Links for the Courses Promoted


Dear Readers,

I am in the process of changing all links to another service. I am hoping to get specific links but at the moment they are a bit generic. Please be patient and when you read a specific review, if you liked it and you thought it was useful, click any of the links, and then search for the course manually. I know this is a bit of a pain but I hope that when you read my reviews, you feel I have done enough for you to make the extra effort.

I’m looking to rectify the situation as soon as possible. Thanks again for your understanding and patience in this matter.

Introduction to the TOEFL iBT


This is just a quick review of the course ‘Introduction to the TOEFL’ by I think the instructor is called Chris Lele; if I’m wrong and someone from Magoosh reads this, leave a comment below. As an ex-ELT, I thought it would be interesting to do this course just to see what it is all about. At the time of writing, this was a free course and I suspect will always be free. I got an email the other day from Magoosh stating that all their courses on Udemy will indeed be free forever. Nice!

If you would like to take another free TOEFL course, my own course on writing techniques for the TOEFL can be found here.

So, what are the 10 Modern Marketing Mistakes in 2015 and are we making them?

Ways To Make Money Online – $9000 Monthly Doing This!

Making money online

Brandon starts off with a nice short introduction, giving us an overview of the course and talks about how he wants to help us succeed, that he’s available to answer any questions, and all that sort of stuff. I have to say, he sounds so relaxed I keep worrying he’s going to fall asleep. My thoughts constantly wander off to a Cheech and Chong movie (link here for younger readers; do NOT click if easily offended).
