DEWJ57 | What do you do? ー How to be unforgettable
Episode 57: What do you do? ー How to be unforgettable http://doingenglishPLUS.com What will you say if someone asks you: “What do you do?" Chances are you’ll answer like everybody else. “I’m an English teacher” “I make cakes” “I’m an engineer” Booooooring. … and utterly forgettable. The brain only pays attention to interesting things, and subsequently … you’ll be forgotten in seconds. So what do you do? Well, that’s where the elevator pitch comes in. A very short explanation of what you do designed to make people go... “Wow!” My basic elevator pitch is: I help experts master English so they can get shit done, faster, with less stress and fewer headaches. Which is…. OK. It has all the most important elements. It’s short, concise, and it outlines what I do, and for whom. But it’s still not very memorable. Well, there’s a very useful advertising formula that you can use in this situation to convey the same information in a way sounds much more interesting. A.I.D.A. Attention, Interest, Desire, Action. And along with this week’s Doing English+ lesson, all about elevator pitches, I’ve recorded a bonus lesson that will teach you how to use this formula to make sure people never forget you. The lesson is out tomorrow.

DEWJ55 | How to be a millionaire taxi driver (or other)
Episode 55: How to become a millionaire taxi driver (or other) http://doingenglishPLUS.com Yesterday’s Podcast got mixed reactions. Some good. Others complaining. Nothing new there. “Yes, but…" “My situation is different…" “That won’t for me…" Bollocks is it different, and how do you know if you never try? For example, one rather sarcastic comment read: I was a taxi driver, I could work for 24 hours a day. Should I had driven a taxi without sleep time? ー Takuya Yamamoto Yeah, yeah, I get it. This is a pretty typical attitude, though. And it’s one that holds you back. For two reasons. The main, and most important reason is something I talk about in detail in June’s Doing English+ newsletter. But the second problem here is that Takuya, like many people, is limited by his thinking. Say you work for $10 an hour, and you want to increase your wage. You just work more hours. So instead of working 8 hours, you work 10 hours. Very quickly you reach your limit…. … and you’re left feeling bitter and frustrated like your friend Takuya. But in reality this kind of thinking is totally wrong. The Pareto Principle tells us things are never, ever linear. 80% of a result always comes from 20% of the causes. Let’s say you work for 10 hours, and make $100. How much is that per hour? If you say $10, you’re totally wrong. It’s actually more like $80 for one hour, then the remaining $20 spread over 8 hours. Essentially you could have worked 1 hour, then gone home and you’d still have 80% of the money. The question then is simply ー What did you do during those super-productive 1 hour, and how can you do more of that? This isn’t as simple as it seems, but with a little creative thinking, it’s not really that hard. Don’t believe this can be done for a taxi driver? Go read this article: http://www.earlytorise.com/lessons-from-a-millionaire-taxi-driver/ Then ask yourself, how can I do the same thing?

DEWJ52 | How to make more time to study English
Need to make time to study? I know the feeling. Life gets busy, and suddenly things like English just don’t get done. We have a sub group called “The 5am Club”. Get up early, get stuff done. You get the idea. But why 5am? Well, it all started in 2010. I’d just started by masters (I did it online) and suddenly found myself having to work a full time job and study a completely new subject at the same time. To be frank, I was struggling. Work was busy… And we had a crying baby at home. Studying wasn’t happening. So I needed to find a time where I could study every day undisturbed. My wife and son got up at about 6:30 every day. Which made 5am perfect. Of course, in the beginning it was tough, but as I got used to it, study progressed. As study progressed… I got more motivated to get up. Which in turn helped me get more done, until eventually I finished my masters. Listen to the full story in today’s podcast.

DEWJ50 | What is the hardest language in the world?
What is the hardest language to learn? This is a good question, but of course the hardest language depends on your first language. For English speakers it’s Japanese. The Foreign Service Institute has a language difficulty ranking based on five categories. It shows what most difficult language to learn for native English speakers is, as well as of course, the easiest language to learn. They then indicate languages WITHIN the categories that are more difficult than the other languages in that category. With me so far? In the top 5 category we have: Arabic, Cantonese, Mandarin, *Japanese, Korean These would be considered the most difficult languages to learn. Of course, if any of these are you first language, that will explain why English is hard to learn. You’ll notice that only Japanese is indicated as more difficult. Making it the hardest language to learn for English speakers. But how hard is it to learn Japanese, really? Is japanese hard to learn? Well… yes and no. We discuss this in this week’s Doing English Podcast episode. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X4-ab-aLSuk Subscribe on iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/podcast/the-doing-english-podcast/id1054863578?mt=2 Subscribe on Stitcher: http://www.stitcher.com/podcast/julian/the-doing-english-weekly-rant

DEWJ49 | English is hard... why?
Is English easy … ? Many English teachers like to say it is... But I disagree. The way to master English is simple (not easy — simple), but a second language is always going to be hard. Mastering english language is never going to be straight forward simply because it’s DIFFERENT to your first language. Recently someone asked me... “Why is English hard?" Of course, English difficulty is going to change depending on your first language. But I thought about this... And 4 things came to mind as to why English is hard. There are other reasons, of course. But these are 4 things I think make English tricky. To hear all about them… Listen to this week’s Doing English Podcast Episode. We’ll talk about why English prepositions are so difficult... How to learn them... And several points related to the history of the English language.

DEWJ46 | Can you learn English just by watching films?
Films are great. I love watching films. But is watching films a good way to improve your English? Good question. Between the middle of November and the middle of December I watched a Japanese film every day for a whole month. 30 films. About 60 hours of watching in Japanese. In this week’s Podcast episode I’ll tell you everything I learned…. Why watching films is good... And why watching films is not good.
