Do you feel like you learn new grammar but you don’t know how to use it in practice?

Do you find grammar overwhelming and difficult?

Would you like to have grammatical structures explained step-by-step?

Is your knowledge of grammar on the basic level or would you like to revise advanced grammar that you’ve once learned?

This course is perfect for you! :)

This course is for students who would like to learn some of the advanced grammatical structures in English. During this course I will not only explain the grammar rules but also, most importantly, I will provide you with plenty of examples of how to put those rules into practice.

In order to help you take your grammar to the advanced level I have prepared video lectures for you as well as some exercises to check if you've understood everything. In each lecture I explain step-by-step when and how to use the particular grammatical structure and I provide you with example sentences. 

After taking this course you will be able to use advanced grammar easily. You will also feel confident in using a variety of grammatical structures both in written and spoken English. The course will also be helpful for those who are soon taking language proficiency exams or need to brush up on their grammar for school or work.

Don’t hesitate and join the course now to finally learn the grammar which has always seemed difficult. It’s actually easy, trust me :)
