Special Courses: Day in the Life of Jeff (A Man)

(Audio + Text Course)

This course contains 10 lessons that describe each part of a typical day of a man. Follow Jeff as he gets up in the morning, gets ready for work, drives to work, works in the office, goes to the market, returns home, does household chores, and goes to bed.

In each lesson, you’ll learn common and useful vocabulary for everyday things and situations.


“A Day in the Life of Jeff (a Man)” is designed to work together with “A Day in the Life of Lucy (a Woman)” to help you learn daily English in the most effective way. About 50% of the vocabulary is repeated in the other course to allow you to see how the vocabulary is used in two different situations, and to reinforce what you have learned in the first course.

The other 50% of the vocabulary is not used in the other course, and lets you learn even more language used in different kinds of daily situations.

It doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman! Both courses are for anyone who wants to learn how to do and talk about daily things in English.
