14-day English language fluency course

You will improve your spoken English in just 2 weeks!

Created by Joel South - ESOL teacher and language coach

Students: 108036, Price:  Free

Are you struggling to speak English?

Have you spent hours learning new words, studying grammar, watching English movies, listening to English music and now you wonder why you can’t use all of this knowledge in a conversation?

Well, here’s your answer!

Speaking English is a skill- just like swimming. Can you learn swimming from a book? No. How about from a movie? No, again. You need to get into the pool and start doing the action. Speaking, like swimming, is an action.

So, the ONLY way to improve your spoken English is to speak.

That’s where this course helps you!

How does this course work?

I have divided this course into 14 days. Each day has a new topic and each topic is divided into 4 short videos.

The first video will introduce 8 words or terms. In this video I will explain the meaning of these words and provide an example of how it can be used in a sentence. At the end, we will review the vocabulary.

In the second video I provide an example speech of the topic. In this video I use the words from video 1 to make a speech. This allows you to see me using the vocabulary.

The third video is the most important video. In this video I give you a chance to make a speech using the vocabulary of the topic. But there is one rule:

  • You can’t say: umm, ahh, enn or any other vocal-filled pause or interjection.


Well, this is a fluency course. If you always need to stop and think about what to say next, then you’re not speaking fluently. If you do break the rule, simply stop and start your speech again.

The final video is a dictation test. Listen to me say the words from the topic and write them down. Then, compare your spelling with the actual spelling of the words.

Can I really improve my spoken English with this course?

I believe you can. I have used this method with literally hundreds of students and have seen my students’ speaking ability improve dramatically.

Why should I choose this course over other courses?


Firstly, it’s free (for the moment) so you have nothing to lose.

Enthusiastic teacher.

Secondly, I think I teach this course in an enthusiastic way and hope that this enthusiasm spreads to you. I believe that if you want to learn anything, you must be enthusiastic or you will simply give up.

There is a finish line that you can see.

By knowing that this course is only 14 days, I hope that it provides you with the feeling that it is short sprint and not a marathon.  

Consistency is key (or king).

It’s much more effective to study a few minutes a day than to study for a few hours once or twice a week. I want English to be your hobby that you enjoy not your habit that you hate. By only studying for a few minutes a day (but doing it every day) it is less likely that you will come to hate learning. 

Remember what you learn.

I believe that quality is more important than quantity. My rule as an ESL/EFL teacher is to teach between 5 to 10 words per 1-hour class. This is because how many words you study is not important. Only how many words you can use is the number that we should care about. I see many students trying to remember 30 or even 50 words a day! But, the sad thing is the next day they may only remember 4 or 5. I will teach you vocabulary in a way that allows you to retain the vocabulary that you learn.

Develop a habit for learning.

Finally, many people say that it takes 2 weeks to develop a habit. I hope this course will provide you with the framework to develop a habit of study. While this is my only course (at the moment) here on Udemy, there are many other fantastic courses on here to study. I hope that you can use this course as a stepping stone for your continued growth.

Sign up now and start speaking right away!

So, if you want to learn to speak English more fluently whilst getting your hands on some useful vocabulary, then why not try my 14-day English language fluency course? You have nothing to lose and you will be very glad you did.

Thank you and see you soon,

What is IBE, or International Business English?

The technology boom of the 21st century has radically transformed business, making the world much smaller and transforming English into a common language for international businesses. As industries and technology continue to evolve, so does English. What’s more, standing out in a crowded market and building consumer trust are harder than ever as consumers have access to more and more options globally. Thus, the need for professionals from all kinds of industries to excel in English is greater than ever.

International Business English (IBE) a specialized series of self-paced single-topic language courses on Udemy designed to help modern international business men and women improve their communication in English markets and countries by improving their command, understanding, and familiarity of modern business English. A basic proficiency in English is assumed in the course. No information is presented in any language other than English.

Each IBE course covers a different topic with the goal of offering students a customized approach where they can pick and choose the topics with which they need help, saving them both time and money over traditional approaches to language. This course, IBE 100, is a FREE introductory course that introduces students to the IBE series of courses as well as the concepts and issues that the course will cover. Specifically, the course briefly introduces four key issues that IBE students struggle with in their use of English:

  • Run-on Sentences
  • Active Vs. Passive Voice
  • Counted Nouns
  • English Articles (a, an, the)

“This is great! I come from a community that uses a combination of Spanish/English and a as a result I never truly learned either language. Writing in Spanish is hard =O but writing in English is Evil! I just finished Clark's lecture on sentence structure and I gotta say I'm impressed! He gave me a great arsenal of ideas, tips and tricks on how to improve my English writing skills along with documents and exercises to better help me understand what he was teaching! The videos are easy to follow and his voice is gentle but engaging so keeping my attention on his lecture wasn't a problem at all!” – Eleazar Olivares

Content and Overview

More than 13 lectures with over 40 minutes of discussion as well as practice exercises, resource materials, and quizzes. The course is designed form the ground up to make understanding the key issues IBE students struggle with easier to identify, understand, and improve. Not only will you become familiar with the IBE course structure, but you’ll sit in on discussions about how business English has and continues to evolve in the 21st century.

You’ll also discover free resources already around you all the time you can use to improve your writing that you may have previously overlooked. This is the ideal course for anyone who learned English either natively or as a second or third language who currently feels their skills are holding them back professionally. The course assumes a normal understanding of the basics of English and focuses specifically on the issues that IBE students often need extra help to overcome.

While it has been created with non-native speakers in mind, it would certainly benefit any native English speakers who wish to brush up on their professional writing skills. All parts of this course are presented in English.

Business English Idioms

Learn common English idioms used in work and business contexts.

Created by Dylan Gates - English Trainer and Coach


Students: 6163, Price: $29.99

Students: 6163, Price:  Paid

You have studied English grammar and have a wide vocabulary. The problem is that you find it difficult to communicate effectively in English at work. Native English speakers use lots of idioms which can be confusing. You might understand the individual words in each idiom, but you don't understand what the expressions actually mean. For example, if your boss tells you that you are working in a 'dog eat dog' industry, what is he trying to tell you? You understand the words but the idiom surely means something else.

Understanding and using English idioms at work will help you express yourself more effectively in your job. Idioms are often used as a short cut, a way to express a concept or idea in a short and memorable way. Humans use idioms to engage their listeners and emphasise their ideas and opinions. If you use idioms, you will be able to express yourself in a more colourful and natural way. 

This course will teach you lots of common English idioms used at work. You'll be able to build rapport with your English-speaking colleagues and clients by using the language they speak.

Each video is about 3 minutes long and gives you a definition and an example of the idiom used in a business context. There are a couple of questions about each idiom. Think about these questions to help you remember the idioms. Finally, idioms are generally fixed expressions - you cannot change the words or the order because that will make the idiom sound strange. At the end of each lesson, you will be asked to decide if the idiom is used correctly or not in an example sentence.

~ André Halbertschlager

"This is an excellent course! I wish I had had this information 45 years ago when I started to look for jobs. There was no internet then so it was mostly learning from mistakes. I am now retired but I do meet young students and I am certainly going to recommend this course to them. However, Gabriel also has a course called Business English Writing. I highly recommend this course as well since it will help to get your writing correct. I have worked in several countries with managers whose native language is not English. Even though they spoke English at least half decent, but their written English was usually terrible. My native language is Swedish and if I can detect English errors and feel embarrassed I do wonder what a native English speaker when getting lousily written emails or letters."
~ Rolf Backström


If you have any interest in succeeding in any of these professional areas, or if you want to climb the career ladder or communicate with any international businesses around the world, then you simply cannot afford to miss this opportunity. This Business English course is at such a high price because it gets you results.

  • Compose properly structured emails
  • Learn most commonly used correspondence phrases
  • Master the necessary formal tone grammar
  • Become competent in essential punctuation rules
  • Avoid embarrassing mistakes that can cost you

    Learn what makes an email formal and informal
  • Writing badly written emails can keep you from getting a promotion, a raise, or a better paying job. Using casual language instead of formal can be very embarrassing and make you look uneducated. And when you leave a bad first impression, it is almost impossible to correct.

    Once you've learned what's in this course, you will be an articulate, well-mannered, knowledgeable, and educated email communicator. Whether you're emailing your bosses, prospective clients, or your friends, you will know exactly how to write it, what to avoid, and what to make sure you do correctly. This will make you stand out from other people sending emails because you will know what most of them do not.

    Contents and Overview

    You will start the course by learning the essential Email Etiquette. Most of these lessons are about issues that are often ignored at the risk of being impolite or annoying to your recipients. The second course section is Email Structure where we will break down the email into its parts and cover everything you need to know about each of those components.

    The following three sections are language related: Vocabulary, Grammar, and Punctuation. These are often those big boring language learning topics. But here, you will learn only those points that are essential when writing good formal as well as informal emails.

    Each section wraps up with a carefully created downloadable cheat sheet and quiz to test your knowledge. I do want you to learn this, and to make sure that you remember what you've learned.

    And once you've completed this course, you will have a new assortment of language tools to give you the advantage at whatever you're setting out to do in your life and business. This will help you build a good reputation, communicate better, and create new opportunities for your career.

    For the price of just a few private lessons you get a comprehensive course that would cost much more in the real world. You get hours of training, quizzes, and downloadable materials. And you get support if you have any further questions. On top of that, you have Udemy's money back guarantee. So you really can't go wrong here. Get started right now!
