Do you ever hear someone using British English and think, ‘... I’d love to speak like that!’

Who doesn’t enjoy listening to James Bond or Hermione Granger?

OK, so you love British English and how it sounds but hold on…what are the words they are using? This isn’t the English you were taught in school or in your boring old coursebooks.

And the biggest problem: British English vocabulary is everywhere you turn and it sometimes feels like listening to a new language.

From Harry Potter and Bridgerton to Adele and the BBC! They are all using words and phrases you’ve never heard before…..until now.

You know your English is good. But the coursebooks didn’t prepare you for this.

Maybe you’ve only ever studied standard ‘classroom’ English, or perhaps you mostly learnt American English at school. Either way, this might have left you feeling…

Shy to speak to people

Colleagues, friends, neighbours — they all use these words and phrases you don’t understand and it makes every conversation a challenge. Do you pretend you understand and nod along enthusiastically or quickly escape the conversation? And do they expect you to use these words too?

Unable to express yourself fully

There’s so much you want to say. However, when you try to say it, you can’t find the words you want! In your own language you are fine, but in English you struggle to share your thoughts and opinions with the people around you.

Fear of missing out

You are worried you might be missing funny jokes or important cultural references because you don’t know the key words - especially when you’re chatting with the locals or watching British shows. Does everyone else get it except you?

Conscious of how you sound

You’ve been speaking English for years but you worry you still sound like a beginner. You want to break through that infamous intermediate plateau and start using the vocabulary that you see and hear all around you.

What if you could easily use British English vocabulary?

Most English coursebooks only teach standard vocabulary like very simple nouns, adjectives and verbs. And that’s fine for the basics, but you are ready for more! You’ve noticed that Brits use so many cool sounding words and phrases that you’ve never seen in your English classes before.

No wonder all the British people you speak to sound nothing like you were expecting!

If you want to express yourself fully, blend in with the locals and get the most out of life in the UK, you need to do more than learn the basic vocabulary. You need to learn the words, phrases and expressions people ACTUALLY use here.

And that’s where we come in.

MEET YOUR TEACHER

Hi, I’m Teacher Tom – a Londoner, British Pronunciation expert and Chief Eat Sleep Dreamer.

I’ve been a teacher for 17 years, working in Spain, Argentina, Hong Kong, London and online. And if my experience has taught me anything it’s that most teaching methods do not prepare you for the language you actually hear in the homes, offices and streets of the UK.

This funny little island nation is a melting pot of people and cultures, and I’m a big believer in celebrating that. That’s why this course covers all the regional vocabulary differences you’ll find here in the UK. From Cockney rhyming slang to Scottish English words we cover everything so that you can make the most out of every interaction.

(about our online course and book ‘A Really British Guide to English’)

You need this course if…

  • You can understand Teacher Tom but find it difficult to follow your British colleagues, classmates, friends or neighbours when they use British English idioms, slang and everyday expressions.
  • You’re conscious that you aren’t able to express yourself and your personality fully in English because you don’t have the words at your disposal.
  • You want to learn a wide variety of British English vocabulary so you can understand British tv, film, music and conversations more easily.
  • You’re ready to reach a higher level at work, make closer friendships and feel more like yourself when speaking English.

You don’t need this course if…

  • You can easily understand British people in everyday conversation, even when they use regional slang and complex idioms.
  • You aren’t prepared to commit just 10 minutes per day to studying and practising.
  • You would rather take live lessons with a teacher, either in-person or online.
  • You want to learn American English pronunciation rather than British.

Do you have questions?

This is a self-paced course that you can study at your own pace. If you are able to commit 10-15 minutes per day to studying, you will complete it in around 6 weeks. However, we recommend regularly reviewing the content you’ve covered to consolidate your learning.

There is no official deadline to finish the course. However, we advise making time to work through it consistently so you make good progress. You’ll get out what you put in!

Ready to start speaking like a local?

It’s time to go from wondering what people are saying to enjoying every conversation — even if they are using colloquial British words and phrases.

If you're going to invest in your English, you may as well learn it ALL, right?

Are you still on the fence?

We want you to feel 100% happy with your decision to join British Vocabulary Booster. So if you want to chat about whether this course is right for you, send Teacher Tom a message and ask.
