The short answer is, No. However, we believe that the key to actually learning to use English in real situations is through practice. This course is designed to get you writing and speaking phrases consistently so that they come to you naturally the next time you are in a situation where you need to speak English.
For homework posted on the same day you received it, we'll do our very best to send you your corrections within 24 hours. (Please be aware that there may be times when we can't send out corrections by the time stated above.) For homework that is turned in later than the day you received it, corrections may take a little longer.

We can't make learning English easy, but we can provide you with an efficient method that is guaranteed to help you improve.
