Okay. Body parts. My voice is crazy. Organs. Less understood and fairly complex ones. I told you I’d tell you. So, welcome back everyone. Future physicians, nurses, and English speakers. If you are savvy enough to take on this mission. Today is a medical menu, consisting of less understood and fairly complex organs. Since these organs have complicated functions, I’m going to just tell you the easiest way how to explain them. Okay, first organ is the liver. The liver converts toxic things into less harmful forms. Alright, sentence could be, “the liver can regenerate itself”. That’s something popular that we know. Next is, diaphragm. So, diaphragm is a muscle organ, kind of… That separates the chest from the stomach area. “So, skilled singers are able to control their diaphragm.” Or, “skilled singers have great control of their diaphragm.” Spleen. Don’t know where that is. But the spleen produces and destroys cells. “The boxer got a ruptured spleen from the fight.” Next is, pancreas. pancreas releases insulin.  “The pancreas has an irregular shape.” Next is, gallbladder. Gallbladder is a pear shaped sack that releases bile. “Normal people don’t know what the gallbladder does.” That’s a good sentence for you. I’m sorry, we’re never going to talk about that organ or those organs again. And we’re finished, with the basic explanations so you have finished. Dr. Chris has now, left the building.

Do small organs matter?

The key to your English success.

I remember being once told by someone that you could live without your pancreas, gal bladder, and some other less known organs of the body.

Human anatomy was only vaguely explained in grade school to me, so please forgive me if I sound like a moron.

And up until a few years ago I believed that organ insignificance until one of my Doctor friends explained to me how important the pancreas was.

If I’m not mistaken, it releases insulin to regulate sugar you take in.

So you don’t go into a coma or die.

Pretty important I would say.

But how many people could tell you that as quickly as the functions of the heart or lungs?

Now those are the most vital organs, because if they are even slightly dysfunctional you can die really quick.

Whereas a dysfunctional pancreas won’t cause immediate death in all circumstances, but instead cause serious health problems.

Where am I going with this conversation? How is this related to English in anyway?

You just wait my friend, these are the keys to your English fluency. 

I am confident if you understand the message I’m giving….

Then all other English tips, strategies and hacks will just become interesting reading material.

For a moment will you imagine your English activities a sort body?

This metaphors shouldn’t be taken too literal. Instead focus on importance.

If your English activities were a body maybe the:

  • Brain = all language actions
  • Heart= speaking
  • Lungs = listening
  • Stomach = reading
  • Intestines =  writing
  • Liver = finding best material
  • Kidney = vocabulary

Pretty much we all understand that without these organs/actions our English skills we will be severely handicapped and need assistance.

This goes without saying. So there is no need to beat a dead horse.

But have you addressed the less known organs?

Just the same way you overlook them in the actual human body. You may be overlooking these activities in your English body also. 

Golden point: 

I believe it may be possible to greatly enhance the functions of your foundational skills/organs for your entire life.

Here it is:

Going back to the pancreas, somehow if healthy, it most likely supports the function of the kidneys and liver.

Pancreas helps blood sugar. Kidneys help release water.

Pancreas

I imagine pancreas could equal: 

Making TRUE friends that speak the language and continually developing the relationship. 

Why? 

You don’t need it for your English to survive, but many Europeans speak multiple languages and have friends from all over Europe. The true development of friendship is a subconscious motivator.

In addition this activity is a proven way to enhance all the other parts of your English.

With a true friend you’ll: 

Have real reasons to read English, Write English, Listen, and speak even better.

In Japan however, this activity is seen as optional, and in some ways quite risky.

But I think it’s worth it to take a chance. Especially in Japan, where the majority of foreigners who spend a lot of time in Japan have a genuine interest in this country.

Spleen

This organ filters bad substances from the blood.

This activity could be joining groups and clubs and associating with English speakers that share your lifestyle. You filter out the more unpredictable foreigners, and share common ground and can be comfortable when growing your English. Making acquaintances in your setting of interest.

You don’t only find foreigners at a nightclub or bar.  They can also be found doing activities you enjoy. This will support liver function we mentioned in the beginning, which will filter and provide the English that most interest you. 

Engaging in these less popular approaches are your keys to supercharging your English if you are serious about it.

It’s proven if you look at Europe or anyone else that has wholeheartedly engaged in actions like these activities.

However, these activities have not be categorized as vital activities like vocab study, listening practice, writing, or reading.

But thy should. 

Your English may be alive. But is it fully healthy? 

You probably need to address these less discussed topics, instead of trying to find the latest speed technique. Which comes and goes.

Although we frequently recommend our own products and resources, they should be seen as nutrition or supplements to your English body, not the functions themselves. 

They help improve things, but true growth is real life experience as much as possible.

I can tell you that fixing my Japanese pancreas was what enhanced my Japanese ability and then changed the direction of my life.

Maybe not, because I loved Japan from the beginning. But it gave me more confidence that I could actually be functional and comfortable in Japan.

After I graduated University, I took classes at a junior collage and a teacher (Kinjo Sensei) told me to make Japanese friends and it supercharged everything else. I had never made Japanese friends or talked with Japanese people in a group before.

That changed my life and I learned things no one could have taught me.

But I still have stomach problems because I didn’t study kanji!!

I’ll elaborate on my story and serve your some more organs to help supercharge your English before the olympics.
