Cambridge1English is very excited about our intensive Real English courses here in Cambridge!
This course is something special! It’s designed and written by Cambridge1English to give students the true language they will experience every day while visiting or studying and working in England.
The intensive course of twenty 50-minute classes per week, for one or two weeks accompanied by a rich timetable of trips, activities and events which provide more practice opportunities as well as fun.
The schedule is unique in that there is a class every day dedicated to:
- Colloquialisms, slang and phrasal Verbs,
- Vocabulary or grammar the way native speakers use it,
- Pronunciation and accent reduction,
- Handling challenging situations.
We also give every student a free personal audio progress report!
1. Most (no ‘of’) is a determiner. For example it replaces a, an, the, every, some etc. in a sentence, so:
- ‘Milk in most supermarkets is cheap.’ OR, you could say, ‘Milk in the supermarket is cheap.’
- ‘Most people in England watch TV.’ NOT ‘Most of people in England watch TV.’
2. Most of (with ‘of’ ;-)) is a pronoun which refers to I, you, he, they, it, this etc. somewhere else in your writing or speech, so:
- I went on holiday last summer. I spent most of it relaxing and doing nothing.
- I spent most of the winter on the coast.
Which do you think are physical & which are non-physical? Some might be both … or neither… depending on your views!

In this photo of Ely Cathedral, there’s a tree at the front, in the middle. There’s another tree on the right-hand side. The cathedral is in the background. There’s a cloudy sky above the cathedral. The photo is on this English learning website. You’re looking at it on your computer or on your phone 🙂
Cambridge1 English clients get exclusive access to lots of English resources!
The Josephine Hart Poetry Hour provides some beautiful listening material for helping you notice and work on rhythm and intonation, especially if your native language is syllable-timed rather than stress-timed e.g., Mandarin, French or Spanish. The presenter, Hart, speaks slowly & carefully but naturally.
I’ve also written a transcript for one of her presentations.
