Do you need to learn English—and learn it fast? If so, this is the course for you!
Don't worry if you don't know a lot of English. In these lessons, you'll start with the basics and build your skills step-by-step. Fun activities and games will help you learn the English you need for real-life situations including shopping for clothes and food, job-hunting, and finding a place to live. You'll also learn key words and phrases you can use at school or in social settings, and you'll know the right things to say in a medical emergency.
You'll build grammar and vocabulary skills step-by-step as you go through the course. You'll also improve your listening skills through audio and video activities. By the time you're done, you'll have the skills you need to speak basic English with confidence.

A new session of each course opens each month, allowing you to enroll whenever your busy schedule permits!
How does it work? Once a session starts, two lessons will be released each week, for the six-week duration of your course. You will have access to all previously released lessons until the course ends.
Keep in mind that the interactive discussion area for each lesson automatically closes 2 weeks after each lesson is released, so you’re encouraged to complete each lesson within two weeks of its release.
The Final Exam will be released on the same day as the last lesson. Once the Final Exam has been released, you will have 2 weeks plus 10 days to complete the Final and finish any remaining lessons in your course. No further extensions can be provided beyond these 10 days.
This lesson contrasts the use of the simple present and the present continuous. It also introduces adverbs of frequency (such as always and never) and questions with can (Can I ask you a question?). In addition, you will learn to identify locations and services, give and follow street directions and directions in a mall, leave phone messages, and write a message on a postcard.
