books help you achieve a high degree of fluency through
self-study. Yes, by teaching yourself.
are the first dedicated fluency-building books in the world.
And these were the first books in the world that were based
on a great truth: If youre a person who writes reasonable
English or good English, but cannot speak it quite fluently,
conventional English-teaching methods cannot make you speak
it truly fluently but self-study can. While more and
more conventional teacher-directed learning would only make
you go on being an unsure and hesitant speaker, self-directed
self-study is capable of transforming you into a supremely
those who can write reasonable English or good English can
be divided into two groups: First, those whose learning of
English and fluency development happened side by side from
the very first day they started learning English. (This is
how true learning of a language has to happen. This is how
native speakers of all languages learn their language). Second,
those whose learning of English happened first, and fluency-development
efforts happened separately, much later. (This is how non-native
speakers of English learn their language through conventional
far as the first group of people are concerned, most of them
must be reasonably fluent now, and many of them, remarkably
fluent. Prof. Nairs self-study books can help them improve
their fluency-level especially, those who are only
reasonably fluent. As far as the second group of people are
concerned, Prof. Nairs self-study books can help them
to begin being truly fluent and to go on to become supremely
Development Course: A self-directed self-study course
You can use Prof. Nairs self-study books as a course
of self-study in fluency building and teach yourself the strategies
of achieving a high degree of fluency in English. Yes, a self-study
course a course in which you study at home, and not
in class, and in which you study by yourself, without depending
on a teacher. These
books have been specially written for home study. Their contents
are self-explanatory clear and easy to understand,
without needing any extra instruction or explanation.
know, the fluency skill is a unique skill. The only
one of its kind. You cant learn it in the same way as
you learn computer skills or mathematics or swimming. No,
you cant. The fluency skill needs a different approach.
It can only be mastered directly. Yes. Through self-effort.
Without a teacher coming between you and the learning process.
Only then will the fluency skill become your skill.This
is exactly what happens when you use Prof. Nairs fluency-building
books as a course of self-study. In all senses. When youre
doing that, 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. Its this self-learning
effort that is going to transform you.
wholly unique self-training system
The self-study that Prof. Nairs 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.) And this unique form of self-study happens
at two levels: The outer and the inner.
First, theres the self-directed learning of the fluency
techniques from Prof. Nairs self-study books. Then,
theres 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.
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 youve learnt
from Prof. Nairs books: (i) You keep doing a self-monitoring
of how you process the language in your mind. At the same
time as youre 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. Nairs
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.
Nairs 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 youre 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
time-honoured system and spectacularly successful
As THE HINDU has said, "He (Prof. Nair) had been
researching since 1971, and the results of the study led him
to new discoveries". And
based on his discoveries, Prof. Nair designed this fluency-building
system by 1974. From 1974 to 1982, The English Fluency Institute
(our name till 1982) made use of this fluency-building system
in seminars and workshops. Since 1982, we have been offering
this fluency-building system to advanced and post-advanced
learners throughout the world through Prof. Nairs
Fluent-English self-study books. Since then, this fluency-building
system has had steady acceptance among educated people throughout
since then, this has been the worlds most popular and
most sought-after fluency-building tool. THE HINDU has described the universal acceptance of this unique system
of fluency building as "Fluentzys phenomenal success".
