Question 2: What is the difference between Korean and English Sounds?
Answer 2: TV and radio personalities speak more clearly in their native language. Simply, listen to these native news anchors and compare their sounds with Korean news anchors; you will immediately notice that they sound different because they are using different breathing techniques. If you imitate native speakers, you will still continue to have an accent because you are attempting to speak English using Korean sounds. This accent will make it hard for native speakers to understand you. Many people believe that they can just listen to native speakers and learn to speak English, but without learning the proper breathing technique they will always have a Korean accent.

Question 10: How does the breathing technique help with my vocabulary and grammar?
Answer 10: Once you learn the proper breathing technique required by English, you will have an advantage when reading vocabulary compared to others who didn’t learn the breathing technique. Think back to when you had to drill hundreds of vocabulary and grammar rules into your head; most likely it was tedious and boring. This was inevitable because your brain did not recognize the foreign sounds; everything about the language had to be translated. Now, compare that to how you learned vocabulary in your own native language; your understanding would have come naturally. Because English is a phonetic language, once you know how to pronounce the sounds of the language correctly it will be easier for you to recognize, sound out , spell, and use correct grammar. The result will be that reading, writing, speaking, and thinking in English will come more easily. A bidirectional relationship will develop where all of these skills will build together and strengthen each other making the process more natural as you become as fluent in English vocabulary and grammar as a native speaker!
Question 11: Can JackSpeaking® Program™ help me on my English tests?
Answer 11: Yes, most definitely. JackSpeaking® Program™ provides various techniques that are specifically designed to improve your English in numerous aspects. One of the aspects includes ‘thinking in English,’ this key factor is absolutely necessary before you can successfully master the language. For instance, if you were taking a test in your native language; you would read the context straight through and go on to solve the problem. Taking an English test will become the same and this will give you a great advantage because you won’t have that extra step in your head of having to reconstruct the language by memorization.
Question 12: Do adults have a tougher time learning English than children?
Answer 12: No. One of the reasons why adults seem to have tougher time learning English is because their native language sound production has become a habit used all of their lives. Different sound production for another language is necessary and it is something they must develop in the same way they learned the sound production of their native language. JackSpeaking® Program™ is designed so that an adult learning English will take the same steps as a English native baby.
