You’re welcome. We love getting emails from excited members! We’re sorry that we cannot reply to every email, but we do appreciate your kind words and thanks!
You can send money with PayPal without a credit card. Choose a bank transfer instead.
No. We do not accept money orders or Western Union because they are not secure.
NO. You are charged only one time. There are NO monthly fees. You pay only once.
You will immediately receive an email with a link to the download page. Click the link, then click on the titles of the lesson sets to download them. Lesson sets download automatically after you click the title. If your computer asks, choose WinZip to download the files (most computers will do this automatically).
There are over 60 lessons (20 lesson sets, each with 3 or more lessons per set).
No. You can listen to the lessons on your computer. However, an MP3 player (iPod) will allow you to listen to the lessons anywhere and anytime– just load the lessons onto your MP3 player and learn English on the bus, while walking, during lunch, etc.
The lessons are all .zip files. Zip files download faster. “Unzipping” software comes with Windows and Mac computers. If you do need unzipping software for some reason, you can get it for free at:
http://www.winzip.com/downwz.htm or http://www.winzip.com/trialpay.htm
Use WinZip to download the files (see above question). After that, use your media player (such as iTunes or Windows Media Player) for the audio lessons, and use Adobe Acrobat Reader for the text files. These programs come with most computers.
You can listen to the lessons in any order. However, We recommend starting with the “1.” lessons because they are shorter, simpler, and easier. Then move to the “2.” level lessons. Do only one lesson set per week, listening to each lesson in the set everyday.
Listen to one lesson set everyday each week. Each lesson set has 2-4 lessons in it. Repeat each lesson in the set everyday for at least one week. If the lesson set still seems difficult, listen to these lessons every day for another week.
If the lessons seem easy, still listen to them everyday for at least one week. Deep learning is a very important part of the Flow English method. Over-learn every lesson.
Start with the level 1. lessons and focus on the Mini-Story lessons. It’s OK if you don’t understand every word. Just relax and listen to the same lesson everyday for a week. The Mini-Story lessons are the most important, so focus on them first if you are having trouble. Most of all, be patient. It takes time, but after 6 months you will improve a lot!
Flow English is a deep learning system. We teach automatic, instant English speaking. You may “know” the vocabulary, for example, but you need to understand it instantly, and use it automatically– without thinking, without pausing.
If a lesson seems easy, do not skip it. Listen to it everyday, for a full week. You can focus on pronunciation if the vocabulary seems easy. Listen carefully to our pronunciation. Pause after every sentence and copy our pronunciation.
Copy our emotion. Focus on intonation. Imagine you are an actor– try to sound exactly like us.
Check your “bulk mail” folder or your “spam” folder. Your email company probably sent the email there by mistake.
You can hear my general style by listening to my podcast at: http://www.FlowEnglish.libsyn.com
However, these are not lessons, but they will give you an idea about my personality and style.
No. We cannot offer the lessons for free, but we do guarantee your success if you use them every day for 6 months.
Yes. The email course teaches you our English study method. The lessons teach you English vocabulary, speaking, listening, and grammar.
The best way to improve reading and writing is to read easy novels… and read them everyday. How easy? Well, you should not need a dictionary to understand it and you should be able to read quickly. On most pages, you should understand 98% of the words.
You can start with kids novels– books for children ages 7-12. Then find adolescent novels (for ages 13-15). After you read a lot of those, read novels for teenagers (16-18 years old)… and finally, novels for adults. What kind of novels? Anything you like. Mystery, romance, adventure, etc…. Read things you like. Read easy novels. Read a lot and read everyday. Don’t use a dictionary– read quickly and enjoy your reading. This is the best way to improve both reading and writing.
Check your “bulk” or “spam” mail folder. Emails are sometimes put there by your email company by mistake. If the emails are not there, you may need to sign up again for the free email course.
