Most English Learners have a problem.  Maybe you have it, too.

 

The problem is that most people really want to improve their English, but they don’t know the best way to do it.  Maybe you’ve had English classes on and off for years, and maybe you’ve tried lessons in the past, but you can’t seem to get past an intermediate level.

 

Well today’s email is about a really powerful solution to that problem:



Passive Practice



What’s passive practice?   Well “passive” means listening and reading (while speaking and writing are the “active” skills).



So why is passive practice so important?  Because of these reasons:



  1. It’s free 

  2. You can do it any time  (at home, at work, in the car, even in bed)!

  3. There is almost no limit to how much passive practice you can get!

Let me explain.  While it can be difficult to find the time for lessons or studying, passive practice can be done in the times when you are already doing something else — any time that your hands are busy but your mind is not.  



For example, you can:


-listen to a podcast on the way to work, or while cleaning your home


-watch an English movie while relaxing in the evening



Some English practice needs a time in your calendar, but passive practice can be done almost anytime! 



Think about your week.  When are your hands busy but not your mind?  Those are the times for passive practice.  Comment below with one time during the week when you can implement passive practice that won’t use any “extra” time out of your schedule. 



Really, I want you to tell me.  And I know from experience that the ones who DO comment and tell me are MUCH more likely to actually improve their English.
