A basic level of English.
A notebook for taking notes.
People who effortlessly use idioms correctly in conversation really impress me. However, you must use them correctly because if you don’t, you’ll end up sounding like a fool. That is why you need this course. Do you know the meaning of this sentence: I heard through the grapevine that Mary is pregnant. How about…. I’m afraid you have missed the boat. And…. I’m going to call it a day. If you study English but couldn’t quite guess the meaning of these sentences then enroll now because this course is for you! What is this course? This course is designed to give you a good understanding of the 100 most common idioms found in the English language. I have divided this course into 20 days. Each day we will focus on 5 idioms. As a student try to approach this course as an intense boot camp. After you have completed the 20 days there are still bonus idioms that can be learnt. How is the course structured? Each day will start with an introduction video. Then, I have 5 videos (one per idiom) explaining the idioms and how to use them in conversation with the use of example sentence. After watching the videos there is a short quiz. Finally, there are 2 assignments for you to do to prove to yourself (and me!) that you fully understand the idioms. The first is a writing assignment where you will create your own sentences using the idioms. The second is a speaking assignment where you will read your sentences so I can listen to your pronunciation. I have tried to explain each of the idioms in a way that is very understandable through the use of clear pronunciation, enunciation and enthusiasm combined with the use of short downloadable videos. Why should I choose this course over other courses? Enthusiastic teacher. I think I teach this course in an enthusiastic way and hope that this enthusiasm spreads to you. I believe that if you want to learn anything, you must be enthusiastic or you will simply give up. There is a finish line that you can see. By knowing that this course is only 20 days, I hope that it provides you with the feeling that it is short sprint and not a marathon. Consistency is key (or king). It’s much more effective to study a few minutes a day than to study for a few hours once or twice a week. I want English to be your hobby that you enjoy not your habit that you hate. By only studying for a few minutes a day (but doing it every day) it is less likely that you will come to hate learning. Remember what you learn. By limiting ourselves to focusing 5 idioms per day we are able to prevent the common confusions experienced by overloading yourself with various idioms. Sign up now and start speaking right away! So, if you want to learn to use English idioms with more accuracy then why not enroll in this course? You will be very glad you did. Thank you and see you soon, Joel
