hey guys welcome to my channel in this video I will teach you how to understand native speakers because I know if their speech can be so confusing and I've been there I've done that I still cannot understand certain groups of people in certain communities if you're interested continue watching this video [Music] before I get into the topic I have a special announcement for you my team linguae trip and I we're putting together an email campaign we're putting together a lot of newsletters to help you guys learn English who work into newsletters where we gonna teach you how to learn English faster you're gonna get curated information from my videos you're gonna get like top five top ten idioms that you can use advice on how to get job brought like a lot of useful information provided by me and my team so if you're interested in being a part of this exclusive email list there is a link below just give us your email when I'm gonna spam you it's all gonna be very useful you can unsubscribe anytime the link is below and I will see you soon in my next email thing number one that you have to remember is that a language that I use a language that you learn at school can be very very different from what some native speakers produce because there are a lot of drop letters like I saw them villains are song instead of saying I saw them a native speaker would be like Assam yesterday and this them is really really subtle so you really need to learn to catch it and you just need to learn that there are a lot of job letters and just get used to that another thing that native speakers do is linking words what the in time works best for you so if I wrote it it would be a day in time like one word it's like singing and I think if you're singing in your own language I would HIGHLY advise starting singing in English because when I started singing in America my singing teacher will be like marina why are you singing like that you are not talking like that and this is something I had to work on making my speech more smooth linking words and also working on vowels that was my another mistake somehow I was singing with my mouth can a half shut and yours like no American language is about vowels you have to have really bright walls and this is another thing I was working on with my singing teacher so again two things that you should remember drop letters happen all the time they don't teach you that at school and the second linking words you can practice that through singing next step number two how you can practice even if you don't sing listen to any song that you like open the lyrics and try to sing along and you will notice so many weird things like another thing my singing teacher told me is that for a lot of Americans it's easier to pronounce what instead of what just because when you're breathing out on the first letter it makes it somehow easier to pronounce or whatever so sometimes you will hear people saying what oh where like where she does this whole often and where I don't do that so it's a little weird for me but if you listen to American songs you would definitely notice that especially I think I've heard it a lot on the East Coast and when I was watching the house of cars the TV shows they did it all the time again this is something that Americans do when I was listening for Britney Spears song baby one more time I couldn't understand why is baby transforming to something uncomfortable like this is the way she pronounces baby this is the way it works a native speaker would understand me you wouldn't unless you go through lyrics unless you try to sing along with the singer you would understand that these things yes they exist I was like super effaced by the British language because when I came to the UK there's this city called reading but if you spell it it's like reading like you know the verb reading and I was like why I you saying reading is there reading and my friend was like just because we do that I like Greenwich though part of London you like if you follow the English language rules you would never read Greenwich you would really like Greenwich or something you're sweet Greenwich it's great but this is totally wrong again this is what native speakers do the word is written in some way there's a rule how to read it but when you read it you don't follow any rules and this is again something you learned with practice and you're like probably really overwhelm now and you're like marina is there live on the things that I should know there's actually a limit so a native speaker on average uses from 1,000 to 5,000 words in his speech there are 2 to 3000 words that I used Wiley and if you know 2 or 3,000 words those words in English you probably won't have any difficulties understanding a native speaker from the vocabulary point of view because sometimes you know the speech is so complicated you don't understand every third word and this has nothing to do with your listening skills it only has to do with your vocabulary so you're at the stage where you're like listening to my video and you're like I cannot understand every fifth word of what she's saying I would recommend focusing in your vocabulary if your problem right now is actually understanding the way I pronounce words or the way native speakers pronounce words by the way they link words together this is all about practice so just follow tips from this video and you couldn't be advanced and listening and three or four months another advice from me watch native speakers mouth if you cannot get the meaning by just listening to them when you watch their mouth you're like oh this is the way they're putting it together and it gives you an additional idea and in a lot of cases it's a lot easier to understand a native speaker if you're together in a room because hey you know the context B you can watch his mouth so the second easiest thing to understand if you're watching a TV show or you're watching YouTube blog switch on the subtitle switch on captions and you would be able to follow whatever the native speaker is saying and then read the subtitles but please focus on their mouth don't focus on subtitles there it's just there to help you so you could stay engaged with the video because sometimes you just lose sense of what is happening but again watching native speakers mouth would actually help you pronounce things in the right way and understand them at the same time and if you want to check if you're advanced or not try calling customer support in English this is the hardest thing ever currently looking for a new assistant and the level of English that I want from my assistant this level when you're able to call someone in the US or in the UK or whatever english-speaking country and tell them that they're doing something wrong and you want something faster from them sometimes I have this partners that are you know delaying payments etc and I want my assistant to be able to just call them make sure she's sounding or he's sounding very little and I think this is like the top level of English when you can call someone and be frustrated and actually get what you want so if you want to practice that and you can call customer support of any like big a commerce company or whatever and just practice your English just ask them I know called booking to a comer Expedia and ask them what's the best hotel in New York ask for commendations and see how you perform over the phone like this is top level the next advice if you're just starting out with understanding native speakers I would say that and a lot of people would agree with me Canadian accent is actually the easiest accent out there for me if I was like a picture of British and American accent it's a little more reserved than American accent and it's a little more vague compared to the British one so I would start with Canadian accent if you're really struggling to understand people I started with a British accent and it was a nightmare I was fourteen years old I was like if this happens in every single language and I'm screwed like how am I gonna speak German but with German it was like pretty clear there were no big differences between access and I was pretty cool with German but with English you know if you started in America it's easier if you start in Canada it's easier if you start with the British accent might be a little tricky so choose something that's easier for you that works for you at this level and my last tip is that if you are still struggling to understand people try and avoid big groups of tative speakers because this is where it gets really confusing because when native speakers are in their own environment they forget that you're a non-native speaker they start using all the slang words they start referring to topics you have no idea about they start speaking very fast and I hate going to bars with native speakers like even now it gets so loud I have to scream I hate screaming my voice is naturally not very loud and I to be in that environment where I don't understand half of what people are saying because it's so loud and again they're speaking too fast and you know at the same time I don't really like to be in that conversation because I have to scream a lot so I would avoid those situations if you're still at the beginning of your journey of trying to understand native speakers because that would be intimidating you'll be confused and you'll just be discouraged you would be like I'll never gonna get what they're talking about so just avoid those situations and stay peaceful and take a small step every day to understanding native speakers that was it for me guys if you're you know you're subscribed to
