    How to Speak English Fast with Advanced Grammar

    How to Speak English Fast with Advanced Grammar

    How can you speak English faster and more natural? You’ve probably heard English native speakers using contractions and connected speech with modal verbs like “woulda”, “coulda”, and “shoulda”. Taking words and kind of smashing them together is really common, and it can be difficult to understand when you hear it. It’s also probably intimidating to try to do yourself. 
    Trust me, understanding and using connected speech with modal verbs in advanced tenses doesn’t have to be that challenging. This lesson will teach you how to speak English fast with advanced grammar. I’m going to explain some common modal verbs in advanced tenses so that you can start using them now! By using this advanced grammar in your speech, it’s going to help you sound much more fluent and natural!
    An important part of learning is practice, so after you watch this video, go down to the comment section and answer this question: What is something you would have done yesterday, but didn’t do because you couldn’t? For example, I would’ve gone for a walk last night, but it was raining.
    IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE DIFFICULT TO USE CONNECTED SPEECH WITH MODAL VERBS Using advanced grammar feels awkward and complex. Maybe you’ve avoided it because it feels like it takes too long to express ideas with advanced grammar. Maybe you didn’t get much time to practice and truly understand how to use advanced grammar in your English class. Natives don’t use advanced tenses as often as simple tenses; but, they’re still very important and used on a daily basis!

    How to Think in English with Apps on Your Smartphone

    How to Think in English with Apps on Your Smartphone

    There are a lot of English learning apps out there (and I’ll share my favorite with you here), but what about using other, everyday apps in creative ways to improve our English fluency? You use apps on your smartphone every day, so how about using them to help you start thinking in English?
    HOW TO USE EVERYDAY APPS TO PRACTICE ENGLISH (AND START TO THINK IN ENGLISH) What if we used everyday apps to practice English? We can create a kind of immersion experience in English when we use apps that are and are not intended for language learning. How can we use language features on regular apps to improve our English? Which apps do you use on a daily basis? I’ll share the ones I use every day and how you can use them to improve your English and start thinking in English.

    Improve Your Listening and Speaking Skills

    As an English learner, you want to improve your listening and speaking skills. You’re in the right place! Listening skills are important for comprehension and speaking skills help you communicate with the world.
    HOW TO IMPROVE YOUR LISTENING AND SPEAKING SKILLS My students are always asking me (a native English speaker), are you speaking at a normal speed? Do you speak more slowly when you teach English? Well, the answer is yes — and no! The speed and way we speak English changes depending on the situation. Also, it depends on the person and their regional accent.

    CONDITIONALS: First vs. Second | Advanced English Grammar Practice

    CONDITIONALS: First vs. Second | Advanced English Grammar Practice

    I’m sure most of you know that it’s correct to say I was, she was, he was, it was in the simple past. But, did you know that there is a time that you should say I were, she were, he were, and it were? There is, and today you’re going to learn when and how to do that!
    So, what are the 1st and 2nd conditionals?
    Here’s an example of the first conditional. If I have time, I will call you. This is a true statement, and I believe it could really happen.
    Now, here’s the second conditional. If I had time, I would call you. In this case, I am expressing my desire to call you, but because I used the second conditional, that means that I don’t think I will have time, and therefore will not be able to call you. A lot of times, we think of the first conditional as a real conditional and the second conditional as unreal because the speaker believes that what they’re saying is unlikely, or even impossible, to happen.
