How it Works
Each question is divided into three parts. You will first hear the question read, then the short answer, and then a longer explanation of the topic. The longer explanation has built-in definitions of new terms and phrases, so you will understand it just by listening.
You will listen to the question-answer-explanation first at a slow speed, and then again at a normal rate of speech (fast). In this course, you encounter the important key vocabulary several times throughout the course, helping you really understand the meaning of the terms and expressions, and how to use them correctly.
