This eBook is currently available on Amazon. But I have decided to let you guys read the full content of my book through my website. All I’m asking is you please share my website to everyone you know who might as well find it useful. Thank you so much.
You may be wondering who I am to write a book about learning English. What qualifies me to be an author? Do I have enough expertise? Do I have enough certifications, degrees, and PhDs?
Please hold your horses. A good deal about me will come out through the stories in the following pages, but here are a few details that may be helpful to know now.
I started teaching English as a Second Language in 2008. I’ve been an English teacher to such nationalities as Costa Ricans, South Koreans, Vietnamese, Japanese, and Chinese. I have taught all age groups from kids as young as 3 years old to high school students, college hopefuls, and adults as old as 65 years old.
I’ve been an English tutor to people who are well-established professionals in their home country. Some of them work as doctors, lawyers, engineers, scientists, and college professors.
These learners whose English proficiency range from zero to advanced, enroll in online English classes for a number of reasons.
But among all these known reasons, there’s one I believe that outshines the rest: They want to improve their speaking and writing skills to meet work demands and pursue better job positions.
English is considered the language of opportunity. It is the most dominant language of travel and business. It also allows Hollywood movies to reach an unlimited viewing audience.
The vast majority of latest discoveries in science and technology are basically published in English. English being amazingly everywhere is undoubtedly the world’s international language.
Over the years, I have gathered incredible amount of insights as my students attempt and struggle to learn this lingua franca. Countless times, I’ve been asked, “Teacher Kenjie, how to learn English fast?”
Every time a student begged me for answers, my brain would scream, “I HAVE NO F***ING IDEA.” Admittedly, I had difficulty answering it myself. I found it so hard to sum up my ideas in a sentence or two. It’s just one but a kind of question that requires tons of explanations.
Before long, I saw myself in front of my second-hand Lenovo laptop, ideas flowing and fingers flying as I was creating this book.
Written by an author you have never heard of, I would like to offer my viewpoints on this million-dollar question:
HOW TO LEARN ENGLISH FAST?
Each student faces a different challenge. It may have to do with either one or all of the following:
There are countless books and blogs out there that promise to help you improve the above areas. Some of those are actually fabulous, while others are practically boring.
Do not misunderstand me. I don’t claim being an authority on the subject of grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation. I am not going to be able to compete with the reference books written by language professionals (linguists, grammarians, and editors) and I don’t intend to. I am just a regular guy from a remote Philippine barangay.
But why should you read my book right now? What makes it worthwhile out of the thousands of others on the market? What can I tell you that hasn’t been said? What can I say that might impact your life?There are two reasons I can give. First, I have a unique story to tell. It’s a story that will inspire you, empower you, and help you jumpstart your quest to master English. And second, my book contains actual study methods I have used to get better at English. No B.S., No nonsense.
English is not my native language. I started to become interested in it only in the summer of 1998 right after I finished high school. I had never paid a single attention to it from the first day I became a Grade 1 pupil up until the day I left high school.
You have no idea how hard learning English was for me. Its basic grammatical rules had been for me—a mystery. Just like you, I struggled too. No one was there to coach me. It had been all me. Just me.
