The course is structured around an audio story. Each chapter is then broken into sections, where we analyze and learn all the most common words and features of fluent English. In the Fluency Drills section, you'll practice everything you've learned until you have it mastered. By the end of the course, your English will be at a much higher level, both in understanding what native speakers say, and in your ability to speak with smooth, high-level English.

We are a group of language teaching professionals with decades of experience between us. Our mission is to teach the major world languages using modern language learning techniques like contextual learning, pattern recognition, construction branching, S.L.T. and more. The two principles of the Language Mastery Group are:

MARK THOMSON: A native New Yorker and lifelong instructor, first of guitar and later of languages. Mark is a self-taught, fluent speaker of Russian. He created the popular Russian Accelerator online Russian course, along with numerous other Russian courses including Russian Alphabet Mastery, and the Russian Made Easy podcast. He also created English Mastery Method in which he teaches English to native Russian speakers, and many other more advanced English courses under the Master Fluent English brand: Speak Fluent English, Understand Fluent English, and numerous Live Conversations courses. Mark's expertise is in detecting and explaining the patterns of grammar within any language, along with teaching it efficiently. Mark resides part time in Virginia, and part time in Ukraine.

 

GREG TORKELSON: Originally from Arizona, Greg is a self-taught speaker (and reader) of Japanese. He has been living and teaching full time in Japan for over a decade. Greg is the creator of a variety of Japanese courses including Japanese Mastery Method and Kanji Krusher. One of Greg's specialties is in clearly explaining the complexities of Japanese grammar, especially their system of linguistic particles. Perhaps his greatest expertise is in his ability to break down the complex Chinese characters known as kanji into recognizeable and memorable visual images.

Greg is also a co-founder of the Master Fluent English brand of adanced English courses.
