Description

This course is from a result oriented person who is offering you a chance here to build a new simple understanding of English Grammar. I've created this "map" after teaching English for business, TOEFL preparation, IELTS preparation, English for media and after watching more than 400 movies which helped me to see application of the rules I'm explaining here.

The aim of this course is to help every English user to use it correctly to avoid any misunderstandings that may occur because of grammatical mistakes and errors like the one I'm explaining in the promo.

After this course you will have a good understanding and usage of the following tenses and you will be able to use them in sentences and questions. The tenses I'm explaining are: simple present, simple past, present continuous, past continuous and basics of present perfect.

This detailed course takes you smoothly in a virtual class which will enable you to understand those tenses and apply them on your daily life. Multiple quizzes are included as downloadable files. You will also find a lot of examples in the course, as downloadable files, to show you how to answer these quizzes and have the most benefit.

  • This course also has English SUBTITLES, so make sure you use them

Finally, note that this course will be updated according to your needs and to my "map's" enhancements, so be sure to stay active in the course.

Trainer and Motivational speaker

My name is Amgad El-Sakka. I began my career as a journalist.

Because I realized the fact that it's really easy to publish any ideas in any community by knocking the right doors with the right force by the right way in the right time and that the media abuses this fact, I changed my career to be a professional translator and I worked there for about one year and a half.

After that, I joined another career which is English teaching and training and I worked for 16 hours 6 days a week for a while . Then, I left professional translation to be who I am now and who I aspired to be; a full time English and soft skills trainer and I'm writing my first book.

All of these changes in my careers taught me that we usually get drifted away from our dreams while doing things we don't want to because we're scared of doing what we aspire lest we fail, especially if you thought you weren't ready (like in my case as I don't have any academic degrees to teach English or write a book in it).

In my life I've had four dilemmas that taught me a lot; the first was that my mother had the H1N1 but she was cured, the second was me having anger management and hesitation issues, the third was that I lost my right eye for 5 days and the fourth was that I broke my right wrist and spent 3 months in the plaster cast and learned how to use my left arm just like my right arm because I'm not left handed.(Those were dilemmas for me because my life was so peaceful).

From those four dilemmas I've learnt that life is too short not to learn things in it. I've also learnt that the day I waste without learning means that I was dead on it.

I pride myself on having , an increasing number of, 45 certificates in different fields like; HR, business planning, project management, customer service, marketing, SEO, leadership, creativity, etc.

So, I'm sharing my experience here with people who are passionate to gain it.
