Hello and welcome to Lingual Net’s Super Learner Fluency Course.
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 different learners, in many different countries. As you probably know, language learning is not easy – in fact, most learners do not reach a high level of fluency. Language learning for most learners is hard work – and of course they get a lot of benefits from studying a new language! It’s good for your development just to study another language and appreciate other cultures.
But you may want more than this! Maybe you want to become fluent in English.
Maybe you want to improve your score on an interview test? Or you want to be more confident in everyday conversations? Or maybe you just want to feel that special satisfaction of being able to communicate in English?!
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. It doesn’t matter what your level of English proficiency is: this course will boost your level!
In each module, we focus on one topic. The topic of this module is work. We focus on five questions:
- Do you have a job now? What is your job?
- Why did you choose this job?
- Do you get along well with your colleagues? What is the key to getting along with colleagues?
- Do you plan to keep this job?
- How has technology changed the way we work?
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.
