Advanced English Grammar Course
“This is the best English course I’ve ever taken! The explanations in all lessons are very clear and detailed. Besides, I got to know the mistakes that non-native English speakers commonly make. What’s more interesting is, there are writing tasks in every lesson and I could send my writing to you for correction! I love it very much! Through this, I got to know my grammatical mistakes that I’d been making for years.” – Foong, Malaysia
Do you have “the proficiency problem”?
If you’ve been studying English for a long time, then you might be experiencing what I like to call “the proficiency problem.”
The proficiency problem usually strikes when you reach the upper intermediate level.
By now, your English is reasonably good. You can communicate, understand, and be understood without much difficulty. You can use English proficiently.
So… what’s the problem?
The problem is that when you’re at this level, it’s very hard to find lessons that will really challenge you and help you get to the next level in your English.
Other people might say, “Your English is fine!”
…but you KNOW that there are still things you struggle with, such as:
- Using mixed tenses together
- More complex ideas and sentence structures
- Prepositions and other small connecting words
- Mastering more advanced details of the English language
One of the worst parts is often simply not being sure if your sentences are perfect, or if you’re actually making mistakes but nobody is correcting you because they think your English is already “good enough.”
But you don’t want your English to be “good enough.”
You want it to be GREAT.
If this describes you, then you will love the new Advanced English Grammar Course here at Espresso English.
This course will help you master the more advanced aspects of using the English language, with clear and straightforward explanations of even the most complicated topics.
And here’s what’s even more important – the lessons have a practical focus, creating opportunities for you not just to “study” or “learn” grammar, but instead to
- SEE the grammar in action
- Truly UNDERSTAND how it works
- And USE it yourself.
The goal is not to memorize rules (because that’s boring – and nobody has time to try to think about the rules when writing or speaking) but rather to internalize them so that you can produce correct sentences naturally and consistently.
In addition, during the course you can send me your writing and get personalized correction and feedback. This is one of the most valuable parts of the course, because you’ll have a native speaker to help you fix the mistakes that you might not even know you’re making!
The Advanced English Grammar Course will help you master the advanced details of the English language.
There are 45 lessons, and they are yours to keep forever – so you can study at your own pace and review them anytime in the future.
The course will cost $45 – that’s just $1 per lesson.
So… do you want to take your English from “good enough” to “great”?

Irina, from Russia:
“I liked your very clear explanations, lots of exercises for practice. It is very well structured and each lesson is not too long and not too short – just exactly what I would call a perfect lesson length.
Lots of examples in each lesson are very helpful and make it easier to understand and learn. This course helped me to meet a lack in my knowledge of grammar, find out interesting nuances in English grammar that I have never met before.
I also liked the relaxed manner in which students can turn in their homework. It is very helpful in taking lessons without hurry and studying each grammar topic thoroughly.
I just love the way you treat your students and teach, it is a great example for me, as a teacher myself, to follow. Thank you for all your hard work and your tireless enthusiasm which is communicated to your students through your kind and friendly attitude.
It’s a been a great pleasure to be your student, and hopefully one day I’ll be able to buy one of your courses again. Thank you so much for your lessons! I enjoyed them very much!”
