How the course works

English for Everyone is designed for people who want to teach themselves the English language. Like all language courses, it covers the core skills: grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Unlike in other courses, the skills are taught and practiced as visually as possible, using images and graphics to help you understand and remember. The best way to learn is to work through the book in order, making full use of the audio available on the website and app. Turn to the practice book at the end of each unit to reinforce your learning with additional exercises.

Unit number The book is divided into units. The unit number helps you keep track of your progress.
Learning points Every unit begins with a summary of the key learning points.
Modules Each unit is broken down into modules, which should be done in order. You can take a break from learning after completing any module.
Language learning Modules with colored backgrounds teach new vocabulary and grammar.
Study these carefully before moving on to the exercises.
Audio support Most modules have supporting audio recordings of native English speakers to help you improve your speaking and listening skills.
Exercises Modules with white backgrounds contain exercises that help you practice your new skills to reinforce learning.
