The RealLife English Podcast

In this podcast, Ethan, Andrea, and Justin—your American and British Fluency Coaches will take you beyond the classroom and help you live, learn, and SPEAK English in the real world through fun, natural, conversational lessons that will rapidly teach you: - To understand fast-speaking natives - The vocabulary, phrasal verbs, idioms, and slang that you actually need to know - Native pronunciation and connected speech (how we natives cut and connect our words in a predictable way) - American and British English and their differences Above all, we'll help you develop the mindset, the method, and the mastery to live your English in the real world!

Native speakers never make mistakes in English, do we? We definitely do! From time to time even native English speakers make grammar and pronunciation mistakes! So if you are learning English as a second language or foreign language, don’t feel bad about making mistakes. Remember, the important thing is to learn from them. In today’s episode we’ll look at 10 of the most common mistakes native speakers make when speaking English.

As a teacher I often got asked the question: “Is it better to have a native English-speaking teacher? Or can a non-native English speaking partner or teacher be just as effective?” The truth is that non-native English teachers are often just as good as native-English speakers—and sometimes they’re better. Today we’ll talk about why practicing with Non-Natives can actually benefit you on your language learning journey.

Today’s episode is the first lesson in the “RealLife Way” series, which is an overview of our teaching methodology, The RealLife Way methodology guides you beyond the classroom to Live, Speak, and Master English in the Real World.

But before we get into “Living” “Speaking” and “Mastering” your English, we have to talk about mindset. Mindset is the set of beliefs that shape how you make sense of the world and yourself. It influences how you think, feel, and behave in any given situation.

You might be wondering “What does this have to do with learning English?" Well, the answer might surprise you!

Today, we’re going to talk about why having the right mindset matters when it comes to being a successful learner and how YOU can achieve this.

Learning a language goes beyond memorizing words and basic grammar rules. Understanding culture is like having a context that allows you to give the right meaning to each new word you learn. The more you know about the social and cultural background of the language, the easier it is to learn new words, expressions and ways of speaking. In today’s podcast, we’ll look at how understanding culture can help improve your English fluency.

One of the greatest challenges for Upper-intermediate learners is to continue making progress in their English. We’ve had countless students tell us about this problem: They already speak English quite well but still have some things to improve. Although they know this, they’re not sure how to do it and they feel stuck at intermediate level. If this sounds like you, then be sure to keep listening because you’ll find out the key breaking out of the intermediate plateau!

As language learners, we often strive for perfect pronunciation, because how we sound is the first thing people hear when we speak. We’re afraid that if we make a mistake, especially when it comes to pronunciation, our value will diminish and others will realize that we’re not as good as we say we are. But let’s be honest, in many cases, English pronunciation makes no sense! In English, spelling and sound don’t always correspond (in fact, they rarely do!). Worry no more! In today’s lesson, our Beyond Borders guests will share some of the best methods you can use to improve your pronunciation. Get ready to be inspired!

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? Did you try to read that out loud? Did you find it hard? That’s a tongue twister. They usually have the same sounding consonants, so when you try to say each word the pronunciation comes out all wrong. Tongue twisters are a fun and great way to practice your articulation and your pronunciation. They challenge your capacity to enunciate the individual sounds in each word, so you don’t trip up and forces you to pay careful attention to the precise sounds in each word. Join us in this fun lesson where Ethan, Andrea and yourself are put to the test with 6 tricky tongue twisters!

2022 is upon us! Something that we find immensely helpful is to sit down at the end or beginning of the year and review our progress from the last 12 months, and determine where we want to go over the next year. This can be incredibly powerful to achieve things you never thought possible, so we are excited to share this conversation that will help you take your English and your life to the next level in 2022.

Gabriele Oettingen is a Professor of Psychology and author originally from Germany. She has been teaching at New York University and the University of Hamburg for more than 20 years. Her research focuses on the Science of Motivation and explains why positive thinking alone is not enough to achieve our goals. Upon more than 25 years of research, she developed a goal-achievement strategy called WOOP. WOOP stands for WISH, OUTCOME, OBSTACLE, and PLAN. This empirically based approach focuses on helping people connect to their biggest wishes, clarify the desired outcome, identify the obstacles that may stand in the way, and set a realistic plan in just ten minutes or less!

I first heard about Gabriele's work three years ago, and I found it immensely helpful for setting goals. This time of year, many of us are thinking about what new objectives we want to achieve, so I was so thrilled to be able to get Gabriele on. With Gabriele's advice, you can make this the year that you actually achieve some of your deepest desires, be it English fluency, weight loss, better health, a new job, or even less anxiety! Gabriele shared with me a bit about how she ended up in the USA and some surprising cultural differences. Whether she still finds it challenging communicating in English. Why the advice to be optimistic or think positive may not always be to your benefit. How you can use WOOP to identify the right goals for this new year and actually achieve them. When you should use WOOP to be most successful and plenty of examples. How we can deal with risk aversion. How you can use WOOP to be a better parent. So much more. I'm so excited to bring you Gabriele's work and wisdom, I hope you find it as helpful as I have. Let's jump into episode 23 of Beyond Borders!
