Learn some tips to help overcome the difficulties you might be experiencing, using some of the simplest methods to improve your English communication skills. 

In This course you will know how to:

  • select your words
  • form sentences quickly
  • understand and answer different types of questions
  • speak more clearly
  • sharpen your listening comprehension skills
  • share stories
  • get better at small talk
  • use common expressions and idioms
  • understand Kiwi slang

The most important thing for you to improve the fluency of your speech, is to learn English in phrases or chunks of language, instead of memorising grammar rules. This course is not designed to explain grammar rules, but to listen and take note of the many phrases used during your conversations. There might come a time when you can use one particular sentence with little, or no alteration at all. Unfortunately, many people learn words by heart, but have no idea how to use them in a sentence. It is such a relief not having to worry about whether the sentence is correct grammatically or not. When speaking in a foreign language, you might be so focused on what you are saying and whether it is correct or not, that you forget to listen to what others are saying. This is a big mistake as they might be using the exact words or grammar you will be needing later on. So pay attention to what is being said around you, it is your most important resource at the time of speaking to someone.
