Description
  • Is it sometimes hard to understand what English speakers say to you?
  • Are you frustrated that your English isn't getting any better?
  • Do you wish you could speak English more fluently and naturally?

Then this course is for you!

All the lessons are based on real recordings discussing the broad topic of WORK. Together we will analyse the language used in each lesson to understand how English speakers really use the language in order to help you to learn.

All the new language is in context as this is the best way for you to understand the meaning and to remember it all later.

All the lessons are animated, which makes them fun, entertaining but also memorable to help you learn all the new language.

The most important vocabulary is carefully explained with examples to help you understand the meaning.

There are three comprehension questions at the end of every lesson to check your general understanding of the lesson.

There is an animated explanation of the featured grammar point of each lesson, which makes it easier to understand how we really use grammar in context.

Finally, every lesson has a downloadable pdf of the transcript and an interactive practice quiz so you can learn the new language in more depth.

In total, you will find almost two hours of video content to help you learn real life English.

If you have any questions or any problems, feel free to get in touch with me and I'll be happy to help! And don't forget to practise all the new language with other students all around the world here on Udemy.

Good luck and enjoy the course!

All the best, 

Dan.
