Meet Alex

Hello everyone! My name is Alexander, but many people call me Alex for short. I would like to tell you how I can help you speak English easily, confidently, automatically and feel absolutely relaxed at the same time. I can help you to speak excellent English because I know how it feels to learn English as a foreign language. I do know how it feels and I do know what it takes to speak English where people around you do not speak English or speak English very little. I know that because I was there. I was like you. I was born in Russia and I grew up in Russia. I myself learned English as a second language. That is why I understand perfectly well your anxiety, your worry and your embarrassment when you need to speak English. I want to help you to become a strong, fantastic and confident English speaker. I have created this Unique English Course – speak real English, because I want you to succeed with English.


If you let me teach you, and if you let me lead you and guide you through this tough, difficult and meandering process of learning English, together we will certainly take your English to a new level of mastering English. I promise you will speak English the way you never did before.


Let me tell you the true story from my childhood.

When I was in third grade, one day a new teacher came into the classroom. Everybody was sitting at their desks, waiting for the teacher.

The teacher asked the class, “Children, what do you want to be, when you grow up?”


The children raised their hands.

“Okay”, said the teacher, and pointed to Jimmy.

Jimmy said, “I want to be a pilot.”

“Very good”, the teacher said.

Then the other boy stood up and said, “I want to be a policeman.”

“That’s great” said the teacher.

And then Carol raised her hand and she said, “I want to be a movie star”

The teacher said, “That’s nice”. Then the teacher looked at me and asked me.

“What about you, Alex? What do you want to be, when you grow up?”

I said, “I want to be a teacher.”

“Why?” he asked.

“I want to help boys and girls to be what they want to be.”


In other words, when I was 10 years old, I already wanted to be of help. I already wanted to be a teacher. I did not know what I was going to teach, but one thing I knew for sure was that I wanted to be a teacher. I wanted to serve others.

As Martin King Junior said, “Not everyone can be famous, but everybody can be great, because greatness is determined by service.”

I decided to teach English, one of the most beautiful languages in the world. I went to University and got my diploma of Candidate of Philological Sciences. Since that time I became a willing student and I became very much interested in how I could help people to speak excellent English all over the globe.

Many years have passed since then, I’ve learned from the best, and I’ve found the method that I am going to share with you in this course. It is a story-telling method – one of the best methods in the world for learning languages.

I became a teacher of English many years ago. But still I am committed to serving people. Still I am excited and curious about what I am doing. Still I am devoted to my calling – to teach you to speak English easily, confidently and automatically.

With love and respect,

Your English teacher

Alex.

How to use the course

My dear friend! My congratulations! Welcome to your Unique English Course – speak real English!

Hello, my superstar student! This is Alex – your English teacher. You are now ready to speak English easily, powerfully and confidently!

In this lesson I will tell you what you should do to start speaking English easily, powerfully and confidently.


How to use the Lessons!

Each lesson Set (Unit) has several different lesson files. All lessons in a Set/ Unit have the same name. These lessons go together. Every day, you will listen to all the lessons in ONE lesson SET or Unit (all the lessons go with the same name). You will listen to only one set for 7 days.


This is very important.

You will only improve your English quickly if you follow this method – one lesson set everyday – the same lessons set every day for 7 days (or more). Slower is better.


How to use texts:


1. First, try to only listen


Don’t use these text transcripts files first. Try to listen to a Story, Vocabulary lesson and a Mini-story without the text. If you understand them, you don’t need the text – just continue to listen.


2. Use these text transcripts only when you don’t understand something.


If you don’t understand part of a Story, vocabulary or a Mini-Story, read the text. This will help you identify vocabulary you might not understand from just listening. Use a dictionary, if necessary, to find unknown words.


3. Read and Listen at the same time, a few times


Once you know all of the words and phrases in a Story, Vocabulary lesson and a Mini-Story, you can listen and read at the same time. Do this a few times only. Every day focus more on answering the questions.


4. Just listen again


Now you just listen to the Mini-story. Don’t read. You know the questions and the answers very well.

Do not focus on reading – focus on listening!

Put the text aside and only listen to the Mini-Stories and answer the questions. These text transcripts can help you, but don’t use them too much.


If you follow the system, you will certainly succeed!

Remember: listening is the key to speaking.


To stay committed to learning English, to remain curious about learning English and to maintain your motivation for learning English, I encourage you to go to my website englishiseasyandfun.ru and you can visit my Instagram page easyenglishshow. There you will find many useful, inspiring and empowering ideas not only for learning English, but also for every day life. Go there and grab it. It is free.

I wish you good luck and every success!

With love and respect,

Your English teacher,

Alex.

She wants to be like Superсat, because Superсat is her heroine.

What does Supercat look like?

Jane wants to walk and talk like Superсat.

And of course, she wants to dress like Superсat.

Every day Jane wears Superсat outfit.


One day Jane is walking along the street. And she sees raccoons robbing a jewelry shop. She runs to the jewelry shop. She catches the raccoons. Suddenly Supercat appears. She helps Jane bring the raccoons to the police station.

Now Supercat and Jane are working together.

Jane understands that she can do good things without having superpower.


This is the end of the story “Supercat”. Listen to this story every day. Listen and enjoy the story.

The next lesson is your vocabulary lesson. See you there.

The Vocabulary Lesson

Hello, my superstar student. This is Alex – your English teacher. Welcome to the vocabulary lesson for “Supercat”.

In this lesson I am going to tell you the same story and I am going to explain some words to help you understand them better. Let’s get started.


There is a cat. Her name is Jane. Jane has blue eyes and she is grey. She wants to be like Superсat, because Superсat is her heroine.

Okay, I will explain the word heroine in a minute. But first I want to talk about to be like. She wants to be like Superсat.


Our first word, our first phrase is to be like. To be like means to be similar something or someone, resembling something or someone.

Jane wants to be like Supercat. It means that Jane wants to resemble Supercat. She wants to be similar to Supercat. Jane wants to be like Supercat, because Supercat is her heroine.


Our next word is a heroine. heroine means a woman who has heroic qualities. In other words, heroine is a woman who is courageous and fearless. Jane wants to have heroic qualities. Jane wants to be courageous and fearless. Jane wants to be like Supercat, because Supercat is her heroine.


Next we see a question – What does Supercat look like?

We usually ask this question when we want to know what is her appearance? What colour are her eyes? What colour is her fur? And so on. What does Supercat look like? What is her appearance? I think you get the idea.


Superсat has super-green eyes and she is purple. Okay, our next word is super-green. Super-green means very very very green. Super-green eyes – very, very, very green eyes. Supercat has super-green eyes. Her eyes are very very very green. Her eyes are super-green.


Jane wants to be just like Supercat. Here we see the phrase just like. Just like – is another way to say look like or is like. Just like Supercat – means Jane wants to look like Supercat. She wants to be exactly like Supercat. She wants to be just like Supercat.


From the story you already know that Jane wants not only look like Supercat, but she also wants to be just like Supercat.

Jane wants to jump and run like Superсat. Jane wants to walk and talk like Superсat. And of course, she wants to dress like Superсat.


Our next word is to dress. Here to dress is a verb. And it means to put on clothes and wear clothes. Jane wants to put on the same clothes like Supercat. She wants to wear clothes like Supercat does. Jane wants to dress like Supercat.

And every day Jane wears Superсat outfit.

Alright, our next word is – outfit. Outfit means a special set of clothes. Supercat outfit is a special set of clothes that Supercat wears. A special set of clothes that she puts on and she wears. Like Superman outfit or Batman outfit or Spiderman outfit. You get the idea, right? Jane wears Supercat outfit every day.


One day Jane is walking along the street. And she sees raccoons robbing a jewelry shop.


Here we have the verb to rob. To rob means to take money or something illegally. Jane sees raccoons taking money and jewelries from the shop illegally.

Our next word is a jewelry shop. Of course, you know what it means, but one more time let me explain it to you. A jewelry shop is a shop where you can buy jewelries. It’s easy. You can go buy things like: rings, bracelets and necklaces. And you can put them on and wear them.


From the story we know what Jane does next, right?

She runs to the jewelry shop. She catches the raccoons. And suddenly Supercat appears. I mean real Supercat appears. She helps Jane bring the raccoons to the police station.


Here I want you to focus on the word to bring. To bring here means to carry or take something or someone to somewhere. In our case, Supercat helps Jane carry the raccoons to the police station. Supercat helps Jane take the raccoons to the police station. Supercat helps Jane bring the raccoons to the police station.


Now Supercat and Jane are working together.

Jane understands that she can do good things without having superpower.


Our last word for today is to do good things. Actually, this is our last expression for this vocabulary lesson do good things. Do good things means to help or to be of use. Jane can help people without having superpower. She can be of use. She can help people to feel safe and peaceful in the town. Jane understands that she can do good things without having superpower. In other words, you don’t need to have superpower to help other people to have happy and peaceful lives.


This is the end of the vocabulary lesson for our first story “Supercat”.

Listen to the vocabulary lesson one or two times a day. It will help you to understand the story better. It will help you to use the words correctly. And it will certainly help you to speak better.

What do you do next? Next you have your bonus lesson, where I tell the same story but in the past tense. Go get it.


Your Bonus Lesson

Hello my superstar English student! This is Alex and this is your bonus lesson. In this lesson I am going to tell you the exact same story but in the past tense. We are going back. Imagine! See in your head it was five years ago. Just listen and enjoy the story!


Five years ago there was a cat. Her name was Jane. Jane had blue eyes and she was grey. She wanted to be like Superсat, because Superсat was her heroine.

What did Supercat look like?

Superсat had super-green eyes and she was purple.


Jane wanted to be just like Superсat.

Jane wanted to jump and run like Superсat.

She wanted to walk and talk like Superсat.

And of course, she wanted to dress like Superсat.

Every day she wore Superсat outfit.


One day Jane was walking along the street. And she saw raccoons robbing a jewelry shop. She ran to the jewelry shop. And she caught the raccoons. Suddenly Supercat appeared. She helped Jane bring the raccoons to the police station. Then Supercat and Jane were working together.

Jane understood that she could do good things without having superpower.

One day all the fishes decide not to talk to Nancy any more. The fishes refuse to talk to her. The fishes pretend not to see her.

Nancy says, “I don’t care. I can do well without you” and she swims away.


Three weeks later Nancy is swimming towards a big, beautiful and fantastic coral reef. She has never been there before. As Nancy swims up to the big beautiful and fantastic coral reef, she sees a lot of fishes of different kinds. They are nice, cheerful and friendly to her. Nancy is thrilled.

But because Nancy is a secret aikido master, Nancy beats the shark. The shark screams and swims away.

All the fishes love Nancy. She becomes the queen of the coral reef. She becomes the sea queen of the coral reef.


This is the end of the story “A Secret”. Listen to this story every day. Listen and enjoy the story. Your next lesson is the vocabulary lesson. See you there.


The Vocabulary Lesson

Hello, my superstar student. This is Alex – your English teacher. It’s me again. Welcome to the vocabulary lesson for “A Secret”. Let’s get started.


There is a fish. And her name is Nancy. Nancy the fish has a secret.

And our first word is a secret. A secret is something that you don’t tell anyone. Usually it is information that you keep from other people. The information you hide from other people.

Nancy the fish has a secret. She has a piece of information that she doesn’t tell anyone. She keeps it a secret. She hides it from other fishes. Nancy the fish has a secret.


All the fishes want to know the secret. But Nancy doesn’t reveal the secret to them.

Our next word is to reveal. To reveal. To reveal means to tell or to show. Nancy doesn’t reveal the secret to them. It means Nancy doesn’t tell the secret. She doesn’t show the secret. Nancy doesn’t reveal the secret to them.


One day all the fishes decide not to talk to Nancy any more. The fishes refuse to talk to her.

And here we have the word to refuse. The fishes refuse to talk to her. To refuse means not to want to do when you are asked to. Nancy asks them to talk to her, but the fishes don’t want to do it. The fishes don’t want to talk to Nancy. The fishes refuse to talk to her.


The fishes pretend not to see her.

Well, pretend, pretend, pretend. This is a very common word in English. To pretend means to make someone believe that something is true, when it is not true.

So all the fishes want to make Nancy believe that they do not see her. Though it is not true, of course. They see her, of course. But they pretend not to see her.

Nancy says, “I don’t care. I can do well without you” and she swims away.

I don’t care. I can do well without you. This all means I am not troubled what you think about me. I can live well without you. I can do well without you. So Nancy the fish says: “I don’t care. I can do well without you.”


Three weeks later Nancy is swimming towards a big, beautiful and fantastic coral reef.

Here we see the word towards. Towards something means in the direction of something. It’s easy, right? Nancy is swimming in the direction of a big, beautiful and fantastic coral reef. Nancy is swimming towards a big, beautiful and fantastic coral reef. I think you get the idea.


She has never been there before, which means it’s her first time there. As Nancy swims up to the big, beautiful and fantastic coral reef, she sees a lot of fishes of different kinds.


As Nancy swims means when Nancy swims. It is easy, right?

Let me focus on the expression “of different kinds”. She sees a lot of fishes of different kinds. Of different kinds means of different sorts. Nancy sees a lot of fishes of different sorts. She sees a lot of fishes of different kinds. In other words, the fishes are not the same. They are different. They are big and small. They are long and short. They are fat and thin. They are blue, yellow, red and black. Nancy sees many fishes of different kinds. She sees a lot of fishes of different kinds.


They are nice, cheerful and friendly to Nancy. Nancy is thrilled. Here we see the expression to be thrilled. To be thrilled means to be happy and excited. Nancy is happy and excited. Nancy is thrilled. She feels happy and excited. Nancy is thrilled.


Suddenly a huge, ugly and hungry shark appears.

Let me take a minute and explain to you the word ugly. Ugly means not attractive, not nice. Suddenly a huge – big, ugly – not good looking, not nice, not attractive and, of course, hungry shark appears.

The shark starts eating all the fishes. Nancy is trying to escape from the shark, but the shark follows her.

Our next word for today is to escape. To escape means to get away from a very unpleasant situation. Nancy is trying to get away from a very unpleasant situation. Nancy is trying to escape from the shark, but the shark follows her.

And of course, the next word is to follow. To follow means to go or come after someone in the same direction. It’s very easy, right? So the shark goes after Nancy. The shark comes after Nancy. The shark swims after Nancy. The shark follows Nancy.

Nancy is trying to hide in the seaweeds, but the shark finds her and attacks her.

You may know our next word which is to hide. But let me tell you about this word again. To hide. To hide means to go somewhere where no one can find you or see you. Nancy is trying to go somewhere where the shark cannot find her or cannot see her. Nancy is trying to go somewhere where the shark cannot find her. Nancy is trying to swim somewhere where the shark cannot see here. Nancy is trying to hide in the seaweeds, but the shark finds her and attacks her.


But because Nancy is a secret aikido master. What’s it mean? It means that no one knows that Nancy is an aikido master. Nancy keeps it a secret. It is her secret. The secret that she doesn’t reveal to anyone. She doesn’t tell anyone that she is an aikido master.

What is an aikido master? What is an aikido, first?

Aikido is something like, you know, like judo. Actually, aikido is a Japanese self-defense system where you can fight with your hands and with your feet.

So Nancy the fish is a secret aikido master. She knows how to defend herself. She is an aikido master. She is a secret aikido master.


Nancy beats the shark. The shark screams and swims away.

Okay, our next word is to beat. To beat means to hit someone many times. In our case, Nancy hits the shark many times. Nancy beats the shark.


The shark screams and swims away.

And our final word for today is to scream. To scream means to make a loud high cry. Usually because you are hurt, frightened or excited. So Nancy beats the shark. The shark makes a loud high cry, because she is hurt. Nancy hits her many times. The shark screams and swims away. And the shark swims away, because she is hurt.

All the fishes love Nancy. She becomes the queen of the coral reef. She becomes the sea queen of the coral reef. And of course, Nancy is very happy.


And this is the end of the vocabulary lesson for “A Secret”. Now you know what to do. You listen to the vocabulary lesson one or two times a day. It will help you to understand the story better. It will help you to see the words and use the words correctly. And it will certainly help you speak English better.

The next lesson is your bonus lesson. Go and get it!


Your Bonus Lesson

Hello my superstar English student! This is Alex and this is your bonus lesson. In this lesson I am going to tell you the exact same story, but in the past tense. We are going back. Imagine! See in your head it was 10 years ago. Don’t think about the rules. Just listen and enjoy the story!


Ten years ago there was a fish. Her name was Nancy. Nancy the fish had a secret. All the fishes wanted to know the secret. But Nancy didn’t reveal the secret to them.

One day all the fishes decided not to talk to Nancy any more.

The fishes refused to talk to her. The fishes pretended not to see her.

Nancy said, “I don’t care. I can do well without you” and she swam away.


Three weeks later Nancy was swimming towards a big, beautiful and fantastic coral reef. She had never been there before. As Nancy swam up to the big, beautiful and fantastic coral reef, she saw a lot of fishes of different kinds. They were nice, cheerful and friendly to her. Nancy was thrilled.


Suddenly a huge, ugly and hungry shark appeared. The shark started eating all the fishes. Nancy was trying to escape from the shark, but the shark followed her. Nancy was trying to hide in the seaweeds, but the shark found her and attacked her.

But because Nancy was a secret aikido master, she beat the shark. The shark screamed and swam away.

All the fishes loved Nancy. She became the queen of the coral reef. She became the sea queen of the coral reef.


Listen to the story many times. Listen and remember that it was ten years ago. It was in the past. Don’t think about these grammar rules. Just listen and enjoy. The next lesson is the mini-story lesson. See you there.

Unit 3. Passion

Hello, my superstar student. This is Alex – your English teacher. I hope you are having a nice day today. Welcome to our third lesson, the lesson number three “Passion”. Let’s get started.


Gabriela was a Spanish teacher, but her students didn’t like her. She never smiled in classes. She never listened to her students. She never looked at her students when they talked. It seemed like she hated her job. It seemed like she wanted to quit the school.


Happily, there was another Spanish teacher in the school. His name was Alberto. Alberto had a passion for teaching. He jumped and shouted in classes. Alberto encouraged his students. Alberto inspired his students. His students loved learning Spanish with him. Alberto was a very successful teacher. No wonder, all the students liked him.


One day Gabriela was talking to Alberto and she said: “You are popular with students. You are a successful teacher. And I am not. I want to be like you. What’s wrong with me?”


Alberto said, “Let’s face the music! You are a boring teacher and your students feel it. You have no passion for teaching. You must be passionate about teaching.”


Gabriela decisively went to the college library. She read each book about passion. After two months of reading, Gabriela changed her attitude to teaching. She became a very passionate Spanish teacher. Every day she often smiled in her classes. Every day she yelled and jumped. Every day she was excited and enthusiastic in her classes. Now Gabriela became quite popular with students. And she was not going to quit her job.


This is the end of the story “Passion”. Listen to this story every day. Listen and enjoy the story. The next lesson is the vocabulary lesson, very important lesson. See you there.


Oh, by the way, to be more passionate about English, to stay committed to learning English, to remain curious about learning English and to maintain your motivation for learning English. I encourage you to go to my website englishiseasyandfun.ru or you can visit my Instagram page easyenglishshow. Why? There you will find many free, useful, inspiring and empowering ideas not only for learning English, but also for every day life. Go there grab it.


The Vocabulary Lesson

Hello, my superstar English student. This is me again, Alex – your English teacher, your passionate English teacher. Welcome to the vocabulary lesson for “Passion”. Let’s get started.


Okay, the first word I am going to talk about is Passion, of course.


Passion. Passion. Passion means a very strong emotion such as love, hate or envy. Here, of course, we use passion in a very positive meaning. Passion is something that makes people do things, good things. Passion is something that makes people create beautiful things. Passion is something that gives people power and energy something that motivates people.

We need passion to be good parents. We need passion to learn English. We need passion to speak English and not only. We need passion to be better.


So Gabriela is a Spanish teacher, but her students don’t like her. She never smiles, as you remember, in classes. She never listens to her students. She never looks at her students when they talk. It seems like she hates her job. It seems like she wants to quite the school.


Here we see the expression it seems like.

We use this expression to say that something appears to be true. It appears to be true that Gabriela hates her job. So it seems to be true that she wants to quite her job. It seems or it appears to be true that she hates her job. It seems like Gabriela hates her job. It seems like she wants to quit the school.


And next we see to quite. It seems she wants to quit the school.

To quite. To quite means to stop or to give up usually a job. It also means to leave. Bye-bye. Gabriela wants to give up her job. She wants to stop working. She wants to leave the school. She doesn’t want to work for the school any more. It seems like she wants to quit the school.


Luckily, I think, there is another Spanish teacher in school. His name is Alberto. Alberto has a passion for teaching.

Alberto has a passion for teaching. When someone has a passion for something, it means he has love for doing it. Alberto has a strong emotion for teaching. He loves teaching. He has love for teaching. Alberto has a passion for teaching.

That is why he jumps and shouts in his classes. He encourages his students. Alberto inspires his students. His students love learning Spanish with him.


And we see two wonderful words: encourage and inspire. They are very much similar. We use them a lot in English. Let me explain them to you.


To encourage means to support and to inspire means to give someone a feeling of confidence and support. So Alberto supports his students. He says, “I know you can do it. I believe in you. You will speak Spanish well”.

Alberto gives his students a feeling of confidence. He says, “You are creative. You are intelligent. You can do it. You can speak Spanish”. Alberto inspires his students. He encourages and inspires his students, right?


This is the reason why he is very successful. He is a very very successful teacher. No wonder, all the students like him. When do you we say this phrase? I mean no wonder. We say “no wonder” when we are not surprised by a situation or event. So it is not a surprise that all the students like Alberto. No wonder, all the students like him.


And you remember that one day Gabriela is talking to Alberto and she says: “You are popular with students. You are a successful teacher. And I am not. I want to be like you. What’s wrong with me, Alberto?”


Let me start with the sentence “You are popular with students”. It actually means that students like you. They listen to you and they do what you ask them to do. Alberto is popular with students. The students like him. He is popular with students.


Alberto says, “Let’s face the music! You are a boring teacher and your students feel it. You have no passion for teaching. You must be passionate about teaching.


Next we see “Let’s face the music” or simply “face the music” or “let’s face it”. It all means the same. Let’s face the music means accept criticism or simply see the truth. See the truth that you are a boring teacher. Face the music you are a boring teacher. Just accept it as a truth. Let’s face the music! You are a boring teacher, Gabriela.


You have no passion for teaching. It means you don’t love teaching. Teaching is not for you. You are not interested in teaching. You are not a passionate teacher. You are not passionate about teaching.

You must be passionate about teaching. You must be passionate about means you must love doing something, teaching. You must have love for teaching. You must be passionate about teaching. Well, I think you get the idea.

So what does Gabriela do next?

Of course, she thanks Alberto. “Thank you. Thank you”. And she decisively goes to the college library.

We see a very nice word to know – decisively. Decisively means to decide what to do quickly and confidently. Gabriela decides quickly and confidently to go to the college library. She decisively goes there. She doesn’t think much about it. She decides quickly and confidently in her head to go to the college library and she does it. Gabriela decisively goes to the college library.


She reads books, each book about passion. After two months of reading, Gabriela changes her attitude to teaching. She becomes a very passionate Spanish teacher.

To change one’s attitude to something simply means to change your mind or to change your feelings or opinions about something. Gabriela changes her feelings, her opinion about teaching. She changes her attitude to teaching. She becomes a very passionate Spanish teacher. She becomes a very emotional Spanish teacher.

Every day she often smiles in her classes. Every day she yells and jumps. She is excited and enthusiastic in her classes.


And our next word is enthusiastic. When you are enthusiastic it means you are passionate about something or interested in something. Gabriela is passionate about her lessons. She is excited and interested in her classes. She is excited and enthusiastic in her classes.


And of course, now Gabriela becomes quite popular with students. She is not going to quit her job. No, no, no.

And our final word for today is quite. Here quite means very. Now Gabriela is very popular with students. Gabriela becomes quite popular with students. The students like her very much. And of course, she is not going to quit her job. She is going to continue working for the school. She is passionate about teaching. She becomes successful and popular. Now she wants to continue being a teacher.


That’s all. Listen to the vocabulary lesson one or two times a day. It will help you to understand the story better. It will help you to use the words correctly and accurately. The next lesson is the mini-story lesson.

As you know, the mini-story lesson is the most powerful and the most exciting one. See you there!

Hello, my superstar English learner! This is Alex. Welcome to our mini-story for “Passion”.
