What is the course about?
This course will help you learn and practise the grammar you need to communicate in everyday life. You will learn the grammar you need to talk and write about things that happen all the time, things are taking place now and things that were in the past and are finished.

What will we cover?
• speaking and writing about life in general using present simple
• speaking and writing about activities taking place now using present continuous
• speaking and writing about past finished events using past simple
• asking and answering questions about everyday topics happening now, in the past and in general – using 'do', 'does', 'did', 'is', 'are', 'am' correctly
