Several weeks ago, I had the pleasure to interview a long time author I’ve gotten to know over Twitter. Mitsuyo has written 24 books, and her main focus now has been to encourage English learners to practice English with social media.
Most of her books are in Japanese, but there are several in Chinese and Korean as well. So if you speak any of those languages, take a look at her books to practice English.
Wouldn’t it be great if English was spoken just like how it’s written?
I think that woud make both teachers and students very happy.
Unfortunately, it’s not. Being able to read and write English is very different than being able to understand and use the spoken language. In fact, when most people say they want better English skills, they’re usually referring to speaking.
In today’s interview, I talk with Misako Yoke about her first experience abroad when she discovered real English for the first time. She gives her own very entertaining solution to the problem, and what she thinks is most important about improving spoken English.
Listen to the full interview below. Misako is an English teacher and author with numerous projects–take a look here. More
Today is the first interview of the new interview series, How to Improve Spoken English. I talk with Robby Kukurs, the creator of the English Harmony system, about his path to English fluency and everything it has taught him about what is really important if you want to speak English better.
