What's the difference between a student who feels *completely lost* during conversations in English and a student who understands most of what is said AND can reply with clear, correct answers?

Do they spend hours studying every day?


Did they learn all the vocabulary before they started speaking?


Do they have an unusual talent for languages?


Did they move to an English-speaking country?


Although these things might help, they're not the answer.

Myths about B1

Myth: "It's an enormous jump from a basic level to an intermediate level."

Reality: The jump from A2 to B1 is actually not very difficult!

At A2, you already have a pre-intermediate base, with some essential vocabulary, grammar structures and the ability to have conversations. These foundations make it easy to move to a B1 and they help you become a more independent language learner!

Although it is a small jump, reaching B1 intermediate level is still an important milestone. At this level, you will be comfortable in real-life situations and you'll have better conversations. Your language skills will be more practical and useful!

Myth: "To get to B1, you just need to talk as much as you can."

Reality: Of course, speaking practice is very important for language learning, but it's really not that simple!

Just talking to people isn't enough to improve your grammar, so that you can speak correctly and accurately. When we speak without any guidance, we often translate from our native language, and we don't realise that we are making mistakes.

It is very difficult to stop translating word for word when your only knowledge of grammar is from your first language, and you don't have a solid base in English.

It's so important to have a foundation in grammar before you can "just talk" and "not translate."

Starting with the basics and slowly building up to more complex grammar is the most effective way.

And if we fix these mistakes at a B1 level, before they become habits, our language base will be stronger, and we will feel much more prepared going into B2 (and on to C1 or even C2).

We can help you ...

  • Understand English grammar with clear explanations.
  • Have a clear step-by step plan about exactly what to study next.
  • Remember everything using a study system that has been proven by 100 years of science.
  • Feel like you're finally making the kind of progress you want.

The Ultimate B1 Grammar Course

An online course that gives you the solid base that all students need.

I've spent the last twenty years working with:

  • Students who want to be able to have group conversations with native speakers.
  • Students who feel scared writing emails that need to be in sophisticated English, even though they're highly educated in their own language.
  • Students who don't feel like they can express their real selves in English.
  • Students who worry about making mistakes in English and offending someone!
  • Students who know that speaking correct, elegant English is absolutely worth it and who want to finally make serious progress.

The result:

An easy-to-follow complete grammar system that gives you a clear, systematic map for understanding, remembering and using B1-level grammar when you speak and write, so you can express yourself clearly, and get your English to an upper-intermediate level.

What's inside the Ultimate B1 Grammar Course?

1: The clearest video explanations on the web

This is how the B1 grammar course helps you to speak correct, elegant English.

Students sometimes have problems with grammar because it's not clearly explained.

After watching the Ultimate A2 Grammar Course videos, you'll be able to understand all the A2 grammar and you'll see how it fits together as a system.

Here's how it works:

  • Very simple, clear explanations. I'll explain all the grammar you need for B1 step by step. Then I'll show you how it all links together. We cover absolutely everything you need.
  • Short videos. The videos are really short so that you can fit them easily into your life. We don't waste time with things you don't need.
  • Subtitles + PDFs. If you prefer to print out the explanations, you can do that too. Everything is printable and downloadable.

2: All the practice you'll ever need

Now you've understood all the B1 grammar, you're ready to go on to upper intermediate!

However, it's important to really practise what you've learned properly. If we don't, our human brains will forget everything!

Here is where you'll use *powerful learning techniques* to memorise the new grammar so that you can remember it properly. This is how to 'feel' your grammar is correct.

Here's how it works:

  • Interactive exercises after every video. These help you fix the grammar in your head immediately.
  • Review exercises at the end of each section. These exercises mix everything that you've learned. This makes it a little bit more difficult!
  • Flashcards and extra reviews. Flashcards and extra reviews are our secret magic! They allow you to remember 95% of what you study forever and give you a deep feeling for correct grammar.

3: Seventeen modules covering all the B1 grammar

We cover everything you need in depth.

The modules are:

  1. Present simple/present continuous/past simple/future simple
  2. Present perfect and present perfect continuous
  3. Past continuous and future in the past
  4. Future continuous/present perfect continuous/past perfect
  5. Questions and short answers
  6. Verb patterns
  7. Nouns
  8. Determiners
  9. The passive
  10. Reported speech
  11. Modal verbs
  12. Relative clauses
  13. Pronouns
  14. Conditionals
  15. Adjectives
  16. Adverbs

Here's how it works:

  • We cover everything you need for B1. We go into detail about all the grammar concepts you'll need.
  • Everything is clearly organised. The course acts as a map to the grammar at this level.
  • We don't just review easy concepts. A lot of B1 books repeat the basic concepts that you see in A2, such as the present simple or articles. Our course helps you build intermediate structures that really challenge you.
