English Lessons in Adelaide

Did you know that the most common letter in English is "e"? It’s almost impossible to find a sentence without the letter, yet Ernest Wright managed to write a 50,000-word novel without a single “e” in sight! Would you like to read this miraculous work in its original language? Contact us at Listen & Learn today and our instructors will help you become proficient in a short time. It won’t be the only book you will be able to read with your new skills; almost 304,000 books are published in English every year, so acquiring the language will give you access to endless hours of entertainment!

Also, learning English in Adelaide will not only be useful to read books, but you’ll also be able to communicate with the 1.5 billion people who speak English as a first or second language in the world. And almost 20,000 of them live in Adelaide and are monolingual speakers, meaning that if you plan to move there, do business with companies based in Adelaide or travel to the city on holiday, learning English is a smart move.

Contact us today and you’ll realise that taking an online English course is not as challenging as it might seem. For example, English is a gender-neutral language, meaning you can always be sure you won’t mess up a word’s gender simply because there is none!

California Dreaming- The Mamas and the Papas

California Dreaming is a popular American song from the 1960s you can use to take your listening skills and English vocabulary to the next level, especially if you are a beginner. For example, you will learn vocabulary about the weather and the seasons (“cold winter’s day”, “scorching hot”, “windy”) and colours (brown, grey, red), as the poetic persona expresses his longing for the warmth of California’s weather. Also, the singer pronounces very clearly and the song is relatively slow-paced, making it a great resource to practise your listening comprehension skills and even sing along to via karaoke!
