  Enroll in Course

You're an intermediate English speaker.

You understand native speakers when we speak, and it sounds really easy.

But when you speak, you can't find the right words.

Every day, native speakers use modal verbs in common conversational situations. This course will help you use them too.

I know you already learned modal verbs in school, and probably already know the uses.

But this course is about how native English speakers use them in everyday conversation.

And if you're like most English learners, you probably don't use enough modal verbs when you speak, because even if you've studied the uses, you're still unsure.

Do this quiz to see if you can use modal verbs like a native English speaker!

In this course, we will talk about:

  • Getting your ears pierced when you were a child.
  • Going to parties when you were a teenager.
  • Improving your life with self-driving cars.
  • Guessing the use of artifacts from the British Museum.
  • Asking a stranger for directions to the subway station.
  • Politely requesting a reference from your boss.
  • Giving your friend advice about her boyfriend.
  • Making suggestions to a colleague about her career.
  • Regretting something that you purchased.
  • Explaining to someone how to make tea.
  • Talk about the amazing skills that had when you were a child.
  • Possibilities for why your friend is late, and hasn't sent any text messages.
  • When you expect your flight to arrive.
  • Recommend a new restaurant.
  • The strange phrase that native speakers use to thank people for a gift.
  • ...and much more!

These scenarios are part of the a free PDF Activity Book. It contains real-life and fictional scenarios to help you practice.

Don't ignore how powerful modal verbs are to English fluency.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why pay for this course when there are so many free resources on the internet?
I also love free resources on the internet! But the bits and pieces of information on the internet are not structured. If you learn better with a structured step-by-step curriculum and detailed explanations, then free content is probably not enough. Free content usually only gives you the basics. But if you truly want to go deeper into speaking English, paid courses are the way to go.
