Learn with me

Let me help you understand spoken English

Working with me can help you

  • Understand conversational English without translating
  • Be understood better when you speak English.
  • Improve your English pronunciation: stress, rhythm, intonation.
  • Understand different accents.
  • Learn “spoken” English vocabulary and grammar.
  • Learn how to listen independently.
  • Find resources online for developing your listening skills.

Also, when you choose to learn with me you become a Very Important Listener (VIL) on my email list. That means you’ll get extra, free goodies in my weekly email that no-one else has access to like:

  • PDF versions of my blog posts
  • PDF versions of my podcast show notes and activities
  • Invitations to VIL-only live lessons every few months

You’ll receive these freebies no matter how much or how little you spend. As long as you’re subscribed, you’ll get them every week.

Film Fortnight

Film Fortnight

Are you a movie fan? Would you love to watch entire films in English? Watching a whole 2-hour film can be intimidating.

Join me to watch 10 clips from 3 of my favourite films and learn how to understand them. You’ll also get access to the Leo Listening Level Test as a bonus (value 5€).

What you’ll get from Film Fortnight

Facebook live

I’ll be going live on Facebook every day from the 9th to the 20th of January. I’ll go over the exercises and answer all of your questions about that day’s clip.

A calendar to get organised
