    #303 The 80/20 of Vocabulary: How to Advance Your English FAST!

    What if I told you that in order for you to improve your English, you need to study less?
    What we mean by that is you need to narrow your focus down to just a few essential topics. There’s so much information on the internet these days about English learning that it can be quite daunting to know which topics to focus on.
    So today we will give you the three fundamental topics that we recommend you focus on. We call it the 80/20 of vocabulary.

The BEST of the best

Thank you guys for this awesome work, when I started to listen your podcast and YouTube videos I have not Idea of any word of English (and I need it every day), in the beginning I had overwhelmed because I don’t catched any word (Did I write it right? Well, I feel like I can say it🤷‍♂️) Little by little I started to understand and today (after 2 years, thanks COVID🤣) I’m sure I get it maybe 90% what you said😅. Every day I recommend you guys a every single person with the urgency of learn the English. I recommend too Learn English with Friends, Real Life English Native Immersion course and obviously Real Life English app. Great job guys, please don't lose the courage to continue teaching.
