Hello and welcome to Lingual Net’s Super Learner Fluency Course.
Do you want to speak English more fluently?
Maybe you want to improve your score on an interview test. Or you want to be more confident in everyday conversations? Or maybe you want to feel like English really is your language? That you can use it like a native speaker?
This course will help you! Lingual Net’s Super Learner Fluency Course is designed to help you become a more fluent, confident, and engaged speaker of English. The key is “engagement” – feeling like you belong, like you have something to contribute!
It doesn’t matter what your level of English proficiency is: this course will boost your level!
I’m Dr. Michael Rost. I’m a linguist and a language teacher, and a researcher. Over the course of my career I’ve had the opportunity to observe many successful language learners, in many different countries.
What is it that successful learners do?
I’ve been able to identify some “secrets” that turn an ordinary language learner into a “super learner.” These “secrets” are actually “open secrets” that are available to us all. They are strategies and study habits and memory routines that successful language learners use. And I’d like to share those “secrets”, so that you too can become a Super Learner.
In each module, we focus on one topic. The topic of this module is Hometown. We focus on five questions:
- Where’s your hometown?
- Do you miss your hometown? What do you like about it?
- What would you recommend that a visitor do or see in your hometown?
- Has your hometown changed much since you were a child?
- Do you think that the place where you grew up is important?
We will listen to three different interviews, where the students are asked these same five questions. And we’re going to focus on their communication strategies. And then we’re going to follow up with some study skills in pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary.
Welcome to the course.
Let’s get started.
