Understand conversations better, learn the expressions native speakers use, and speak more fluently.
If you’re an upper-intermediate or advanced student, you might feel like you have a decent understanding of English, and you can communicate in practical situations… but sometimes when you hear two native English speakers talking, you have little to no idea what they’re saying!
Not only are they talking fast, but they’re using all sorts of expressions you’ve never heard before:
- phrasal verbs like wiped out, tone down, and barge into;
- slang words like diss, lame, and killer;
- and idioms like “work out the kinks” and “grin and bear it.“
What kind of English is this? You might almost feel like they’re speaking a different language! Suddenly you start to lose confidence and feel like you really don’t know English very well after all.
Informal spoken English – like the kind you hear in movies and native speakers’ conversations – is full of expressions that English textbooks often don’t teach.
So how can you learn these expressions WITHOUT getting confused and lost in the conversation?
This course is designed to help you!
The Everyday English Speaking Course – Level 2 has more advanced conversations that are full of common informal expressions used by native English speakers. It teaches you the phrases in context so that you’ll be able to remember and use them – and become more fluent in English as a result.
Here’s how each lesson works:
1) Listen to the conversation while trying to answer comprehension questions. This is difficult, but it’s very important to develop the skill of being able to understand the main details, even if you don’t understand every word yet.
2) Read/listen to my explanation. I’ll teach you all the new words and expressions in the context of the conversation.
3) Next, try the vocabulary exercise to review and practice the expressions you’ve learned.
4) Finally, one of the most valuable parts of each lesson is the opportunity for you to send in a recording of your speaking and get feedback and correction.
This method prioritizes ACTIVE learning – you’re not just passively listening to me tell you about the English language, you’re actively putting it into practice. Active learning like this is the best way to improve your English skills for life!
Level 2 of the Everyday English Speaking Course includes:
- 45 text and audio lessons
- Teacher feedback on short answers and speaking exercises
After you buy the course, you’ll have instant access to the lessons, and you can also download them.
(There’s no time limit for finishing).
