Have you ever watched a TV drama or film in English and found it hard to understand? Was it the language and vocabulary that made it difficult? Was it the pace at which it moved along? Was it the accents and the fact that not all native speakers follow the grammatical rules and don’t always fully pronounce words?
Understanding a full length drama in English is not easy and it takes a lot of practice but this course is designed to help someone who has attained a high level of English move on to the next level. This drama is split into 4 parts but you can proceed at your own pace. My advice would be to use the lesson time and time again until you can understand every scene and every spoken word. If you are an advanced speaker and are able to achieve this, you will be well on your way to becoming fluent in English.
