Spelling

English has a simple grammar but a complex vocabulary and an almost insane spelling system which drives even native English speakers crazy. This course gives you the chance to test your ability to spell the 183 most difficult to spell English words in a series of short challenges giving you 10 of the words each time you take a challenge. Listen to me speak the words and then spell them if you can. The faster you spell each word accurately, the higher you will get on the leader boards below the lessons.

A Phonetic Aesop

Aesop’s Fables have been retold numerous times and added to over the centuries, and many of the fables’ morals have become so well known that they have become part of the English language. The lessons in this course are based on a 1919 version of Aesop’s Fables chosen because the language is suitable for learners of English yet is rich and varied enough to cover all aspects of British English pronunciation when coupled with the British English phonetic transcripts. Translated into British English IPA transcripts, these phonetic Aesop lessons will help students improve their pronunciation and teachers of English as a second or foreign language who want to work on pronunciation in the classroom.

Most Common Words

Developing your vocabulary is one of the most essential things you can do if you are to really improve your English skills. I have created a database of over 4,000 of the most common English words to help you expand your vocabulary. If you learn these 4,015 British English words, you will be able to understand 90% of normal, everyday conversations in British English, as well as most written media such as newspapers, magazines, and Internet articles. There are several ways to learn these words in the Britlish Library and you will find them in this course.

Body Idioms

I originally thought that I would find 100 to 200 idioms related to the body, but as I continued gathering the idioms for each part of the body, I realised there were going to be considerably more. With an ever-growing list of idioms before me, I despaired of ever being able to complete the definitions and examples that would be required for each one. However, with a bit of elbow grease, I put my back into it, and managed to complete all 522 of them. In this course, you will find many of the idiomatic expressions related to the body.
