We begin to explore its powerful reality during communication.

What is it exactly? 

How can we use it constantly in our first language, but we don't use it at all in our second language?

In this video we will prepare for our worst horror: when we can't find our words during a conversation.

You will become comfortable with this reality of any conversation, but especially during communication in a second language.

You will begin to feel at home, even when words don't come.

When words don't come.

What to do, when your words don't come

We all dream of thinking in our second language.

We all dream of quickly changing the language of our mind, according to the language of our current conversation.

It's possible!

Learn this very simple game, and you will begin to know how.

Simply through simple self-awareness we can see exactly the mixture of languages in our mind.

You will be on the path to language freedom and choice in your own mind!

Of course this will make you much more efficient and effective in your communication in your second language.

The TISL Game - quickly know the language in your mind!

In this video we understand the good and the bad from our time in school.

You learnt enough English, to take this course.

You know a lot of words in English.

You can understand these videos in English.

You can easily speak your first language, but sometimes it's not easy in your second language

Sometimes you find speaking under pressure difficult.

Sometimes you don't hear words directly, but translate them into your first language.

Fortunately it's not our fault! Happily we can blame this on the school learning process.

Take back your Power, which school took away

Before looking at the answers, list on a piece of paper everything good and bad in school language-learning.

1 question

In this video etc. we find out the importance of taking control during a conversation.

We understand that the less competent person (the non-native speaker) must take control in a conversation, and not the native speaker.

This is exactly the opposite to our experience in school, where the teacher was always in control.

This video shows us how to use questions and many other techniques; yes we take back the necessary control into our own hands!

Decide to take control. Then you will have enough words and grammar.

The first seconds in first contact are the most powerful moments in anyone's life!

This is true not only for job interviews, but for meeting the love of your life.

Learn in this video, how to get ready for these very special moments.

Suddenly new surprising opportunities will open up for you!

In this video find out how, to learn new words in a different way than in school.

In fact go back to your amazing superpower from early childhood.

Learn to fall in love with new words, just like a small baby loves their mother!

You can learn new words through practising emotional connection.

Try it yourself! 

Fall in love with new words!

Communication in a second language can be better in many ways than in your first language! But most people think differently. Why?

Sure we can meet new people in a second language, but we still think that our mother tongue is best for communication. In this video we question these ideas. We start to see that the required conscious communication in a second language can teach us new things about ourselves.

This video will help us, to change our attitude towards second-language communication.

Communication in a second language can be better!

List as many ways as possible, why second-language communication can be better than in our first language.

    In this video we understand the effect of our wrong ideas on our communication.

    Wrong ideas limit us and stop us from living up to our potential. 

    In this video we start to see these limiting beliefs, and we learn freedom from these ideas. Immediately our communication can improve.

Catch wrong ideas before they catch you

In this video we explore the powerful advantages and benefits from real listening.

We start to examine our habits in listening.

We see how real listening helps us, but also helps the other person in big ways.

The power of real listening

In this video we again go deeper into the problems with school education.

Of course school is not completely bad, but we have learnt many wrong things about second-language communication.

You will see through these wrong ideas from school.

You will be much more free, to use your own Communication Superpower much more. You will become more effective in your second-language communication.

The big problem with school

The Program has a system

In this video we see even more clearly how much we can already do in English. We learn more about loving our English (or any other second language) right now.

We understand even more, how our words and grammar can already be enough.........................but only if we accept our current competence in communication in English.

You have enough - Part 2

In this video we learn about the two focuses for our attention: one is outside with our speaking partner, and one is inside ourselves.

On the outside we learn to become even more concentrated on the voice of the other person in a conversation and on their face.

And inside ourselves we learn to understand ourselves better. In other words, self-awareness:

  • Are we thinking in our first language or in our second language?

    Or is there a mixture of languages in our mind?

    What exactly is that mixture?

  • What is the best mind for second-language communication?

    Should it be extremely concentrated?

    Or perhaps also with relaxation and openness?

We learn through our own conscious trial and error, how to communicate at our best.

Conscious Attention℠

In this video we look more closely at the importance of our attention. 

We understand more deeply, how the right attention to the right things brings much better results in communication.

You will understand the nature of good attention, and you will understand how to optimise (make it the best and most appropriate possible) your attention.

With this information you will see quick increases in your effectiveness in communication in your second language.

Where is your attention during a conversation?

In this video we understand the difference between meaning and sound.

We learn, that most of the time we only listen for meaning.

But now we can learn, to tune into the exact sound of another person's words.

We learn:

  • how to get a second chance in our own mind, to hear a person's words.
  • how to repeat the sound of another's words exactly, just like a little baby does.

Quickly we become much better in our communication.

Practice the power of Naked Listening℠

    In this video we learn about the one most important very simple yes-no question in any conversation: "Do I understand enough right now?"

    We learn to feel this question in a very conscious way.

    We learn to accept communication, even when we can't translate it into our first language.

    We learn to react fast, when we don't understand enough.

    Immediately we become better communicators.

Do I understand enough?

In this video we become comfortable not knowing.

We find out, that we can only learn if we accept not knowing.

We understand that not-knowing is a part of all communication.

In this way we remain connected at home and in control at all times during any conversation in a second language. 

Thus we find ourselves communicating better.

"I don't know" and it's okay

In this video you will be guided through your experience of your own body. In other words, you will be asked to feel different parts of your body.

In school the focus in second-language learning is mostly about words and grammar. But of course we can never communicate in any language without our bodies. 

By waking up to our feelings in our own body:

  • we get much more information about a conversation. 
  • we stay connected with ourselves and with our speaking partner.
  • we feel much more at home and in control during a conversation.
  • we communicate, and learn to communicate, much better.
Communication Trust-Power℠ meditation

In this video we understand concentration in a different way.

We understand concentration and attention during a conversation, even if we understand nothing. 

In any conversation this can happen, and of course it happens in a second-language conversation. 

No problem!

We find out how to be at home and in control, even if we understand nothing!

With this new understanding we start feeling like communication champions!

Are you in or are you out?

How often do we feel 'I don't understand'?

Do we always tell the other person?

In this video find the solutions to this very common problem.

Get ready before the next time, when you don't understand.

Then you will know what to say, and how to say it.

Then your holes in your understanding will be much fewer.

Then you will understand more.

Then you will have more fun in communication in your second language.

How to say "I don't understand"

In this video we tune in to the micro-seconds before a conversation with words begins.

We find out the power of these special moments.

We learn to be ready and open for the next first contact with a new person.

We will be ready for our next job interview, sales meeting, or suprise phonecall with a stranger.

Your colleagues will be impressed!

The seconds before contact

In this video we find out about one important difference between learners in a second language. We find out, that all the wonderful introverted people of the world need a different attitudej and practice, when speaking in a second language. We find out why this different practice is so important.

Extroverted listeners will understand other introverted people better. So they will become better listeners and questioners.

Introverted listeners will know much more clearly the essential importance of control in a second-language conversation. They will become better communicators.

Introversion and extroversion

In this video we find out, that all of us totally LOVE grammar!

It's true!

We will know how to understand information about grammar much better.

We will be able to use our grammar knowledge much better during our next conversation.

Just keep watching........

We all actually love grammar

In this video we bring together our new understanding of Communication Trust-Power℠ with our understanding of questions in a second language. 

We know the different forms of questions in English (or our other second language), but often we still don't ask questions.

In this video you will become ready for your next conversation!

You are becoming a master communicator again!

Asking questions

In this video we become clear about our motivation from moment to moment.

We start to see the effect of our level of interest on our ability to communicate.

We learn to ask the question, "Do I want this communication right now?"

We learn to ask why.

We learn to leave conversations faster, and also be more present in our conversations.

This is the path to master communication.

Do I want this communication right now?

Fear is real!

We can't ignore fear, but we can feel differently about it.

In this video we learn another way, to manage the fear present sometimes during a conversation.

You will feel better prepared for the next conversation in your second language.

Feel the fear, and do it anyway!

In this video we go into more detail about the importance of Naked Listening℠

This video will help you to become a better listener.

Naked Listening℠

In this video we understand, how helping others with their communication also helps us.

We understand our own learning process within a bigger global context.

This opens up our interest and motivation, and is also fun!

Help yourself through Global Communication

In this video you will understand what Globish (simple English) is, and how it can help your next conversation.

You will understand the potential in using Globish and Communication Trust-Power℠ together.

You will feel at home, connected, in control and more effective in any conversation.

ESL Language Teacher and Communication Coach/Consultant

I have taught English to over 2000 non-native speakers of English at 5 universities, many companies and also individually and online. From complete beginners to highly professional people in preparation for talks at large conferences.

My over 2000 learners have come from all background and professions from 15 countries on 2 continents. I have also lived my professional career on four continents over the last 30 years. In addition I bring my 30 years experience (over 25,000 hours) of daily experience with very simple non-religious meditation.

Over the last fifteen years I became unhappy with the standard teaching in schools. 

Learners want to communicate! They want to enjoy contact with people from other countries! But nearly always learners could not speak and enjoy their second language for years after beginning in the language. In my universities I was forced to use books and focus on grammar. I asked myself: did babies learn this way with such amazing success?

I started teaching differently, and the results in the learners were amazing.

I threw away the books and concentrated on simple human contact. We had fun! We talked about anything which was interesting for the learner. But we always talked with 100% concentration and focus.  As a group we noticed WHAT we talk about, but also HOW we talked about it. We learned attention to our own mind during communication.

Out of this professional experience I learned just three important principles for learning any language. These are: your own inborn Communication Trust-Power℠ (I call this our one human superpower), Conscious Attention℠, and Naked Listening℠. I found out how to know the language/s of learners inside their mind via my TISL Game℠.

I made a guarantee to get any learner (intermediate/5 years of English or better) to feel at home and connected in English as their second language. In just twelve hours this is possible and hundreds of learners have gone through the BE-in-English℠ online Program. No one has asked for their money back! <smile>
