In this comprehensive course, you'll learn how to speak fluent, American English. You'll learn how native speakers actually pronounce things, and you'll learn the special words and grammar that are unique to fluently spoken English.

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.
