It's also suitable for you if:

You want to take steps to start advancing your level of English.
You want to have the opportunity to write some things.
I have designed the course to give you practical strategies to build your knowledge and give you the tools and methods that work. Over 10 days you'll receive a new lesson every second day which will help you to:
Refine your reading fluency
Nail your active listening
Express your opinion
Write killer emails and proposals
Build your business vocabulary
In the course, you'll receive everything you need in a template to complete the lessons. I love to be organised so if you do too, you'll love my templates. You can choose - Google sheets, Excel spreadsheet or PDF.
You complete the lessons by watching the lesson videos, reading articles and listening to interesting audio about topics related to your industry. No more boring grammar activities, no more learning the unnecessary things that don't help to get you where you need to advance your career.

KIND REVIEWS ABOUT THE COURSE
"I came across this 5-lesson free course when I was looking for some inspiration as a teacher and a translator. It helped me to develop my vocabulary because I usually don´t work with architecture as a topic. The course is very well structured and brings a lot of food for thought, especially to think about miscommunication, understanding which can help a lot of students. It also provided me with helpful tips and tools both for improving my English (building vocabulary, podcasts) and translating (Reverso in my web browser). Instead of 10 days I ended up doing the course for a month and I am very thankful to Tara, that she still found time and was patient and happy to answer. I much appreciated our chat at the end of the course, Tara is experienced and understands well, what students need to improve and can advise how to do it. Thank you, Tara, you´re a pro!"
