Last week I asked this question:
Most of the messages I got were pretty correct.
And all of these are true. There are a couple more reasons that we could add, such as building relationships.
Overall, the main purpose of language is to give us a means to communicate with others.
So, if language is all about the message and communication, it’s really important that you communicate clearly.
Afterall, you don’t want people to misunderstand you when you’re delivering an important message.
Being clear when you write and talk, isn’t about having a huge vocabulary, knowing hundreds of idioms or having the best teacher.
It’s about using language which everyone understands.
The good news is this: many English speakers use common speech patterns when they speak.
When you know these patterns well enough, you’ll be able to use them automatically, and as a result, you’ll be able to communicate your messages clearly.
Finding these common speech patterns can take a lot of time. You need to become a kind of language researcher and analyse a large number of texts.
But in the end, it’s worth it because you’ll be speaking much clearer and easier than before.
But not everyone has the time and the knowledge to analyse conversations.
That’s why in my program, The Difference, I do the hard researching for you.
I analyse conversations and give you the language to learn. All you need to do is practise it.
Along the way, I’ll also be teaching you effective ways to study, practise and research, so that you can become an all-round better English speaker.
Are you ready to take the next step?
