Learning English is a VERY comprehensive task. You just have to keep
working on it. The more you learn and practice, the better you become.

get there! ;)

WHO is this course for?
First of all, it is not
for complete beginners. Forget about it, in this case it would be too
Intermediate students will benefit the most out of it. If you have some
basic knowledge of vocabulary and grammar, and you want to take it to
the next level – definitely check this course out.
Unfortunately, the course does not offer its own glossary of words
So you should definitely keep your dictionary at hand, and make sure
you understand all the new words (the videos are using pictures to
demonstrate, but sometimes it's just not enough, right? :)
My Personal Experience
First off, I really like the idea of dedicating each day of the month
for a different video lesson. On the one hand, it doesn't create an
overload, and on the other hand, it "forces" you to make a progress,
which I think is awesome.
The teacher is friendly and speaks very clearly.
The subjects covered
are important for everyday usage of English. Here is an example:
This is one of the videos you will be getting. It describes count and
not count noun. (This is an important subject, since it can definitely
be confusing for English learners!)
Other important subjects that will be covered in the lessons are:
Important grammar rules
And even some beautiful moral lessons about life
(Such as Thomas Edison's statement: "Our
greatest weakness lies in giving up. The most certain way to succeed is
always to try just one more time"!)
What are students saying?
very excited to have such a good source that helps me improve my
“Your sessions are mind-blowing, as a non native speaker it’s very
helpful and we learn so much.”
want to make a commitment so that I can improve my English skills.
These video classes are amazing. The teachers speaks slowly, and I can
understand every thing they say. Thanks a lot!”
