This course teaches you English as a foreign language. Starting from a few basic words, we then work though the structures of the language step by step, learning new grammar and vocabulary as we go. We pay close attention to pronunciation, and make use of the IPA (International Phonetic Alphabet) to help us with this. The course is taught by a British English native speaker. But, because English is an international language, we will listen to various accents throughout the course.
Every lesson comes with a video and various activities and games to help you practice the language being taught. You can also watch a video of the lesson actually being taught to a real student.
You can study the course independently, or you can join one of our online courses and benefit from having your own teacher and practising the language with other students around the world.
My name is Robert Moyse. I am the creator and teacher of this Essential English course. I have been teaching English as a foreign language since 2007, when I was working at language schools in Oxford, UK. I have a first degree in Language Studies and a Diploma in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
In 2010, I started my own language school, Swindon School of English and this continues to the present day. Over this time, we have taught English to students from all over the world in group and individual classes, both face to face and online.
