Suggested Lesson Order (Every Day Using The Same Set):
1. First, read the Text article. Read and review it, do not “study” it. Don’t try to memorize it.
2. Listen to the Mini-Story Lesson several times.
3. Listen to the Audio Story several times.
5. Listen to the Commentary (if there is one, and if you can understand it).
Effortless English is a deep learning system. You will learn each lesson very well. You will relax, go slowly and learn to speak English easily and automatically.
The best study schedule is as follows:
*Study one lesson set for a week or more. That’s right, only one set for at least a week. If you get bored, make a game with the Mini-Story lessons-- try to answer each question faster and faster.
*Everyday,listen to all of the parts of the lesson set. Try to listen to each part (in the set) at least two times every day. Listen to each lesson in the set every day-- for at least a week.You should, therefore, repeat every lesson at least 20 times. 30 or more times for each lesson is best. Remember, the Mini-Stories are most important.
*Listen at least one hour every day. Two hours every day is best.It's OK to divide your time during the day. For example, you might listen 30 minutes in the morning, 30 minutes going to work, 30 minutes during lunch, 30 minutes going home, and 30 minutes before going to sleep. In fact, this is an excellent way to learn.
*Relax :) Do not think about grammar rules. Just listen to the lessons and enjoy them. There is no pressure. You only need to listen and answer the questions (use the pause button).. If you have trouble,its OK. Just relax, go back to the beginning, and listen more. Listening is the most important activity.
*Start with the level “1.” lessons. These are the slowest, shortest,and easiest lessons. Then move to the lesson sets that begin with “2.”. These have a little more difficult words or grammar.
Even if the lessons seem easy, listen to only one set for a full week. You might know the words very well, but you need them to go deep into your brain. You need a lot of repetition and a lot of answering questions. If the lessons seem easy, try to answer the questions very quickly-- make it a game.
If even the “1.” level lessons seem difficult-- just relax. You can listen to one lesson set for 4 weeks, or 10 weeks if necessary. Don’t worry about doing a lot of lesson sets. This is not important.
Relax and focus on understanding. Choose one lesson set at level “1.”. Listen to all the lessons init everyday until you understand them 100% of the Audio Story. Go slow. You will improve a lot, even if you listen to only one lesson set for 10 weeks!
