Do you want to speak English more fluently?  The key is to learn to "expand" your communication. 

Do you want to be more confident in everyday conversations? Or maybe you want to feel like English really is your language? That you can use it like a native speaker? To say whatever you want? 

Then this course is perfect for you!

Lingual Net's Super Learner Fluency Course is designed to help you become a more fluent, confident, and engaged speaker of English. 

In this course, Dr. Michael Rost, will teach you powerful communication strategies.  You will learn the secrets to successful conversation.

Dr. Michael Rost is a well-known researcher and teacher trainer.  He has a Ph.D. in Linguistics and has written several books and articles on English communication.

Dr. Rost has identified the "secrets" that turn you into a "super learner." These "secrets" are actually strategies and study habits that successful language learners use.

In this course, we focus on the topic of "Food".  We will focus on five main questions:

  1. What’s your favorite food?

  2. Is there any food you dislike?

  3. How important is diet to your health?

  4. What are some popular foods for visitors to your country?

  5. What is one popular dish in your country? Can you describe it in detail?

We will watch three different interviews, where the students — just like you –  are asked these same five questions. And we’re going to focus on their communication strategies. And then we’re going to follow up with some study skills in pronunciation, grammar, and vocabulary.

You will have the opportunity to study grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation and speaking strategies through the course Workbook, online quizzes, and online forums.

OK, are you ready?

Welcome to the course.

Mastery Of Conversations

Master the skill of communication - so you can engage in positive, fun conversations with anyone, anytime!

Created by Josh Dryden - Social Skills Trainer

Students: 2965, Price: Free

Mastery Of Conversations

The skill of being able to communicate effectively and engage in conversations is not as common as you might think.

We think of conversation skills as a 'foundation' communication skill - one you can build on to develop a wide range of other social skills.

Social skills are not something everyone is born with, especially if you're an introvert - but it doesn't need to stay that way.

You don't need to be the loudest, most extroverted person in the room to engage positively with other people and have a great time in social settings, you just need the knowledge and skills in your 'social toolbox' so you can take your interactions to the next level.

In this course we'll cover a range of topics including;

  • Understanding successful conversations

  • Preparation

  • Introductions

  • Conversation starters

  • Exit strategies

  • Extra tips

  • Practice

This course includes specific tips and advice for a range of situations; ranging from work, to parties and everything in between.

The beauty is that these skills can transfer to any social situation and go hand-in-hand with other social skills.

We've utilised specific tips and techniques as well as targeted examples to pack a lot of value into this short-course so you can easily absorb everything we've put together and build up your confidence in as short a time as possible.
