Welcome to EU English!
Would you like to know how to learn English really well? Are you busy preparing an exam in English? Are you one of those people who don’t have a lot of time to study English?
If you answered yes to any one of these questions, then this program is for you!
What’s the secret to learning English successfully?
The secret to learning a language successfully is very simple, but not always easy to do! If you want to speak English really well, you must make sure that you do something in English every day. You can read a short article, a book, a magazine, you can watch a TV show, a movie trailer or an interview, you can listen to your favorite songs or even do a workout program. One way or another English should become a part of your everyday life. When that happens, you’ll notice a gradual change in your English for the better, and you will soon feel more and more confident and happy to have it in your life.
How to make time for learning?
We both speak several languages and we know how hard it is to find time to fit a new language into your daily routine. That’s why we developed this program, so we can help you do just that.
We offer a wide range of interesting activities in English that will easily fit into your day. To save you time, we developed language exercises around activities that you would probably do anyway. For example, if you read the news every day, why not build your vocabulary by reading the headlines with us every day? If you are into fitness and sports, why not do your workout AND learn the words and expressions related to body parts and movements with us? And, if you like movies,TV shows and songs, why not watch them AND do a few language activities with us at the same time?
Learning English can be lots of fun, but it is also hard work. If you want to be successful, you need to work hard and be prepared to keep up the good work! So making learning more fun and fitting it into your day are two things that are key to your success!
