About this module
This course will help you understand the fundamental differences between American and British English and as a consequence help you understand better and acquire new vocabulary.
We’re going to reflect on our own experiences & do a lot of comprehension practice (for both Br and US English). 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 end the module with a vocabulary builder.
