Ezenglish takes a new approach to enabling those with little or no knowledge of English to gain a basic facility with the language quickly by teaching a version of English with some of the irregularities which make English so hard to learn simplified.
The Ezenglish course teaches a simplified version of English, omitting many of the irregularities of the language which make it so difficult to learn. For example, the articles "the" and "a" are not used; the only verb tenses taught are Present, Past, and Future; and the past tense of all verbs--even irregular ones--is formed by adding "ed" to the verb (Ex.: "growed", instead of "grew").
It is intended for those with an immediate need to be able to communicate in a basic English: the traveler soon to embark on a trip abroad, the hostess preparing to accommodate an English-speaking guest, the businessman planning to attend an international conference, grandparents seeking to better converse with their English-only grandchildren. No prior knowledge of English or even the Latin alphabet is required. (If the ultimate aim of the student is to gain fluency in English, a course which teaches proper English is more appropriate.)
This is not a self-taught course. It requires an instructor fluent in the native language of the student(s) and proficient, though not necessarily fluent, in English (If you can understand this course description, your English is good enough.). That's where you come in. It's up to you to purchase the course material, enroll the students, and teach the class.
Each lesson includes notes to aid the instructor in teaching the lesson and the lesson itself, with exercises for the student(s) to complete. At the end of the course manual are additional exercises which can be assigned as homework. A bilingual dictionary is helpful, if not essential, for completing some of the exercises. (Answers to the exercises are provided on this website under the "Exercises" tab at the top of the screen.)
A list of nouns which do not conform to the proper rule for forming plurals (add "s" or "es"),
