  • He's gonna help you because what Thomas says is this Basically, before you start something you should know where you wanna go.

  • Imagine going on a trip, right?

  • If you go in a taxi or on an airplane, you don't just go.

  • I pay you.

  • Thank me.

  • Okay.

  • You'll go anywhere.

  • But if you know where you want to go, then you'll know how much you want to spend, How long you're gonna be there for You're going to get the results you want, and it's gonna be a great vacation.

  • We want English to be a great opportunity for you.

  • So let's start with the first five questions.

  • So Thomas says, Why do you want to learn English?

  • Most of you right now going?

  • Because, Well, because isn't a reason because leads to a reason because of this.

  • So for some of you, it's for vacation.

  • Or I would say pleasure, right?

  • You wanna have fun, you're going to a new country.

  • You want to talk to the people, you want to understand them, That's it.

  • Some of you school, you're going to go to a foreign country Canada, United States or England.

  • You know, there are benefits to having a degree from these countries, their international right.

  • So in that case, you gonna have to pass tests like Toefel or else.

  • So your needs for English or different than the vacation person.

  • They don't need to know academic words you dio And for some of you, its job.

  • So you were looking at promotions, right?

  • I need to get this from my job to keep my job right.

  • Or I need this because I want to have a higher level job because my company is becoming international.

  • And from Mexico we work with Americans.

  • I'm from India.

  • We dio telecommunications, right?

  • All of these things are necessary for people.

  • So when you're looking at it, your need is going to dictate and dictate.

  • We mean, tell you what you need to dio leads to Thomas's next question.

  • Once you've done this, how will you use your English?

  • Well, James, we just ask this for work.

  • No, there are two different types of English on.

  • What do I mean by this?

  • Well, any language is what we call.

  • Let me give a green one to give you a good idea.

  • That's what we call passive and what we call active.

  • What are they?

  • Well, one information comes in and that's passive.

  • The other information goes out.

  • That's active.

  • I'm sorry.

  • Active, passive would be reading for listening when you listen.

  • You're passive.

  • You're not saying anything.

  • You're not producing any any information.

  • You're just basically say taking an information for other people.

  • Okay, When you're listening and when you're reading is the same thing.

  • So in this case, we want Thio.

  • Understand?

  • Okay.

  • We want to understand That might be a little low for you.

  • You know what I'm gonna do?

  • I'm gonna put it up here.

  • So when you're doing passive information, think of passive information as understanding English or understanding.

  • Okay, So what's active?

  • Well, activists, obviously the opposite.

  • That's when you're going to be doing a lot of speaking one or writing.

  • Yeah.

  • Okay.

  • Like business reports, you might have to write something or talk at a meeting.

  • Okay, so this is when you want to give information.

  • Or better yet, let's say be understood.

  • Okay?

  • Vacation People will probably like speaking, listening not much reading or writing.

  • Students reading and writing and listening.

  • Speaking.

  • Maybe not so much business people speaking.

  • You get the idea.

  • So once you know why you need the English, then you're gonna know how you're going to use it.

  • We can move on to the third part.

  • The third part are believe it or not, it has nothing to do with English.

  • It's what are your own strengths in your own language.

  • Are you a good speaker?

  • Do you like to read do you like to write?

  • If you know that, you will have Mhm.

  • Okay.

  • Noticed?

  • I stopped speaking because I wanted you to pay attention.

  • You will have the ability to learn.

  • Foster.

  • If you're a good speaker than practice speaking in English, it's natural for you.

  • So it works better for you.

  • If you're good at reading or writing, then what you want to do is read in English.

  • Your love to read you love classic literature.

  • Read you love to write, then write, write in English, write stories, right?

  • What is your strength in your language?

  • What do you do best?

  • Because that's the thing that will help you.

  • Okay, now that's we've done this.

  • We figured out what we want to do.

  • How we will use it.

  • On what?

  • Our strengths.

  • We go over here.

  • What are your strengths or weaknesses in English?

  • Let's face fax you.

  • If you had no English, you wouldn't understand anything.

  • I just said so Obviously, you have some English experience.

  • Okay, If that's the case, now that you understand this right, what are your strength and your language?

  • And you thought about it?

  • What strengths or weaknesses and strengths means, Like forte, Muscle weakness.

  • E mean, what are your best things in English?

  • Funny.

  • You're probably noticing that your strength and your language is also your strength in English.

  • Maybe not, but things you might want to look at our key in on when we say Keown, we need focus on would be grammar.

  • And your weakness is your strength.

  • You can improve as they improve.

  • Actually, your weaknesses get less and less.

  • You become stronger all over.

  • It's what we call win.

  • Win means you get better and better by looking at both aspects.

  • Okay.

  • How much time do you really have?

  • This is the big factor.

  • Ah, lot of students say I want to learn English.

  • I want to be good.

  • I want to be fluent.

  • And they never asked a quick key question.

  • How much time will you devote?

  • Devote means Give time our energy to to learning your English.
