English Listening Course: Weak Forms Part 1
Prepositions, Articles and Conjunctions
Do you feel frustrated when listening to British native speakers?
Do you worry about getting into conversations in English in case you can’t understand the reply?
Do you lose your confidence chatting to British native speakers because you can’t keep up with the speed of the conversations?
Do you want to experience what it is like to work with me on boosting your listening skills? But you don’t have the time to commit to a 90 day programme?
Then this is for you.
Don’t worry, I have received quite a few emails asking if I will split the larger 90 day programme into three separate courses.
Yes, I can do that – and here is Part 1
Is this training programme for you?
This is for students who don’t want to commit to the longer 90 day programme. I understand that if you have never worked with me before you may want to join for one month to see how this works. I would also recommend you read the testimonials from previous students to see what they have to say about this course.
Look at what previous students have said:
Helen’s course is nothing like a traditional English course, in fact you’ll be guided through natural speech until your ears get trained to those unstressed little sounds, contractions and reductions that are hard to catch. You’ll be on your way to understanding the secrets of spoken English and make progress in no time.
My name is Marco , and I’m an Italian man , perhaps not so young, and I’d like to suggest to you all English learners to take part in Helen’s courses; I know that Helen’s way of teaching how to comprehend her fellow countrymen and countrywomen is the right path that can make the real difference…and believe me I’ve tested it many times during my trips to England and Sheffield…. Too often us students tend to underestimate an important aspect of our learning journey , the listening skill , but when we are in a real English speaking country , we find some difficulties to catch and understand what they’re asking or saying to us…….and we make a pretence that we’ve understood what they’ve said to us….Participating to Helen’s course is a great opportunity to not miss , if you want to make an important step forward in your real English listening skills.
Do you want to understand real English? I recommend this course with Helen. She gives you tips how to teach our ears to understand how native speakers speak to each other. I had never done this before but it really works.
Join the Weak Forms Part 1 (Prepositions, Articles and Conjunctions) Programme
Part 1 Prepositions, articles and conjunctions
with listening training to how they really sound.
What you get:
An online course with over 12 lessons. The lessons have sound files you can pause, rewind and repeat.
Each lesson has explanations and sound recordings with 5 – 10 listening training sound files per word to train your ears to hear the word in connected speech.
Each word has a worksheet and listening exercise so you can test yourself and see how you are improving.
After each section, there are extended listening lessons. These are sound files from real-life-like situations in cafes, bars, train stations to check you can hear the words now that you know how they really sound in real everyday spoken English.
These longer sound files can be downloaded so that you can listen to them repeatedly on your phone or another device. There are transcripts you can download as well if needed. There are also lists and sound files of all the colloquial expressions used in each lesson.
A private Facebook group for course members
As well as the online course you get access to a private facebook group where you can ask questions for me to answer. You can participate in the challenges after each lesson. And if you want feedback on your speaking using these weak forms you can post sound files and get feedback on your own pronunciation.
The Facebook group has weekly office hours. These are guaranteed times I am in the group live to answer your questions and give you feedback.
This is not just an online course in which you work alone online. It is a personalised programme. You will have a lot of access to me, to ask me questions, to give me feedback after each lesson. AND for me to give you feedback on your progress.
At the end of the programme you will be much more confident when listening to British native speakers. The everyday colloquial expressions used in social situations will be familiar to you. The transformation when you can join in a conversation and keep up with the speed of the chat is amazing. You can join in social activities and enjoy British social life.
Do you have any questions?
How long do I have access to the online course?
You will get lifetime access to this course. This means you get access to new lessons and listening trainings every time the course is released. The number of resources will grow each year as the programme runs and develops.
Who is this programme for?
Weak Forms Part 1 (Prepositions, Articles and Conjunctions) is for non-native English speakers who are at an intermediate to advanced level. If you are not sure if your level is high enough contact me and we can talk about it over skype. If you can understand me talking in my Teacher Voice then this course is for you. The programme will train your ears to understand the Everyday Voice I use with my family and friends.
When does this programme start?
This programme will begin in the second week of January.
