  • Students often ask me what they should do to become a fluent English speaker much more

  • quickly

  • Should they learn more words, write more, read more, study more grammar, or do one of

  • a hundred other things?

  • Well, my answer always surprises them because the BIGGEST SECRET to fast fluency actually

  • has nothing to do with vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar, or even language learning at all

  • But this secret explains why some learners become confident speakers in months while

  • others struggle to express themselves for years

  • This is Taylor swift, a world-famous singer, songwriter and winner of more than 200 awards.

  • She’s also been the voice of a cartoon character, and she wrote her first song, "Lucky You,"

  • at the age of 12.

  • I’m highlighting Taylor Swift today because she reveals the surprising key to fast fluency.

  • See if you can guess the secret from the following three stories from her life

  • Long before it was popular, Taylor Swift was using texting, and the social networking site

  • MySpace, to promote her music. This was very non-traditional for a country music musician,

  • which she was before she began producing pop music, because country music was typically

  • for older audiences. But swift knew teens were using MySpace, and she was creative about

  • testing music on the platform before it was released to the public. The trackOur Song

  • made it on a record because of its popularity first on MySpace.

  • Next, in 2015, when Apple was launching its Apple Music service, the company decided to

  • offer a three-month free trial period to subscribers. But during this period, Apple said it would

  • not pay musicians when their music was downloaded.

  • Taylor Swift was very unhappy that she and other musicians would lose revenue during

  • this period and she refused to allow Apple to stream her album 1989. She also wrote a

  • letter to the company, and within 24 hours, Apple reversed its decision and said it would

  • pay artists during the trial period. Many artists had complained about not being paid

  • during this period, but only after Swift said something did Apple listen.

  • Finally, in 2019, Swift combined the power of her fans, other artists and even politicians

  • in a fight for the rights to her music. In June of this year, Taylor Swift’s record

  • label was sold, meaning that the master recordings of Swift’s earlier music became the property

  • of a new owner. Swift was unable to purchase the rights to her recordings herself. What

  • was initially a private business situation became very public when Swift told fans and

  • other musicians to say this was wrong, and that it hurt other artists. And after generating

  • enough support on the Internet, Swift and other artists won some victories for controlling

  • their performances.

  • So what was the secret to Taylor Swift’s success?

  • There are many popular musicians and songwriters, but Taylor Swift has become one of the biggest

  • musicians on the planet because she used LEVERAGE.

  • Leverage means doing MORE or FASTER work with LESS... Especially LESS TIME.

  • In the same way that I leverage videos here on YouTube to teach millions of learners online,

  • instead of only a few people in the classroom

  • Taylor Swift leveraged technology and her star power for her career.

  • Now, the reason leverage is so important for language learners like us is because learning

  • leverage pointscan save you months or even years of study time

  • And the less time you need to learn, the faster you get fluent!

  • One example for us language learners is vocabulary leverage...

  • Did you know that some words are used in conversations many, many times more often than other words?

  • When you understand this, you know to spend your time learning only the most commonly

  • used conversational speech for YOUR life and career, and not all of the rarely used textbook

  • words most teachers make you study.

  • If you want even MORE leverage, think about all of the vocabulary and grammar errors you

  • make

  • Most likely, there is a small number of mistakes you make again and again. So if you simply

  • fix these few errors, you can improve your communication skills and confidence in a very

  • short time.

  • And pronunciation? Likely, there are just a few sounds you could learn to say more smoothly,

  • which would make you sound much more like a native and natural in no time!

  • Pretty cool, right?

  • So instead of worrying about grammar or pronunciation or vocabulary, think about what you can leverage

  • and you will become a confident, fluent English speaker much faster!

  • I’ve discovered many fantastic learningleverage pointsover 15 years of helping

  • learners
