Hello I'm Emma from mmmenglish!, helping you to build your confidence as an English speaker.
In this video I have a very special lesson for you
that‘s using The Imitation Technique.
I also have something that's very exciting to share
at the end of this lesson so make sure you keep watching.
Practicing with the imitation technique
can dramatically improve your English communication skills.
It's worked for thousands of my students already and it can work for you too!
Why? Because with this technique you learn to communicate
with more than just words.
Is clear pronunciation important when you're speaking English?
Yes, of course it is!
But so is stress and intonation,
so is using tone and body language to express your emotions and so
is pause to create suspense or add emphasis.
It's not just what you say but how you
say it in English.
With the imitation technique you'll learn how to perform English.
It's like an actor in the movies or a pop star singing on stage.
Are you ready to give it a try?
In this imitation lesson, you'll hear me telling you a story.
Listen to the tone and the intonation in my voice while I'm speaking.
You'll hear that I'm being supportive and I'm encouraging a friend
to do something.
Here's how it works, you'll hear the same story three times.
The first time you hear it, you'll just need to listen and read.
Listen to the topic, the vocabulary and my expression.
You're learning the script.
Then, you'll hear the same script again but this time there will be a short
pause after each clause or sentence.
This is so that you can say it aloud, exactly
as it was said in the recording.
I want you to imitate me, to copy me, the native English speaker.
The last step is the most challenging one.
Try to shadow me while I'm speaking!
Perform each sentence, with the same expression and intonation,
while I'm speaking.
If you don't shadow me perfectly, don't worry! It's meant to a challenge
But this step is really important, it helps you to practice all
of these skills in a different way.
OK, it's time to give it a try!
Good luck!
You can do this.
Ready?
This is step number one, listen and read.
You know what? I think you should just go for it!
I mean, what have you got to lose?
You've got plenty of experience and nobody is more passionate about this
kind of work than you. Just because you don't have a degree shouldn't make a difference.
I mean, you've been doing this for real for so much longer than anyone
who's just come out of university.
Besides, what's the worst thing that can happen?
They might turn you down, but who cares? It's not like you really need this job.
But imagine if you get it!
Living on an island, going for a swim every morning
before work, eating fresh fruit and seafood every day!
I think you should just go for it!
Then I can come and visit you! What if I help you? I could make
you a logo or something? Or I could help you with your cover letter.
You've got to admit it's pretty exciting and you're perfect for this role.
Come on! What do you think?!
Step Two.
Great! Now you're ready to imitate the speaker.
Listen to the speaker and in the pause, repeat what they said exactly as
they said it.
You know what? I think you should just go for it!
I mean, what have you got to lose?
You've got plenty of experience,
and nobody is more passionate about this kind of work than you.
Just because you don't have a degree shouldn't make a difference.
I mean, you've been doing this for real
for so much longer than anyone who's just come out of university.
Besides, what's the worst thing that can happen?
They might turn you down, but who cares? It's not like you really need this job.

Or I could help you with your cover letter?
You've got to admit it's pretty exciting and you're perfect for this role.
Come on! What do you think?
Step Three
OK, you're ready for a new challenge now!
Let's try shadowing. Copy the speaker while they are speaking.
Remember, don't worry about your mistakes.
You know what? I think you should just go for it! I mean what have you got to lose?
You've got plenty of experience
and nobody is more passionate about this kind of work than you.
Just because you don't have a degree shouldn't make a difference.
I mean, you've been doing this for real for so much

Come on! What do you think?
Awesome! Remember, practice makes perfect!
So when you're ready, try the next lesson.
So, how did you go?
Keep practicing with this lesson
until you look and you sound just like a
native English speaker!
Before you go I want to share something super exciting with you!

Technique that I've created a whole new range of imitation lessons so that you
can speak more confidently too!
