The course that makes it easier to decode spontaneous conversations by fast-talking Americans



At first, you understand, and the conversation goes pretty well. But as the conversation continues, they speak faster and faster. You're lost and don't know what to do...

“Should I tell them to slow down? That’s embarrassing.”

“Should I ask them to repeat, again? I’ll slow the conversation.”

“Should I just smile and pretend I’m following? I’ll feel like an idiot!”

"Why can't I understand?!"
(Me, trying to learn French in France in 2003)

I've been in the same embarrassing situation...

When I studied French at school, I was the best student in my class. It was easy to understand the scripted audio conversations in my coursebook.

Then, I came to France…

What happened in conversations destroyed my linguistic confidence, every time.

“What is this language they’re speaking?? That’s not the French I learned!”

I became uncomfortable, embarrassed, as I asked people to repeat. Just one more time. But slower please.

“OK, that didn’t help. Why can’t I understand?!”

All the time I had spent listening to French movies and songs didn't prepare me for the real world...I thought it would. But I was wrong.

  • “If I watch movies in English, it will become easier to understand conversations”

    No scientific evidence supports this. Yes, it’s fun. Yes, it feels like you’re doing something to improve your English. Yes, it’s better than nothing.

    When watching a movie you’re only testing your comprehension, not learning how to better understand.

    Learning how to understand is the key.

    Because in real life, you can’t rewind the conversation to listen again. You have to learn to decode the sounds in real time.

  • “I just need to go live in an English-speaking country for 6 months"

    I thought this too: “I’ll go to France, I’ll be immersed in the language, and I’ll learn it like a child learns their native language. It’ll be easy!”


    You are not a child anymore.

    Your brain does not absorb the language the same way a child does.

    Plus, there is an advantage of learning as an adult: when someone explains something, you can understand, analyze, apply it, and progress faster when you work at it.

  • “If I listen to CNN and podcasts all day every day, my ear will train itself eventually”

    Like with movies, no research justifies this. It’s passive listening. You consume the sound, but you do not actively work to better understand.

    There is a BIG difference between passively hearing English and actively listening to improve your comprehension.

    Sure, passive listening has a role in improving your comprehension, but you need active training too to make it quicker, easier, and balanced.

    It’s like with food: Vegetables are great, but you also need protein, bread, and fruit.
    A healthy balance is the key to good development!

We've all met someone who has lived in an English-speaking country or “studied” English for years,
but still can’t follow conversations between native speakers. It's very painful to see.

Why can't they understand better?

Because there’s a BIG difference between listening a lot (even in immersion) and truly learning to understand.

To learn faster, you need someone to teach you the sounds, the vocabulary, the culture

You don't have to struggle or wait years to understand fast conversations

What's the cost of doing nothing?

Here’s a true story from a client. We’ll call her Valerie:

“I moved to Florida 2 years ago to follow my dream and create my company, a small surveillance company. Every day we call clients, receive clients, and go on-site to their home.

I studied English for 12 years and even if I’m immersed in American English now, it’s still very difficult for me to understand, especially on the phone.

I avoid it and delegate it to one of my American employees as much as possible.

How can I be credible if I can’t make a simple phone call without being dependent on an employee?

When I can’t understand a potential client, I ask them to send me an email with their questions. The client is polite and agrees, but then I receive no email, so I lose the opportunity."

"I'm losing money because I can't understand my American clients!"

Valerie lost business in the past because she had difficulties understanding clients.

When we opened the course earlier this year, she didn't hesitate to join.

"It's a very small price to pay to feel comfortable & credible with clients, to understand them, and do my job better," she says. "I'll have a return on my investment quickly!"
