My 4-Step Plan to Getting Great English 


This is the best way to prepare for practising with My Method. I encourage you to download it and follow the steps. You'll find the form at the top of this page.

You can read more about this Plan here.

  • How do I ask a new question?
    I welcome questions because I enjoy chatting with new people. If you'd like to know anything, you can ask me a question - or questions - about my Modules by writing to me here. Or you can chat with me at Facebook Messenger here.
  • Do you offer lessons online?
    No, I'm sorry, I don't. My 'Simply Better' Methods Modules are designed for self-instruction, which means you teach yourself with the materials provided. It helps if you have a library of resources (dictionaries, text books, 'realia' such as newspapers, books, TV or radio programs or podcasts etc.) to assist your learning. Limited support is offered for free, but I shall decide the limits of such interaction. I do post Bite-sized Lessons on facebook/meta regularly. And I include Mini-Lessons every week in my Newsletter along with other interesting and useful aspects of English. New subscribers to my Newsletter get FREE my collected Volumes of Mini-Lessons from earlier issues as well as Volumes of Basic English collected from facebook posts. So, I offer many ways to help you learn (or brush up on your) English at no cost. My aim is to offer you these resources for free to enable you to continue PRACTICING with my Modules to improve your English skills. If you have other questions not covered here, please see my FAQ section at the website here:
  • Do you offer any support at all?
    For customers who have purchased any of my modules, I offer limited support. As I mentioned in the previous question, my business is based on students taking charge of their own learning. Otherwise, extended online support defeats the purpose and becomes a free online lesson. And I don't do that. Others will but I don't. I'm sorry. If you have other questions not covered here, please see my FAQ section at the website here:
  • Tell me more about your 'simply better' Rewards Points
    My 'simply better' Rewards Points are awarded only to Subscribers of my Weekly Newsletter who respond in some way: commenting on my Blog posts, liking, sharing, and commenting on my social media sites (facebook/meta, Instagram, LinkedIn etc) or emailing me. Subscribers get 100 points to start with then earn smaller numbers of points (10 or 20 points) for small responses and 50 points for referrals of friends to my site - as new subscribers. Rewards Points can be collected and used for discounts on my Modules (300 points for 30%, 500 points for 50%, and a maximum of 600 points for 60%). They are useful to use when I am not running other offers. That is, they can be used at any time. Subscribers can contact me to find out how many points they have and if they wish to use their points to buy any of my Modules I will send them a one-time PromoCode for the desired discount. If you have other questions about the cost of the Modules in your currency, please contact me. If you have other questions not covered here, please see my FAQ section at the website here:
  • Can you teach me?
    My 'Simply Better' Methods are suited to students whose English is fair to good already but who want to improve, or 'tweak' their English skills. They are not suited to beginners unfortunately. So, if you can read and understand English - and I try to write clearly and simply - you will be perfectly capable of learning my Methods. Of course, you may have to reread sections to understand fully, but once you 'get it', you will realise just how simple the techniques I provide are. Becoming fluent in a language requires a lot of effort. You need to develop a number of skills: comprehension of what you hear (listening skills) and what you read grammar (tenses etc) punctuation an ever-developing vocabulary correct pronunciation and finally, acquiring the ability to think, speak, and write in English. Do not be surprised if you start to dream in English - a sign that you are succeeding in your 'journey' to becoming an accomplished user of English. If you want to know how well you can read and understand what you read, do My Free Reading Comprehension Test. Complete the form at the Home page.
  • What's your name and where do you come from?
    My Name is Michael Finemore (pron: fin-a-more) and I am an Australian-born man living in NW Victoria, in Australia. By the way, I am a native speaker of English and I try to be clear in my speaking; that is I don't believe I have a strong ' Australian' accent; it's quite neutral.
  • Can you show me a sample of your courses?
    I don't offer 'courses' or weeks or months of classes. I offer 'self teaching/learning' Modules that you pay JUST ONCE to gain access to. My 'Simply Better' Methods: Modules A and B, and the IELTS Speaking test, for example are based on a very very simple idea. To tell you that simple idea would defeat the purpose of my selling them. Learn the simple method and it will unlock UNLIMITED opportunities to practice all your skills at once. When you are ready, come chat with me and I will see how well you have mastered the method. And to see how much your English has improved with the Method. Sure, by all means, keep taking lessons with others, but you will discover that the method will help you do much better in those lessons. My Method doesn't replace orthodox lessons, it merely augments them. Whether or not you succeed after learning it, is up to you. You must take some control over your learning to achieve success - achieving perfect written and spoken English. I developed the methods (including the Spelling and Pronunciation methods) after a number of years of teaching English. Nobody I know is using these methods in their teaching practices. My Methods are unique to Apex English Tutoring and very powerful as a way to perfect one's English. All of my methods are 'lessons for life'.
