Description

My lessons help you to Master English and Discover the World.


With me you are not just another student. Not just another learner. You are an Explorer - ready to explore and master English 1 word at a time.


For every 1 new word you master, you can make 7 more sentences in English.


Enroll to my course ONLY if you are ready and willing to start...


Have you ever had a problem where you don't understand how to use commas? Do you know what colours are all about? Have you ever wondered how to use a semicolon?


Then, this course was made for you! Enroll now if you want to take your English to the next level and to join the team of Explorers!


You will learn:

  1. Understand how commas, colons and semicolons are different.

  2. Spot the difference between commas, apostrophes and inverted commas; and how to use them.

  3. Learn some uses, and subtle uses, for semicolons.


With my whiteboard and marker pens, I will teach you how to Master them and other important grammar rules too, such as:

They break up sentences and which one to use is your choice, yet it depends on the sentence and what you want to say.

  • When listing things it is common to use a comma (,).

  • Colons (:) are often used before a list.

  • Semicolons (;) break up sentences that are too closely related for a comma.


We will explore English together as I show you mistakes and broaden the topics to go beyond just the lesson objectives.

My name is Adrian and I am on Udemy so you can Master English and Discover the World.

Exploring and Mastering English 1 word at a time - for every 1 word you master that is 7 new sentences you can make. Which word will you master next?

Since October 2017, when I first became TESOL certified, I have taught 10,000s of Chinese students of all ages online on a major Chinese English educational platform. I left in July 2020.


I learned a lot about China while I was teaching them, so I consider myself well-travelled and international. I also speak Spanish.


My classes are informative as I share concepts, ideas and philosophy because I don't just want the lessons to be about boring topics and rules, but to expand the lesson and share new ideas to broaden your horizons. When I was teaching at the Chinese company I saw the whole thing as a cultural exchange and I am bringing that philosophy here too.

1.Take your speaking to the next level.

2. Challenge your reading and listening abilities.

3. Test your understanding.

4. Expand your grammar understanding.

5. Put your English thinking skills to the test.

6. Join the team and community of Explorers and master English - 1 word at a time.
