Becky: Alright, so why’s speaking the #1 weakness among most 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 online articles.
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: ...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 grow...
Becky: Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. It’s like working out one muscle, which gets stronger...
Peter: ...and ignoring another one which stays small and weak. This is usually why speaking is a weakness for learners.
Becky: Alright, so listeners, if you want your speaking skills to improve...
Peter: ...You need to spend more of your study time on speaking. Here are 5 ways you can start right now.
Becky: Number one is obvious. Simply get a native speaking tutor to practice with.
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: Our Top 25 Questions Series, Survival Phrases and much more.
Becky: Number four: Shadowing. Meaning, repeat the dialogues as you hear them.
Peter: In every lesson, you learn a new conversation. So try to shadow the conversation line by line. Premium and Premium PLUS users, use 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...
Peter: ...as well as our entire language learning system. Now’s the time.

Hola Gringo Viejo,


Don't worry! We will help through that journey.

The best way is reading any book you already know in you language, so you 're in the right path.

Just keep practice to built up your skill to feel confident enough to speak Spanish.


Saludos,

Carla

No tengo nadie con quien hablar, asi he comprado una Santa Biblia y a causa de entiendo que significado, mi comprension mejora. Tambien hice toda mi tarea de spanishpod101 en voz alta. Todavia tengo miedo a hablar, pero no importa, voy a seguir intentando. Estoy agradecido por la ayuda y amabilidad de spanishpod101 familia


Traduccion: I don't have anyone to talk to, so I bought a Spanish Bible and because I know what it says, my comprehension improves. Also I do all my spanishpod101 homework aloud. Still I'm afraid to talk, but even so I'm going to keep trying. I'm grateful for the help and kindness of the spanishpod101 family.
