hrasal Verbs in Conversation Course
Are you frustrated with phrasal verbs?
Are you confused by the differences between take up, take in, take out, take off, take away, take over, and take back?
Phrasal verbs can make it difficult to understand spoken English.
even if you've studied the language for a long time.
Many students learn English from textbooks, but when they visit an English-speaking country or talk with a native speaker, their understanding is limited - because the textbook didn't focus on the phrasal verbs that are SO common in everyday spoken English.
If you want to be fluent in English, you NEED to know phrasal verbs and how they are used in everyday situations and conversations.
This course will teach you 500 phrasal verbs.
. but it's NOT just memorizing lists.
That's not very effective - and it's boring too!
Instead, you'll learn the phrasal verbs in context through stories and conversations, as well as practice exercises to help you use the phrasal verbs in YOUR English immediately.
Advanced English Grammar Course
Do You Have "The Proficiency Problem"?
If you've been studying English for a long time, then you might be experiencing what I like to call "the proficiency problem."
The proficiency problem usually strikes when you reach the upper intermediate level.
By now, your English is reasonably good. You can communicate, understand, and be understood without much difficulty. You can use English proficiently.
So. what's the problem?
The problem is that when you're at this level, it's very hard to find lessons that will really challenge you and help you get to the next level in your English.
Other people might say, "Your English is fine!"
.but you KNOW that there are still things you struggle with,such as:
Using mixed tenses together
More complex ideas and sentence structures
Prepositions and other small connecting words
Mastering more advanced details of the English language
One of the worst parts is often simply not being sure if your sentences are perfect, or if you're actually making mistakes but nobody is correcting you because they think your English is already "good enough."
But You Don't Want Your English To Be "Good Enough."
You Want It To Be GREAT.
If this describes you, then you will love the new Advanced English Grammar Course here at Espresso English.
This course will help you master the more advanced aspects of using the English language, with clear and straightforward explanations of even the most complicated topics.
And here's what's even more important - the lessons have a practical focus, creating opportunities for you not just to "study" or "learn" grammar, but instead to
SEE the grammar in action
Truly UNDERSTAND how it works
And USE it yourself.
The goal is not to memorize rules (because that's boring - and nobody has time to try to think about the rules when writing or speaking) but rather to internalize them so that you canproduce correct sentences naturally and consistently.
In addition, during the course you can send me your writing and get personalized correction and feedback. This is one of the most valuable parts of the course, because you'll have a native speaker to help you fix the mistakes that you might not even know you're making!
The Advanced English Grammar Course Will Help You Master The Advanced Details Of The English Language.
There are 45 lessons, and they are yours to keep forever - so you can study at your own pace and review them anytime in the future.
The course will cost $45 - that's just $1 per lesson.
So. Do You Want To Take Your English From "Good Enough" To "Great"?

American English Pronunciation Course & Shadowing with Shayna
Did you know that one of the FIRST things other people notice about your English is your pronunciation?
People often make instant assumptions about the level of your English, based on how good (or bad) your pronunciation is.
If you make a lot of pronunciation mistakes - or if you just have a strong accent - then it will be harder for you to communicate.
Even if you have good grammar and vocabulary. other people might not know what you're saying simply because of your pronunciation.
One of the worst experiences as a language learner (and I've experienced this myself!) is when you say something and other people don't understand you.
They just look at you in confusion. or they might frown and say, "What?"
This is VERY embarrassing!
What's worse, it makes you lose confidence in your own English. You begin to doubt yourself, and then it will be even more difficult to speak the next time, because you'll be worrying about whether or not people will understand you.
Now, imagine yourself speaking English
clearly, confidently, and correctly.
Imagine native speakers understanding you perfectly and even complimenting you on your English!
Does that sound good to you?
The American English Pronunciation Course and the NEW "Shadowing with Shayna" accent training will help you reach your goal of speaking clear, confident, and correct English.
In the American English Pronunciation Course, you will learn:
All the sounds of American English, with lots of practice exercises
How to master the difference between similar sounds, and fix pronunciation errors. It's important to correct mistakes before they become bad habits!
How to make your spoken English more connected, fluid, and natural with lessons on reductions, linking, and intonation.
At the end of the course, you can also send me speaking samples and get a personal evaluation of your pronunciation - so you can find out exactly how to improve even further.
The next level of training is a new set of lessons
called "Shadowing with Shayna."
Shadowing is a technique in which you repeat phrases immediately after me, imitating my pronunciation and intonation very closely.
It's a great way to reduce your foreign accent and practice speaking more continuously (without so many pauses between words).
You can "shadow" with any audio recording. but "Shadowing with Shayna" contains 30 lessons that are specifically designed to help you practice easily and effectively.
The audio includes pauses for you to repeat after me, and the text on the video shows you exactly where the stressed syllables and words are.
The American English Pronunciation Course + Shadowing with Shayna will help you get great pronunciation - so that you can speak more confidently, being CERTAIN that other people will be able to understand your English.
Slang & Informal English
It can be frustrating if you have a good level of English and you can understand newspaper articles and texts. but when you watch a TV show, a movie, or listen to native English speakers, you get lost when they use slang and idioms that you've never heard before!
3 Major Problems With Slang Lists & Dictionaries:
#1 - They often teach slang that's too old. or too new
A lot of the slang lists currently online are either outdated, with old expressions that have gone out of style - or the opposite problem: they are SO new that many of the expressions are not yet mainstream and may not actually become common in English.
#2 - They don't give you an idea of when to use the word
Slang lists do not teach you when it's appropriate and when it's NOT appropriate to use each expression. and you could end up offending someone, or making a ridiculous-sounding sentence when you try to use a slang word in the wrong situation or context.
#3 - They don't include audio
It's VERY important to hear slang words in addition to just reading them. because slang and informal English is more frequently spoken than written! You won't find these expressions in textbooks or newspaper articles.
That's Why I Created The
Slang & Informal English Audio E-Book!
To make this book, I searched through THOUSANDS of slang words and selected the most popular, most current expressions. This is the slang used today - NOT the slang from 20 years ago.
1000 English Collocations in 10 Minutes a Day
One of the most common questions that students ask me is:
"How Can I Speak English More Like A Native Speaker?"
Marcos from Brazil writes:
"I translate in my head from my native language to English. but then my sentences are not correct, or not natural.
Can you help me solve this problem?"
Well, one thing that can really help you speak more fluently is learning collocations.
What Are Collocations?
Collocations are the typical or common combinations of words we use together.
Here are some simple examples:
take a picture
do a picture
make a picture
a quick shower
a fast shower
When you make mistakes with collocations, the other person will usually understand you - but your English won't sound "natural" - because it's different from the way a native speaker would say it.
So if you want to improve your fluency and talk more like a native English speaker, you'll love the new e-book:
This book will teach you typical collocations, organized into 50 topics.
There's no need to spend hours trying to memorize long lists of words and phrases. Each lesson takes just 10 minutes:
5 minutes to listen to and read the lesson
5 minutes to do the quiz and practice the expressions you learned
It makes it easy for you to improve your English every day, even if you have little time to study.
