About this course
This course is jam packed! First you will understand the fundamental differences between American and British English and as a consequence this will help you understand both better.
We’re going to reflect on our own experiences & do a lot of comprehension practice (from both the UK and the USA). We’ll also learn how to improve our receptive listening skills.
We’ll then read an article together full of native-level rich vocabulary. We then have lots of fun listening practice from various TV series, with clips from Breaking Bad, Desperate Housewives, Fleabag and more, so you experience real English in a meaningful way.
What you will learn
- Main differences between these variations: lexical, phonetic, grammar and spelling
- How being aware of these differences can improve your comprehension
- Self study method: receptive listening
- Vocabulary from clips from various TV series
- New vocabulary from comprehension boost and article
