  • Hello and welcome to day 3,

  • of the Easy English Seven Days Series.

  • Now, before we get started, don't forget,

  • go down and fill out the survey

  • attached to each day

  • of this course and I will send you

  • a free gift. It's a big section

  • out of our teaching tales that we sell

  • for eighty dollars. So

  • the value of this gift is probably

  • forty or fifty dollars. I will send it

  • to you free. Okay.

  • Okay rule number three, today's rule:

  • is always slow down

  • the English so you

  • understand completely.

  • Slow

  • down the English

  • so you understand

  • completely.

  • Why do you want to you slow down

  • the English so you understand

  • completely? Again,

  • this is a rule that I

  • didn't invent. We

  • here at LetsDoEnglish didn't invent

  • this rule. But modern science,

  • modern language learning says

  • that if the words are too fast,

  • you won't understand them.

  • You won't learn English

  • and in fact it can make

  • your English worse. Some people

  • believe that if they listen to

  • the radio in English

  • that they will learn to speak English.

  • It's not true. It's not true,

  • it's wrong. Why? Because

  • the words are too fast.

  • If the conversation is too fast,

  • you will not learn the English. So

  • how do you slow down

  • the English so that you

  • completely understand? Well

  • you need to listen to materials

  • that are slow. So, perhaps

  • you want to listen to

  • an audiobook made

  • for children. Kids

  • audiobook. Also,

  • if you're having a conversation with an

  • English speaker and they're speaking

  • too fast, say:

  • "pardon me, I don't

  • understand. Can you please

  • slow down". You say:

  • "pardon me, I don't understand.

  • can you please slow down",

  • and they will.

  • They'll slow down for you.

  • This rule, slow down

  • the English, so you completely understand.

  • Is why parents

  • speak so slowly

  • to babies and children.

  • Because parents know this.

  • It's also why we

  • at LetsDoEnglish speak

  • so slowly in these lessons.

  • I want you to understand

  • every word.

  • Now, you may not understand

  • every word. But if I speak

  • slower, you will understand

  • most of them. When learning

  • to speak English,

  • you need to try

  • to understand every

  • word. So, listen

  • to English audiobooks

  • that are slow.

  • Have conversations with English speakers

  • that are slow.

  • That's today's lesson. Thank you so much for being here.

  • I'll see you tomorrow.

Hello and welcome to day 3,
