Description

The fact is, written English and spoken English are very different. It’s probably the reason you’re here looking at this course. You may also be wondering, “What is the best way to learn spoken English?”

If you want to master real native English expressions, you have to learn by example, and that’s the focus of this course. In each lesson of this course, we will carefully go over the most common daily American English expressions that native English speakers use when talking with each other. Here’s the lesson structure:

  1. Learn the correct pronunciation of the expression

  2. Understand the meaning and background

  3. Learn the various uses and meanings of the expression

  4. Look at real-life examples, in context

You will be able to deeply understand each expression and also learn how to use it in your daily life!

You won't just learn English idioms in this course, you’ll master them, which is important for exams like IELTS and TOEFL. If you feel uncertain about anything you're learning through the course, I will answer any questions you have.

I hope to see you in the first lesson!
