Have a look at what our course can do:
Instead of boring articles and dull conversations, you can, based on your mood and interests, choose stories from detective, adventure, love, horror, and other genres. The basic activity is listening to a text recorded by English speaking native speakers. The listening is easy to control – play the individual sentences or the entire paragraphs, move back or forward, repeat. You can practice your correct pronunciation and improve your vocabulary and grammar in an active manner. The interactive exercises offer pictures, audio, and automatic evaluation including the displaying of the correct answer.
The courses are contextually linked with the English LANGMaster Collins COBUILD Student's Dictionary. The dictionary contains 40,000 definitions and over 30,000 examples of use. Besides the fact that it will help you to find out what each word means, its biggest contribution is that all the headwords including examples of use are recorded by professional native speakers. This makes it an indispensable aid when practicing the correct English pronunciation.
You can enter the words from courses and from the dictionary in your user vocabulary and learn them using the RE-WISE® method. The RE-WISE method will help you to efficiently enhance and strengthen your vocabulary – it continuously monitors your forgetting curve and based on it plans the next revisions.
Collins COBUILD Student's Dictionary
