You go to work every day and every day you feel insecure about your English.

Maybe some days are better than others but you are always concerned that your colleagues won't understand you or that you'll look foolish or incompetent.

I want you to feel strong and confident when you are at work.

I want you to be able to focus on the things that matter, like your career and to forget about your insecurities when it comes to English.

The best way to do that is to learn vocabulary.

Vocabulary is a tool that you can pull out of your back pocket when you need it.

It keeps you confident because you always have the words you need.
