Real English Conversations:
Our conversations are all designed to be in natural settings. These involve daily life conversations between two native English speakers, such as a conversation on “Buying a Car” between Jane and Michael or a conversation on “Going on a night out” between Adam and Lisa.
Native English Audios:
The conversations come with audio recordings. You listen to the audios between native English speakers and familiarise yourself with their English accent. You can also adjust play back speed and listen to these conversations at your own pace. This is of great benefit to help overcome listening issues that you get when watching English movies and programmes or listening to English music.
Our conversations are built around idioms, phrases and slang that is commonly used by native English speakers in everyday life and that non-native English speakers with a good grasp of English can fail to understand. Hundreds of Mini Lessons explain the use of these idioms, phrases, expressions and slang. Some of these expressions have different meanings in different settings and our Mini Lessons aim to cover these.
The quizzes are designed to help your practise what you have learned. On average there are up to 65 vocabulary questions with each conversation so you can get to know how to use all these expressions in different settings. The vocabulary quizzes are designed so that you can attempt them more than once until you are confident that you’ve understood the commonly used English expressions, phrases and idioms.
We use state of the art speech recognition technology to improve your speaking skills. We’ve designed speaking questions for you to practise. Once you’ve spoken into the microphone, you will get an immediate response on your pronunciation, accent and phonetics. This technology is carefully chosen so you can learn to speak English correctly. Speech recognition technology gives you feedback on how to make the right sounds of the words you’re saying and helps you to speak more clearly, so your listeners should never find it challenging to understand your accent.
