Hi Folks thank you for tuning (in?) into my podcast again. I’m not a super ninja polyglot to speak several languages fluently. I’m not going to offer you a masterclass for $970 which is meant to push your language skills magically to the next level effortless at the ease almost by doing nothing. No I’m not going to offer you that. Sorry. I’m just a language learner who struggles to become more fluent in various languages such as English.
I’m Daniel D goodson.
A master, Sorry your host coming to almost live from off the beaten path. With this podcast I want to share all my learning experiences with you. And I want to better my live from off the beaten path. With this podcast.I want to share all my learning experiences with you. And I want to better my English in this episode, I’m going to give you five fresh dirty tips how you could boost your language skills to the next level. Number English in this episode. I’m going to give you five tyirfresh dtips how you could boost your language skills to the next level. Number one: set up your own podcast. Not in your mother tongue but in your target language, of course.
But by all means make it better than mine. The fact that there will be people actually listening to you will give you the needed motivation – even if they probably only listened to you once or they just missclick and listen to you only for a few seconds it doesn’t matter at all. The whole podcasting thing will give you the boost.
Anyways. Nobody wants to look like a fool or in this case to sound like a fool. That’s why you are kind of forced to come up with correct grammar word order and so on. That’s also the reason why I write a transcript beforehand. Or at least I note down some key words or key phrases. Or let’s say To be honest at the moment I write down the whole sentence.
I set up a draft and then work on for several days and my goal is in near future to jot down only keywords and by the way if you want to check out if creating a podcast will really work out for language learning.
Please wait until I produce 20 more episodes then you’ll be able to compare my speaking skills from different episodes and see if I did a progress. compare my speaking skills from different episodes and see if I did a progress.
Just that simple. Or in other words like for about 10 years then you’ll see if number one of my dirty fresh tips is really helpful or just crap.
Oh sorry that slipped out of my mouth.
I actually wanted to say the word content instead of crap.
Let’s go to number two. Find a language exchange partner. The stronger the bond with the language partner is the better chances are you will boost your language skills or even better find your language exchange podcaster Wow again you see this idea of podcasting comes up. It seems I’m kind of thrilled about this idea producing together will definitely help you with the language you could both be the hosts of a bilingual podcast. You will be in contact all the time in order to plan all of things which goes
along with the production of the podcast and at the same time you will better your language – sounds perfect to me. There are actually a few bilingual podcasts out there. I give you a few examples. The first one is called B.A. cast. Buenos Aires Podcast which I really appreciate.A Spanish and English podcast from an Argentinian guy and an American guy.
And now let’s listen to the fantastic podcast. Estanjero..
We are a bilingual show called course the only bilingual show in the universe. We are reaching the season first and first and only bilingual show and you’re not speaking in Spanish so you’re not really doing your part right now. You’re getting nowhere. All right. I mean listen if I like your English yes I don’t even know what that means. My answer was No.
I’m still waiting for new episodes. The last episode number 35 or so almost broke my heart. Number two is actually a French podcast called talk in French. The episodes were spoken in English but just lately the host tried something new and broadcasted his last episode in French together with an English speaking woman whose level is advanced in French. It’s actually not a bilingual podcast but she would then
from time to time drop in translated expressions in English.
In any case here comes number three. Use technology wisely. Be aware of the danger of technology in terms of the whole materials out there. If you don’t be careful you will get easily overwhelmed by all the stuff. Pen and paper will do the trick, too. And that way you won’t be distracted that easily. You can reallyy focus on a subject it’s really all about striking a balance between technology and more traditional methods. Number four build new strong
habits but defined long term goals and also define short term goals. And that’s actually the point. I struggle the most because I don’t stick to one method you know. Instead I’m trying hundreds of methods downloading far too many applications, reading too many books, listening to various podcasts, writing down too many thoughts. Just in an unorganized manner you know, well let’s hope I will stick to my fluent podcast or maybe let’s
hope not depending on if you appreciate what I’m going for with this podcast. Number five: don’t follow the ideas of a podcaster’s or blogger’s Top Ten list top five list are OK. Well don’t rely only on other people’s opinions. Come on have a bit trust in yourself. Be confident. And besides that trial and error is key. You have to experience things by yourself. You don’t need somebody else to take over the thinking part for you. Don’t get me wrong I don’t mean you shall not listen to them
things by yourself. You don’t need somebody else to take over thethinking part for you. Don’t get me wrong I don’t mean you shall not listen to them at all. I mean I listen to the from podcasts as well. I really look up to them. I really appreciate the work they do and sometimes I can’t stop listening. I swear I only want you to learn that I want you to be critical. And that the guys were My five fresh dirty tips how you could boost your language skills to the next level.
