Description

Are you tired of boring, slow-speaking English lessons that don't teach you the way that natives really speak? Do you wanna learn how English is spoken in the real world?

In this podcast, Ethan, Andrea, and Justin—your American and British Fluency Coaches will take you beyond the classroom and help you live, learn, and SPEAK English in the real world through fun, natural, conversational lessons that will rapidly teach you:
- To understand fast-speaking natives
- The vocabulary, phrasal verbs, idioms, and slang that you actually need to know
- Native pronunciation and connected speech (how we natives cut and connect our words in a predictable way)
- American and British English and their differences
Above all, we'll help you develop the mindset, the method, and the mastery to live your English in the real world!

In today's podcast episode, we are talking about differences in schooling in the USA, UK and Australia. It's actually pretty shocking how different they are in these three English speaking countries. We will explain what the journey looks like through the schooling system in each country and important terms and vocabulary that you need to know related to this. You might find this especially helpful if you plan on studying abroad or applying to a university in an English-speaking country. Show notes here. ..........

Shannon Kennedy, from eurolinguiste.com, is an American entrepreneur, content creator, language learner and musician based in California. She's a language expert and writer on various language learning platforms, such as Fluent in 3 Months and Drops, where she shares tips and challenges to help learners apply the concepts of minimalism to maximize their efficiency. Shannon is also a professional jazz musician and started studying European languages, such as Spanish, Italian and German while taking her Master's Degree in Musicology. I just am absolutely blown away by Shannon's ability to study 5+ languages simultaneously on top of working, running her own project, and spending time with family. That said, this interview will give you tons of ideas for how you can improve your skills in English or start learning another language, even if you are very busy and have hardly any time. Shannon told me about some of her favorite tools and systems that she uses to organize her learning in all of her different languages. There's a lot here that I want to try applying to my own learning, and I'm sure you will, too. She discusses why motivation is not important, and what actually is really essential. Shannon, like myself, is an introvert, and we discussed tips that can help you speak languages even if you are shy or introverted. She shared how you can get the most out of your course book and other resources. We also talked about what fluency is. I found her answer pretty surprising and fascinating. So there is a ton of useful information in this interview—you may want to grab a pen and paper! Now ladies and gents, let's get into episode 7 of Beyond Borders. Show notes here. ..........

“I don't have time for English.” “I have so many things to do.” “Work is busy.” “I have lots of university assignments.” “In my free time, I want to relax, not be thinking about English.” Do you ever say these things to yourself? Do you not have time to learn English? We understand how you feel. We’ve felt the same way too learning other languages and we’ve combated that with a few tricks to never let a day pass without learning and practicing the languages we learn. In this podcast lesson, we are going to give you some tips and some strategies to help you make English a part of your everyday life. Show notes here. ..........

Christina Lorimer, christinalorimer.com, is an English instructor, materials writer, academic consultant, and entrepreneur. She is a specialist in English as a second language and has worked with NGOs and immigrant refugees for many years. She dedicates her work to support language learners in overcoming internal and systemic barriers to become confident English speakers. We talked about her experience helping immigrants in California to learn English and overcome strong emotional barriers, and her advice that could help you overcome your own limits to speak. We discussed her feeling depressed the first time that she lived outside of the United States, and the importance of having a support network. Also why going to an English speaking country will not be the magic pill to help you speak fluently. It was interesting hearing her perspectives on culture shock and reverse culture shock when returning to the USA. Christina also gave advice for English teachers to stay relevant in 2021 and beyond. Her language journey started with Spanish, but Christina also speaks Brazilian Portuguese fluently. Through her Youtube Channel, she teaches English in Portuguese and helps learners just like you with their dream of learning English in a simple and fun way. Show notes here. ..........

On her YouTube channel, English Fluency Journey, she shares her own journey to get to a native level of English, and her continued journey learning English.

But, as she says, English fluency is not a destination, it is a journey, and so she sees it as something that she will be learning her entire life. Show notes here. ..........

You'll learn about how we often don’t pronounce some words, how we reduce others and how we change some sounds in order to flow more naturally with our speech.

At the end, we put ourselves to the test with the classic “Betty Botter bought some butter“ tongue twister. So, stick till the end to check that out and give it a go yourself!

In this episode of the show I had an amazing conversation with Hadar Shemesh, an incredibly skilled and insightful accent and fluency coach from Israel. She moved to NYC when she was 21 to pursue acting, where she worked as a bartender at a Jazz club to support herself. According to her, she used to get criticized because of her strong Israeli accent, but acting helped her become a "diligent speech student." We start off talking about how we can often feel uncomfortable speaking a foreign language because we can't express our identity, and her experience of this while living in New York. We discuss why it is less important than you think to speak like a native, and much more important to discover how to speak like yourself. We cover extensively about native-speakerism and discrimination towards English learners and non-native teachers, and how you can overcome imposter syndrome and share your passion with the world. No matter where you are on your language learning journey, whether you are a non-native teacher or a student, you will get a lot out of this interview. So, let's jump in! Show notes here. ..........

Ethan, Andrea and Ollie are back together in the virtual studio to discuss words used in English that come from other languages in English. These are called loanwords and are very common in everyday (and not so everyday) speech. You’re also probably using some of these loanwords in your native language too. An important aspect of using these words is knowing how to pronounce them, as a few of them have special sounds.
