54 thoughts on “The Power Learning Podcast – 4 – Find Your Fluency Wedge – Learn Advanced English Podcast

  1. Each of your podcasts is music to my ears. And its nice to see your students so enthusiastic. However I don't really get the idea with the wedge, wedge in the meaning of a peace of cake?

  2. A wedge cuts into something though a small area, and then helps you expand into it, like an axe. For fast fluency, you need to connect with the language as quickly and easily as possible. Then you'll have the motivation and drive to move on to more difficult things. 🙂

  3. awesome …Although I am a teacher , I become like a student who is sooooooooo happy to hear his name refered to by his teacher..I can't believe it !!! Thanks a lot for answering all my questions …That's very kind of you …really you are a very very modest person ..with my full respect

  4. Waouh! What a great english class! I really love it. Thank you for the video. I'm trying to get fluent in english. Actually, I'm french and it's not really easy for me to get what english speaker say. My listening is very bad.

  5. Thanks so much. To improve your listening skills, WATCH more English speakers. The combination of seeing how people move their bodies and mouth as they speak will build your listening ability much faster. 🙂

  6. hello sir i'd like to ask a question about buying the courses .so if i haven't a paypal or visa and so, am I afford to these courses?

  7. Hey, Amadou! 🙂

    Where do you live, and do you know someone who can pay for you with a credit card or PayPal that you can pay back?

  8. Hi Drew! Why are you passionate about Japan? Do you love the musicality of that language? Would you like to learn other languages in the future? 🙂

  9. Hey, Fred. 🙂

    I cam here to study spatial design, specifically traditional Japanese gardening. That's my favorite part of the culture here. I enjoy the language because it's so logical.

    Of course I'm excited to learn other languages, and I plan on doing a lot more traveling, teaching and learning languages as I travel. 🙂

    How many languages do you speak?
