πŸ“š 1. I want to decide what to learn.

Not sure where to start in your Talaera Self-Study portal? Pick the statement below that describes you best:

a. "I’m new to English" β†’ Go to English for Beginners. Learn important words and phrases for work. Introduce yourself, tell people about your job, and discuss the past, present, and future.

b. "I’m good at English, but I have a lot to learn" β†’ Our Featured Topics are a great place to start. Choose from: Email Fundamentals, Presentations Fundamentals, or Confidence Speaking at Work. These are our most popular Topics!

c. "I feel very comfortable with English but want to perfect my skills" β†’ Many advanced English learners struggle with small words, like prepositions and articles - A, AN, and THE. This Articles page is a great place to start if improving grammar is your goal. Are you more concerned with tone - sounding assertive or softer, for example - or, do you want to add more variety to how you express yourself in English? If so, we recommend Business Emails - Advanced or Meetings C1 - Advanced.
