You’re about to deepen your skills as an English speaker.

 

Blue Canoe is designed for English-language learners who have a good understanding of English vocabulary and grammar. Going the “last mile” to be understood when you speak English, and to train your brain to hear English sounds better, is in many ways the hardest part of spoken English. Blue Canoe is your place to learn and practice to get through that last mile.

Watch the on-demand course below at your own pace. Begin with Chapter 1: Blue Canoe & YOU! for an overview about why spoken English is challenging.

We recommend setting aside 5 minutes each day to watch the follow up chapters. Then, look for a Lesson in Blue Canoe to reinforce this idea to practice. We’ve suggested a few. This will help you to focus on a concept and really learn in a deeper way.
