Fluency only through Self-study

How a unique fluency-building system can transform you into a supremely fluent speaker of English...

Knowing English is quite different... from being able to speak it fluently. Smoothly, continuously and without hesitation.

And so, if you want to achieve a high degree of fluency in spoken English, it’s not enough that you just pick up a lot of knowledge of English. No. You'll have to master fluency techniques — the techniques that help you maintain fluency while you are speaking English.

A unique form of fluency-building system — for remarkable fluency

And here’s a set of fluency-building self-study books by none other than Prof. KevNair, one of the world's foremost authorities on English fluency studies. These fluency-building self-study books aim to help you master fluency techniques. You can easily put these books to use as a course of self-study and teach yourself the strategies of achieving and maintaining a high degree of fluency in English.

Yes, a self-study course. And an entirely non-conventional one at that. A course that helps you train yourself and achieve fluency — without getting face-to-face instruction in a classroom or even any kind of distance instruction in any form. When you use Prof. Nair's fluency-building books as a course of self-study, you are the teacher as well as the taught. In all senses. Nobody else comes between you and the learning process as a teacher. Nobody else provides you any coaching or training. You do all that yourself. And so, the learning happens directly.

And yes, this is a self-study course that's entirely non-conventional. Totally non-conventional. It's based on a revolutionary discovery. The discovery that the secret of fluency is not classroom speech practice, but mastery of fluency techniques — in real-life situations.

How total self-study helps you achieve total fluency

Why non-conventional? Because the self-study that Prof. Nair's fluency-building books want you to do is the real-time self-study. Total self-study. (And not the kind of self-study of academic or other subjects done as an alternative to classroom study.)

The self-study that Prof. Nair’s fluency-building books want you to do is the real-time self-study. Total self-study. (And not the kind of partial self-study done as an alternative to classroom study.)

This unique form of self-study happens at two levels: The outer and the inner.

The outer learning
First, there’s the self-directed learning of the fluency techniques from Prof. Nair’s self-study books.

Then, there’s the application of these techniques to real-life speech situations. Mind you, not to fictitious situations created in classrooms or by cassettes/CDs. But to real-life situations that are part of your own social & career life. Fluency-demanding real-life communicative situations: In your job. Profession. Business. Daily life.

The inner learning
This is the level at which the deeper stage of self-learning happens. The deeper stage.

Here, you keep doing 3 things — with the help of the fluency techniques you’ve learnt from Prof. Nair’s books:(i) You keep doing a self-monitoring of how you process the language in your mind. At the same time as you’re engaged in the act of speaking. From moment to moment. (ii) And you keep spotting the processing difficulties. And the factors that hold you back from speaking with a ready flow. (iii) And you keep applying the flow-production and flow-maintenance strategies you learnt from Prof. Nair’s books — to remedy these situations. And to establish, re-establish and maintain a smooth flow of speech.

In this way, you are not only able to speak fluently in every speech situation you face, but also to keep mastering the fluency techniques — directly. No teacher can be a substitute for you in this process.

Remember this: Though these stages in the fluency process have been pointed out separately as things done one after the other, what happens in practice is this: In practice, these stages happen in parallel, almost simultaneously.

Prof. Nair’s self-study books make all this quite easy to carry out. By telling you how to train yourself in this two-pronged strategy: Consciously coping with fluency-blocking factors — and consciously applying fluency-promoting factors.

Each instance of success adds to your confidence and fluency. And you are able to go ahead and enjoy being fluent. Instead of being self-conscious, embarrassed and nervous. And feeling that people are looking at you and judging you.

Remember this: In those moments that you're engaged in the act of speaking, you're the only person who will be able to spot the moment-to-moment fluency-blocking difficulties that happen to come up in your mind and the only person who will be able to deal with them then and there. Prof. Nair's books tell you what kinds of difficulties these are, and what you can do on the spot to cope with them and to go on maintaining fluency.

This self-directed self-study course is the world’s first & oldest fluency development course. And Prof. Kev Nair, who visualised this unique kind of a course of self-study and authored the books on which it is based, is better known as the father of fluency development. He's the very person who discovered the fluency secret...

It may sound incredible, but if you are an advanced or post-advanced learner of English, and if you're not reasonably fluent yet, please understand that this sort of non-conventional self-study is the one and only way you will be able to achieve true fluency. The one and only way. Yes.
