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.
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,

ESL for Massage Therapy
Pronunciation of the Major Muscles of the Body
Created by ESL Work Ready - Get that Job - English for the Workplace
Students: 13360, Price: Free
In massage therapy, building a strong, caring professional relationship with your clients is very important. In fact many will say it is all important, because it means you provide good quality service and you understand the needs of your clients.
To build this relationship it is important that your clients trust you. That they trust your work, that you give a good massage, and that they understand that you know about their body.
One excellent way to show how much you know about their body is to talk to them about the muscles while you are working on them.
This course is designed to help you to be able to practice those specific terms, the names of the muscles, so that you can use them in your clinic. While you talk to your client about the muscles they will learn more about themselves and they will learn to trust you more.
When you have a good relationship with your client, it will help build your business as they are more likely to come back to you and they will refer their friends.

Introduction to Teaching English Phonology
Practical Ways of Improving English Pronunciation
Created by Shane Training Centre - EFL/ESL Teacher Training
Students: 281, Price: Free
Pronunciation teaching consists of both speaking and listening: learners need to practice hearing the sound/word etc as well as producing it. Teachers can opt for a variety of ways to teach pronunciation but the easiest is integrating into the language being taught and practiced. This course covers why teaching pronunciation is important, what it is and how to do it in a fun, interactive, communicative way that will aid learner motivation, engagement and retention.
Research shows that a combination approach of implicit (drilling) and explicit (talking about or eliciting what is happening from the learners) is the best approach to teaching pronunciation especially in adult classes. Phonology is a skill that needs regular practice both for the teacher and learner.
For learners the spelling (orthography) of English is unhelpful when it comes to pronunciation. Teachers should be aware of the sounds to help learners and encourage them to be more independent in their studies. It is easier to help learners with difficult sounds if the teacher understands the sound and how it is formed themselves.
We will be using the International Phonemic Alphabet (IPA) for standard British English which has 44 symbols. The phonemic symbols and the examples given relate to RP (Received Pronunciation) English or Southern British Standard (SBS), on the assumption it is widely accepted as a standard model, certainly in Britain. It is well described in literature and useful for teachers of English and is used in a number of pronunciation dictionaries.
This is not to suggest other varieties of English are inappropriate or “wrong”, teachers should teach their variety of English but be able to point out to learners where their accent differs from standard.
The course also covers a few activities you might like to try with your learners to make phonology enjoyable.
Sanskrit Transliteration & Pronunciation
Learn to read and pronounce Sanskrit written in English script
Created by Tomer Weiss - Therapist & Instructor
Students: 192, Price: Free
In this course you will learn how to read and pronounce Sanskrit written in English script.
Sanskrit is the ancient language in which the Hindu and yogic texts were written in. Sanskrit uses an alphabet of 50+ letters, while in English we only have 26 letters. When Sanskrit is written in Latin symbols, i.e. in English letters there are some special ways of writing all the letters that are beyond the English 26 alphabet letters permit us. This is called transliteration.
When you encounter Sanskrit words like: Śīrṣāsana, or Ājñā how are they pronounced? The first will sound something like ‘Shirshasana’, and the second like ‘Agya’.
How would you read this mantra then?
oṃ tryámbakaṃ yajāmahe sughandhíṃ puṣṭivardhánam
urvārukam iva bandhánān mṛtyor mukṣīya māmṛtāt
To learn how to properly pronounce these mantras we need to learn how to read all these signs. In this free course I will teach you how to read this Sanskrit transliterations (Sanskrit Written in English Letters), As well as how to properly pronounce it.
