Effortless English Rule 5

Hi. How are you today? Are you having a great day? I’m doing well. Today I’m back to explain Rule 5. I hope you are enjoying these emails 🙂

On Day 2, I told you never to study grammar rules. But, of course, you want to use correct English grammar.

Maybe you are thinking, “How can I learn English grammar if I don’t study English grammar rules?” Well, today I will tell you.

 I will teach you a way to learn grammar naturally. Use this method and your grammar will improve automatically.  You will automatically use the correct verb tense. You won’t think. You won’t try.

 **Rule 5: A Story

Miyuki did very well on grammar tests. She knew all of the grammar rules. She knew English verbs.But Miyuki had a problem. She couldn’t USE the grammar in a real conversation. She could explain the past tense, but when speaking, she would say “Yesterday I GO to school”.

 Miyuki was confused. How could her grammar tests be so good, but her speaking so bad?

Miyuki said:

“Before Effortless English, I knew all the grammar rules, but I couldn’t speak correctly. I couldn’t feel English grammar. After using Point of View stories, I feel it and use it correctly.

Now my grammar is great when I speak. I never think about it, I just automatically use correct grammar. Thank you A.J.!”

Miyuki learned this grammar naturally. She never studied grammar rules. How did she do it?

First she listened to a short story in the present tense. She listened to it everyday.

Then, she listened to the exact SAME story– but this time it  started with “10 years ago….”   She learned to “feel” the past tense by listening to this story.

Next, I gave her the exact same story. This time, it started with “Since 2004…”   Miyuki learned to FEEL the perfect tenses by listening to this story.

 Finally, I gave her the exact same story… beginning with “Next year”.     She learned to FEEL the future tense simply by listening to this story.

***RULE 5: Use Point Of View Mini-Stories

I call these stories “Point Of View Mini-Stories”.  They are the most powerful way to learn and use English grammar automatically.

 Use Point of View Stories for Automatic Grammar

Use Point of View Stories for Automatic Grammar

 You must learn grammar by listening to real English. The best way is to listen to the same story… told in different times (points of  view):  Past, Perfect, Present, Future.

 How do you do this? Easy! Find a story or article in the present tense. Then ask your native speaker tutor to write it again in the Past, with Perfect tenses, and in the Future. Finally, ask him to read and record these stories for you.

 Then you can listen to stories with many different kinds of grammar. You don’t need to know the grammar rules. Just listen to the Point of View stories and you will improve grammar automatically!

 You can also find Point of View lessons and use them to learn grammar automatically.

 It is powerful.  It is simple.  It is successful. You will succeed.  You will use correct grammar naturally and automatically.

This is the secret to English grammar.

 **How To Learn Real English

In the next email, I will tell you how to avoid textbooks and learn only real English.

I guarantee you will succeed. Don’t quit. You can do it 🙂 Have a great day!

Good luck with your English learning,
