Description

If English is your second language, it can be very frustrating to feel behind the conversation when talking with native English speakers.

Why does this happen?

One reason is that native English speakers use common phrases that come from culture. That means, looking at each word in the phrase won’t tell you the meaning. The result is that you’re not sure exactly what others are talking about and you can’t express yourself as naturally as you would like to.

If you’ve ever felt this way, at work or in your daily life, you will get a lot out of this course. This course will focus on English phrases more common in workplace situations, however, the course is useful for anyone interested in learning American English phrases, expressions, and idioms (especially those taking exams like IELTS and TOEFL).

You won't just learn English phrases in this course, you will master them—you will know how to use them in your daily life. And if you feel uncertain about anything you're learning throughout the course, I will answer any questions you have.

Let the journey begin!
