The Speaking Challenge

Do you know lots of vocabulary but you always forget it when you need to use it? The Speaking Challenge is designed to solve this problem.

The science tells us that the only way to really learn vocabulary is to use it, and make it personal, and that’s exactly what you will do in the Challenge.

Plus, it teaches you only the most frequent vocabulary in English, so you won’t waste your time learning vocabulary you will never use.

Enjoy the free lesson below and discover how easy it can be to learn and remember the most common words in English.
