  • “I’m afraid of speaking in public.”
  • “I feel insecure about speaking English because of my pronunciation.”
  • “I speak English but I get stuck when I have to do it in front of an audience.”
  • “That phrase sounded better in my head.”

Do you relate to any of those previous sentences? Those are just a few of the phrases that most people use when learning English or having to speak in public. It is normal for you to feel insecure or afraid to speak English, especially if it has to be done in front of an audience.

We normally feel this way when things are out of our control, things that generate uncertainty. However, it’s key to understand what those uncertainties are and how you can control that fear.

That is the reason why Platzi English Academy has designed the best challenge to help you overcome that fear of speaking in public or being misunderstood because of your pronunciation: public speaking and pronunciation training.

What is public speaking and pronunciation training?

The Platzi English Academy public speaking and pronunciation training will give you the tools you need and want so that the next time you speak in English, especially in front of an audience, you do it with much more confidence and security. You will see how your English and your speaking skills improve noticeably with projects, meetups and activities focused on taking your skills to the next level.

The challenge will last 16 days and it will be divided into two levels: beginners and intermediate / advanced. If you don’t know what level you are at, I invite you to take our placement test. If you are a beginner, your main focus will be on English pronunciation. You will understand how the phonemes of the language work, and why it is so difficult for us to differentiate bird, bear, beard and beer. This will also allow your listening skills to improve considerably.

If you are intermediate / advanced, your main focus will be on public speaking. We will start from scratch, you will learn to prepare memorable conferences, how to share your ideas in the best way, we will work on your confidence when speaking, and we will find your public speaking voice.

The challenge will be full of daily activities and projects that will allow you to see your evolution throughout the challenge. There will be exclusive meetups for the people who sign up, as well as mentoring for the best students. Are you ready to take your speaking skills to the next level?

Apart from overcoming your fear of speaking English, during the challenge you will get:

  • Exclusive zoom backgrounds, wallpapers and infographics with preparation tips.
  • Invites to special and exclusive meetups
  • Special mentoring for the best students
  • The opportunity to give a live presentation in front of your English teachers and the Platzi community.
  • The opportunity to record a podcast with English Academy.
  • An exclusive badge that will identify you as the winner of the challenge.

In order to win this challenge you must complete all the classes and activities in your journal.

What do I need to be part of the challenge and how can I join?

To participate you need an active subscription: Expert, Expert + or English Academy. You must sign up using this form before September 14th. Also, you will need to study for about an hour a day to see effective results. The challenge will start on September 20th, 2021.

Before the challenge begins, we will send you a welcome kit, which includes your personal journal, classes and daily activities to do, as well as the tools and information you will need to make this training a success. I would also suggest joining our study groups at Platzi.

So, are you ready?!

  • Seguramente un buen nivel de Inglés, en cuanto a la lectura (Reading). Debemos tener en cuenta nuestro nivel en las demas competencias: listening 🎧, speaking 🗣️, writing ✍️.

¡Buen nivel en Reading! Pero faltan otros 3 aspectos, por ejemplo, a mi se me facilita muchísimo el leerlo y escucharlo, el escribirlo me defiendo, pero me falta… Pero el que si me mata y me trabo demasiado, es hablándolo. 😅

Pero si le entendiste 100% a este blog, significa que vas por muy buen camino.
