2020 Update

Hey everyone,

this is Ivan. I haven’t published any new content on this website for quite a long time. My priorities have shifted into a different direction and I am not planning to update the English the Smart Way anymore.

With that said, I see that many people find the content useful, so I decided to keep the website online. The website is now redesigned and slightly updated for better experience.

Free eBook

English the Smart Way ebook is still here for your to download for free. If you find it useful, please share it with your friends.

Newsletter

As I am stopping the newsletter, it is not possible to subscribe anymore. Not to worry – you will now find all the newsletters published over here.

It was a pleasure building this blog for you. All the best and enjoy English!
