This is a very long "about us", but it is worth reading.
Hi. My my name is Bill Wilson. I am the creator of NativeCoach,
which is ironic because I was the world's worst language student. At
least I was before I learned how to learn. I am going to tell you exactly what you need to do to become
Fluent in English.. I share my method for free to anybody that is
willing to take a few minutes and read my story. Even if you do not choose
to take advantage of our membership plan for the NativeCoach system, I am sure you
will learn something that will help you achieve your fluency goals.
First, let me give you some background about myself. I speak two
languages, English and Japanese. English is my first language. I started
learning Japanese when I was 21 years old.
up, I loved the idea of learning a foreign language. When I was a
child, I would go to the library and get all sorts of foreign language
dictionaries and dreamed of someday going overseas and talking to
people in a foreign language. For me, high school was my first chance
to learn a language. They offered two languages, Spanish and French. I
immediately signed up for French. I was so excited when the first day
of class came. The teacher taught us how to introduce ourselves, and
ask about others, "mon nom est Bill!" It seemed easy enough, but as the
days went on, I found myself getting further and further behind the
class. I struggled to pronounce most of the words we were learning.
Also, I was having trouble memorizing the vocabulary words. When the
teach called on me, it was a complete embarrassment. I could see I
would make a bad grade in the class, so I consulted with the teacher
and got the class dropped. That was my first failure with a foreign
The next year I took the Spanish
class, thinking that Spanish must be easier. For some kids it came more easily, but I struggled, and eventually gave up.
I had failed 2 times, but his time I had to complete a foreign
4 years later, I am a senior at the University of Texas. It is the
summer before my graduating year. I knew I had a language requirement to
graduate, but I had been putting it off until my last year. Not only did
I have to take the minimum 1 year of language, but I also had to make up
for not completing a language in high school. So, there I was, 1 year
before I graduated, with 2 years (four semesters) of language I
had to make up. So, I had to attend summer school. Knowing I struggled with foreign languages, I talked to a friend with a
father who was a professor a the university. He gave me some
interesting advice. He told me not to take French, German or Spanish,
which are usually easier for English speakers to learn. He said that
instead, I should take the most difficult language offered at the
school, because the teachers of those languages are generally happy
students are interested in that language and are reluctant to fail
students if they are trying hard.
So, I chose the most difficult language offered, Japanese. I was nervous
about this, as I could not drop out of the class once I started it and
still graduate on time.
My interest in Japanese was a fluke
The plan worked. The class started with 35 students. Since this was
summer school and the class is condensed, we had to learn Hiragana and
Katakana in one week. The second day of class only 15 students showed
up. The other 20 had dropped the course, fearing their grade average
would be in jeopardy. The class ended up with 12 students. We got
to know the teachers quickly, and I even because friends with the
teacher assistant. I had to work hard for my grades, but I passed the course.
I did well on the written tests, enough to compensate for the terrible
results I got on oral tests.
I complete all of my requirements for foreign language, and in the
process, made some Japanese friends. I graduated that next Spring and
planned to go to Japan to study for a year. I still had this dream of
actually being able to speak a foreign language, after all, if I lived
in Japan, certainly I would become fluent, right???
I WAS COMPLETELY WRONG!!! Just because you live overseas
doesn't mean you will automatically learn a
went to Japan thinking that if I just live there, I could learn how to
speak Japanese. I got a part time job teaching English so I could
afford to pay tuition at a full time Japanese school. I did not know
very much about schools, so I chose my Japanese school out of the Town
Pages (the Japanese equivalent of the Yellow Pages). I went to the one
with the largest ad. It was a school in Tokyo sub center called
Shibuya, and after I signed up, I realized I had made a mistake. The
school was for students that were trying to get into Japanese
universities, mostly Chinese and Korean students who could already
speak Japanese. The school was focused on reading and writing. But I
wanted to learn to speak! I had already paid tuition for the first
semester, so I decided to complete the course. Besides, I figured by
listening to the Japanese in class for 6 hours a day, I would be
speaking well in no time. That was not the case. I worked incredibly
hard and In one year I could read the Nikkei (the Japanese equivalent
of the Wall Street Journal) and write well, and I could understand what
was being said in the classroom and easy conversation. But even after a
year of living in Japan and studying very hard, I could not speak. Does
this sound familiar? It is just like many of the Japanese friends. Most
can all read and write English well, but can not speak comfortably and
have trouble understanding.
I was a complete failure, I simply did not have the natural ability
to learn, or perhaps I was already too old to master a foreign language?
So, I had failed yet again. I was determined to continue, even though
I had promised my family I would return to the US after a year in Japan.
However, I didn't want to go home failing at my goal. So, I used my reading and writing ability to get a job
in a computer networking subsidiary of a very large
publishing company in Japan. They hired me as a liaison between their
Tokyo, London and New York offices. Mostly I exchanged faxes, and translated
Japanese technical documents and sent them to the US office. While
this wasn't exactly my dream job, it was here that I would meet a person that would show me how to learn
Advice from one person changed everything
My first boss was amazing. His English was perfect, absolutely
native, as if he had grown up in the US. He took me out drinking after work one day, and I explained how
hard I was working at becoming fluent, but that I perhaps just simply
have no ability to speak a second language.
He assured me that I could and told me a story that changed
everything for me. He was 24 years old when he went to the US to study
for his PHD at one of the world's most prestigious universities. He
could understand books and scientific material even better than most
native English speakers, and he could write just as well. What shocked
me is that he explained that even though he got
accepted into one of the world's most prestigious schools., he could speak even less than I could when
he first went to the US. He told me a story similar to mine. He studied
twice as hard as everybody around him, and used every chance he could
get to practice his English, but after a many months, he was not
improving. He finally gave up the idea that he would get fluent just by
using English with the people around him. His idea was to do something simple. And this is the thing that
changed everything for me. He said he woke up every morning, and the
first thing he did was to get a cassette player, and a tape with English
on it, and repeat for 30 minutes everyday. It didn't really matter what
it was, he said, just that he repeated it over and over until he was
extremely comfortable saying it, then he would move on to the next
He said after a month of doing this, everything had changed. Not only
was he comfortable with speaking to his professor and classmates, he
could suddenly understand what people were saying around him, even in
He continued this for a year, and his pronunciation and understanding
became native, even at 24 years old!
I tried it. And YES!!! Finally! This was the way I became fluent!
It sounded too easy to me, and even though I trusted my boss, I still had
some doubts. After all, how could he have such a perfect
pronunciation when he could barely speak at age 24. It seemed
impossible, especially given the bad experiences I had.
I tried it anyway. I went to a electronics store and get a small
portable cassette tape player that was easy to control. I decided that I
would repeat for 15 to 20 minutes a day before I went to bed at night. I
started with some simple Japanese language tapes. I started with the
first sentence, played it, stopped the cassette player, repeated out loud
the sentence, I rewound, listened, repeated, rewound, listened
repeated, etc. I did this sometime doing the same sentence for 10
minutes or more before moving to the next sentence.
Everything started to change for me in only a week. Everything
started to click. All of those Japanese vocabulary words I had memorize
suddenly because usable. They truly became my words, not some abstract
information I had memorized from a book or a classroom lecture. All of those years of
memorizing Japanese vocabulary finally paid off. I hate to sound like I
am exaggerating, but it was like a miracle. In 3 months I was fluent, I was
making friends, and I was no longer they guy at the office everybody
would have to feel uncomfortable talking too. I was becoming part of
the team at work. And yes, my cassette player reverse button was worn
My Japanese improved so rapidly, they gave me a job in sales - TO JAPANESE
I continued for about 6 months, and my Japanese improved to the
extent my company moved me to a purely domestic department to join the
sales team. I was an American, working at a major Japanese company and
they were going to put me at a sales job that had nothing to do with my
English, or me being an American. It was purely domestic sales! To me,
this was proof that I had reached my dream, my goal of absolute comfort
and fluency in Japanese.
|Look at the
younger me! I made it on the cover of a Japanese language magazine!
Once I became fluent in Japanese, everything
changed. All of my dreams started coming true. This is a picture
of me on the cover of a magazine called The Nihongo Journal after
living in Japan almost two years. Image that? A kid that couldn't
even pass a high school Spanish class on the cover of a magazine for
language learners? 17 years later it still seems unbelievable!
I owe this all to a simple learning method that enabled me to relax
and communicate my feelings in Japanese without any stress. It
took time and effort, but it was worth it. Later in my business
career, I even made it on the front page of the Nikkei Shimbun and
had and article written about me in Nikkei Sangyo and Venture
Now I share this success story and my simple repeat method with
everybody who will listen. I was hopeless at one point, but if I can
succeed, you can too!
When I meet new Japanese friends, or go to parties, everybody is
interested in why I can speak Japanese. They usually assume it is
because I have a Japanese wife (which I met after I became fluent). I
tell them the story I just told you. I encourage them to practice by
repeating, and if they would like to speak English
fluently, they can. It is totally possible. All they have to do is do
repeating a little bit everyday. I tell them exactly how I did it, how I
chose tapes or recorded material from the radio to repeat, how often I would repeat each sentence, etc. I
tell them they do not have to spend money, they can achieve their goals
for free. I have never met anybody that was not intrigued by how simple
my method was. I have not met anybody that wasn't eager to try it after
talking to me, but when I ask them later if they had tried it, I usually
get some excuse. It is amazing to me that while everybody is so willing
to invest lots of time and money into English, but they have failed so
many times that they doubt that anything as simple and cheap as this
repeating method will actually work. People have become so used to
failure that they believe that you have to spend a lot of money to
I will make you 4 promises if you use my method (even if you do not
become a NativeCoach member):
If you take the same advice I took when I was struggling, you too can
become comfortable and fluent in English. I promise this:
1. You will become fluent. You will lose that hesitation before you
speak. You will lose that anxiety you have before you say something in
English. You will stop thinking about speaking English and just start
2. Within a month, you will start to feel comfortable speaking
English (as incredible as this sounds, it is true, it happened to me in
about 3 weeks. It was like magic)
3. You will open an latent connection between speaking and all of
those vocabulary words you have memorized, but not used, until now. Your
mind will start to become rewired and make a connection to vocabulary that you
memorized before, but is lying dormant in your memory. You can leverage
all of those years of work by using the NativeCoach method.
4. You have a deepened understanding of spoken English. If you think you understand the English you are hearing around you
or on TV, to a good extent, after you do repeating for a few days, you
will realize that you do not understand nearly as much as you think you
do. This may sound like a negative, but it isn't. For me, I thought I
understood a lot, but once I really understood what was really being said, I
realized I had been sadly mistaken. Repeating will allow you to
understand the English you are hearing to a degree equal to native
5. This method is simple.
Anybody can do it. The first few days might be awkward, but you will
soon get into a rhythm and actually enjoy your fluency building
I strongly encourage you to try NativeCoach. With the help of others, I
have worked hard to make it the best system possible. In fact, I guarantee
you will improve your English, so there is absolutely no risk when you start our
