Curtis: I’ve been pulled over for tailgating2 an ambulance.
Amy: Oh, my God. I didn’t think that was the story he was going to pick.
Curtis: No, this is a very, very bad thing to do. I don’t recommend you doing this.
Amy: Okay. What’s tailgating?
Curtis: Tailgating is following somebody too close. So usually you have to leave a car
length in between the car in front of you and your car. And I at that point …
Amy: Had a very, very bad habit of driving way too close.
Curtis: Right. And in between–or I was in between the emergency ambulance vehicle in
front of me and a police car behind me. But I didn’t know it was a police car because it
didn’t have the lights.
Amy: Oh, it was a ghost car3.
Curtis: It was a ghost car.
Curtis: Or an unmarked car. Yeah.
Amy: Right. An unmarked car.
Curtis: And right away, he turned on his lights that were on his dashboard and the front of
his car and his siren. And he was mad.
Amy: He was.
Curtis: But I got lucky5 on that one too. Even though he was mad, he didn’t give me a
Amy: Yeah. Sometimes they let you off. They–like they let you off the hook6 or I don’t
know. They give you, what is it? A warning?
Curtis: A warning7
Amy: Yeah, they give you a warning. Don’t do it again. Oh, yeah. It’s a written warning.
And it goes on record that you’ve been warned about this. But they don’t actually give
you a fine.
Curtis: Yeah. He kept track of it for sure.

My name is Smith and I am from Haiti. I am really happy to have signed up for Real English Conversations because it has really helped me improve my listening and speaking skills.
And thanks to the teacher, Amy Whitney, who also acts as a researcher on how to learn a foreign language more efficiently. So, thanks to her good advice and methodology about how to deeply work out my listening and how to stick with my speaking practice, even without having someone to talk to, I have been able to gradually improve my English in many ways.

Why has nobody taught you how to study a English Conversation before?
This is a learning technique that I accidentally found when I was at an intermediate level but I felt overwhelmed by the number of words, grammar, and expressions I still needed to learn.
I felt like every time I learned something new… there was more I had to learn. To make it worse, there were so many resources available online! It was hard to find a good resource that would teach me the real life language that is used every day for the INTERMEDIATE and ADVANCED level.
I am a native English speaker but I was studying Spanish on my own. For about 14 years but I was stuck at a beginner level until I started to study the right things.
Once I discovered this technique of studying real conversations, my level in the language improved from a beginner to a confident advanced speaker quickly, without as much effort. Which is why we decided to build a website based on the most effective techniques I have personally used and I know work very well.
One of the key parts to building vocabulary and improving my listening skills was having access to good audio of real conversations and accurate transcriptions. Which is why we make sure that every one of our audio lessons has either subtitled videos or includes access to English Conversations Lessons with a PDF.
I’d like to share a secret with you…
All you need right now to improve your English to the next level is a method and resource that focuses on the right English, real English. By learning and seeing the right words, right verbs and hearing interesting phrases that real people actually use, you are going to feel more confident speaking while advancing your English level quickly.
The fact is, many courses or textbooks teach you vocabulary and expressions that aren’t often used in everyday communication.
Why waste your time trying to memorize words that you are never going to use during English conversations? I mean, it’s a boring and useless technique that will not help your ability to communicate with real English in the real world.
Imagine being able to see a big improvement in your English comprehension and speaking abilities within a few weeks? We can help you to advance with your English, improve your confidence, understand more and speak easier.
The best part is you get to listen to interesting conversations that are enjoyable to listen to. Compared to studying boring scripted audio that isn’t authentic!
On this site, we focus on show students learning techniques you can use to teach yourself English without a classroom or teacher 🙂
Becoming a confident, fluent and advanced English speaker does not have to be boring or difficult. The truth is that many of the typical methods to learn English don’t help you to learn the real English that you are going to need for the real world. Such as: getting a better job or studying internationally, passing an English speaking exam or for traveling.
To get different results, you’ll need to try something different!
