Listening is the KEY to good speaking...
•Did you know that the best way to learn vocabulary is to learn it with your ears so you can use it quickly while speaking? listening English lessons are 3-4 times more powerful than reading lessons.
•Listening English is the most important part to learn English or any other language and also an important aspect in communication. For English beginners, it is sometimes hard to control the speed of speech and clearness of listening and the characteristics of the speakers. That's why you should start listening to that English which can be understood easily, and when you become a good listener, you could understand that English which is being spoken on BBC and CNN. In ELP's Lessons, it is mainly focused that all lessons should be understandable to all learners.
•English itself is a language of communication. The main purpose of learning English is to communicate with each other. English is useful, it is widely used all over the world. Now in many important international conferences, English is one of the main working languages that United Nations adopts. English is a common language between 80% of people. Good listening is compulsory for communication. If one can not listen clearly to what others say, how can he express himself? Of course he can't communicate with the world. Similarly, the world can’t know what he wants. By this good communication can’t be built!
Before becoming a good speaker, one should become a good listener first
ELP's lessons are easily understandable, every word and phrase is very clear that you understand without even focusing on the audio. Like you understand your 1st language
As we all know, there are great differences between oral English and written English, so if we have any chance, we should manage to talk with the visitors from English---speaking countries, but it’s not possible all the time, it’s very hard to find a native English speaker in Asian countries. And if by chance someone finds a native English speaker, so he couldn’t manage to talk him for improving his English.
Speaking in any language is all about imitating other people. You want to be able to speak like native speakers do. Before you can form your own correct sentences, you first need to listen lots of similar ones.
When you speak in your native language, you don't have to think about the grammar or the words you use. Your brain uses sentences you have already heard. If you want to speak English language fluently, you have to learn it the way you learned your mother-language - by LISTENING English. Input of correct sentences again and again will make you a great speaker of English..
Listening English helps you develop language intuition. It's all about putting lots of correct sentences in your head. Then your brain can imitate them, then you make similar sentence to express the meaning you want. When you listen a lot, listen new words, you start to use new words and phrases in your speaking. Not only that, you will develop language intuition. You will start to feel which sentence in right and which is wrong. - Like you do in your native language.
You need more time to spend on listening to understandable English. If you want to become a good speaker by learning English with the help of grammar, then you can be a speaker, but not a fluent and great speaker. It takes lots of time to build a sentence when you have to think of grammar rules. For example, you are talking to someone or giving a presentation in English- you don't have time to think grammar rules for making correct sentences. At that time you have to speak as fast as you speak your 1st language. Learning English by listening English is the only way to achieve fluency.
Listening English is more beneficial - it helps you improve your pronunciation and conversational skills without learning grammar rules and memorizing them.
In ELP's lessons, you get transcripts of every single lesson. Whenever you don't understand a word, you check it in the transcription and understand at the same time. So you don't have to worry about new words in ELP's lessons. Every word/idiom/slang is deeply explained in "Explanation Lessons" of every lesson. That makes it more easy and interesting to continue with these audio lessons.
Listening English every day
You have to listen every day in order to learn English deeply, that is why in every lesson of ELP, everything is understandable and meaningful to you, and the voices of the speakers are very pleasant. This way you will enjoy listening and you won't get bore.
In every language center and courses, listening is neglected. Every English teacher put great emphasis memorizing grammar rules. That's why 98% of English learners can't speak English. In communicative classes, speech is also emphasized. But listening is rarely stressed.
Listening English is the most important part to learn English. Listening is how babies learn their native language. Listening is where speaking ability comes from. For sure, every English learner wants to speak. But speaking is a result of input-- and the input is listening English
