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.
