At English Today, we push our clients to acquire skills outside the boundaries of traditional learning methods. Our courses highlight the importance of speaking and developing confidence while discussing possibilities and solutions that meet business objectives. Our programs are a hybrid of soft skills and ESL ( English as a Second Language) materials that promote interactive participation between all participants.
This ensures that our clients can verbally express topics and thoughts in an effective manner regarding topics such as the current state of their business and their desired outcomes. Our trainers’ role is to supervise, give insights, and broaden the participants’ perspectives beyond the training context.
If it were the other way around – with the trainer spending most of the time speaking and lecturing about the same old grammatical rules while students listen and jot down notes – they would not be able to learn from their mistakes and would find it difficult to develop.
The good new is that learning to improve speaking skills without having to re-learn grammar can be done in several ways:
- 1) Practice role-play scenarios in group settings. One of the keys to becoming a fluent English speaker is forcing yourself to actually use English. Being outside the comfort zone trains your mind and activates your English speaking skills. Furthermore, it gives learners direct exposure in understanding vocabulary use, accents, and pronunciation.
- 2) Preparing industry specific vocabulary and putting it into use. The larger your vocabulary bank is, the easier you will be to communicate your ideas. A well-trained teacher can provide a wider meaning to all the vocabulary terms and applications in the work environment. By increasing your word comprehension, you can enhance your memorizing capability when facing new terms.
- 3) Reading articles aloud and recording voice. Reading out loud is like training to play football: it takes the same path from being a beginner to being an expert. Scientifically, when learners speak out loud (and listen to themselves), speaking becomes easier because the oral muscles remember how to form the sounds. This process activates both the visual and auditory parts of brain muscles.
- 4) Learning through mistakes (and not focusing too much on grammar). Every fault and failure actually leads to development becasue, as the quote says “Great losses are great lessons”. Therefore, every learner is encouraged to make as many grammar mistakes as possible and to learn from them. It is actually essential to fail first in order to develop– and the English Today trainers will develop a comfortable learning environment where learners can refine their skills and be shown the right direction of language usage.
