Peter: Alright, Chigusa, you’re a native Japanese speaker, so here’s a question for you.
Chigusa: Yes, go ahead.
Peter: Imagine you’re speaking in Japanese with a learner...
Chigusa: Alright.
Peter: How can you tell if they’re good or... if they’re still a beginner?
Chigusa: Hmmm. Based on HOW they talk and respond if I ask them something.
Peter: What do you mean by that?
Chigusa: Well, if they start pausing, searching for words. If there’s a delay... I know they’re a beginner. So I go easy on them. But if they respond quickly, then that means they understood what I said..
Peter: ...which means their Japanese is at a pretty high level, right?
Chigusa: Yes, most of the time, that’s the case.
Peter: And what about the accent?
Chigusa: Not so important. As long as you’re understood, you’re good to go.
Peter: So, listeners, there are a few reasons why you should learn to speak faster and ...with confidence.
Chigusa: First, you generally sound better...
Peter: Two, if you can respond quickly, it means you understand what you hear...
Chigusa: ...and that means your language skills are quite good.
Peter: And three - this is the best one - native speakers will treat you differently....
Chigusa: ...because they can see you put in the work to speak the language.
Peter: So, here’s how you do it, listeners. One: Read out loud. This is a basic rule but it’s a must.
Chigusa: Yes, because if you’re reading out loud, you’re essentially practicing
speaking.
Peter: So, when you’re taking our lessons, read the dialogue out loud - as you hear it.
Chigusa: And you can read along with the dialog tool, the lesson notes, or the transcript.
Peter: Two: Read like a child reads their first book. So, picture a child learning to read.
Chigusa: Right! First they go slow... and sound everything out.
Peter: On the second or third try, they’re now at a normal pace.
Chigusa: And on the fourth or fifth try, they can read it all quickly.
Peter: So, this example applies to language learning. If you’ve ever come across a complex sentence...
Chigusa: ...read it slowly, then speed up, and then you’ll be able to say it easily.
Peter: And again, you can do this with our lessons. Just read along - out loud - as you listen or watch a lesson.
Chigusa: Three: Use the Dialogue Breakdown Tool.
Peter: Listeners, this tool breaks down the lesson conversations... into individual lines.
Chigusa: You can listen to the audio for each line, you get the meanings...
Peter: And you can re-read and review as much as you want.
Chigusa: Four: Use the voice recorder to record and compare yourself with native speakers.
Peter: Just click on the microphone icon next to each line in the Dialogue section.
Chigusa: You can also use this to perfect your pronunciation if you want...
Peter: ...but the goal here is just to speak at a confident, native-level speed.
Chigusa: You’ll find this tool in the Dialogue section for all of our lessons.
Peter: Five: Repeat and review old lesson conversations as much as possible.
Chigusa: Reaching native level speed takes a few tries...
Peter: ...so if you download the lesson dialog tracks, you can re-listen to the conversations again and again. Or you can re-read the dialog lines...
Chigusa: ...until you’ve mastered them all.
Peter: Six: Shadow the conversations. Repeat what you’ve heard out loud.
Chigusa: Listeners, this tactic is important...
Peter: ...But it is tricky when you’re doing a brand new lesson....
Chigusa: ...Because you’re not used to the conversation.
Peter: But when you’re reviewing dialogs from lessons you’ve done...
Chigusa: ....Then, it gets super easy to do. So, just listen to the dialog and repeat what you hear.
Peter: Seven: Send recordings to your Premium PLUS teacher for feedback.
Chigusa: If you want to speak with confidence....
Peter: ...then there’s no better confidence boost than feedback from a native speaker.
Chigusa: And you get just that with a Premium PLUS teacher.
Peter: You can record yourself reciting a lesson dialog, or any dialog of your own...
Chigusa: ...and your teacher will give you specific tips on how to improve.
Peter: So, listeners, take these tips, choose at least 1...and practice, practice, practice.
Chigusa: Yeah, being able to respond quickly, speaking with confidence... it’s not something you get on your first try...
Peter: But, it’s something you can EASILY get with a few tries. And remember...
