What do you think about death and life after death. Any planing for there.

Got a (fairly random) email from Osama last week…

What do you think about death and life after death. Any planing for there.

I don’t normally reply this sort of thing. I just don’t have time. But I thought It’d make a good blog post today.

So here goes…

I don’t think anything. And I don’t have any ‘plans’.

That’s it. It’s that simple.

This sort of thing comes down to ‘faith’. But I am, first and foremost, a man of science. And until science proves that some kind of god or after life exists…

I won’t believe in it.

I’m sure a lot of people who watch the Doing English Youtube channel, read the blog, or subscribe to the newsletter are religious.

And that’s fine.

But I’m not. And I never will be.

What I do believe in however, is the power of Doing English+ to transform your English.

Why? Because it’s based on science and research. Just to give you an idea, here’s just some of the academic papers I’ve read over the last 5, six weeks:


Why do I spend so my time reading, researching and learning about how languages are learned?

Because there’s so much bullshit advice on the internet. Instead I aim to only teach quality information and techniques.

Want to learn some of what I have to teach?

But be warned: if you’re looking for a lazy ‘no effort’ way to learn English without doing anything? You’ll be disappointed.

If you’re a realistic person who’s serious about improving their English on the other hand…
