This course is for you if you learnt some English at school or if you want to review the basics. Coffee Break English can help you improve your accuracy and understanding of English, to prepare you for many situations like using English at work, visiting an English-speaking country, taking exams, or talking with English-speaking friends.

In each episode of the audio lessons, one of our colleagues from an English-speaking country tells us about an aspect of life or culture in their country. In season two, we will hear from our colleagues in the USA, the UK, Canada and Australia, and we will hear new voices from South Africa, Ireland and the Caribbean.
Mark and Josie guide you through the text, explaining the language and helping you understand it better. Each text focuses on a specific language point, including tenses, prepositions, phrasal verbs, and much more.
In addition to the main audio lesson, the course contains lesson notes, which explain the language in the lesson in more detail and provide a transcript of the text; practice exercises; a video version of the lesson; bonus audio episodes; and vocabulary lists in many different languages.
Coffee Break English is presented in English, to give you lots of practice, but we also provide a vocabulary list for each lesson in lots of languages, to give you a little extra help. If you speak Arabic, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese, Russian or Spanish, we have a vocabulary list for you.
