Description

This course begins by teaching you how to make basic greetings and introduce yourself the formal and informal way. You will learn how to say goodbye, make offers and requests, offer gratitude and apologies, and welcome visitors. You will learn the different uses of the verb “to get” such as to receive something, to indicate change, and to bring / to buy /to find. You will also study the uses of the verb "to have".

You will then practice your English listening skills. Native speakers are sometimes hard to understand. With this course, you will study the vowels and diphthongs in English, speech patterns, contracted verbs and negatives, and phonetic words. You will also learn that native speakers shorten and link sounds and use different stresses on keywords in a sentence. You will also look into common pronunciation trap with words of the same spelling and same sound.

Many non-native English speakers find that there is quite a difference from the basic informal conversational English to the more formal business-like English. The colloquial expressions used by native English speakers can also be quite confusing for them. With this course, you will be able to practice your listening as well as speaking skills to sound more native-like. Sign up for this course and level up in your spoken and listening English skills.
