Meet Your Teacher

My name is Shana and I’m an ESL teacher from California. 

Over the past 10 years, I’ve been fortunate to share my love of English in Brazil, Spain, Germany, and throughout the US. Having taught over 3,000 online and in-person lessons, I’ve become obsessed with how to make the intermediate student's learning experience effective and memorable.

Apart from teaching, I like to bake, hike and I’m an avid language learner. I love listening to German and French podcasts and chatting with my husband Lucas and our two daughters in Portuguese!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is access to this material permanent? Yes, you will have permanent access to all premium content up to episode 150. In fact, by purchasing this material BEFORE I hit episode 150, you get a hefty (big) discount.

Is the American English Accent Course or Grammar Course included in this bundle? No. Premium Content is all lessons and bonus material for the PODCAST. The Accent and Grammar courses have nothing to do with the podcast or podcast episodes. Lessons provided in ALL Premium Content do touch on both accent and grammar (albeit not as in depth).

Is the Premium Content designed for my language level? What is my language level? As a rule, if you understand 60-70% of what I say in podcast episodes (or MORE!), then your level is ideal for the material provided in this bundle. If you struggle understanding the episodes, then you might want to consider taking a pre-intermediate course before purchasing this.

What if this content is not for me? Although I doubt you'll regret this purchase, just write me within 14 days of purchasing and I'll send your money back! :)

Student Reviews

"I'm enjoying every episode very much! The transcripts are very helpful! Not only do I end up understanding some part that I missed in the listening, but they also help me with pronunciation and learning new vocabulary!!! I'm very happy, I can't think of a better way to start the year!" - Elena from Madrid


"I'm happy to tell you that I've acquired Season 3. I'm not lying, the content is more than I expected!!!!

To be honest, I expected only the downloadable audio in mp3, the transcriptions in the form of PDF and the quizzes, but your webpage surprised me! I love the transcriptions by SONIX, it allows me to read, listen and mimic pronunciation easier than ever. And not to mention your professional learning methodologies, so great!

Thank you again for helping me restore my sense of fun in learning English and revive my interest in the language!" - Bernardo Téllez Gómez
