This course, Idioms Usage, Pronunciation and Intonation, will teach you to hear, understand, and use English phrasal verbs, idioms, and collocations. It will also help improve your intonation and pronunciation through a practice called "shadowing".
This is a complete course, approximately the equivalent of what you would learn in a college-level speaking and listening class over the course of a semester (10-15 weeks). We will complete 13 lessons, each covering about a dozen expressions taken from the textbook Essential Idioms in English: Phrasal Verbs and Collocations (fifth edition) by Robert J. Dixson (ISBN 0-13-141176-4). While the textbook is not required, it is highly recommended. Each lesson includes:
* A video lesson
*Text exercises and answers (also on video)
*A sentence scramble exercise and answers (also on video)
*A dictation exercise and answers (also on video)
*A shadowing exercise on video
*A lesson test and answers
If you want to understand the English around you, the English that is spoken every day, in every interaction, and you want to USE the English that will allow you to sound more natural and connected to the language, this is the course for you!
This course includes about 10 hours of video which are broken down into sections so that you can study at your own pace.
Included in this course is a very complete course pack that will allow you to practice what you learn in the lessons. And, it's free!
Don't let idioms "hold you back"! "Jump in" and "get to it" "right away"!
