Hi students! Today is the first day of our 5-day mini-course about English words with multiple meanings.

In this mini-course, we’re going to look at 5 VERY common words and learn a total of 100 different ways to use them. This will improve your ability to express yourself in English, because you’ll discover lots of new ways to use some words you already know.

Here’s how the course works: each daily lesson will focus on one word, and I’ll teach you various meanings of that word in English, as well as how it’s used in some expressions and phrasal verbs.

After you watch the video, make sure to do the exercises so that you can review what you’ve learned and put it into practice! Practicing is the key to remembering these words and expressions so that you can actually use them when you speak English.
