Learning English is an on-line course for mid-level speakers. You can use any computer at your work place, a university library computer, your computer at home, your notebook in the departure business lounge, any computer on holiday, or just relax with a cappuccino in an internet cafe.
Learning English isn't sequential: just choose any topic that interests you today. It's more convenient than conventional learning programmes; more interesting than textbooks, dictionaries, and reference encyclopaedias; and you don't have to commit yourself three times a week, for forty weeks, to evening classes.
Even if you're a natural English speaker, born in England, living in England, and speaking English all the time, it's a great opportunity to refresh your grammar, learn to use English effectively, help your children at school, improve your work options, and to provide for a better future.
The one-off life-time subscription makes an unusual and interesting gift for anyone who wants to improve their English, especially as employers always say that prospective employees have poor language skills. And it costs less than two grammar books and a pocket dictionary.
|LEARNING ENGLISH THE EASY WAY|
Learning English is an on-line interactive multimedia experience, about hundreds of topics, for mid-level speakers. Each part, or module, explains a real-life idea. So, in a familiar and natural way, you'll learn about modern language, grammar, pronunciation, and comprehension.
Learning English is for everyone learning or using English. It works because you learn to say things you want to say, instead of learning grammar forms and then trying to think of things to say that use them.
Learning English isn't a list of phrases, paid for by adverts. It's not grammar help, put on the internet by a language school. It's not a few pages about how to buy food and answer the telephone. It's not an electronic book. And it's not for beginners.
|LEARNING ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE|
Many people, all round the world, start to learn English at school or at college. They often learn more at home, at work, or on holiday, and remember phrases from magazines, television, and films.
But, to learn to read, write, and speak English well, you need to do more: you need to understand how modern English is used in personal, social, and business contexts. Learning from books, audio cassettes, and videos isn't enough. For example, you usually learn simple sentences, such as:
My name is Akira, I'm 26, and I live in Kyoto.
I want two coffees with a little milk, please.
Where is the bus station? Is there a bus to Cambridge?
But, then, when someone talks to you, you don't understand everything, or you can't continue the conversation in an interesting way. So, making friends and building business relationships isn't easy.
An English course in England is always popular and memorable, but many people don't have the time or the money. Also, when the course ends and you fly home, you leave the course, and everything English, in England. With Learning English, it's always with you.
Learning English is unique. For students and teachers, it's a helpful and useful addition to your classes. For training managers, it's a valuable blended resource, supporting your company's English language development strategy.
At college or university, you can develop the skills that you use most. The way you speak and write helps you pass exams, succeed in interviews, teach others, make lifelong friends, and find a rewarding job.
In business, industry, and finance, become more successful, build good relationships, entertain new friends, improve your career opportunities, and make better use of the internet.
As a manager, feel confident about international communication, conferences, multi-national projects, and contracts. And avoid expensive mis-understandings.
If you're a writer, a journalist, a translator, or work in the media, expressive English is vital. Learn to write better business letters, articles, or reports. Understand the language, choose words carefully, use effective punctuation, and avoid grammar mistakes. Your work won't need correcting, wasting valuable lifetime.
English is the international language for business, technology, science, the internet, and travel, and more and more people speak it as a first or second language. So Learning English is your passport to worldwide communication. And, as a by-product, you'll improve your social life and enjoy your holidays more.
It's important to learn from everything you read at Learning English. To help you, we always use a natural style and a modern vocabulary, and write about real people, like you, living a life like yours.
