What our students say about
Communicate with Confidence...

This course has five modules.
Here's what you will learn:

01.

Module 1: Speaking Confidently - Insights & Techniques

This module uncovers self-coaching tips for creating a confident you. The techniques will be helpful for you in any speaking situation.

Lesson 1.1: Be Your Best Coach
Lesson 1.2: Backstage Techniques to Look and Sound Confident

"I've improved significantly in terms of casual speaking with patients, as well as in giving effective presentations by utilising all the phrases and templates provided."

The course modules provide a solid foundation in communication skills. The coaching calls are a must; it's like an intensive session where we are required to give our all, enabling us to gain a lot in return.

I would absolutely recommend this course. It is the course I've been searching for all this time. It's a well-structured program that explains all the essential aspects necessary for improving our communication skills. From there, we learn and enhance each aspect by practicing in our daily lives. The fundamental modules and all the bonuses are highly useful and complement each other well.

Lesson 2.3: Features of Natural Speech to Sound Conversational

Audio Lesson 1: Phrases to Ask for Clarification

"I am no longer afraid to talk in English."

I can speak English in front of an online audience, and I’ve started using English when talking to other people. Every lesson is the best, and this is a very honest review from me. I’m super busy with appointments, trainings and meetings, but every time I take time to learn English and watch any of the course videos, I feel motivated and fall in love with English. I would absolutely recommend this online course to others. I have recommended it to my sisters.

Module 3: Sounding Confident

This module is about using the right intonation to match your intentions. We’ll teach you how to properly convey emotions and show you ways to improve your English pronunciation, diction, and tone of voice to sound clear, confident, and dynamic.

Lesson 3.1: Knowing the English Consonants
Lesson 3.2: Knowing the English Vowels & Vowel Length
Lesson 3.3: Get to Know Sentence Stress to Speak Clearly
Lesson 3.4: Speak with Impact through Vocal Variety

"I have noticed that ideas come easily when I speak with others, and I am able to elaborate on complicated or specific topics using techniques that I learnt."

I would recommend this online course to others because it is fun, there is a lot of information and you'll get to know and make friends with other students. If you're not able to attend the Zoom calls, you can watch the replays. I really love this online course.

Module 4: Speaking to Connect with People

This module teaches the strategies for listening effectively in meetings, techniques and phrases to express your opinions professionally, and tips to handle small talk successfully.

Lesson 4.1: Listening Skills for Effective Meetings
Lesson 4.2: Useful Expressions to Express Your Opinion
Lesson 4.3: Techniques for Small Talk Success

"Communicate with Confidence allows me to be flexible with my time."

I'm able to replay the videos many times, and taking notes made me realise there are many new things that I have discovered.

I'm still going through the modules because I learn and practise each module slowly. I would definitely recommend this course to my friends. This course looks simple and yet it is very informative and engaging. Learning English has brought great fun in my daily activities.

Module 5: Speaking in Tough Situations

In this final module, we teach you how to speak your mind assertively, how to assert your opinions respectfully, and how to give criticism without causing offence.

Lesson 5.1: Introduction to Assertive Communication
Lesson 5.2: Using Power Poses to Feel Confident
Lesson 5.3: Using Assertive Communication Techniques: The Double P.S. Strategy
Lesson 5.4: How to Say “No” Like You Mean It

"I now feel more confident than before, and my sentences are more structured when speaking. I find it easier to convey messages to others."

I wanted to make full use of the course and see the impact it would have on myself. After knowing that I have lifetime access to the content, I feel that it is worth the value as I can learn and refer to it anytime at my own pace.

The Coaching Calls were very useful. I love getting feedback and knowing how I can improve. I was also happy to be able to ask questions directly to the experts and get their answers, something I had been awaiting for too long.

I would definitely recommend this course to others, especially working adults looking to appear more confident and professional. Joining this class has been a great experience, especially with awesome people who share the same interests and goals. Hopefully, more people will benefit from this course.

We created this course specifically for busy people like you! It’s online so that you don’t have to travel to a class. You can watch the videos anytime (because you will have lifetime access).

So if you enrol today and you’re unable to go through the course materials within the duration of the course, you can watch it anytime after that! You’ll have lifetime access to the course.

The videos are short, compact, and concise so that you only get the best tips and strategies in the shortest amount of time.

The Zoom Coaching Calls are not compulsory for you to join — you can join them live or just watch the replays. We provide the coaching calls as an extra bonus as we know some students want to practise and ask questions.

You can also join the Zoom Coaching Calls for the next intake of students because we invite all current past CWC students to them, too.

But just think about it.

If you scheduled only one hour a week to watch each module, you would have the tools and techniques to become a more confident you by the end of just seven weeks. And if you’re serious about wanting to become more confident at work, you deserve to give yourself the time it takes to achieve that goal, don’t you think?

If you are reading this and you can understand, then your level of English is great for this course. If you think you’re a beginner, it may be a steeper learning curve. But that’s fine. You can take the course at your own pace. Choose the lessons that fit your level of English. As you advance to the next level, you can watch the other lessons that suit your level of English then.

We will teach you the techniques and strategies to help you manage nerves and anxiety. It’s just a matter of you watching the videos, completing the exercises and practising!

Remember, you’ll have lifetime access to the course. You don’t need to go through it all at once. We want you to pick and choose lessons that can solve the problems you are facing RIGHT NOW.

Yes! You can watch these videos of our students on our Student Spotlight page. We also have more testimonials throughout this page. Before they joined us, some were probably just like you — busy with work and daily life, unsure if the course would be effective, shy, or not even fluent in English!

But they took a chance and believed that they could improve their communication skills with the proper tools and training. We’d love to see the same transformation with you.

Our online course is a self-study programme that is suitable for students who want to learn independently and in their own time. When you become a student, you can watch the videos at home, download the worksheets, and practise as many times as you want with whomever you want. You can do it at your own pace, anytime and anywhere (provided you have internet access, of course!).

The online course will give you the techniques to help you speak confidently. We’ll give you phrases to practise at home to sound more fluent and to help you express your opinions. You’ll get to download worksheets to complete exercises and to refer to for useful phrases. You’ll be able to email us if you want to get our feedback. You’ll be part of a group with other students of the course to cheer each other on.

However, the effectiveness of the course is solely up to you.

This online course is a self-learning programme – no one is going to push you to do the work. You have to make the time to do the work. You’ll need to practise what we teach.

Learning is a lifelong process and you’re not going to see change overnight. That’s why we’re giving you lifetime access to this course (for as long as it’s available).

What’s more, you can try out the course and complete the exercises in the worksheets before the refund deadline. If you feel that it’s not effective for you, let us know and we’ll give you a full refund once you submit your completed worksheets by Tuesday, 5 March 2024.

So, if you know that you can only learn in a classroom environment, or you want a one-to-one teacher, then please do not join this online course.

But if you like the idea of having online lessons available for you to learn from anytime and anywhere (with internet access, of course!), then we’d love to have you join us.

We’re focused on providing online courses and live workshops so we do not provide one-to-one training.

The Communicate with Confidence online course is not a live/personal class, so if you only want to learn with a personal coach or teacher, then this course is not for you.

Our online course is a self-study programme that is suitable for students who want to learn independently and in their own time.

We’ll be covering many things in the course in bite-sized steps (you can check out the five modules and lessons above). With unlimited access to the online lessons, you can watch the lessons over and over again.

If you forget anything, you can always revisit any of the modules, even after the course duration ends. Talk about your money’s worth!

So while face-to-face classes have the benefit of getting instant feedback from your teacher and are more intimate, the disadvantage to that is you’re paying for that particular session only. After the face-to-face class is over, there won’t be any repeats, or a chance to revisit parts, unless you pay additional fees to resit a class.

Which is why we have designed this online course.

It is meant for you to take bit by bit, implement, and then take with you wherever you may be. If you need to be inspired and motivated, simply revisit the lessons in your online student dashboard.

However, there are several opportunities for you to get personalised coaching from us if you join us.

Students of this online course can join a group coaching call on Zoom with us for a total of five sessions plus monthly sessions from April till December 2024. That means you’ll get to speak directly to us to ask questions that are specific and unique to you.

CWC is a programme focused on the mindset and techniques to become a more confident and fluent speaker. It is step-by-step with modules covering from the most basic to advanced communication skills.

We recommend this course if you want to learn communication techniques and not just English as a language.

We cover the mindset for confident communication, speaking frameworks to sound fluent, techniques to sound confident with your voice, and phrases to use in difficult speaking situations. After all the lessons are released, you can revisit and watch the lessons anytime because you will have lifetime access!

Members Monthly is an ongoing membership community focused on English proficiency. In Members Monthly, students get monthly live training from us in a group setting, focusing more on grammar. We cover a different topic every month.

So we have students who have joined both CWC and Members Monthly because they want to improve the skills covered in both programmes — communication, speaking, and grammar!

The lessons are online, so you don’t need to attend any classes. Students will be given a link to their online student dashboard to log in to the course.

You can just watch the videos and download the worksheets at home!

The Zoom Coaching Calls are not compulsory for you to join — you can join them live or just watch the replays. We provide the coaching calls as an extra bonus as we know some students want to practise and ask questions.

You can also join the Zoom Coaching Calls for the next intake of students because we invite all current past CWC students to them, too.

It will take at least seven weeks for you to complete the five core modules of the course. We will release one module each week, with the first module released immediately upon enrolment. The third, fifth and eighth weeks are Implementation Weeks where you are given time to catch up on any lessons before we release further content. We’ll send the bonus training lessons in the remaining weeks.

If you’re unable to finish the course within the 12 weeks, you’ll still be able to view the lessons after it ends. Remember, you’ll have lifetime access to the course for as long as it’s available!

It should take about an hour each week for you to watch the videos of one module. The worksheets may take longer for you to complete as it will depend on how long you want to spend on them. It will be different for each student.

Throughout the duration of the course, you can always email us at info@myenglishmatters.com if you have any questions. We’ll answer any questions you may have relating to the course materials. This support will be available to you for as long as you’re a student of Communicate with Confidence.

You’ll also have the monthly Zoom Coaching Calls and Speaking Practice Sessions where you can join us live with other students on Zoom. We’ll be there live to answer any of your questions!

This is a self-study programme, so there will not be any assignments. However, you will have downloadable worksheets to work on in your own time.

No. We want you to be able to go through the lessons anytime you want. So you can download the worksheets and view the videos anytime!

If for any reason you have any difficulty in accessing the course, you can always send us an email at info@myenglishmatters.com so we can get it fixed for you.

Great question! This course is NOT for:

People who ONLY want a certificate – we do not provide certificates. This is a self-learning programme so we do not measure the success of students. We want you to go through the course lessons even after it ends. That’s why we’re giving you lifetime access to this course (for as long as it’s available)!

People who DON’T want to do the work – This online course is a self-learning programme – no one is going to push you to do the work. You have to make the time to do the work. You’ll need to practise what we teach. Learning is a lifelong process and you’re not going to see changes overnight.

People who can ONLY learn with a personal teacher or in a classroom – Our online course is suitable for students who want to learn independently and in their own time. You can do it at your own pace, anytime and anywhere (provided you have internet access, of course!). 

If you don’t fit any of the above, we’d love to have you join us!

That’s great! You can register by choosing a payment plan. Once you register, you’ll receive an email with further details about the course. Do take note that the last day to register is Thursday, 1 February 2024. 

We can’t wait to teach you Communicate with Confidence!
