" **English Can Be Simple and Easy

One day, a student from Paraguay came to my class.  She could not
speak English.  In her country, she studied many years--
mostly grammar.  Many years of classes. Many years of textbooks.
Many years paying schools a lot of money.

But she could not speak.

The first day in my class, she was shy.  She came with a textbook,
-- ready to study grammar.


  I surprised her-- because I never used the textbook.
  I never used the textbook, and I never taught grammar. 
  I never used the textbook, and I never taught grammar. 


Instead, I told her a story.  I told the story many times.  As
I told the story, I asked many questions.  She answered them. 
She was confused,... Why was this crazy teacher telling stories and
asking so many questions!?


  Then I asked HER to tell the story-- she was shocked and
  amazed-- she could do it! 


After only two weeks in my class, her friends were amazed. 
They asked her, "How are you improving so quickly?"



**Why Grammar Study Is Bad


In school, teachers told you to study grammar.  They told you that
grammar was the key to learning English.  They were totally wrong.

  Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. 

In fact, studying grammar is the worst thing to do.  Grammar
study will destroy your English speaking ability. 

Why?  Because grammar study makes you think too much.  You
don't want to think about speaking English, you want to speak
quickly-- without thinking.

There is a lot of research about this topic-- and it all agrees-
grammar study is terrible.  Grammar study destroys your ability
to think in English.  You will never speak English easily if you
continue to study grammar.



**RULE 2: Don't Study Grammar


Angelina quickly improved speaking-- when she stopped studying
grammar.  This is your second rule. 

  Stop studying grammar.
  Stop studying grammar. 

Right now.  Stop.  Put away your grammar books and textbooks. 
You don't need them. "

WAIT FOR THE NEXT DAYS LUV U ^^
