Have you ever watched a series in English?
Or a TV show?
Or a movie?
Bet you have.
But…have you ever watched it with subtitles?
In your own language?
If you hear something in English, but you read something in another language, that creates a disconnect in your mind. Your ears hear one thing, but your eyes see another. You will be translating instead of staying in the English world.
Try this instead.
Switch the subtitles to English.
This way, your eyes and ears will be working together. They will match up and this will help you dive even deeper into English vocabulary and pronunciation. You will hear words, then see them, and remember them easier – not only what they mean, but also how they sound.
If you’d like to get more free tips and tricks to help you feel more confident in English, join me on December 13 for my free, 5-day MOVE THAT MOUTH challenge! I’ve got a daily lesson and worksheet for you which will help you learn what native speakers do so naturally, and clear assignments which will show you true progress at the end of the challenge.
So, darling, what are you waiting for? Your first assignment is waiting for you!
Hundreds of people have already signed up and shared their ‘before’ videos with me. I am so proud of them for showing me their ‘starting point’ in English, even though they might not always feel comfortable about it. This is true honesty, and it means everything to me that people are really giving this their true commitment. After the challenge is over, they will make an ‘after’ video to show me just how far they have come!
I hope to welcome you, too!
Have a super weekend – there won’t be a newsletter on Monday, as I’ll be focussing on the Move That Mouth Challenge members.
