Improve your fluency and confidence when you speak?
We all know that feeling...You really want to speak to someone but you are just too nervous. You are worried about making mistakes or embarrassing yourself. But, it doesn’t have to be that way. With a supportive teacher (that’s me) and the right environment you can learn to speak confidently about lots of different topics.
Improve your pronunciation and sound more natural?
Do you worry about your accent when you are speaking or think that the phrases you choose don’t sound correct? That's completely normal, but with practice you can improve your accent and start using natural expressions with ease.
Meet like minded people with the same problems as you?
It can be really difficult when you don’t live in an English speaking country to find a way to practice. Everyone around you speaks your native language and you don’t know anyone else learning English. That’s why a group course can be the perfect way to add some English into your life and meet some new friends along the way!
The best way to improve fluency is regular, consistent practice and that is exactly what this course offers! No time restrictions. You can post whenever you have time. Before work, in your lunch break or even when you are getting ready for bed. You are the boss!
There is a different topic each week to introduce you to new vocabulary, expressions, subjects and help build your confidence in lots of different situations. By speaking English everyday for 4 weeks, your fluency will improve and you’ll be on your way to sounding like a native speaker. Amazing results in a short period of time!
Daily questions to practice speaking
Improving fluency is all about regular practice. You will receive a different question each day and record your answer as video or audio (whichever you prefer). Then you share it with the group, so everyone can see your amazing work!
Detailed corrections for every reply
I watch every video (yes, all of them!) and I give you detailed notes and corrections, including vocabulary, pronunciation, grammar and alternative phrases to help you improve and vary your speaking.
Sometimes it can be hard to think of something to say. We have all been there! So, I have create a list of suggested words and phrases for each day, about that week’s topic. You'll be able to use these resources to help you find new vocabulary and phrases to use. Activating all the new vocabulary right away, so that you don’t forget any of it...bonus!
“I have to admit that I was lacking motivation, I prefer to do anything instead of improving my English level. So if you are hesitating you don't need to, I promise you that this is not "another" English course. This is the right course to become a fluent English speaker and improve your skills.”
“When I see myself recording the first video I can feel the evolution in confidence and how I’ve improved in being able to continue when I make mistakes. I couldn’t see the evolution day by day but the proof is the video time… they rose every week!! Another important thing I want to highlight is the topics. Each topic makes you think of a specific type of vocabulary and how you can elaborate the answer, so you expand your English speaking limits. I’ve enjoyed it so much that I am going to enrol in the next one!”
“You can immerse yourself in English with this course. As soon as you join this course, you will inevitably find yourself in an intensive English-speaking environment. This means this course makes itself a perfect opportunity to give your English stretch so that you can take it to the next level. Sam gives us detailed feedback about expressions and pronunciations for each speech you post, so with his help, you can make your English sound more natural quicker.”
How does it work?
Each week, there will be one subject to focus on. You will receive a question from Monday to Friday as a prompt. With each question, I also give you examples phrases and vocabulary to boost your active vocabulary instantly! You then record your response to the question, either as a video or audio recording and upload this to the group. I then review your response and offer corrections, alternative sayings, vocabulary and pronunciation improvements, for you to work on in your future videos.
When can I do it?
Anytime! This is YOUR course and it’s completely flexible for you. In the morning before work, on your lunch break or at 2am when you can’t get to sleep. Whatever works in your schedule, you can take part as and when you get chance!.
How do I answer?
You will record a video / audio response, that is 10 minutes or less, each day and then share it in the group. Voice / audio messages are accepted but, personally, I think that a video helps other people in the group get to know you and you also improve your presentation skills too!
What happens if I miss a day?
No worries, you can catch up when you have time. I recommend recording a video everyday because regular practice is important. But if you are too busy or life gets in the way then you can record it another day. The weekend (Saturday and Sunday) are free to let you catch up and prepare for the new questions next week.
What level are the students?
The course is aimed at intermediate to advanced students that want to increase their speaking confidence, fluency and naturalness. The questions and documents will be challenging so it may be hard as a beginner. But, if you are willing to work hard and accept the challenge, then you are very welcome!
Can I speak to the other students?
YES! This is a group course and speaking to each other is all part of the process. Have a chat, ask questions and watch each other's videos. You can all learn from each other and have fun together too!
