Storylingo is the coaching program Paul uses to help learners connect with audiences in English. It is ideal for those who need to master job interviews and presentations. It is divided into 3 phases.
It all starts with two simple questions. Who's your audience? and What's your message? Paul will ask you to define your Key Communication Goals, or #KeyCommns as they are called in this program.
Each #KeyCommn represents a specific area of English communication you need to master. Think of them as Mini-Fluency goals. They can be things like:
Each one of your #KeyComms becomes a single immersive language unit. During this unit, Paul will coach you on becoming familiar with the #EnglishInContext. This refers to the frequently-used language, structures and speaking patterns of that particular topic. In order to identify those elements, it is necessary to see how other English speakers talk about your topic in the same context. —and taking from that things that will help you deliver your message in the easiest way possible.
Mastering your #KeyComm means having a clear idea of what you want to talk about.
In this next phase, you learn how to sound like you're speaking instead of writing. This may sound obvious, but the problem most English learners have is that they learned English as a writing language, not as a conversational language. However, sounding conversational is crucial because it is the style used today for most business communication.
To fill the gap, Paul will coach you on how to master #EnglishTalk —the art of English conversation. That means you will learn to deliver your message, but speaking naturally instead sounding like a Wikipedia page. The idea is to sound like a TED Talk speaker, who is cool and professional with the topic, yet involved in an engaging conversation with the audience.
In #EnglishTalk, Paul will teach you to distinguish between message language and support language. You will also learn to incorporate solid listening skills and to grasp the essence of body language.
The ultimate goal of this phase is to be able to deliver the key ideas of your #KeyComm in the most natural way possible for your audience.
When you get to this stage, you have
You are ready to learn to deliver your message in the most effective format of all times —storytelling. This is the critical skill that changes your game and gives you the ability to deliver engaging business communication.
