Enjoy English - to learn fast and speak English well

By: AJ Hoge
Let me start by saying that English should be easy and fun.
Yes, I know you were bored to death by English teachers in the past.  I know you studied grammar rules for years.  I know you listened to boring "conversations"--  which were actually bad actors reading aloud to each other. 
Because of all of this, you might think that English must be boring and painful.  Well, it's not. 
English is a tool for communication- that's all.   The key to enjoying English is to be sure that you are listening to INTERESTING communication.  
For example, I recently did a podcast (free audio show) about pronunciation, culture and identity.  Did you know that making friends with great English speakers can actually improve your pronunciation!  That sounds like more fun than doing pronunciation textbook drills!
In another recent podcast, I talked about a super-cool teacher named Dr. James Asher-- and how he uses actions, fun and movement to teach language. 
Students in his class walk, run, jump and move all of the time- they don't just sit on their butts and fall asleep.   I love Dr. Asher's method and that's why we teach you how to use movement and actions to improve faster. 
Look, however you choose to learn English, at least be sure to make it fun, interesting and full of action.  You wasted enough time in school sitting on your butt.  It's time to live a little! 
So my message to you is to stop boring yourself and start ENJOYING ENGLISH!  I know it's a crazy idea, but try it! 
You can start by listening to my free podcast.  I have hundreds of different audios (and a few videos) you can enjoy... all for free.  
If you have iTunes (free at:  http://apple.com/itunes ) you can even subscribe to the podcast and get every new audio automatically.  (Just go to the podcast link, then click "open in iTunes", then subscribe). 
Enjoy the podcast,... but more importantly,... ENJOY ENGLISH!
