In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event.

5つの原則 ①自分に関わる部分に集中する ②最初からコミュニケーションの道具として使う ③伝える内容を理解しておく ④言語学習は肉体的トレーニング ⑤リラックスして、完璧を目指さない ★注意力・関連性・意味・記臆 7つの実践 ①たくさん聞く(目立つ部分に集中する) ②言葉よりも意味を知る ③単語を組み合わせて伝える練習をする ④頻繁に使われる部分を覚える(英語は1000語で85%、3000語で98%カバーできる)  1週目: 使える言い回しを覚える  2週目:簡単な名詞、代名詞、動詞、形容詞を使ってコミュニケーションの練習  3週目:繋ぎ言葉(だけど、しかし、だから等)を練習する  4週目: 〃  ⑤言語の親を作る   特徴❶理解してくれる人     ❷間違いを無理に訂正しない人     ❸伝えた内容をフィードバックしてくれる人     ❹理解できる易しい言葉を使ってくれる人 ⑥ネイティブの顔の動かし方を真似する ⑦単語は、自分の中にあるイメージや感覚と直接結びつける

I dont believe Chris was fluent in madarin in 6 months. I can guarantee everyone will still be at the beginner level in 6 months. There are still going to be a whole lot of vocabulary and grammer you have to deal with. I do believe he has been learning mandarin for 10 or more years. Mandarin is so far from English, why people make these claims is absurd.

In 8th grade I took German but didn't do very well in that class, 10 years later my aunt and uncle are visiting from Germany and are at our house showing us pictures of their house and food spreads they put out for a party. Man they eat a lot of cake. I remember some of the German I learned in class and he knew some English when he was prisoner of war here in America. Before I knew it I was speaking full sentences in German. My girlfriend called and I answered the phone and just naturally spoke German to her. I was wondering why she was confused and said to me, "I think I got the wrong number. " I was stammering trying to think of the words in English to communicate to her before she hung up. I guess the thing i learned is when you're trying to communicate in another language is your internal communication to yourself has to be in that language. I remember when I was struggling for the words it just switched over in my head and everything just flowed.

I completely disagree. I Have been studying English for years and years, I follow a lot od podcast, I attend a lot of meeting but I continue to understand nothing what native English speakers say. I hate English language, they eat the words and use a lot of contract forms. Latin languages are more more more better

That's right, feeling young again and full of energy, is just one of the many side effects of slimming down. Listen, it doesn't matter if try to go'gle something similar to Jenessa Venspurke's Flat Belly Tonic Guide (which you can use to get to your ideal weight in under eight weeks) or any other kind of surgical treatment, the freedom will be worth it by itself.

As a multilingual, I can assure you . Listening is the single best way for getting good at any language. Even if you don't do nothing, you just watch contents in that language with subtitles every day for 1-2-3 hours for 1 month. Take it from me, you could unconsciously learn a lot of that language.

Bueno, no he podido acabar el vídeo. Muchos interrogantes. ¿Por qué no ha hablado en chino para demostrar qué entiende por "fluent"? No menciona más que su experiencia de aprender a hablar "fluent" el chino. ¿Alguien lo conoce y me puede decir si este señor habla más lenguas? Con la edad que tiene y haciendo el cálculo podría hablar bastantes más a seis meses por cada una de ellas. ¿Qué entiende por aprender una lengua? ¿Entender la oralidad y hablarla o también entender la escritura y escribirla? Resulta curioso que la media de los hablantes de japonés no conocen ni un cuarto de todos los kanjis que se pueden usar y se pasan la vida conviviendo con esa escritura. Bueno, parece más bien una charla curiosa en la que un tipo te cuenta que hay que mover los músculos de la cara y mover el cuerpo. Vamos, una gilipollez.

Yeah, but there is a missing component. There needs to be a minimum of the written word to speak the language, because input comprehension is not sufficient on its own especially for those who want to learn the grammar.

I'm so happy that i can understood about 60 percent in speech. Ted is a good channel helps me improve my English. I really want to control my English skills in the near future. If i fortunately, maybe after 6 months i can do it well. But i think that studying English is a my mission in whole life. So, anyway i'll never give up. Trying my best and improving English day by day. My success is comming!

I've been struggling with english for 30 years and I struggle with greek for two years now. If those advices are relevant, I'm pretty sure it will still take much more than six months before fluency... The easiest one was spanish, but it's quite close to french, my native language, so it was much easier to learn.
