Hi All,

I recently came across a post by Moses McCormick from a while ago where he gives links to his 4-step FLR
technique youtube videos. He often refers to "an outline" in the video and it seems in his original post on this site
the outline for Step#1 was given. But I cannot find the outline for Steps #2–4. Does anyone know where I can find
this outline?

Thanks so much,
stripes889

I will first start off with how he uses a textbook for his FLR.

Thanks for the post delta910. This is indeed helpful. However, I am specifically looking for the written outline that
is meant to accompany these videos. As you can see at the link I provided above, he gives a written outline for
Step#1 that accompanies the video for Step#1. It's comprised of all the interrogatives and the keywords. I'm looking
for the written pieces that accompany the other three steps, where he gives written examples of "difficulties," a
sample introduction, and then examples of sentences from the textbooks. He does go over this a lot in the videos,
but I was just hoping to find the more detailed outline that he wrote up. THX.

I just watched several of these videos and I must say that his concept of a "keyword" is completely mysterious,
sometimes a preposition, sometimes a conjunction, sometimes a verb, sometimes a phrase. Is there any logic to
this or can only Moses identify keywords?

microsnout: No it isn't the case that only Moses can identify keywords. This is my understanding though and I'll say
up front it might not be that immediately helpful. When you've studied a few different languages to an intermediate
level or maybe even a little lower, you start to see similarities in what kinds of grammar points are talked about in
the chapters, and a lot of what Moses calls keywords are these types of grammar points. They aren't always single
words, but rather words or short phrases that allow you to connect, juxtapose, or relate different ideas. Basically
they are what allow you to expand sentences beyond just a single statement. I actually think this keyword idea is
pretty spot on, though it might sound strange. I think this concept will become more clear once you have studied a
few different languages.

I'm in agreement with stripes889 here. There is not a magic list between any languages, of words that work. Only particular phrases/words/constructions, that will aid you in making more accomplished sentences.

I went to the shop. / I needed to buy beans.
I went to the shop because I needed to buy beans

I have beans. / I can make soup.
I have beans, therefore, I can make soup.


There is no set list of particles/words/whatever,it's just bits of the new language that will help you to not sound like a robot.



therefore

I'm curious. Can anybody tell me what FLR actually stands for? Thanks.
