Who and Whom
By saying or writing the wrong word you are potentially ruining your chances at getting the score you want in the IELTS, TOEFL, TOEIC or other exams. In a job interview, your interviewer might be afraid of communication issues that might financially hurt the company and, therefore, choose someone else.
Regardless of why you are learning English you need to know the difference between various words in the English language and this course will do just that!
How does this course work?
As a teacher (and a language learner myself) I am a huge fan of quality learning. Learning a language is, for some people, a life time journey so don’t rush it. Concentrate on learning the difference between 3 or 4 sets of words per day (3 to 4 videos), take notes and (very important) apply that knowledge. Remember…..practice, practice, practice!!!
As with most things in life consistency is the key to improving. Don’t watch 10 videos one day and then have a week off. It is better to watch 3 to 4 each day…..every day.
Also, the course is structured in alphabetical order so it is great to use as a future reference. Think of it as a video dictionary for confusing words….ha ha.
Can I improve my English with this course?
Absolutely! It is so important that you learn the difference between two words that have a similar meaning, pronunciation or spelling. If you don’t then you might make an unnecessary mistake that reduces your chances to succeed (pass a test, pass a job interview and so on).
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.
Consistency is key (or king).
As I mentioned before, 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.
I believe that quality is more important than quantity. My rule as an ESL/EFL teacher is to teach between 5 to 10 words per 1-hour class. This is because how many words you study is not important. Only how many words you can use is the number that we should care about. I see many students trying to remember 30 or even 50 words a day! But, the sad thing is the next day they may only remember 4 or 5. I will teach you vocabulary in a way that allows you to retain the vocabulary that you learn.
Enroll now and start improving right away!
So, if you want to make less mistakes when using English then why not enroll in this course? You have nothing to lose and you will be very glad you did.
Thank you and see you soon,

STUDENT FEEDBACK AND REVIEWS
Wolfgang Ehrlich: I am deeply impressed with the course “200+ confusing English words”. Joel puts together confusing words from everyday language and explains them briefly and memorably. Particularly remarkable is his ability to make the word pairs understandable using everyday situations. His explanations of the use of each word pair are easy to remember.
Zakaria: This course is wonderful, I appreciate the simple and clear way of explanation. it’s absolutely beneficial.
Gilles Mouchon: Matches with what was expected. The teacher’s tone is clear and not positive agressive, the explanations are easy to understand.
Marian M.: This course is fantastic (after listening of 10 lessons from section 3:A). + slower speed of speaking and pronunciation (I’m using it as a podcast during my work 🙂 ) + good description of differences + examples in full sentences, so you remember the usage of words much better + at the end of each lesson short summary of words + warnings for not using some word combinations I hope that Joel will add other fantastic english courses in the future 🙂
