We've established that conventional ESL doesn't help you to speak (see previous videos in this series). We have also established that ESL fails to teach you to speak because of the process you go through, mainly reading and writing language. So is there a cognitive process that can help you to speak better English?
Yes, there is, but it requires lots of the right kind of data. Data? Yes, data? Because when we hear some words and understand them our brains, like computers doing voice recognition, are processing data and looking for patterns of information that mean something to us. This video explains what ESL data is and how listening to the right kind of data can help you to speak English.
Think about this: What is the right kind of data? How much do you need? How do you create it, store it and use it for maximum effect?
