I’m calling it the Five by Five Live Challenge, because I’m going to be giving you 5 live classes a week, for about 5 minutes each, for the next 5 weeks. It’s really five by five by five live, but that’s a bit of a mouthful even for me!
Why am I doing the 5 by 5 Live Challenge? Well, for many people working on improving their American accent, it’s hard to find the time to do the practice you need to make changes in your speech patterns. In my SMART training videos, I give you quick tips for efficient and effective practice.
But here’s the idea - if you take this challenge and spend these 5 minutes, 5 times a week, for 5 weeks, you’ll see a significant change in your speech. You don’t need to sit down for hours and hours to see improvements, but you do need to practice regularly. So here’s an opportunity to get a new habit and really make progress on your goals.
I’m really excited to do this challenge with you. If you aren’t subscribed to the channel yet, or if you haven’t turned on notifications, you might want to do that so you’ll get notified for each new challenge video. As I said, I’m going to do lots of different times, before work, lunchtime, evening, and weekends, so you can catch the live broadcast some of the time, and watch the replays at the most convenient times for you.
You can also go to my website and sign up to be part of the 5 by 5 challenge by email. I’ll send you the video links each time we have a new one and you can watch right in your inbox. Here’s the link to sign up for that.
So, I’ll be back soon with our first five by five live challenge video. We’re going to kick things off by looking at the most frequently used word in English and the errors you might be making on it. Subscribe on YouTube or use the form below to sign up and join me!
