Students study textbook English for years, and they still have problems communicating with native English speakers.


Here’s the problem…

  • English has 25,000 idioms
  • Phrasal verbs are used daily, but have confusing grammar
  • There is internet slang, work slang, and regional slang
  • Slang changes all the time


Even students with A LOT of motivation can get lost and frustrated about what their learning. 


  • They are using textbooks with old information
  • They don't know which words or phrases to focus on
  • They don't know which words or phrases are used most commonly
  • They hear a phrase in a movie and they think it is appropriate for the office
  • They learn an idioms that no one uses anymore
