What is Learn to Speak English: People's Appearance and Personality

This course is going to advance your English speaking skills and vocabulary with the main focus on talking about people, especially to describe their appearance and character or personality. You will learn real language in context to make it easier for you to understand first and to use the new language you learn as part of your active language – the kind of English you will use in conversation and even in writing.

This course is divided into three main sections:

  1. Describing Appearance: in this section, we have 4 lessons that will teach you everything you need to know when it comes to describing people's appearance starting from the easy and familiar words and moving towards rich and sophisticated words that will make your descriptions a lot more meaningful and accurate. You will be learning everything in context, with a huge workbook you can use to check your understanding and practice the new language you learn, and online activities all made especially for this course to make it possible for you to practice anytime anywhere.

  2. Describing Character or Personality: In this section, we have 6 lessons that will teach you everything you need to give detailed, deep and accurate descriptions of people's character or personality. We will also start from familiar words and move towards the richer and deeper words keeping in mind that everything you will learn here is common language, so you get to learn only the English you can use in your conversations and even writing. There is also a huge workbook that covers everything we are going to learn in this section, and online activities you can access from any device any time you want, and of course, completely for free. You will not be learning only adjectives in this section, but you will also learn phrases, expressions, and collocations that will benefit your English language greatly.

  3. Parts of the Body Idioms:  This final section of the course includes 10 lessons with each lesson focusing on idioms that relate to one or more parts of the body. The idioms we are going to learn about are all idioms that are widely used. I made sure to choose only the ones you can use in everyday life, and I picked the ones that are centered around people to stay in tune with the main theme of the course, which is talking about people. There will also be special workbook chapters for these lessons and online activities as well.

Now for the big question: Is this course for me?

I will be honest with you and say that this course is definitely beneficial for all levels, but you will benefit the most from this course if your level is above elementary, and that is why I even listed the course as an intermediate level. Besides that, this course is definitely for you if you do believe that you need to practice on your own to really learn English, which I made super easy for you with the workbook I made especially for this course and the many online activities I have created also especially for this course. I have made the video lessons to be as easy-to-understand as humanly possible, but my advice to you is that watching the video lessons is never going to be enough to learn any language; you need to make some effort, too.

So, if you know some English and you are ready to put some consistent effort into the course, I assure you, you will never find a better course anywhere.

Finally, I would like to remind you that I will by your side all the way. You can ask me about anything you want any time you want, and I will happily help you in any way I can. I got your back, so what are you waiting for? Go ahead and enroll in the course now!
