Learn English with Arnold Schwarzenegger

AJ Hoge: Hi, I’m AJ Hoge, the author of “Effortless English: Learn To Speak Like A Native.”

Welcome to today’s Effortless English show. On the show today, learning English with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Can you learn English from Arnold Schwarzenegger? You’ll find out soon. Also on this show, an Effortless English micro-lesson, an Effortless English micro-lesson. I’ll be doing a lesson about Napoleon Hill, the famous writer Napoleon Hill. He wrote about how to get rich, “Think And Grow Rich,” is his famous book. Also on the show today, I will be answering Twitter questions. Go to for a free text transcript of this show. Go to the blog at

Let’s do our micro-lesson first. This is one of my old VIP lessons. The name of the lesson is Napoleon Hill, Napoleon Hill. I’ll play a short part from the commentary lesson, the Napoleon Hill VIP, part of my VIP program. Napoleon Hill was a writer and he wrote the famous book, “Think And Grow Rich.” Let’s listen to a little bit of that lesson and then I’ll come, I’ll teach you some new vocabulary from the lesson. We can talk a little bit about the topic of thinking and growing rich.

Recording: That’s important. Let me read a couple quotes from Napoleon Hill’s book and then we’ll come back to the commentary. Quote number one, “When a group of individual brains are coordinated and function in harmony, the increased energy created through that alliance becomes available to every individual brain in the group.”

AJ Hoge: Okay, let’s go back, I want to teach you the vocabulary from that because there are actually some good words in there. It’s a quote from the Napoleon Hill book.

Going back to my VIP lesson here I’m going to play and pause, play and pause.

When I pause I’ll explain the vocabulary. Back it up a little more, sorry. Okay.

Recording: Shared purpose and goal.

AJ Hoge: Here we go.

Recording: That’s important. Let me read a couple quotes from Napoleon Hill’s book and then we’ll come back to the commentary. Quote number one, “When a group of individual brains.”

AJ Hoge: “When a group of individual brains.” It means individual thinkers, people.

Recording: “Are coordinated and function in harmony.”

AJ Hoge: “Are coordinated and function in harmony.” Coordinated means organized together, acting together. “Function in harmony,” has the same idea. Function means do or act, and, “In harmony,” means helping each other. It means together and helping each other, not acting against each other. If you are in harmony it means you’re getting along with each other, you like each other, you’re helping each other. He’s saying, when a group of individuals, individual people, individual thinkers, act together helping each other …

Recording: “The increased energy created through that alliance.”

AJ Hoge: “The increased energy created through that alliance.” He’s saying, people who act together helping each other, when they do that there’s increased, more, energy. More energy because of that alliance. An alliance is like a friendship, it’s a friendship. We use alliance to mean people who agree to work together, kind of like friends but it’s more formal. Countries can have an alliance, right?

America, United States and Japan have an alliance. They agree to help each other. He’s saying, when people do that it can increase your energy and your success. Back to the lesson.

Recording: “Becomes available to every individual brain in the group.”

AJ Hoge: Okay, so increased energy, “becomes available to every individual brain in the group.” All right, we’ll stop there. It’s just a short little micro-lesson. The full lesson, that’s the commentary it’s 20 minutes, the full unit from my VIP course, program, is about one hour. There’s a lot of stuff in there, too much for me to teach you now.

Hopefully you learned a little vocabulary, let’s talk about the main idea. What he’s saying is, there is power in groups. There’s more power when a group of people come together to help each other, to work together, to learn from each other. He called these mastermind groups, mastermind groups. He said they were a very important technique for becoming rich.

He said, if you want to become rich, you want to make a lot of money, don’t do everything alone. It’s too difficult for one person to do everything alone and become rich. You need other people. Napoleon Hill recommended finding other people who also want to be rich. Then you have a meeting every week or every month and you share ideas and help each other. That’s called a mastermind group. I talk a lot more about it in that VIP lesson but that gives you the basic idea and hopefully some useful vocabulary too.

If you would like to get full VIP units go to my website at The VIP program is really my most advanced program.

I teach you new vocabulary every month and I also teach you ideas, methods, techniques for becoming more successful, for becoming a leader, for making money, for being stronger, more confident, for having more health. You’re getting two things from that VIP program, success topics for your whole life and of course also advanced English fluency so you speak at an advanced level, also learning very powerful ideas for your whole life. That’s my VIP program, if you want to try it for just $1 go to

All right time for listener questions. Questions, questions, questions. Okay, social media, I’m on lots of social media. I’m on Facebook, Effortless English is the name, In fact right now I am live streaming video, live video on Facebook right now. I’m also on Twitter, it’s just my name, AJHoge, A-J-H-O-G-E. YouTube, AJ Hoge, A-J-H-O-G-E. I’ll take a question or a comment. First let’s go to Twitter.

Twitter. Here’s a good question from [Roya 00:08:56]. “Dear master, what should we do about AMMP? It seems that dear Phil doesn’t check his Twitter page. Is there any other TOEFL course you recommend?” Okay, let me explain. AMMP is a course that I did with my cousin. It’s mostly my cousin’s course, his name is Phil. He’s a young guy, just 23 years old. I recommended to him, “Why don’t you do a TOEFL course to help people prepare for the TOEFL?”

I gave him ideas and helped him organize his ideas and figure out how to do the course. Then he recorded the whole course and he called it AMMP, A-M-M-P.

But unfortunately I think AMMP is dying, I’m not sure. See, he got out of college, he graduated and then he got a full time job. Now he’s working a full time job and I think the AMMP website is gone. He’s not really on Twitter anymore. I’m afraid that this AMMP TOEFL course is disappearing or dying unfortunately. To answer the question, no I don’t really have another recommended TOEFL course.

I don’t know, maybe someday I’ll make one myself. If Philippe doesn’t bring back AMMP then maybe I’ll do something to help people with academic English. I don’t really like academic English as most of you know, but I’ll think about it.

We’ll see. I hope I can encourage Phil to come back and keep going, but I don’t know. He’s young, he’s really busy. He doesn’t really have the business experience and he needs money. He’s a young guy and he’s very, very busy working. He’s got a very active social life I think, so not sure. I’ll let you know as I find out.

Drink a little water. Let’s check Facebook streaming. Okay, “I’m a teacher of English, how do I attract my students and motivate them in their study? Most of them are professionals.” That’s also a good question for any teachers out there.

How do you motivate your students? Especially professionals, especially adults, you’ve got to have energy. Adults and children have opposite problems really, usually. Children have too much energy. As anyone knows you put 10 children in a room they will start running and screaming and going crazy and yelling. Chaos, craziness.

Kids have tons of energy, so to teach children ideally you really need to have a calm style so you can keep them calm so they don’t go crazy and they will focus on learning. Now adults have the opposite problem, most adults. Most adults are tired, they’re working or they have families and children, and so they spend all day at work or with their kids. As they get older their energy drops. A lot of adults unfortunately are not very healthy and that’s another reason their energy’s low.

Adults, it’s the low energy is the problem, not high energy but low energy.

They’re kind of sleepy, bored, tired adults. When you teach adults, and this is the question from Facebook, she’s teaching adults, what to do? You’ve got to do the opposite, you’ve got to energize adults. You’ve got to wake them up and energize them, get them energized, get them excited. When I teach adults I make them stand up. For me adults means 20 or 18 and over, anyone over 18 years old is an adult.

I get them standing up. I get them to jump. I play music. I do a lot of, I call them, energy breaks. I play music in the class for just one minute and then everybody stands up and we jump and we shout and go crazy, dance around. Then I turn off the music, they sit down and I continue my lesson. When I teach the lessons I also, I use a lot of energy. I’m not just standing, teaching, teaching. No, no, I’m up there. I’m moving, I’m walking around the classroom. I’ve got a lot of energy in my voice. Sometimes I’ll be very loud and other times I’ll be quiet. I keep their interest. It’s half entertainment and half education. That’s how you keep adults focused and awake and learning as fast as possible.

Speaking of learning, let’s do another lesson. This time learn English with Arnold Schwarzenegger. Can you learn English from Arnold? Should you learn English from Arnold? I’m going to play a short part of an interview with Arnold, this is from Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon talk show. In the video Jimmy ask Arnold Schwarzenegger about his tank, he owns a tank. A tank, the military has tanks, right? They drive them, they have big guns on them. They’re really heavy and big. Arnold has a tank, he owns a tank. Let’s listen, again I’ll play this short part, then I’ll go back, I’ll repeat the vocab and then I’ll talk about Arnold’s English, because you know Arnold’s not a native speaker, he comes from Austria. His native language is German. Here we go.

Jimmy Fallon: You’re doing this for charity, you take your tank, you own a tank.

Arnold S.: Right.

Jimmy Fallon: This is a real photo, and you just drive it over things and crush things.

Arnold S.: That’s right.

Jimmy Fallon: Yeah.

Arnold S.: Why not?

Jimmy Fallon: It’s the best thing in the whole wide world.

Arnold S.: I know.

Jimmy Fallon: Why haven’t we been doing this for a long time? Then I thought, I could never get a tank. How did you get a tank?

AJ Hoge: Okay, let’s go back. I’ll help you a little bit with that part and then we’ll keep going. Okay.

Jimmy Fallon: I thought, I couldAJ

Hoge: Just going to rewind it here. Okay.

Jimmy Fallon: You take your tank, you own a tank.

AJ Hoge: “You own a tank.” Right, okay.

Arnold S.: Right.

Jimmy Fallon: This is a real photo, and you just drive it over things and crush things.

AJ Hoge: This is Jimmy Fallon talking. They’re showing a picture of Arnold in front of his tank, smiling, “I’ve got a tank.” Jimmy’s saying, “Ah, so this is your tank. You drive it and run over things and crush them.” Of course, “run over,” means to drive over, drive on top of things, like cars for example. To crush them means to destroy them, right? Like to push them down into a small little ball, like you crush a can if you have a beer can, a Coke can, you drink it and then with both your hands you crush it, you make it small. He crushes cars, he crushes things with his tank.

Arnold S.: That’s right.

Jimmy Fallon: Yeah.

Arnold S.: Why not?

AJ Hoge: That’s right. “Why not?”. He says, “Why not?”

Jimmy Fallon: It’s the best thing in the whole wide world.

Arnold S.: I know.

Jimmy Fallon: Why haven’t we been doing this for a long time?

AJ Hoge: Jimmy says, “That’s the best thing in the whole wide world.” He’s just saying it’s great. The whole wide world is an idiom, it just means the best thing ever.

Jimmy Fallon: Then I thought, I could never get a tank. How did you get a tank?

AJ Hoge: Then Jimmy says, “I thought, I could never get a tank. How did you get the tank?”

How could he buy it? Now Arnold will tell the story.

Arnold S.: This was the very tank that I actually drove in the Austrian army.

AJ Hoge: He’s saying, “This is the tank, the exact tank, that I drove in the Austrian army, the country of Austria. He was in the military when he was young.

Arnold S.: I was 18 years old I went in the Austrian army and I became a tank driver. Then years and years later, decades later, I said to myself, now they don’t need it anymore.

AJ Hoge: He saying, “Years and years later, decades later,” a decade is 10 years. He said, “Well, they don’t need it anymore so, I’ll buy it.”

Arnold S.: Patton tank that the America gave Austria after it became a neutral country after 1955.

AJ Hoge: It’s a Patton tank that America gave Austria after they became an independent country in 1955. A Patton tank is a type of tank, a kind of tank. Patton is the name of an American general, George Patton.

Arnold S.: I drove the tank and we had 500 of those tanks, but then the

AJ Hoge: He’s saying, “I drove that tank, we had 500 of those tanks.”

Arnold S.: Became obsolete, so I asked the Austrian army if I can have it back.

AJ Hoge: Okay, so that’s it. It became obsolete so I asked the Austrian army if I could have it back. Obsolete means, it’s kind of like expired. It means not useful anymore, too old and not useful. Now it’s a old tank from 1955, so now it’s obsolete, now it’s not useful anymore, it’s too old, not useful anymore. The tank is obsolete and so then he bought it from the Austrian government.

Okay, that’s some vocabulary. Now learning from Arnold Schwarzenegger, what do I think of Arnold’s English? First of all I’ve noticed his pronunciation is better.

His pronunciation has improved over the years. If you listen to early Arnold Schwarzenegger speaking from his body building days in America, he had a very strong accent. People often joke about his accent being very strong. It was very heavy his German or Austrian accent.

But now when I listen to that little piece of the interview, it’s actually not bad. He does have a bit of an accent, of course. He still sounds like Arnold but it’s much less heavy. Of course he has been living in America for a long time, decades, and he was the governor of California, he was doing a lot of public speaking, but I’m sure, I’m sure he practices speaking and his accent. He practices pronunciation and he has improved. He’s pretty clear to listen to now, it’s not bad.

Also, he’s got a strong voice. This is something else. He’s confident. When you look at Arnold, in that interview, he always has his chest kind of up usually, right?

He’s a big guy but he always has confidence. Look at his face, he looks people in the eyes. His communication style, his non-verbal communication is strong. It’s confident. That’s important.

People listen to you more when you speak confidently. His pronunciation has improved but he also has very good communication skills. Good eye contact, good body language where it’s nice and strong. He uses a good strong voice too.

A lot of people learning English, they’re, “Ah ah.” The voice will get weak because they don’t feel confident, “Hello, hi, nice to meet you.” I know, I do it sometimes too if I try to say stuff in another language.

You can certainly learn from Arnold and speak in that strong accent. Even his old, old audios from when he was a body builder, even with the strong accent he would always speak confidently. He had that confidence. People like that, people listen to that, people respect that. That’s why for example in my power English course especially I teach you how to speak confidently, so that people will listen to you much more when you’re a confident speaker.

Now finally, do I recommend learning English from Arnold? No, not really of course. He’s good. I think he’s a good role model. You could look at him and say, “Wow, look what he did. He came from Austria, he had a very strong accent. He improved his English. He became a movie star even with strong accent, but that confidence is so important. Then he became governor of California. He improved his pronunciation.”

He’s a very good communicator in English. He’s a good role model but should you listen to him and copy his English? No. Why not? Because he still does have that German accent and there are so many American or British or Canadian or Australian actors that you can copy that have nice, clear, native accents, including me. It’s better in general to learn and imitate, copy native speakers. In my next show I’ll find a native, maybe I’ll find someone from America. I’ll find an American actor or actress and we can listen to their English and I’ll let you know if I recommend.

All right, finally, Effortless English news. What’s happening in the world of Effortless English? What am I doing? First, I will be doing a live Facebook video in two days, March 7th, Vietnam time but not Effortless English Facebook. I will be taking over the Facebook page of Pasal in Vietnam. Pasal is an English training company. I work with them in Vietnam, Effortless English is very popular in Vietnam. I will be on their Facebook page doing a live Facebook video. That’s March 7th, that’s I think the 7th, maybe I’m telling you the wrong date, 7th or 8th I’m not sure. I have to look again.

If you’re Vietnamese, even if you’re not Vietnamese I guess, get on the Pasal, PA-S-A-L, Facebook page. Like them and you can watch my live Facebook. I’ll be answering questions and chatting a bit about English learning. That’s about it, this is my new show format. This is my first time trying this new way of doing the show, having an Effortless English micro-lesson, when I play an old lesson and teach you a little vocab. Also, having a celebrity review, where I teach you a little more vocab, you can listen to a celebrity interview and then I tell you if I recommend their English. I grade their English, review their English. What’s good about it? What’s not so good about it? Should you learn from them?
