One of our NELS students surpassed his target score by a massive 45 points recently when he took the TOEIC test for the FIRST time! He was on our 780 target score course, and his personal target was 800, but he scored 825 out of a maximum 990!
We are so proud of him! He studied hard using our ‘Repeat ‘n’ Speak’ method and his hard work paid off. Here he is proudly showing his score with me and Yoko.
Our ‘Repeat ‘n’ Speak’ method has the aim of being able to accurately repeat what you hear or read. If you understand what you have said or read, then this will make your comprehension so much easier. It will also mean you are learning patterns which is at the heart of learning any language.
Another key factor is being able to understand natural linked speech. For example, if you can recognise that ‘KunIhavanotherapple’ is ‘Can I have another apple?’ then you should be able to answer the question: ‘What does the speaker want?’ And your answer is…?
Our method also improves speaking ability, as our students must speak to repeat and are therefore activity working and using the language, rather than just passively receiving information. If you don’t use language, you lose it, so whenever you read, read aloud! So are you reading this blog aloud too?!
If you can hear accurately and repeat accurately then you are improving not only your listening, speaking AND pronunciation, but also your comprehension skills – four for the price of one! So isn’t it about time you started improving your English with ‘Repeat ‘n’ Speak?’
