Do you want to learn the informal expressions that native English speakers use in everyday life? This course will teach you 50 idioms and phrases, with clear and easy-to-understand explanations and examples.

The English language has a lot of idiomatic expressions - phrases whose meanings are not obvious from the individual words - such as think outside the box (think creatively) or let the cat out of the bag (reveal a secret).

These expressions can be confusing to English as a Second Language learners, making it harder to understand movies, TV shows, and native speakers' informal conversations.

In this free course, you'll learn 50 idioms & expressions quickly and easily. Each short video explains the phrases and gives examples, and you can check the transcript in order to understand every word!

Welcome to the American English Slang, Idioms and Pronunciation Course. 

Americans can be really hard to understand. 

  • We talk fast. 
  • We use a lot of slang. 
  • We smash several words together making new words.
  • We only pronounce parts of many of the words we use.

This course is designed to teach you the most common slang and idioms that American English speakers use every day. It is also designed to help you to pronounce words without an accent or to reduce your native accent.

The course uses everyday example conversations that are just like what Americans say to each other at work, at school and at home.

This course is perfect for intermediate and advanced English students who are struggling to recognize American accents or to understand Americans when they speak in slang...and Americans use a LOT of slang, don't we?

This course can also benefit a beginning student. You probably won't understand a lot of the words and sentences that I'm using, but you'll learn important sounds and pronunciation and you'll get a lot of practice listening to American English. Listening and practice are the two most important things you need to do to learn English faster.

Here are just some of the words and phrases that you'll learn:

A - All Over the Map, A-game, Ants in Your Pants

B - Blow It, The Blues, Beat, Bail, Bail Out

C - Cool, Couch Potato, Cougar, Cold Shoulder, Canned

D - Dude, Dunno, Down to Earth, Dibs, Drive Me Up the Wall

Toefl made easier

The discussion was on point and raises a lot of ideas which are very useful and handy when taking the exam. The presentation was plain, neat and direct, it was able to deliver maximum results within a manageable period of time. The instructors diagram of how you do the brainstorming and the outline makes writing your ideas a lot easier. I would recommend this to my colleagues who would want to take, not only TOEFL but also IELTS, because I know the techniques will also apply. Good job! Hope to hear more test preparation techniques from you Sir.

ESL for Massage Therapy

Pronunciation of the Major Muscles of the Body

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.

If you want to be fluent in English and sound native, you need to know phrasal verbs well.

There's a ton of information on them, but it's all in tiny pieces spread across grammar books, dictionaries, and various websites.

I spent a year putting this information together and building this course to make phrasal verbs as easy to understand as physically possible. By taking this course you'll save tons of time and the frustration involved in digging for bits and pieces of necessary information.

This course breaks down what phrasal verbs are, why they matter, what kinds of phrasal verbs exist, and what is the best way to learn them.

You will learn 10 of the 1.5% most common phrasal verbs in the English language: what they are, which of their meanings are the most/least common (with the % of their usage and examples), and a variety of exercises to help you cement them in your memory.

This course will give you the NECESSARY knowledge to transform your "good English" into "native English" - as long as you follow all recommendations and do all the exercises provided.

Note that the theoretical part (video) of the course is 40 minutes long, but the activities section is expected to take 5-6 hours. This is because I have created custom exercises for you to practice what is taught in the video.

ESL English: Understand Real English Conversation, Beginning

Popular ESL listening course helps you understand English speakers--from the author of twenty English textbooks! ESL/EFL

If you can't understand what someone says to you in English, you can't have a conversation because you won't know what to say.  This listening class is a must. 

Some may feel that listening comprehension isn't important. It's actually the most important English skill because it's the foundation of your English language ability. It's where excellent English skills begin.

"ESL English" is the "magic sauce" of English listening. In each lesson, you'll enjoy many practice exercises written by Nina Weinstein, the author of twenty English textbooks for major New York publishers, including her bestselling listening book, "Whaddaya Say". "ESL English" is for people who want to have the best English skills. Both the beginning level,"ESL English", and her intermediate listening course, "More ESL English", are in the Udemy for Business program.

Nina Weinstein teaches English to employees of some of the biggest companies in the world; Toyota, Microsoft, Mitsubishi, and others. "ESL English" has many of the lessons that she gives for those companies. Nina has a Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics/Teaching English from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), and she taught her listening program at Harvard University as a teaching fellow. "ESL English", "MORE ESL English", and "(How to get) Your Best English" are Steps 1, 2 and 3 of her popular English listening skills program.

"Easy, natural way to listen to native English speakers. I would absolutely recommend it. Before taking this English course, I went through many English courses, but none of them were as comprehensive as 'ESL English'. It takes you by the hand and teaches you the real secrets to understanding native English speakers. Easy to follow and entertaining. I would absolutely recommend it."  Salvatore Scaniglia

"Exactly what I wanted to learn! I couldn't recognize those English sounds before going through these lessons." Vadim Dzyuban

"This English course helps you a lot on your listening, 5-star recommended."  Sant Cheung

Your teacher will teach changes at the sentence level --sentence blending rules, and  you'll learn how to be more comfortable with the "rhythm" of natural English. You'll learn that there are two kinds of English -- written and spoken. You'll learn what real spoken English is and how to understand it.

After this course, you'll be able to understand English spoken at a natural speed much better. When you can understand the real spoken English around you, you can also improve your English conversation, grammar, vocabulary, and even pronunciation. If you can hear English words more correctly, you can say them correctly. Very important -- You'll get lots of practice exercises with many different English speakers from the real world in each lesson. This practice will help you to test and improve your hearing and understanding of real English speakers in real situations. 

Note:  There are three courses. "ESL English" is the beginning listening course. "MORE ESL English" and            "(How to get) Your Best English" are the intermediate and advanced levels. Please choose the right level for you. For the best results, take the whole listening program, but Nina suggests taking "ESL English" first.

Do you already have a basic knowledge of English, but want to improve your ability to communicate in real-life situations? And do so in a fun, enjoyable way? Then Everyday English for ESL is just the course for you!   

Each lesson begins with a fully-animated dialogue, which presents the vocabulary, grammar, and expressions you need to know in order to communicate successfully in English in a wide range of everyday situations.  

The situations include:  

  • ordering food in a fast food restaurant

  • checking-in at the airport

  • making an appointment on the phone

  • returning goods to a shop

The dialogue is presented with and without speech bubbles, and is followed by:  

  • a listen and repeat activity to help you improve your pronunciation and intonation

  • a listening comprehension passage related to the topic of the lesson

  • a series of questions for you to answer about the lesson topic

An MP3 audio version of the lesson is also available. 

All the audio material has been recorded by professional voice actors with British or American accents, and each lesson comes with a ten-page downloadable PDF, which contains:   

  • a full transcript of the video

  • language notes, explaining key grammar and vocabulary points

  • a word list

  • a series of language exercises

  • a crossword,

  • a word search puzzle

Most of the activities can also be done online, and the extra resources include Quizlet flashcard sets featuring the vocabulary used in each lesson.  

At the end of the course, there’s a Final Quiz, to test what you have learnt. And as a special bonus, you will be able to download a 45-page guide to online English learning resources. 

UPDATE
In March 2021 I added a bonus lesson: My Daily Routine, in which you will learn how to describe your daily routine using the present simple tense and adverbs of frequency. And, of course, the lesson features all the usual resources.

If you are an intermediate English speaker (or higher), these 5 Solutions will help you speak better English now, by teaching you how to solve communication problems in real time so that you are successful in your conversations with natives and abroad, or other day to day interactions by telephone and video conferences.

Solution 1 helps you to understand natives that speak fast.

Solution 2 teaches how to express yourself when you forget or don't know vocabulary. (This always happens speaking a 2nd or 3rd language.)

Natives use phrasal verbs and idioms all the time. You can memorize hundreds, even thousands, of phrasal verbs and idioms, or use Solution 3 to learn them in real time.

Solution 4 is the answer to most people's problems with numbers.

And I’ve included Solution 5 to make sure you get your hotel reservations, emails, and order numbers done correctly the first time.

These 5 Solutions have helped my ESL / EFL English students many many times. (And they have saved me tons of times too in my second and third languages - Spanish and Portuguese.) That’s why I developed this dynamic course.

Plus, there are 2 extra lessons so you can sound like a native when you meet new people and go shopping.

Nina's special English listening program is three classes -- "ESL English" (Beginning), "More ESL English" (Intermediate), and "(How to Get) Your Best English" (Advanced). This course, "More ESL English" is the intermediate level.

If you need to talk with English speakers, you need this listening program first! 

What's the most important skill in English?  If you said, "listening", you're right.  Why?  If we hear, "Book is on table", we'll never say, "THE book is on THE table".  If we don't hear "the", we won't think it's there, and we won't say it. That means our listening ability affects our conversational ability. The best English listeners are also potentially the best English conversationalists.

This is the same English listening course for international learners that Nina produced for major international corporations such as Toyota Motor Sales. There are easy-to-follow captions, and many listening exercises to practice in each lesson. The goal is to begin to prepare you to hear almost every word. If you can't hear what someone says to you, you can't have a conversation with that person, so this is an essential course for any non-native English speaker who works with English speakers.

There are three steps in Nina's English listening program. Step 1 is "ESL English". You should take that course first. This is the Step 2 listening level -- "MORE ESL English".  Step 3 is Nina's listening course, "(How to get) Your Best English".

There are two very different kinds of English -- written and spoken. Speed of speech changes the pronunciation of spoken English.  Basically, the faster native speakers talk, the harder it is to understand them, unless you learn and practice these spoken English pronunciation rules.  Step 1, "ESL English", introduced learners to the most important pronunciation rules of native English speakers (reduced forms). It introduced learners to the rhythm or "music" of English sentences, and many important spoken English pronunciations by real native English speakers. 

                                  In this course, "MORE ESL English", Intermediate -- 

  1. Nina will teach you the next group of important pronunciation changes in natural spoken English. After you practice hearing and understanding English as it's really spoken, you'll be able to understand native English speakers much better.

  2. In the practice exercises, Nina will teach you to begin to hear almost every word.  Why is this important?  We're all connected in the world now. We can study together. Many of us want to work internationally. If you can hear almost every word of English, you can correct your own grammar because you can hear the correct grammar more clearly. You can learn new vocabulary because you can hear the words. Your conversation will be better because at least half of conversation is listening.

  3. You'll get special secrets to quickly sound more like a native English speaker. Finally, you'll take a listening test at the end of the course to show you what your next steps should be.

Nina isn't just teaching you a class. She's staying with you until you learn a skill. When your listening improves, your other English skills can also improve. Nina is available to you anytime, so feel to email her with any questions or problems.

Is your spoken and written English good but not as good as you'd like it to be?

Can people easily tell that you're not a native speaker?

It may not bother you, but if it does, this course will tell you what you can do to sound more natural and native.

I'll outline the main reasons you don't sound native yet and tell you what you need to do to sound more natural.

In the course we’ll go over the following  things:

1. Pronunciation.

You will be able to use linking, informal contractions, and reduction, which will make you sound a lot more like a native speaker.

2. Circumlocution

We’ll figure out why you may want to reconsider the way you phrase your thoughts. This will help you express your ideas in a clear and easy-to-follow way.

3. Number of idioms

I will give you examples of using idioms in a good and bad way. You will understand why this very popular among English learners approach to using idioms, which follows the “the more the better” principle, is often unnecessary, awkward, and unnatural.

4. Articles

You will learn basic and advanced ways of using definite (the) and indefinite (a/an) articles in your speech.

5. Order of words

By using examples I will show you why the order of words in English is inflexible and why it is important that you stick to it.

6. Denotation & connotation

You will learn that words can be neutral, positive, negative, offensive, sexual, etc., and why it is absolutely crucial for you to take this into account when you’re working on expanding your vocabulary.

7. Phrasal verbs

I will point out why phrasal verbs are a challenge worth accepting.

After this course, you will know what you should and what you shouldn't do to get closer to the level of English you've been dreaming about. :)
