Online Learning Practical English Starter

Practical English Starter is the perfect course for absolute beginners, or those needing to re-learn some of the very basics of English. The course focuses on practical, everyday topics like introducing yourself, numbers, shopping, and transport. Those who are willing to study 2-3 hours a week over several months will see a significant improvement in their level and in international exam test scores.

Each lesson offers varied content and task types, and follows a clear and proven learning cycle to build skills systematically. Students are exposed to wide range of every-day topics and accents from around the English-speaking world to help prepare them for travel, or to help them progress to a pre-intermediate level of English and further study.

The levels of listening and reading texts are carefully graded to help build confidence. Short, focused pronunciation and speaking exercises allow learners to record their voice, and focus on the stress and intonation of core vocabulary.

Lessons are broken down into very short modules so they can be completed either on-the-go on a mobile device, or on a PC or tablet. Students can begin a lesson, take a break and simply pick up where they left off. An end-of-lesson test helps consolidate the language learned and provides an immediate benchmark of progress made.

Students who have successfully completed Practical English Starter should progress to Practical English 7 to continue their studies.
