Day 6: How To Learn Idioms & Slang..

Soleh Sugianto Hi again :) It's us, your English teachers... with another rule! We want you to think about something today: You have studied English for more than 4 years- why do you still have trouble understanding native speakers?

Nothing is wrong with you. Something is wrong with the schools you went to, and the textbooks you used. English textbooks and audio tapes are horrible.

You never learned real conversational English. You never learned casual English- the kind of English we use in normal conversations.
You learned TEXTBOOK English. "Your teaching is excellent! I´m very grateful to you. Thank you!"
--Milan Hodac, Czech Republic **How To Understand Native Speakers

Megdelio studied English for 5 years in Venezuela. Teachers said he was an advanced student.

When he came to the USA he felt good. He was excited to meet Americans. He was ready. He wrote:

"One day I tried to talk to an American woman and everything changed. The woman started…

But Miyuki had a problem. She couldn't USE the grammar in a real conve…

Obama's Speech: Winning & Inauguration

Winning Speech


If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible; who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time; who still questions the power of our democracy, tonight is your answer.

It's the answer told by lines that stretched around schools and churches in numbers this nation has never seen; by people who waited three hours and four hours, many for the very first time in their lives, because they believed that this time must be different; that their voices could be that difference.

It's the answer spoken by young and old, rich and poor, Democrat and Republican, black, white, Hispanic, Asian, Native American, gay, straight, disabled and not disabled - Americans who sent a message to the world that we have never been just a collection of individuals or a collection of Red States and Blue States: we are, and always will be, the United States of America.

It's the answer that led…

**Rule 4: A Story

Hyun, a student from Korea, said:

"I'm a very serious student. When studying English in Korea, I memorized 50,000 English words for a big test. Fifty Thousand!

My problem was-- I couldn't USE them. I could pass an English test. But I could not understand native speakers.

With the Effortless English system, I learned to instantly understand English. I learned how to automatically use vocabulary. After 6 months, I could speak easily. I didn't need to think.

Thanks so much!"

**RULE 4: Slow, Deep Learning Is Best

Hyun learned a lot of words in a short time. Her learning was short and shallow. That's why she quickly forgot the words. That's why she could not use them…

Day 3: The Number One Secret

Most schools ignore it. "I should definitely confess that your lessons helped me a lot in improving!"
--Toussaint Zondi, France

**Rule 3: A Story Humberto is from Venezuela. He moved to Canada a few years ago. He studied English in Venezuela for many years-- mostly grammar. In fact, Humberto learned English with his eyes- by reading textbooks, by studying grammar books, by remembering word lists. He thought his English was good. But when he came to Canada he was surprised and shocked-- he couldn't understand anyone!

He joined an English school in Canada. He went to school everyday. What did they teach him? More textbooks, more grammar books, more word lists!

After 12 months of school, Humberto was angry and frustrated. The school cost over $10…

Day 2: Never Study Grammar

--Antoine Jean Penel, France

**Rule 2: A Story From Angelina

"My name is Angelina and I'm a student from Paraguay. When I started learning with A.J., I couldn't speak any English. I had studied English grammar many years, but I couldn't speak.

The first day with A.J.'s system I thought I would study grammar. However, he surprised me because he never taught grammar rules.

Instead, he told a story. He told it many times, in a strange way. He constantly asked questions, and I answered the questions. The questions were super-easy.

Honestly, I was a little confused. I thought he was kind of a crazy teacher :) I thought I needed to learn more grammar.

I continued with Effortless English and then, after …

What? Involvement, simply stated, is bringing participants into your presentation or meeting in ways that allow them to directly or indirectly add value. Involvement leads to engagement wherein your participants begin actively working towards the objectives for the session. Why? Involvement and engagement usually drive "buy-in" which in turn generates better actual outcomes - messages that are understood and acted upon, agreements that are actually implemented, and so on.
With few exceptions, the best solutions have input from a wide variety of people who are informed and engaged in the task.
Human nature drives people to support solutions they help create.
Involvement breeds involvement. You can significantly build involvement by participating yourself and encourage others to do the same.
On the downside, failure to involve key people brings substantial risks. Messages can be ignored, and decisions and plans can be derailed if the people who must implement them are …


Improve the Quality of Your ThinkingHuman beings are mental organisms. Everything we are or ever will be, will be as the direct result of the way we think. If we improve the quality of our thinking, we must improve the quality of our lives. And, there is no other way to do it.Youth and CreativityIn one series of I.Q. tests given to children age 2 - 4 years, 95% of the children were found to be highly creative with curious, questioning minds and an ability for abstract thinking.When the same children were tested again at age 7, only 5% still demonstrated high levels of creativity. In the ensuing years, they had learned to conform; "If you want to get along, you had better go along,"is what they had discovered.The Dangers of ConformityThey had learned to color between the lines, to sit in neat little rows, to do and say what the other kids did and said, and to do as they were told. Over time, they lost the wonderful fearless spontaneity of youth and learned to…

WE WILL NOT GO DOWN (Song for Gaza)

(Composed by Michael Heart)

A blinding flash of white light
Lit up the sky over Gaza tonight
People running for cover
Not knowing whether they’re dead or alive

They came with their tanks and their planes
With ravaging fiery flames
And nothing remains
Just a voice rising up in the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight

Women and children alike
Murdered and massacred night after night
While the so-called leaders of countries afar
Debated on who’s wrong or right

But their powerless words were in vain
And the bombs fell down like acid rain
But through the tears and the blood and the pain
You can still hear that voice through the smoky haze

We will not go down
In the night, without a fight
You can burn up our mosques and our homes and our schools
But our spirit will never die
We will not go down
In Gaza tonight
Download song in Here.

As a Human Being

It is hard to be born as a human being and hard to live the life of one.It is even harder to hear of the path and harder still to awake, to rise, and to follow.
Yet the teaching is simple: "Cease to do evil, learn to do good. And purify your mind."

Attitude and Successful

Attitude: Your Key to Success
If you can't change your fate, change your attitude. We all would like to be successful. Yet, many have thousands of reasons why they cannot succeed. In truth, all we need is one reason why we can. That one reason is attitude. Nothing is more important: not education, aptitude, health, wealth, or opportunity. Great men and women share this opinion. For example, Thomas Jefferson wrote “Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.” What is attitude? It is our disposition, perspective, viewpoint, or outlook. It is how we view the world. Frederick Langbridge expressed it well when he wrote, “Two men look out the same prison bars; one sees mud and the other stars.” What do you see? It’s almost as if we were wearing sunglasses. The glasses we choose to wear determine what we see. Polarizing glasses, for instance, can remove reflections and give u…

Personal Development: Keys to Finding Your Genius

by Jim Rohn (Excerpted from the Jim Rohn One-Year Success Plan)
Change Your Beliefs. It is up to you to do the work of changing your beliefs. And when you do you will be opening up new worlds - literally! Win the thought battle, which will help you keep negative beliefs out and positive beliefs and thoughts in. Feed your mind with information that will change your belief. But also ask yourself if you are doing that with belief. The truth is that you have an amazing mind with a capacity for learning that is beyond your comprehension. You must believe this. And when you do, you will be unlocking the potential of your mind!
Get the Right Knowledge. Words--if they are not true--are meaningless. I hear children say, "I read it in a book." But is it true? Just because someone says it or writes it, doesn't mean it is true. As learners, we want to get the right knowledge, not just information or opinions. It is our job to seek out information and knowledge and then …
