Grammar and Pronunciation

Grammar and Pronunciation

The Grammar and Pronunciation course consists of 20 sessions in total. It improves your grammar and pronunciation at the same time. Studying grammar by itself doesn't work. Ask yourself these questions: Do you know the grammar rules but still make mistakes? Have you been learning grammar for years but can't use it when you speak? Focus on the common English sounds in basic tenses and speech parts like the present simple, present continuous, past simple, present perfect, modals, conjunctions, conditionals 1, 2 and 3.
