Are you sure that you speak and write English politely?
Even though you don't realise it, other people may think you are being a bit rude sometimes..
If you speak and write English more politely, there is a good chance that you will:
find better work,
impress native speakers,
be taken more seriously,
deal with confrontations better,
get people to say "yes" more,
make more friends,
get more dates,
and in general have a happier more relaxed life.
This course covers a lot of different areas, and only takes 40 minutes to complete. It is well worth doing, and it could have quite a dramatic positive effect on your life.
Enroll in the course now, and see you on the other side.

I completed a BA (Ed) at the University of Reading in the UK in Educational Studies that also gave me qualified teacher status in the UK.
I worked as a school teacher in the UK for several years, and I also taught at an international school in Bangkok, Thailand for two years.
My students at the international school came from many different countries, so the type of English teaching I taught was immersive teaching of English, and then of course the usual standard English language learning, including phonics, speaking, listening, reading and writing.
