Have you ever found yourself wanting to compliment a friend’s dress and unable to find the English words? If you were speaking your native language, you would perfectly describe the way you feel about their outfit but can you discuss fashion in English?
That’s where this course comes in. Do you want to say someone ‘has impeccable style’? We’ve got the vocabulary to help you express your thoughts and feelings about clothes. Speaking a new language shouldn’t hold your personality back so let these lessons unleash your inner fashion critic as you learn the various different ways to compliment or criticize clothes in English.
The course begins by laying out useful phrases that you can practice with our interactive exercises. We then explain grammatical ‘inversion’ (in which the noun and verb change places) and show you how to employ downtoners, collocations and idioms to discuss clothes. This English speaking course enriches your vocabulary and quickly boosts your confidence in this global language. Sign up and our tried and tested formula of reinforcing learning through questions will soon have you booking a spot in Fashion Week.Start Course Now
