  • Hi, I'm Vanessa from SpeakEnglishWithVanessa.com.  

  • Are you ready to learnsecret? Let's talk about it

  • Today, you are going to learn the number one  secret guaranteed to help you speak English  

  • fluently in only 30 days. That's right, in only  30 days you will know everything you need to know  

  • to be able to speak fluently, and dazzle  other people with your amazing English skills.  

  • Are you ready to learn the number  one secret? Stay tuned to find out

  • Okay, here it is. Are you ready? The secret is...  

  • What did you think I was going to say? Is there  a secret to learning English fluently in 30 days?  

  • No, there is no secret that can  guarantee that you will learn English  

  • in only 30 days. A lot of programs make this bold  claim so that you will purchase their product,  

  • watch their video. And, frankly, it's quite  dishonest. In English, we have a phrase,  

  • maybe this exists in your native language too, "If  something is too good to be true, it probably is."  

  • That means if something seems perfect, there's  probably a problem with it. It's probably lying  

  • to you. Sometimes this can be really frustratingespecially if you spend a lot of time and money  

  • hoping that that bold claim will be true. But hold on, I'm not here to figuratively rain  

  • on your English learning parade. It may be true  that perfect fluency is not achievable in 30 days,  

  • but that doesn't mean that you can't become  fluent. It just means that your English journey  

  • is going to take a little longer or look a little  different than you expect. And that's great.  

  • There's no perfect way, no set time frame, or  exact learning style that's going to work for  

  • everyone. I'm here today to help you break  out of that mindset and also to help you  

  • along on your English journey to fluency. But do you know what? Let's use a different  

  • word than fluency. Fluency feels  like there is a definite end point.  

  • Like when you take an exam, the exam is finishedand you receive a grade, and that's it. You're  

  • finished. But learning a language isn't  like that. Instead of achieving fluency,  

  • I want to use the word confidence. To achieve  confidence speaking in English, because this  

  • is something real, something that you can feelYou can feel your confidence growing the more  

  • that you learn and the more that you practiceSo, you'll know that you're actually improving  

  • when you feel your confidence improving too. Do you remember when you were a kid and you  

  • tried to ride a bike for the first time? Or  roller blade or roller skate for the first time?  

  • You were probably a little bit wobbly and  uncertain. You probably fell a lot. Probably  

  • got hurt. Hopefully, not too badly. Well, this  takes time, and a lot of practice and effort,  

  • also making a lot of mistakes. Falling  down and learning how to balance yourself

  • Well, learning English is quite similar to  that, except you don't need to wear a helmet,  

  • I don't think so. If you are a beginnernow, it will take you longer to be able to  

  • speak English confidently. If you are an  intermediate or advanced English learner,  

  • well, with daily practice speaking weekly withteacher, or some other English learners it will  

  • take less time for you to be able to feel like you  can speak English confidently. A big determining  

  • factor is how much time and effort you put in  to exercising those English speaking muscles

  • Do you know this fable or tale of The Hare and The  Tortoise? Or sometimes we say The Tortoise and The  

  • Hare. The tortoise is a turtle. A hare is a wild  rabbit. In this story, they're going on a race,  

  • and the rabbit or the hare is so certain  that he's going to win. Rabbits are fast,  

  • turtles are slow, it's just a fact. So, the hare  starts running and running, and then he thinks,  

  • "I can take a nap. It's fine. I'll stop. Maybe  I'll go eat some lunch. I'll take another nap,"  

  • and he gets distracted. But what does that  tortoise do? The tortoise just goes slow  

  • and steady, never stopping, but is determined  to make it to the end, slow and steady

  • Can you guess who wins the race? Well, of coursethe tortoise wins the race. And I think that this  

  • is a wonderful example of what it means to learn  English. If you are steady, you are consistent and  

  • dedicated. "Every day, I'm going to do something  with English. Maybe it's just listen to a song in  

  • English because I don't have much time todayOr maybe it's watch one of Vanessa's lessons.  

  • Or maybe it's watch a full movie in English."  Doing something dedicated consistently in English  

  • will help you achieve confidence much quicker. The problem with the promise fluency in 30 days  

  • is that you feel so much pressure. All right,  I need to achieve fluency in 30 days or else I  

  • lose. And it kind of feels like after 30 daysyou won't need to do anything else ever again.  

  • Well, this can feel like a lot of pressure because  first of all, like we talked about, it is not  

  • possible to become fluent or speak confidently  in 30 days. But also, that feeling of, "I lost.  

  • I failed at learning English because  I couldn't learn it in 30 days,"  

  • that is a terrible feeling and will absolutely  not help you to achieve your goals in English.  

  • This is your journey. I want to help you  to continue to slow and steady feel and  

  • more confident in English without feeling  like mistakes are a problem. Mistakes are  

  • important. They are inevitable. You cannot avoid  mistakes. That is an essential part of learning

  • So, while 30 days may be too short oftime for you to become a confident speaker,  

  • 30 days is a great amount of time for building  daily habits. If you do something for 30 days,  

  • great, it will become a normal part of your lifeSo, I would love to give you some suggestions

  • Suggestion number one, schedule a certain time  each day for English. Make sure that this is  

  • realistic. You cannot say, "I will study for four  hours after I come home from work every day." Do  

  • you know what's going to happen after one weekmaybe less? We call this burnout. You will burn  

  • out. That means you will become so exhausted, and  you will be annoyed at learning English. You won't  

  • want to do it anymore. So, make sure that you set  a realistic time, 15 minutes, 30 minutes. Set this  

  • time aside and make it the most important  thing that you want to accomplish that day

  • For that 15 or 30 minutes, you can play a podcast  in English while you are commuting to work.  

  • If you don't commute, you could listen to  a podcast while you're cooking breakfast,  

  • while you're folding the laundry, while you're  taking a walk around your neighborhood. You can  

  • just spend that time doing something with EnglishOr you could subscribe to my YouTube channel,  

  • I have over 300 English lessons. Maybe  you have not seen all of them. So,  

  • you could watch one lesson per day, that's  about 30 minutes each day, immerse yourself  

  • in English and learn something new. GreatAnd I hope you will enjoy it at the same time

  • My first tip was to set aside a specific amount  of time every day. My second tip is to surround  

  • yourself with English. Even if you're not in an  English speaking country, you can still do this.  

  • You can find fun and creative ways to immerse  yourself. Here are some of my suggestions.  

  • You can change the language settings on your  phone, or on your browser on the computer.  

  • That means that just as you are looking at  news articles, or as you are reading a recipe,  

  • whatever you're doing on your phone, all of  the text is going to be in English. Simple,  

  • effective, and doesn't take any extra time. You could also take some sticky notes,  

  • or little pieces of paper with tape and put  them around your house to label different items.  

  • Write a full sentence, and this will help you  to be able to see English and have your brain  

  • switch over to English for that moment. You could  read your favorite books in English. If you need  

  • any recommendations for good books in English,  I love reading, so I have made, I think, four  

  • videos about book recommendations. You can check  out this one up here, which is beginner books

  • Or if you have never read a book in English before  I recommend starting with those books. You can  

  • check out that link up here to get some ideasOr you can check out the link in the description,  

  • which is my Amazon storefront. I have listed on  there, all of the books that I recommend, and you  

  • can just click on them and purchase them. I think  I get like 10 cents from each purchase. So, it's  

  • not really that much for me, but it's just a way  to show you the books that you can read and give  

  • some recommendations and where you can get them. And finally, of course, you can watch some TV  

  • shows or cartoons in English. Sometimes children's  cartoons are a great way to get started. They use  

  • simple language for kids and they speak slowlyyou can see the action developing. It's a good way  

  • to start to immerse yourself more in English. For  some other ways that you can speak English just by  

  • being at home you can check out this video I made  up here, which goes into that topic more in depth

  • My first tip was to schedule a certain amount  of time every day. Second tip was to surround  

  • yourself with English. And the third tip is, can  you guess? Do you got it? It is to speak. I didn't  

  • think that you could improve your speaking without  really speaking, right? If you spend all your time  

  • listening to podcasts, watching TV shows, watching  my videos, but never actually speaking in English,  

  • well, you're going to have a lot of head  knowledge, but you won't be able to use it.  

  • So, I want to empower you to be  able to use what you're learning

  • If you are like most people, the thought of  speaking in English gives you some stage fright.  

  • Stage fright means anxiety, you are nervous about  speaking in English. Well, you're not alone. Let  

  • me give you some tips to help you get startedIf you have a pet speak in English to them. You  

  • can narrate your day. "This is what I did today. I  went to work and when I was talking with my boss,"  

  • blah, blah, blah, blah. Or as you're cooking, you  can narrate what you're doing. "I need to crack  

  • the eggs. And I need to mix them together. And  chop up some cheese." You are like the star of  

  • a cooking show and no one else is listeningOr if your family's listening, tell them,  

  • "Don't judge me. I'm doing my own thing." And you  can speak out loud about these daily activities

  • I know it's really important to have vocabularyto be able to do that, so you can check out  

  • this video that I made up here about specific  words that you can use for daily conversation,  

  • for daily life. It's really great to be able  to look around the room and name everything,  

  • and talk about everything that you see. These  are real things that are in our daily lives.  

  • So, you need to be able to talk about itWell, that's one way, to speak in your home

  • The next thing you can do to help yourself feel  more comfortable speaking is to record your voice.  

  • The most important thing to know here is that  you don't need to share this with anyone.  

  • You can record your voice, listen to it and  delete it immediately. You don't need to  

  • share this with the internet. You don't need  to share this with a teacher. If you want,  

  • this can be just for you. And that might help you  to relieve a little anxiety, but it's good to be  

  • able to listen to your voice, listen to how  it sounds, be kind to yourself. And also,  

  • hear if there are specific sounds that don't sound  like my voice, well, if you're trying to imitate  

  • the way that I speak, it's a good thing to be  able to improve your pronunciation based on that

  • I have a couple videos about shadowing  pronunciation, that's what this is called.  

  • Listening to a native speaker, repeating it and  recording yourself so that you can hear it. You  

  • can check out that lesson up here. I'm mentioning  a lot of previous lessons today. You can check out  

  • this lesson up here about repeating, and saying  some of the most important phrases, or most common  

  • phrases in English. This will help you to be  able to speak out loud and build that confidence

  • My final tip for speaking is to just do it. The  first two are a little easy. You talk with your  

  • pet, talk while you're cooking, record yourselfthat's a little isolated. But you can find someone  

  • to speak on Zoom with, to speak on WhatsApp  with, to speak on Facebook Messenger with,  

  • to speak on Skype with, to be able to contact  someone. It could be another English learner,  

  • it could be an English teacher, but just being  able to speak with someone else, even 10 minutes,  

  • simple, straightforward, have a very clear  conversation just a couple minutes can help to  

  • let go of that stress, and to realize guys, "Oh,  I can do this. I have a lot I need to improve,  

  • but I can do this. Okay, just do it." If you don't know who to speak with a lot  

  • of students in my course, The Fearless Fluency  Club, speak together each week, sometimes three  

  • or four times per week. They can learn the  same lesson material that I send to them.  

  • But they can also connect on Zoom, SkypeWhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and talk  

  • together. They can ask questions about the course  together, practicing that vocabulary, and grammar,  

  • and pronunciation. Or they can just get to know  each other and really deepen those friendships  

  • with people around the world in English. So, if you would like a good place to  

  • start for meeting other people, this is  a great place. Everyone is so kind and so  

  • understanding about what it's like to learn  English and feel nervous. So, I hope that you  

  • will be able to join me. You can click on the  link up here, or in the description to join me  

  • in The Fearless Fluency Club. The first monthif you use the coupon code NEW, if you write the  

  • word NEW in the coupon code box, the first month  is $5. This is like a trial price. The normal  

  • price is $35 per month. But if you like it after  the first month, $5, great. You can continue in  

  • the course. If you don't like it, if it's not  a good fit for you, no problem. You can just  

  • cancel. And it is easy peasy, as we might say. Well, I hope today that I was able to impart some  

  • courage to you to give you some informationand also the strength to know if you didn't  

  • learn English fluently in 30 days that's okayIn fact, that's impossible. So, I hope that you  

  • will be able to be realistic, take some of these  tips today and go forward on your English learning  

  • journey. I'm here to help you. It's my goal.  I'm your teacher. And I would love to help you

  • And, now, I have a question for you. In  the comments, let me know what is another  

  • tip that you would give about learning English  on a daily basis, or how to become a confident
