    Just like when you do exercise in the gym to improve your physical condition, doing pronunciation exercises improves your ability to speak English correctly!

    That's why my American English Pronunciation Course is full of practice. Whatever sounds you find difficult in English, this course will help you improve.

    By listening and repeating the words and sentences aloud, you'll train your mouth to say them clearly.

    If you're not able to join the Pronunciation Course, you can always use my YouTube videos to practice listening and repeating what I say.

    DON'T use a preposition in these 5 situations!

    Prepositions like in, of, at, from, and to are used very frequently in English.

    However, there are some cases in which you SHOULDN'T use one – and in today's lesson, you'll learn 5 times you should not use a preposition.  




    This is one of my top grammar lessons on Espresso English. I hope you enjoy it!
     
    English grammar can certainly be complicated... but I'll make it clear to you when you join my Advanced Grammar Course!

    The 45 lessons in this course will teach you all the verb tenses as well as adjectives, adverbs, prepositions, sentence structure, and other more complex topics.

    You also have the option to practice your writing, and send your texts for feedback and correction by a teacher on the Espresso English team.

    What if you're not yet advanced enough for that course?

    Then I'd recommend joining 200 Common Errors in English. You'll learn how to avoid the most common mistakes in grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, spelling, and learning strategy.

    Learn 36 compound words to expand your vocabulary

    Learn 36 compound words to expand your vocabulary

    Today I'm sending you a special class all about compound words!

    Compound words are when two or more words are put together to form a new word with a new meaning - like notebook, mother-in-law, and post office.

    Sometimes compound words are easy to understand: a bookstore is a store that sells books; a dishwasher is a machine that washes dishes.

    But others might not be so obvious, for example:
    brainstorm – an intense process where you think of many different ideas scapegoat – someone who bears the blame for others In this lesson, you'll learn the meanings of 36 compound words in English.
    If you’d like to continue improving your vocabulary, you’ll really enjoy the Vocabulary Builder Courses at Espresso English.

    Level 1 of the course focuses on essential everyday words for things in daily life, work, study, travel, describing people, describing the world, etc.
     
    Level 2 of the course goes deeper into these subjects and also has lessons on more advanced topics like binomials, metaphors, word roots, and prefixes and suffixes.
     
    You'll learn more than 1,000 words in each level of the Vocabulary Builder!

    My secret for staying motivated with Espresso English

    My secret for staying motivated with Espresso English

    My recent videos were all about staying motivated when learning English...

    ...but what's MY secret to staying motivated when teaching English?

    There are some days when I feel sad, lazy, and discouraged. Sometimes I don't have the energy to prepare new lessons, and I don't want to turn on my video camera. Yes... even your English teacher lacks motivation sometimes!

    But here's how I get motivated again:

    I visit a page on the Espresso English website that you might not know about... it's called "Student Stories."
    Read student stories - and add yours - by clicking here! - https://www.espressoenglish.net/student-stories/
    It has SO MANY wonderful comments from students like you - all talking about how my lessons have helped them and changed their lives.

    When I read these student stories, it always makes me happy - and then I feel motivated and EXCITED to create more lessons and help more students!

    What's amazing about these stories is that there are students from lots of different countries... students of all different ages... students in a variety of jobs and life situations. All have learned and improved with Espresso English, and this is so encouraging to me as a teacher.

    So my secret to staying motivated is... hearing from YOU when you've enjoyed my lessons! Thank you so much to everyone who has sent me nice comments.

    Whether you're one of my long-time students who has followed my lessons for years... or whether you're one of my newer students who recently joined... I always love hearing from you.

    By the way, if you want to add your story to the "student stories" page, you can click here to send it!

    I hope you're having a great week. I'll send you more English lessons soon :-)

    273 - Stay motivated tip #10 - Challenge and reward yourself

    I’m sharing my tenth and final tip for how to stay motivated to learn English. This one is really interesting and fun, and it can really help you keep up your motivation and desire to make more progress in your English. Tip #10 is
    Challenge Yourself, Then Reward Yourself When You Reach Goals
    Sometimes when you’re studying English by yourself, it can be discouraging because there’s nobody to say “Nice work!” or celebrate your successes. But if you give yourself challenges and rewards, it can give you the motivation to keep going and not quit.
