Now that the world has changed, we want to be more serious about communication. English is the most widely used language to communicate across cultures. If we want the best the world has to offer, we need our English to be the best.
There's written English, and there's spoken English. If you don't know the differences, you need this class.
Your teacher, Nina Weinstein, wrote the most widely used book of spoken English -- "Whaddaya Say", published by Pearson Education.
"ESL English" is the "magic sauce" of English listening. In each lesson, you'll enjoy many practice exercises written by Nina, the author of twenty English textbooks for major New York publishers.
"ESL English" is for people who want to talk to real English speakers and understand what they say. Both the beginning level, "ESL English", and her intermediate listening course, "More ESL English", are in the Udemy for Business program.
Nina Weinstein teaches English to employees of some of the biggest companies in the world; Toyota, Microsoft, Mitsubishi, and others. "ESL English" has many of the lessons that she gives for those companies.
Nina has a Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics/Teaching English from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and she taught her listening program at Harvard University as a teaching fellow. "ESL English", "MORE ESL English", and "(How to get) Your Best English" are Steps 1, 2 and 3 of her very popular English listening skills program.
"Easy, natural way to listen to native English speakers. I would absolutely recommend it. Before taking this English course, I went through many English courses, but none of them were as comprehensive as 'ESL English'. It takes you by the hand and teaches you the real secrets to understanding native English speakers. Easy to follow and entertaining. I would absolutely recommend it." Salvatore Scaniglia
"Exactly what I wanted to learn! I couldn't recognize those English sounds before going through these lessons." Vadim Dzyuban
"This English course helps you a lot on your listening, 5-star recommended." Sant Cheung
After this course, you'll be able to understand English spoken at a natural speed much better. When you can understand the real spoken English around you, you can also improve your English conversation, grammar, vocabulary, and even pronunciation. If you can hear English words more correctly, you can say them correctly. Very important -- You'll get lots of practice exercises with many different English speakers from the real world in each lesson. This practice will help you to test and improve your hearing and understanding of real English speakers in real situations.
Note: There are three courses. "ESL English" is the beginning listening course. "MORE ESL English" and "(How to get) Your Best English" are the intermediate and advanced levels. Please choose the right level for you. For the best results, take the whole listening program, but Nina suggests taking "ESL English" first.
