammar and English fluency is grammar

important do you really need to study

grammar before I go any further I'd like

to thank you for listening I'm also a

language learner and I can identify with

you and your goals so I want to help you

do you know how you can help me it would

be great if you could share my podcast

with your friends or write a review on

iTunes YouTube or my Facebook page your

help would mean a lot to me let me share

a review of a student named Catalina I'm

a language teacher in my home country

and this method is an easy and very

intelligent way to learn English the

user questions and answers and point of

view is the correct way to learn a

language

Georgianna really cares about the people

who use her method because we can learn

effectively Thanks Catalina I'm happy to

know that my method is helping you with

your English alright now let's get

started are you a frequent listener of

the speak English now podcast then I'm

sure you're more than familiar with the

opening of the show speak English now

fluently with no grammar and no

textbooks that

right I help my students to speak

English fluently without grammar and

still people ask me from time to time

his grammar essential should I learn

grammar my short answer is no it's not

essential and you shouldn't learn

grammar so let me elaborate my answer a

bit more first of all if you want to

speak English fluently you don't need to

study grammar here's why when children

learn to speak they don't study grammar

kids only listen enough times to the

same patterns the same words it's that

simple

grammar doesn't help in real

conversations because you don't have

time to apply complicated rules when

speaking textbooks aren't usually

designed to help us pass an exam but

they don't help you to speak English so

am I saying that you shouldn't learn

grammar at all well not exactly

grammar can be useful when you don't

know anything about a language or when

you want to pass an exam but I've got

good news for you with my lessons you'll

learn grammar without studying grammar

yes that's right

in my courses I use a technique called

the point of view lesson if you've

listened to some episodes of the podcast

you're already familiar with this method

basically I tell a short story several

times changing the linguistic point of

view for example I tell the same story

to you in the past present and future

tense or plural and singular this system

works incredibly well it helps you use

grammar intuitively and without making

errors therefore you will not study

grammar

still you will learn grammar what most

English Learner do is to study a lot of

grammar and do all kind of textbook

exercises filling the gaps matching

lists etc perhaps this sounds familiar

to you and the logical thing after

months of hard work is to have a

conversation in English so you're

excited and ultimately hire a private

English tutor but to your surprise

things go worse than you expected you

begin to realize that you can't follow a

conversation in English because every

time you try to speak you make silly

mistakes or you can't finish most

sentences this is the turning point

where most students give up so you must

keep in mind that the effort or time you

put into learning English is not the

only essential factor without the right

method you won't become fluent that

being said your fluency in English is

not based on grammar but rather on the

amount of time you listen that's why

with my courses you'll become fluent in

English only by listening with no

grammar and no textbooks and before I

continue with a point of view story I'd

like to answer a common question I'll

briefly explain the difference between

my courses and the podcast I offer the

episodes of the podcast for free so that

students all over the world

become familiar with my method my

English courses are separated from the

podcast and they are complete programs

designed to improve fluency through

stories with the question in answers and

the point of view lessons

initially the lessons are easier and the

difficulty increases little by little

the first lessons are shorter and I

speak a little more slowly this way you

will adapt better to the whole program

in addition to that you have a

step-by-step guide so that you can get

the most out of my courses for more

alright now let's practice some grammar

don't worry you don't have to memorize

anything just listen carefully

first I'll tell the story in the past

tense in the third person tom was the

only accountant in a large corporation

on an academic level he was remarkably

well prepared he had a lot of work to do

every day he calculated classified

consulted and evaluated all kinds of

accounting aspects also he made all

kinds of decisions without making

mistakes still tom wasn't happy with his

situation although he was very popular

within the company he was the perfect

employee but he was not motivated so one

day tom concluded that his work was

superficial and he decided to quit tom

created a new business open to the

public

called the delicious chocolate family

house there he merely offered a

collection of the best chocolate in the

world his business was particularly

appealing to family members who regular

early held all kinds of events after

that change Tom was more motivated than

ever because he no longer calculated

classified consulted and evaluated he

just enjoyed life now the same story in

the present tense tom was the only

accountant in a large corporation on an

academic level he is remarkably well

prepared he has a lot of work to do

every day he calculates classifieds

consults and evaluates all kinds of

accounting aspects also he makes all

kind of decisions without making

mistakes still tom is unhappy with his

situation although he's very popular

within the company he is the perfect

employee but he's not motivated so one

day tom concludes that his work is

superficial and decides to quit tom

creates a new business open to the

public

called the delicious chocolate family

house there he merely offers a

collection of the best chocolate in the

world his business is particularly

appealing to family members who

regularly hold all kinds of events now

tom is more motivated than ever because

he no longer calculates classifieds

consults and evaluates he just enjoys

life perfect this is the end of this

point of view have you seen how chances

change if you want to get hours of audio

lessons
