Introduction


"Use it or lose it" is a good reason to practice a language. Unless you practice English (or any new language) often, there is a very good chance that you will forget it.


I try to practice the Chinese I learned, to stay 'connected' to that language.


In this article, I want to explain why getting my Newsletter is a great way to stay 'connected' to English.


If you often speak, write, and think in your native language, you are not getting enough English in your life.


As I said, "use it or lose it".



Here are the reasons for subscribing to my Monthly Newsletter.


I have divided them into my reasons and your reasons.


Here are my reasons.

My reasons to subscribe to my Free Newsletter

1 Keep in touch with each other

The main reason I want you to subscribe to my Newsletter is to keep in touch with my subscribers.


I can pitch my range of 'simply better' Methods in the hope that one day, they will buy from me.


So, I often promote one of my Modules on a page of the Newsletter - often with a generous discount attached.

2 Useful content to prepare you for practice

A second reason for me, is to offer my knowledge for free to my growing list of 'students'.

Useful content to help you prepare for practicing with My 'simply better' Method.


Or you might like to learn my Spelling or Pronunciation methods.

I am hoping you will subscribe because you are keen to improve your English.


Unfortunately, many believe that their English will improve just by learning more English. But the real way to improve is to practice - using my 'simply better' Methods.

3 Offering 'Freebies' to Subscribers - as Incentives to Buy

Speaking of 'freebies', I run a very occasional competition.


They are open to subscribers only, so the odds of winning are high - where the prize is one of my Modules.


The last competition to win required hardly any skill at all.


All people had to do was to observe and count, and then email me the answer.

4 Subscriber Discounts

Only Newsletter Subscribers get the PromoCode for a 20% Discount to use at any time.


So, these are my reasons for sending out my Newsletter.


Let's turn now to other reasons for why you should sign up to receive my Newsletter.

The benefits for you

Reading comprehension practice

The main reason is that it gives you valuable English reading comprehension practice.


A second reason is that it will increase your vocabulary.


It's not important to know the meaning of every word in the Newsletter.


But it does give you the opportunity to get the meaning from the context (the words around the unknown word).


Or to look the word up in a dictionary.


And write it down -in a dedicated notebook - if you think it's a useful word to know and use.


I offer a range of topics as well as set pieces that use the same, or similar, words every single month.


It's a way to gain knowledge as well as become familiar with the language.

Regular features

I have many regular features sprinkled through the newsletter.


These include:

My News

While I get to write a monthly diary for myself, I hope my readers will enjoy aspects of my 'oh so exciting' life.

Mini English Lessons

Every month, I write about an aspect of English that I hope will be useful. These Mini Lessons are never posted on Facebook. So only subscribers get this benefit.


I compile these Lessons into PDFs and offer them to subscribers for free.

It's a way for subscribers to 'catch up' on earlier (missed) Newsletters.


Currently, there are 4 Volumes of Mini-Lessons.


New subscribers also get My 'simply better' Basic English Lessons.


There are (currently) 3 Volumes.


I plan to collect and make available more Volumes of Lessons.


Remember, only subscribers get these for free.


See the link below to subscribe.

Cartoon of the Month

This is one of my favourite items. I select a cartoon that features some aspect of English:


  • punctuation

  • idioms,

  • grammar, etc.


While at the same time making a serious point, they are often quite funny.

Quotations

A quotation appears every month.

Quotations are good to use in your writing and speaking.


I used one in my introduction. They provide valuable colour and relevancy to written and spoken pieces.

Picture of the Month

I post these to inspire subscribers to practice their written English.

Writing a description of the scene or telling a story practices creative writing.

Weird Word of the Month

Every month, I explain words that 'look' strange.

They are strange because some are usually out-dated and rarely used. But they are interesting to know about.

Inspiration/Motivation - Confidence Builder

Everybody needs a little inspiration and/or motivation in their lives. and so I post appropriate images combined with text to inspire and motivate my readers.


I, too, often get the same benefits from such wise words and wonderful images.

Special Feature

The final section is a part of the newsletter that gives me free reign to post a variety of items. They can be quite diverse.


  • pictures that inspire creative writing

  • poetry


Poems offer a different way of comprehending (and even enjoying) English expression.

Limericks, haiku, blank, and open verse appear often in this section.


Or a word puzzle to test readers' skill with English.


Many Reasons to Subscribe


So, there you have it: many reasons for you to sign up to get my Newsletter.

But, there are even more.


I've left to last a couple of extra reasons for getting my Newsletter.

My 'simply better' Rewards Points

The first reason is the chance to accumulate my 'simply better' Rewards Points.

Subscribers earn them by responding in several ways.


Examples of responses to gain Rewards Points

To earn 10 Points


  • Emailing me to thank me for the latest issue or to ask a question

  • Leaving a comment on my blog articles

  • Answering a Quick Quiz on my Facebook page

  • Challenging a point in My Bite-sized Lessons on FB or in the Newsletter

  • Sharing a social media post with friends


To earn 500 Points


Inviting a friend to subscribe to the Newsletter earns 500 points


I keep a good record of subscribers' Rewards Points.


I alert them when their points have reached significant milestones.


250 points for 25% Discount.

500 points for 50% Discount to use at any time of the year; especially when I am not running discounts.


Unfortunately, I am limited to providing discounts only as rewards.


There is the opportunity to earn discounts for 1000 Points for example.


At sign-up all subscribers receive 100 points.


Points are not transferable to anyone else, nor are they redeemable for cash.
