To break the ice, I want to tell you a short story.

In November 2015, I received an email from Hai, a student at Posts and Telecommunications Institute of Technology in Vietnam. In the email, he declared:

“I’ve been trying to learn English for ages with so many different techniques. My English, however, didn’t change at all. I don’t know if the methods weren’t good or if I applied them in the wrong way. Can you please help me figure it out? I really need to speak English better, and soon! Many thanks.”

I asked him to read the following paragraph out loud, record it, and send it back to me:

Mike and Shawnie are watching TV when a commercial for the latest iPhone comes on. They both pay close attention to the ad. Mike pulls his iPhone from his pocket and looks at it.

Finally,

…. we’ve identified a problem that Hai and 90% of ESL learners face when learning to speak English.

“Hi,

Thanks for your mail.

Do you want to try our proven technique?

After following our special technique, we bet you will learn to speak English effectively in a short time.”

You can be the master of English grammar, reading or writing skills, but your speaking skill is a disaster. We can help you leap this obstacle!

OK, back to my story. When thinking about Hai’s problem, we came up with an idea that could help him improve his English speaking skills in a very short time. We developed a new way named “The Catching Up Technique”.

Let’s take a look at Hai’s results after practicing The Catching Up Technique.

  • Speak English correctly with every single word.
  • Add the right intonation.
  • Use the most appropriate English speaking speed.

Compared with original audios of native English speakers, you will see the surprising improvement the technique helped Hai achieve.

3 Practical Steps: The Catching Up Technique

Before talking about the steps, let’s explain: “What exactly is The Catching Up Technique?”

The Catching Up Technique is the way you listen carefully to native English speakers and make your best effort to match their precise pronunciation, speed, pauses, and stress, as well as intonation in word phrases and complete sentences.

Here are 3 Steps to follow with The Catching Up Technique:

Step 1: Choose the right audio to listen to

Step 2: Train your ears with English

Step 3: Practice Catching Up more and more to speak English fluently

“Catching Up” is one of the most effective techniques used in the world today to practice speak English naturally. It’s only specific requirement is that you need to access 2-speed listening materials.

The challenge for ESL beginners is to listen carefully and match their speech to native speakers. Thus, it’s imperative that you have a slow-speed version of practice material to catch up to the native speech patterns more easily and accurately.

Now, let’s go over the steps again to practice speaking English with Catching Up.

Step 1: Choose the Right Audio

You must be use audio with 2 speaking speeds: The normal speed of native speakers, and a second slow speed (about 50% of the normal speed).

You must use an audio with transcripts.

At first, you need a short audio (1-2 minutes long) that’s easy to practice; Then gradually, you can find longer and more difficult materials to practice.

Step 2: Train your Ears with English

  1. Listen to the chosen audio at the slow speed 1-2 times. Don’t use the transcript yet– You don’t have to understand every detail at this point.
  2. Listen again 1-2 times more, and this time, use transcripts and dictionaries to fully understand.
  3. Don’t use transcripts and dictionaries in the next step–just listen again and again until you understand every detail, and can say the main ideas out loud.
  4. Listen again to make sure that you fully understand.
  5. Finally, listen to the audio at the native speaker speed until you follow it comfortably and easily, without using transcripts or dictionaries.

Step 3: Practice Catch Up to Speak English Fluently

  1. Listen to the audio at the slow speed; While you listen, read the transcript and try to follow the audio. This step aims to make you familiar with reading the text out loud.
  2. Don’t use the transcript; While you listen, say the transcript out loud, and try to “catch up” with the audio.
  3. Don’t use the transcript; Listen and say the transcript out loud while “catching up” with the audio. Do this until you feel you’ve “caught up” with the speed, pronunciation, and intonation of the speaker.
  4. Use the audio at the native speed; Use the transcript if necessary, and you will “catch up” to the audio.
  5. Again, don’t use the transcript, and “catch up” to the speaker in the audio until you equal their native speed and feel that your speaking is much more fluent.

That’s it! That’s all you need to do for now. Simple, isn’t it? No sweat! It really is a piece of cake with “Catching Up”.

But wait! Notice that the main purpose of this step is to get the sense of English sounds and imitate native speakers. Along these lines, pay attention to listening and speaking, and try to practice speaking English without a transcript.

IT’S YOUR TURN…NOW! LET’S GET TO IT!!

The Catching Up Technique is one of the easiest and most effective techniques to improve your English speaking skills.

Remember: You need to train this technique enough to make it your learning habit. It’s the best way to speak English naturally after 1 month. Native speakers of English always say: “Let’s ‘catch up’ with our family and friends!” Now, you can do the same.
