Technique unique d’apprentissage
Je donne des cours d’anglais. Chaque jour, j’encourage mes élèves à parler
dans leurs groupes respectifs. Lorsqu’ils parlent (et ils parlent beaucoup!), ils
commettent beaucoup de fautes.

Etant pointilleux sur les échanges respectifs, je passe des heures à corriger
les fautes commises afin que mes élèves apprennent à ne plus les
commettre tout en améliorant rapidement leurs niveaux.

Dans ce E-BOOK KodjoCorrection, j’ai consolidé des milliers de phrases + mes


corrections et de petites leçons à l’appui expliquant les fautes commises.
Chaque semaine j’ajoute des dizaines de nouvelles corrections donc vous
aurez toujours du nouveau contenu!

Vous ne trouverez nulle part ailleurs un répertoire aussi fourni, de fautes de


grammaire, conjugaison et orthographe commises par des apprenants
francophones lorsqu’ils parlent anglais.

Mettre en application les corrections proposées va considérablement


augmenter votre niveau d’anglais.

Comment ça marche?

Je vous présente une phrase en anglais qui contient


des fautes faites très souvent par les francophones.

Vous corrigez vous-même la phrase. Ça ne sera


pas une question à choix multiples.

Vous consultez ensuite ma correction ainsi que l’explication


des erreurs puis vous passez à la phrase suivante.

Qui suis-je ?

Je suis Kodjo Hounnaké, Togolais-


Américain. J’ai travaillé à New
York comme banquier d’affaire, et
par la suite comme gestionnaire
de fonds, où nous étions un petit
groupe à gérer un portefeuille
de 2 milliards de dollars. Au delà
de ma carrière en finance, j’ai
également créé une entreprise
(dans le domaine de l’achat et
livraison d’épiceries) à New York
où j’ai employé des Américains.
Aujourd’hui je donne des cours
d’anglais en ligne aux Africains
francophones dans 40 pays.

En donnant ces cours, j’entends


énormément de fautes de
grammaire et d’orthographe et je
les corrige.

Avec KodjoCorrection, vous


avez accès à toutes ces fautes
ainsi qu’aux corrections mais
également à de petites leçons
pour expliquer les corrections qui
ne sont pas évidentes afin que vous
puissiez rapidement améliorer
votre niveau d’anglais.
