Low Intermediate English: Shopping & Customer Service

Voxy via Coursera


In this course, you will learn important language to describe how you shop, review what you’ve bought, and assist customers. Learning activities in this course will take place on Voxy, an engaging language learning platform that automatically adapts to your current level and your performance across reading, listening, speaking, grammar, and vocabulary skills so that every lesson is optimized for rapid improvement.

Each week is made up of engaging, short, task-based lessons that can be done anywhere, anytime.
