How to speak like a native speaker and understand a variety of different American English speakers
Over 500 vocabulary words in context

Learn to understand native English speakers from the US by learning how they really talk! 

Have you tried all the apps and textbooks but still have problems with everyday conversations in English?

It’s time to change your focus.

Do you feel “stuck” with your English? Maybe you’ve almost given up because…

  • You’re overwhelmed with the amount of vocabulary (phrasal verbs, idioms, and expressions) you need to learn and don’t know where to begin.

  • You feel like you translate in your head instead of thinking in English.

  • You don’t feel comfortable speaking with English speakers and you often have to ask them to repeat themselves.

  • Despite all your efforts, your English isn’t getting any better.

As a certified English teacher who specializes in teaching intermediate level students, I’m here to tell you that it’s not your fault. You just need something real!

The way to quickly take your English from an intermediate to an advanced level is by consistently listening to real native speakers talking about common topics that are relevant to our lives.

You also need to take the vocabulary you hear from real people, study it, and learn to use it in context. No translations!

Think about it, how did you learn your native language?

You learned it naturally, from real people: without translating, without textbooks, without apps!
