 Easiest Way to Start Speaking Immediately
 
What is the easiest way to start speaking a new language? And regardless whether you're a beginner, or advanced level student, or even an expert, and highly paid professional. The ANSWER is that you need to speak the language everyday.

But also, there is a way that you can ensure that your skills are improving each time that you are speaking. Because sadly it's actually possible for you to do the exact opposite, and get worse, and lose your skills, if you're not speaking in the right way.


*Disclosure/Disclaimer: Although my company (ChatFellow) gives away our main product for FREE (ChatFellow Speaking Scripts) we do have a PRO version which costs $189 but is not necessary because our FREE version gives you all of the speaking benefits for which you came here. And we're happy even if you only use the FREE version forever and never get the PRO version (to see a more detailed disclosure and disclaimer please go to the bottom of this page and also see the link there for our full disclosure and disclaimer). We do advertise for other related companies and products as well. And some unrelated. Now back to your article...

You don't want to spend your life AND MONEY learning a language, and then NEVER be able to speak it! Isn't that the unfortunate outcome for most people? Yes! Also, you don't want to speak it everyday and then NEVER improve! These are unfortunate TRUE stories for almost everyone.*** I don't want this to describe you also!

***As you come back everyday to read our "articles" you'll see recent research that shows only 3% of students in public schools (which percentage is basically the same for private schools and colleges as well) become speakers of the language, and that the 3% who do were also learning it in the home from fluent parents! Or in other words, the 3% who did acquire speaking skills didn't do so in school! TRAGIC but true! If all you had was a school education, statistics say you can't speak! That's why I invented ChatFellow, so that the students of the world can speak the language I recommend all teachers give ChatFellow to your students! It's the greatest graduation gift you can give somebody, or even BEFORE graduation! And post graduates, enthusiasts, PROFESSIONALS, teachers, parents, or ANYONE! And it's FREE!!! Go here now: ChatFellow Scripts!

When learning to speak, you need to do it in a certain way, to be effective, and get instant, permanent results, which way I'm going to show you right now, that maximizes all the possible benefits that you could be getting each time you speak!

Here are the 4 things that will make you a fluent speaker, EASY & FAST!
!!*

#1).  Don't spend money/time when it's FREE and takes only
"3-Minutes" per day!!!

#2)
Speak daily! Whatever you're learning, reading, studying, doing, speak it out-loud, even if you're just stying vocabulary, or correcting sentences, read them out-loud! Say it
!!!

#3)
Everything is outdated. Make sure your curriculum and materials and conversations are up-to-date.

#4)
Conversation is over-rated. You need content in your conversations that will give you more vocabulary, more grammar, more knowledge, more skill, more everything, every time that open your mouth!


Okay, so here's the first thing that will make it easier and faster for you to be able to speak a language:

#1).  Don't waste money/time...

You need to take full advantage of your PRECIOUS time, your MONEY, your life. Don't waste money, or time, or life! You don't need to spend any money. And just "3-Minutes" per day. Maybe even LESS TIME than that
! For you to become a better speaker, everyday, and even fluent, like a native!* I'm going to share with you that secret!

*Disclaimer: There are always exceptions; not everybody becomes fluent. You might not experience any improvement. Please see our more detailed disclaimer at the bottom of this page and also see the link there for our full disclaimer.



#2).  Speak daily...

I agree with Alex Redfern (founder of Lingoci.com) who said, that "we should start speaking from day one" when learning a new language. AND ESPECIALLY if you're already an expert! You should be speaking daily, so that you don't forget the language but also so that you can continue improving your ability to speak!(1)

He mentions some of the ways that you can do this, for example "find native speakers to converse with." And he mentions a few places you can find people, such as online forums, or even actually going somewhere to meet a person face to face. BUT IF IN PERSON, FACE-TO-FACE, BE CAUTIOUS!!! GO SOMEWHERE PUBLIC AND BRING A FRIEND, DON'T GO ALONE
!!! (1)

What I agree with most however, is when he points out the fact that the most successful learners in the world, "talk to themselves in the language they’re learning."(1)

And now, here's MY SECRET, that I promised to tell you: My ChatFellow Speaking Scripts ensure that you're saying things that are actually the way people are actually talking on the streets, in their homes, at the workplace, in school, and everywhere.


#3)Everything is outdated...

Do you want to talk like a book? Or using words and expressions that are 50 years outdated? Most college text books were written several years prior to their publishing date. And you're probably holding the 2nd or 3rd edition. Which means they are another 10 or 20 years old.
 
And even if you have the first edition it has content which came from other sources which often are aged as well. In some cases you're using text books whose content is 50 years old or more! And we're not just talking about Shakespear (hundreds of years old) and the Bible (thousands of years old)!
 
And if it's quoting Shakespeare, or the Bible, or pre-color era films, and so on... it could be centuries old or a THOUSAND YEARS old!!!

Make sure you're reading material that is up-to-date.


#4)Conversation is over-rated...

Because usually you're only saying the same 400 words over and over again, every day! "It gets much worse! An expert found that people who are learning a new language often don't learn more than 3,000 words, EVEN AFTER MANY YEARS of study."

And of course, most people don't speak 100% correctly. So you could be learning things wrong! Jeff Haden, over at Inc.com says, "Most people have at least one set of words they struggle with."(8)

And, research in "Taiwan showed that after 9 years of learning a foreign language half of the students FAILED to learn even the most frequently-used 1,000 words!!!"(7)

But, there's good news, they also said that, "If you learn only 800 of the most frequently-used [core words] in English, you'll be able to understand 75% of the language as it is spoken in normal life."
(7) Congratulations!

ChatFellow makes sure that you're using the full 20,000 word vocabulary that most students learn in school but have never ever spoken!

And, ChatFellow makes you speak it naturally, like in a conversation. You probably never find this opportunity to speak this way, anywhere else. My scientific methods enables you to speak quickly and smoothly. Something that most students fail to do when using any other method or program or in schools.

Normally when you're reading a book, or anything, you naturally SLOW DOWN and HESITATE and PAUSE and STOP. Because you're brain is trying to absorb the information. You're enjoying the story! You don't want to miss any of it! You might even GO BACK AND REPEAT it several times! How annoying would that be for your friend or listener?

I'm making sure that you're saying the words that you need to know right now, and all other words that you might someday need. And that you're using them in the same way natives actually talk modernly (today; up-to-date; updated), when talking with friends, customers, neighbors, at church, at the store, with parents, teachers, their boss, professionals, politicians, celebrities, and everyone.


The TYPE of content is vital...

I'm not just talking about the subject you're talking about. Or the words. But also the style, the accent, the gestures, the pace, and so on. You need content in your conversations that will give you more vocabulary, more grammar, more knowledge, more skill, more everything, every time that open your mouth!

DON'T WORRY!!!

That all seems very complicated, and so many different things to learn. But in fact you learn all of it AUTOMATICALLY, naturally, when you open your mouth to speak instead of silently studying. Speak it out-loud! Everything you study, speak it while you're studying it. Don't miss the opportunity forever!

You also need to make sure that you ARE IN FACT using words, sentences, idioms, jargon, slang, etc, that the average person uses today on the street, in the home, workplace, and so on. I already mentioned ChatFellow gives you "modern" speaking ability. This is vital! Because language gets outdated fast, and you can start sounding like an outdated book, and nobody will understand you, or think you're weird.

Watching recent movies, current TV shows, recent published works such as novels, and actually having conversations with people on the street, etc, is very important for one reason: One of the most significant aspects of conversing with real people is that you're calibrating your speaking with theirs. So that you're evolving alongside everybody else in that particular society as their language adapts, evolves, and changes over time.

Unfortunately you're NOT going to get everything you need from a conversation. But just those 400 words that you're using in a typical conversation, are enough to give you that evolution effect. Your brain makes you mimic your environment, it's a survival trait.

You will naturally, automatically start to talk like the people who you regularly encounter. Or who you watch on TV, in movies, and so on. Even when reading books you can recognize unique styles of personality, position, status, and so on, of the person doing the talking. You'll start to emulate their speaking style as your brain recognizes the most common expressions, styles, differences, and so on.

Your brain keeps track of the number, which words, expressions, differences, etc, are used more often than others. Which ones are more popular, more common. Or in other words, which ways of speaking are considered normal by that particular society. You don't want to be weird, you want to talk like everybody else, am I right? Absolutely!

In fact, over at FluentU which is one of the top language learner blogs on the internet right now, Michelle Baumgartner (StellaWriting.com) and Rebecca Thering (English With Rebe) have said that "you'll use the same 40 phrases over and over again!"(6)

Do you really want to only learn 40 new phrases? Because that's basically all you'll learn during regular daily conversations. However, you do want to make sure that you are in fact using the same types of phrases, words, expressions, styles that everybody else is using. And so for that reason, it's good to know the most common words, phrases, and use them.

If you want to see how easy ChatFellow is to use, listen to me reading a language script, at YouTube here:


As I mentioned before, most conversations use the same words, everyday, over and over again? That the average person only uses the same 400 words over and over again for their entire life. The average person only has an additional 3,000 words (for non-natives; and 30,000 words for natives) that they'll intertwine with those first 400 words, at random, occasionally, according to necessity.

You're probably shocked and wondering how that's possible!

Well, the average student of a foreign language or even their own native language, usually has learned 20,000 words in their brain by the time they're in college. You would be surprised to know that the average language only has 100,000 words or more, or less.

Most languages (French, Chinese, Spanish, etc,) have nearly a hundred thousands words or more! "The English language has a million words!
"(2)

However, unless you're doctor, AND ALSO a lawyer, AND ALSO a scientist, AND ALSO wear many other hats (mechanic, musician, pilot, etc), you'll never use that many words. You'll never know that many words.

And most people are not both a doctor and a lawyer at the same time. Most people only have one or two professions and so they don't need to know all of the words that a mechanic or pilot needs to know. And so on.

In fact, of those one million words (in the English language), actually only 200,000 of them are in current use.(3) The odds that you're going to encounter any of the words that are not in use, is still a possibility. That's why we have dictionaries.

Graph source: Lemongrad.com

And the odds that you're going to tap into those main 30,000 words (for natives; and only 3,000 words for non-natives) in your mind on a regular basis, is a very high probability.(3) But you're mostly only going to use the same 400 words everyday during your lifetime.(4)

The 400 are just what you use everyday, your main base of words. But the average person has a total of 3,000 words (if you're a non-native) and 30,000 words (if you're a native) from which they can draw any necessary adaptations to their usual conversation.(4)

OptiLingo, a very popular website for language learners and an expert on languages says, "About 95% of everyday conversations draw from a store of only 3,000 words."(4)

Furthermore, OptiLingo points out that, "Learning those 3,000 words first will be far more efficient than learning any others first."
(4) Which totally makes sense.

OptiLingo also discusses "The Pareto Principle"
(4) which basically says that we focus on using the words we know, the ones that we're good at using, the ones we know we're using correctly, rather than attempting to use words in our vocabulary that we're not very good at using, not completely sure we're using them correctly, and so on. Some refer to this as our "active" versus our "passive" vocabulary. The passive vocabulary are the words that we probably would recognize and understand if we heard them, but that we're not completely comfortable actually using them. Ancient scholars would refer to this as, "using the path of least resistance."


And you'll tap into the larger amount of 30,000 words, stored in your brain, only at random as you need them. This is the amount you learned during your lifetime (primarily in school and at home) in your native language.
(4)

And instead of being able to tap into those one million words that exist in the entire language (in the English language; for other languages it'll be a little less), you'll tap into the total 30,000 words that you learned during your lifetime (primarily in school and at home), only occasionally. And mostly passively (you'll understand the rough meaning of those words when you see them, hear them, or be able to figure it out by the context, but you won't know them well enough or have enough experience with them to feel comfortable using them in your own speaking).

"Native speakers who grew up in an English-speaking country and went to college typically have a vocabulary size of 30,000 words (The above range is a rough, commonly-accepted estimate; see that source for the extended variables). In contrast, non-native speakers typically have a vocabulary of 3,000 words."
(4)

And so, for me to say that in a simpler and easier way for everyone to understand, you might tap into a collection of 3,000 or more words, but you mostly use only 400 of them daily. Which should make you think, why is learning a language so DIFFICULT??? If we only need 400 words?! Actually, for some people it's not!

In fact, it probably isn't difficult and we just complicate it, and make it difficult. Especially certain aspects of language acquisition, such as speaking it. Speaking should be the easiest part!!! Reading and writing almost always requires schooling and many years of practice and improvement. Most babies start talking, around the age of 3 without any schooling!

Millions of people around the world are illiterate and cannot read or write, BUT CAN SPEAK JUST FINE. Yet people who have learned the language for 10 years in school, cannot speak it!!!

Don't let this be you!

I invented ChatFellow, so that the students of the world can speak the language I recommend all teachers give ChatFellow to your students! It's the greatest graduation gift you can give somebody, or even BEFORE graduation! And post graduates, enthusiasts, PROFESSIONALS, teachers, parents, or ANYONE! And it's FREE!!!
