What are daily lessons?

These short lessons cannot substitute speaking on a regular basis, which is the best way to improve. These lessons are a great way to keep improving in between lessons. They are short readings and videos selected by Marcus to help you save time and energy. It is not easy to stay motivated and even when you are motivated, it is difficult to find something new and interesting every day. I will take care of that for you, making it very simple for you to improve your English skills every single day!

Queste brevi lezioni non possono sostituire il parlare regolarmente, che è il modo migliore per migliorare. Queste lezioni sono un ottimo modo per continuare a migliorare tra una lezione e l’altra. Sono brevi letture e video selezionati da Marcus per aiutarvi a risparmiare tempo ed energia. Non è facile rimanere motivati e anche quando si è motivati, è difficile trovare qualcosa di nuovo e interessante ogni giorno. Me ne occuperò io per voi, rendendo molto semplice per voi migliorare la vostra conoscenza dell’inglese ogni singolo giorno!

How to use daily lessons

No stress! My goal is to provide new and interesting material every day for those who like to learn a little bit at a time. For others who don’t have time to study everyday, I don’t wan’t you to feel discouraged or overwhelmed. When you have time, do what you can and decide when and if you have time to practice. Every person is different and each of us has our own learning method.

Niente stress! Il mio obiettivo è quello di fornire ogni giorno materiale nuovo e interessante per chi ama imparare un po’ alla volta. Per gli altri che non hanno tempo di studiare ogni giorno, non voglio che vi sentiate scoraggiati o sopraffatti. Quando avete tempo, fate quello che potete e decidete quando e se avete tempo per esercitarvi. Ogni persona è diversa e ognuno di noi ha il proprio metodo di apprendimento.
