Are you tired of studying English grammar without being able to speak it? Do you need to speak English fluently to advance your career or business? Do you want to speak English fluently in record time? Then this book is for you! This is a compact book encompasses the method I have developed after over more than a decade of research and experimentation. Countless people struggle to learn to speak English, but do not achieve their goal. They study grammar for years, take exams and pay a lot of money for books and courses that simply perpetuate the learning experience. Why is it that the traditional model of grammar, reading, writing and then speaking doesn’t work? Because that's not how you learn a language naturally. We learn by listening, speaking, reading, writing and then, if we are interested enough in the subject we study linguistics. You're probably a professional who, even though you may be able to read texts in English, are unsure when the time comes to speak. I understand that you have to be able to socialize and negotiate in international circles with confidence. This book will give you the tools you need to boost your oral communication, increase your confidence in using English, improve understanding, reach fluency, socialize on international stages and achieve a good level of communication and negotiation. How can I be so sure of your ability to learn to speak English? You speak at least one language, right? If you are able to speak one language, you can speak two or three or four ... all you need is practice, practice and more practice - but you must practice the right things! And you need to be in shape! Think of your study as bodybuilding and your tutor as your coach. Consistency is the key and practice makes perfect. It will take time, require dedication, willpower and sacrifice; you have to push your brain to the limit. You may be tempted to quit. But I assure you, when you reach your fluency goal, it will all be worth it.
