For Graduates of MEFA.
... Are you learning English every day?
In 1911 two teams raced to the South Pole. One was a team of Norwegians led by Roald Amundsen. The other was a team of Brits led by Robert Falcon Scott.
It was a 1400 mile journey, and incredibly dangerous. Both teams were well prepared, with tools, equipment and detailed plans to follow. The only real difference was the strategy they took.
Scott decided that his team would walk as far as possible on good weather days, and rest during bad weather. Amundsen’s team decided they would stick to a strict routine — just 20 miles a day, regardless of weather.
Amundsen’s team made it to the South Pole and back on schedule.
Scott’s team died en route.
If you don’t speak well it's because you don’t have the right English speaking-habits. If you speak slowly and awkwardly… that’s a habit.
If you use unnatural English?
Yes, that’s a habit, too.
If you consistently make the same mistakes again and again… those are all habits.
... Mastering English is about doing the things we know work consistently and over time.
In order to see rapid improvement three things have to be right:
This is your foundation. And getting this right is essential.
All of this is covered in detail in my course, MEFA. Extraordinary English Speakers continues from this.
I’ve long found that the people who get the best results start by building a strong foundation (The First 90 Days) then consistently implement that over time.
Scott and Amundsen didn’t start their legendary race to the South Pole unprepared. They put in months of planning and preparation.
But ultimately, the reason Amundsen succeeded and Scott didn’t was consistent relentless action.
And this is what Extraordinary English Speakers helps you with.
Extraordinary English Speakers is a group of people dedicated to mastering the English language and speaking it without hesitation in all areas of their lives.
People who get the best results are learning English every day, regardless of the weather or whatever else is happening in their lives.
It might just be a few minutes, but as with a journey to the south pole, a little done every day is better than a lot done occasionally.
