How To Use The Lessons:
Learn Real English!
Each lesson set has a real conversation, a vocabulary lesson and a mini-story lesson for you to listen to. And we've also included the text for each of these, in case you want to read along as you listen. All lessons in a set have the same name. These lessons go together.
Every day, listen to all the lessons in ONE lesson SET (all the lessons with the same name). You will listen to only one set for a week or more. This is very
important. You will only improve quickly if you follow this method-- one lesson set everyday-- the same lesson set every day for a week (or more).
What kind of lessons are in each set, and how should you use them?
*A Text Article (Adobe .pdf file)
Read the article. Do not “study” it. Don’t try to memorize it. Just read it a
couple of times each day and review new words. Use a dictionary to translate
difficult words, if necessary.
*Vocabulary Lesson (MP3)
Just listen. Don’t try to memorize the words.
*Mini-Story Lesson (MP3)
This is the most powerful lesson. First time, just listen. Then, listen and pause
after each question. Answer each question loudly in English, then play
again. Don't worry if you don't understand everything. Don’t worry about
In the Mini-Story, Joe & AJ will do only three things:
1. They will make a statement. After a statement, just say, “Ahhhh” or “Ohhhh”.
2. They will ask a question that you know the answer to. Just answer the
question. You don't need to answer with a sentence. You can answer with
only one or two words.
3. They will ask a question that you don’t know the answer to. Guess. Yell a
4. Again, you can guess with just one (or a few) words. Saying a correct and
exact answer is not important. The most important thing is speed. Try to
answer very quickly (remember, one word is fine). Speed is your goal. You
want short fast answers, not long answers! In the beginning, this may be
difficult. That's OK. Use your pause button. Listen to this lesson many times
every day for at least a week. The Mini-Story is the MOST IMPORTANT
LESSON in the Learn Real English system. Listen to these lessons the most.
Authentic Audio Conversation (MP3):
*Just listen. Relax and enjoy. Listen to it several times each day for at least a
week. Your goal is to understand 100% instantly and automatically.
Suggested Lesson Order (Every Day Using The Same Set):
1. First, read the Conversation Text article. Read and review it, do not “study” it.
Don't try to memorize it.
2. Listen to the Conversation a few times.
3. Listen to the Vocabulary Lesson several times.
4. Listen to the Mini-Story a few times.
Learn Real 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 lessons in the lesson set. Try to listen to each
lesson (in the set) at least two times every day.
*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
*Start with the first lessons (at the top of the list).
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 the 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. Go
slowly. You will improve a lot, even if you listen to only one lesson set for 10
