What does it mean to speak English easily and automatically?
My definition is simple. You speak English automatically when your speech is effortless. You speak fluent English when the words come out of your mouth without translation and without hesitation. Sometimes this is called thinking in English….but truly automatic speech is even faster than that. There is no thinking. You donʼt think about the language at all. You just speak as easily and effortlessly as you do with your native language.
Why is automatic fluent speech important?
Itʼs important because automatic English speaking is the key to getting results with English. Automatic speaking makes it easy to connect with native speakers. As an automatic English speaker, itʼs easy for you to make friends, participate in business meetings, talk to customers, understand movies and get better jobs. To get real results with English, you need to speak easily and automatically.
