Just a note:

Many things that get posted here are automatically flagged as spam by Google+ . 

Until now, I have tried to monitor what is flagged, and either accept/reject appropriate/inappropriate content.  However, the list keeps getting longer and longer, and it is taking a lot of time to go through and sort...

Because of this, I will no longer be checking any posts that are automatically flagged as spam.   If there is something that you really think may have been flagged by mistake, contact me and I will look into it.

My apologies, and thanks for your understanding.

+JORGE LUIZ hi. That's a good question. The only thing you can really do to improve your fluency is to practice speaking.
If you can't find any opportunities to speak, you need to try to do lots of listening.
Find stories that are easy to understand, and listen to them many times, until you can tell the stories by yourself.

Interesting websites  - 
 
Finally!  My super busy month is over. 
I haven't been able to upload anything for a month... Sorry guys... 
Here's another listening lesson for you all, yay!

Watch this space, I really want to do regular video chats in the morning (Japan Time). 
I haven't had much luck testing things out yet, but each failure brings us closer to success, right.

Staying positive, and hope to speak to you all soon!
Improve your English by listening to simple English sotries. Listening to natural English is the best way to improve your spoken English.

Story
Tagline
From the classroom to the boardroom!
Introduction
Originally from London, UK, where I was a freelance trumpet player and teacher, I now live in Tokyo as a freelance English teacher, and hopefully soon, as a freelance trumpeter again; got to hit the practice studio!  My passions in life are trumpet playing and working with others to set and achieve big goals.  My motto is: Aspire to Inspire!

I have established the website http://mbaenglishonline.com/ specifically for business English learners.  Many business men and women are simply too busy to take time out to study  with a teacher in person, so this website aims to make it possible for them to study in their own time from where ever they are.

Lessons cover pre and post MBA from writing academic essays and discussing complex business topics through to resume writing assistance and English interview seminars in conjunction with my partners.  MBA English Online also maintains a working relationship with recruiters here in Japan to aid the business English student find the perfect job: http://mbaenglishonline.com/post-mba/.

The website also boasts free downloadable vocabulary lists: http://mbaenglishonline.com/resource/  and free interactive vocabulary games and exercises:  http://mbaenglishonline.com/resource/mba-crosswords/ covering both business and MBA specific words and general English.

Feel free to contact me at ross@mbaenglishonline.com for more information.
