Rock Your English! Video Courses

This is the fresh and funky way to learn English from some of your musical heroes (who also happen to be some of my favorite people). There is an Intro lesson, then 14 lessons on Grammar, then 1 lesson on Vocabulary Development and 1 bonus lesson on Songwriting and Pronunciation. Each lesson is between 12 and 18 minutes in length and features a new learning goal highlighting a fabulous artist. Have a look at the descriptions below! These online lessons work best when used in Complete Course, together with the Rock Your English! book + CD.
