About

The Yes Manifesto

At Your English Supplement (Yes) we believe that learning another language can and should be a pleasure. English is not easy; you can’t learn the language in a few months; acquiring English won’t always be fun.

What we promise is that learning English through Yes will be an enriching experience; the process will be rewarding. That’s not an idle marketing promise – it’s what hundreds of readers of our past material have written back to tell us.

The Magazine

Your English Supplement (Yes) is primarily a magazine – a collection of footnoted articles for you to practise reading in English without reference to your native language. This is possible because extensive footnoting in English helps you to understand difficult expressions and unusual vocabulary. It’s a method we have tried and tested for 14 years and we know it works.

Stimulating Articles

Language learning doesn’t have to be infantilizing or dull. We present a great diversity of stimulating articles written by adults for adults. There are no taboo topics, not because we necessarily court controversy but rather because we value debate. Discussion of provocative issues will mean you want to participate. Every month we have a grammar section which helps you to think about English in original ways, honing in on specific problems that cause Efl students difficulty.

Audio Files

Our audio files give you the possibility to practise your listening skills. Real native speakers talking at normal speed may seem an enormous challenge but our audio scripts (again, fully footnoted) will allow you to work on your listening at your own pace and triumph is perhaps the hardest part of learning English.

Exercises

Revise and consolidate all aspects of the magazine and the audio files through the exercises that are an integrated part of the package. This gives you an opportunity to test which aspects of what you’ve learned have caused most difficulty, so you will know what to revise in the future.

Links

Finally, we should point out that our material incorporates links so you can take the topic under discussion further and practise what you’ve learned.

The Yes Team

After 14 years working at Think in English magazine the entire editorial team decided to start a new project that was more customer-focused and better adapted to the new technological possibilities that have emerged in recent years.

The team has decades of experience both teaching English and producing educational material. The men and women who make up Yes’s staff come from all around the Anglosphere – the UK, the USA, Australia, Ireland, South Africa and New Zealand, so we offer a truly international perspective on your English needs. All our staff speak at least two languages, so we know what it takes to learn a second tongue.
