Online course Expressions15 week days€48,- incl.
No matter how good your level of English is, sayings remain a tricky subject. You have your own set of Dutch expressions and would like only those to be replaced by their English equivalent and not learn a random lot. Next point is the time issue; 'busy' is often an understatement during your working day. Sounds familiar?
Then I would like to invite you to opt for this 3 week online training, with the expressions of your choice. Based on research into foreign language learning and how your brain responds, it is presented in such a way that you'll only spent up to 10 minutes a day working on it. You can do it during lunch or when you need a small break. The time investment is little but it will generate big results. Curious? Why don't you give it a try?
