Peter: Hi everyone! Peter here.
Body
Peter: So listeners, last year, we sent out a survey to learn about your language progress..
Chigusa: ...what features you like, don’t like, your strengths, weaknesses...
Peter: ...and there was one question that asked you to rate yourself...
Chigusa: ...Yes, on Listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Peter: Chigusa, over 70% answered that their biggest weakness is: Speaking.
Chigusa: Wow, that’s a lot.
Peter: It is. And there’s a specific reason why. We’ll get into it in just a second.

Chigusa: Alright, so why’s speaking the #1 weakness for most learners?
Peter: So, Chigusa, when people first start learning a language, how do you think they start?
Chigusa: Hmm. They usually start with reading? Or, maybe they’ll watch a video on YouTube.
Peter: Exactly. So, either they have a book or they’re watching a video.
Chigusa: Yeah, just passively taking the language in.
Peter: Now, if you spend most of your time reading or watching videos... What do you get better at?
Chigusa: Hmm, well if you’re just reading, you only get better at reading.
Peter: And if you’re watching videos, maybe you’ll remember 1 or 2 words... but your speaking skills… it’s going to be hard to grow them.
Chigusa: Yeah, that makes a lot of sense. It’s like working out one muscle which gets stronger, and ignoring other ones which stay small.
Peter: Exactly. And the point is, most learners avoid speaking. Maybe they don’t have the opportunity to… it’s also an environmental challenge too. It’s hard to get good at it when you don’t have the time to put in.
Chigusa: So listeners, if you want your speaking skills to improve...
Peter: ...You need to start speaking. And, here are 7 ways you can start right now.
Chigusa: Number one is obvious. Get a native speaking tutor to practice with.
Peter: Now, most people don’t have access to teachers or native speakers.
Chigusa: That’s true. Or, they don’t have the time to meet with one.
Peter: But with our Premium PLUS plan...
Chigusa: ...you get your very own teacher .
Peter: You can practice speaking by recording yourself, and having them review it.
Chigusa: And one popular tactic is to talk about your day. You’d send 3 recordings...
Peter: ...one in the morning, one in the afternoon, and one at night...
Chigusa: Your teacher reviews it and then gives you corrections and feedback.
Peter: Number two: Get conversation-based lessons in our lesson library.
Chigusa: If you visit the lesson library...
Peter: ...you can sort lessons by Conversation, Reading, Writing, Vocab, Grammar or Culture.
Chigusa: So, select conversations...
Peter: ...and you’ll get lessons that expose you to conversations and get you speaking.
Chigusa: Number three: Read out loud.
Peter: So, if you're listening to a lesson and reading along with the notes...
Chigusa: ...Read out loud.
Peter: Then re-read and speed up your tempo. This is such a powerful tactic because...
Chigusa: ...if you’re reading out loud, you’re practicing your speaking skills.
Peter: And, if you increase your reading speed, you’ll also be able to talk faster and with confidence.
Chigusa: So, practice over and over until you can speak faster.
Peter: Number four: Prepare things to say ahead of time.
Chigusa: Most learners, especially beginners, run out of things to say...
Peter: But, if you prepare lines ahead of time, you won’t run out of things to say.
Chigusa: Listeners, you can start speaking with prepared lines from our 3 Minute Video lessons...
Peter: Or Top 25 Questions lessons, Survival Phrases ...
Chigusa: ...and other lessons that you’ll find in the lesson library.
Peter: Number five: Shadow conversations.
Chigusa: Meaning, repeat the dialogues as you hear them.
Peter: In every lesson, you learn a new conversation.
Chigusa: So try to shadow the conversation line by line.
Peter: Premium and Premium PLUS users, follow along with our Dialog study tool...
Chigusa: ...and you’ll master it in no time.
Peter: Number six: Use our voice recording tool to practice speaking.
Chigusa: You can practice lines from our lesson conversations....
Peter: ...and you can compare yourself to native speakers, to see how close you are.
Chigusa: You’ll find the Voice Recording Tools inside the Dialog section of every audio lesson.
Peter: Number seven: Review again and again. Listeners, this is the key to perfection...
Chigusa: ...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.
Chigusa: 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, then act now.
