Description

With 12 years of teaching English to students all around the world, I understand the importance students have to learn authentic vocabulary and this is not always possible from a typical course book. Native speakers use expressions and common terminology to communicate their ideas and this can often be very different to what we learn in the classroom.

Idioms and phrasal verbs are 2 ESSENTIAL elements to speak like a native. The more you use them, the more natural your speech will become and the better communicator you will be.

They help you integrate culturally, create relationships, increase your confidence and improve your language abilities.

This course has been used with hundreds of students all over the world, from Asia to South America.

Each lesson:

  • Focuses on a specific topic to provide context

  • Teaches you new idioms AND phrasal verbs

  • Encourages you to learn the new vocabulary using ALL language skills; reading, writing, listening & speaking

  • Includes a variety of exercises

  • Requires your interaction and feedback

  • Offers feedback for your interaction

  • Provides personal support from the teacher

When you're able to start using this terminology with native speakers, you will be VERY surprised by their reaction. They will be extremely impressed that a non-native uses such local language.

The course is dynamic, engaging and will improve your language ability.

Who this course is for:
  • English language learners
  • Students who want to increase their vocabulary
  • Students who want to learn native language
