Description

Are you tired of boring listening activities that you don't care about? Over 100 MILLION PEOPLE are interested in the Floyd Mayweather/Conor McGregor boxing fight coming up. Are you one of them? That is what these listening extracts are about. Listen to these real listening excerpts and boost your English to new world.

THE COURSE:

You will hear real podcasts and programs and you will do real listening activities that I do in the classroom. This course is divided into sections, and each section is like its own individual listening class. How much do English classes cost near you? I've designed these courses to be fun and interactive. Each section has a different style listening activity to keep you engaged.

CUSTOMIZE THE COURSE for you:

Each section is broken down in at least 3 parts:

- Main listening - Interview or Conversation with an activity 

- Answers - I breakdown the answers and explain why they are the answers just like in a classroom

- Language Highlight - We look at specialized words or expressions to help you grow in your fluency and understand the listening better.

**If you're more advanced and confident in your listening, do the Main Listening first. If you're less advanced, do the Language Highlight first, so you know some of the difficult vocabulary, and then do the Main Listening.

THIS COURSE INCLUDES:

- 2 hours of video instruction and AUTHENTIC LISTENING practice

- ENGAGING ACTIVITIES that are used in the classroom

- An e-workbook to write down your answers or follow along

- INTERACTIVE model to help you practice
