Don’t give up on English training because the lessons aren’t interesting.

This course was carefully designed by an experienced teacher (Me!) to be interesting and useful. Improve your English quickly.

  • Don’t just read lists (NOT helpful) - Learn with natural English sentences (The way native speakers learn)

    Learn full sentences that you can use in your own conversation. Not just lists and grammar rules. The grammar is inside the real examples.

  • Improve listening and pronunciation easily with real English audio in every unit

    Each Unit has natural audio for listening practice - Listen and review as many times as you like.

  • Costs less than half of most one-hour private lessons

    A private 60-minute lesson with me is $60 (and it’s amazing) but I’m limited by time and space. English conversation schools here in Tokyo cost the same, or more, plus extra fees for signing up, buying textbooks, etc.

Complete the course, do the quizzes, and feel confident

​5 Simple English Communication Tips

The reviews below are from the E-book version - Before I upgraded these lessons to this amazing Online course!

Acho que as falantes de diferentes línguas enfrentam variados graus de dificuldade no aprendizado da língua inglesa, de acordo com a correlação entre suas línguas e Inglês. Dito isso, este e-book endereça, na minha opinião, alguns pontos universais que cada um de nós terá dificuldade para lidar em algum momento. As explicações naturais os tornam tão claros que podemos nos pegar perguntando como tínhamos dúvida em primeiro lugar. Recomendado!

I think people with different native languages will face varying degrees of difficulty according to the correlation between their languages and English. That said, Dave's e-book targets, in my opinion, some of those universal points every one of us will have a hard time dealing with at some time. The natural explanations make them very clear. Recommended!

大人が英語を"勉強" すると、英文の文法や構造を考えるあまり文法的には正しいけれど自然でない表現になりがち。わかりやすい英語表現への手助けをしてくれるとても実用的なebookです。

When we 'study' English we tend to focus on its grammar and structure. This can make it difficult to make and use natural expressions. This e-book helps you to learn English practically and use natural and clear English expressions

Это не очередной учебник со скучной теорией и упражнениями, а подборка практических советов, которые вы начнете использовать в разговорном и письменном английском уже сегодня. За кажущейся простотой затрагиваемых тем, кроются такие же простые, базовые и часто встречающиеся ошибки в употреблении английского, которые легко могут войти в привычку. Избежать последнего и позволит это руководство.

It's not just another textbook with boring theory and exercises, but a set of practical tips which you will use in spoken and written English right away. Simple topics are covered and some common English mistakes are explained too. This e-book will help you avoid making those mistakes now before they become habits.

아주 간단하지만 영어회하 중에 잘 실수 할 수 있는 것들을 알기 쉽게 설명 해줍니다. 그리고 유용한 예를 통해서 연습을 할 수 있어서 다시한번 이해하고 익힐 수 있습니다. 싱가폴에서 일을 할 예정인 저는 이 자료는 비지니스 영어를 배우기 위해 유용한 자료로 사용하고.

It`s all about simple things that English learners can mistake easily in English conversation. I could understand the points and practice well with very useful examples. I've been using this material to learn business English. I`m going to work in Singapore and I`m sure that it will be very helpful.

例句都非常实用,既能联系句型,语法,又能练习听力和口语。非常棒。 书中讲的都是非常容易搞混的用法,解释简单明了,又有练习。 所以多看几遍就自然而然地掌握了。很值。

The example sentences are very useful. Your English grammar and listening will progress via this book and audio. It's great. The grammar contained is some that confuses many people, but the explanations are easy to understand and there are some exercises too. I read through for 3 or 4 times, and I could use the points more naturally.

Dave Stinson

I moved to Japan in 2006 to study martial arts. I have experience teaching - I ran my own dojo (martial arts school) in Canada - but I was new to teaching English.

I have learned A LOT about teaching since then!

I have had the chance to teach at public and private schools, companies, hospitals and more.

This course is made of 5 quick tips that will help you sound like a native speaker.

These lessons have helped many of my private students over the years and I'm sure they can help you too :)
