Julian Northbrook’s Prestigious "League of Extraordinary English Speakers" English Mastery Group

The MEFA Graduates Programme

The League of Extraordinary English Speakers

... Are you learning English every day?

In 1911 two teams raced to the South Pole. One was a team of Norwegians led by Roald Amundsen. The other was a team of Brits led by Robert Falcon Scott.

It was a 1400 mile journey, and incredibly dangerous.

Both teams were well prepared, with tools, equipment and detailed plans to follow. The only real difference was the strategy they took.

Scott decided that his team would walk as far as possible on good weather days, and rest during bad weather. Amundsen’s team decided they would stick to a strict, consistent routine — just 20 miles a day, regardless of weather.

Amundsen’s team made it to the South Pole and back on schedule.

Scott’s team died en route.

Fluent English is a Good Habit

If you don’t speak well it's because you don’t have the right English speaking-habits. If you speak slowly and awkwardly… that’s a habit. 

If you use unnatural English?

Yes, that’s a habit, too.

If you consistently make the same mistakes again and again… those are all bad habits.

How to Master English

... Mastering English is about doing the things we know work consistently and over time.

In order to see rapid improvement three things have to be right:

  1. The method you use (good methods promote fluency, bad methods slow you down and make things worse rather than better).
  2. The materials you use (even the best method is useless if you’re learning the wrong thing and filling your head with useless English).
  3. And your mindset has to be right (because if you think you can’t do it, you simply won’t do the work anyway and everything is a waste of time).

This is your foundation.

And getting this right is essential. Which is why we covered it in detail in my MEFA course.

"Julian Northbrook's League of Extraordinary English Speakers" continues on from MEFA and provides on-going support and materials to make consistent learning dead easy.

I’ve long found that the people who get the best results start by building a strong foundation (The First 90 Days) then consistently implement that over time.

Scott and Amundsen didn’t start their legendary race to the South Pole unprepared. They put in months of planning and preparation.

But ultimately, the reason Amundsen succeeded and Scott didn’t was consistent relentless action.

And this is what Extraordinary English Speakers helps you with.

You already know what to do… but are you doing it?

Extraordinary English Speakers is a group of people dedicated to mastering the English language and speaking it without hesitation in all areas of their lives.

People who get the best results are learning English every day, regardless of the weather or whatever else is happening in their lives.

It might just be a few minutes... but as with a journey to the south pole, a little done every day is better than a lot done occasionally.

Here’s What Your EES Membership Includes When You Join Today:


  • A lesson to study Every Monday based on my unconventional Rocket Launch Method (I teach you this in MEFA) — simply do the lesson each week, and watch your English grow at a terrific pace. 
  • An archive of 311 past lessons and trainings for when you have extra time or a specific topic you need to speak about.
  • Weekly Q&A Calls Every Friday — every Friday we have a meeting via Zoom to discuss any questions, problems and challenges you face with your English (these sessions are normally 11:15 am Ireland time, but I do switch the times around depending on my schedule).
  • Access to the EES Discussion Group. This is your place to ask questions, get advice and use your English. It's also where I send links to lessons, the live group meetings and any other bonus trainings or sessions.
  • Special rates on courses, seminars and workshops that I run. Enough said.

Here’s What Your EES Membership Includes When You Join Today:


  • A new lesson to study Every Friday at 5 pm — When you join, there are two lessons that all new members must complete. These will teach you the method we use and get you started in around 2 to 3 hours. From there, simply do the current lesson each well, following the process you already learned. If you have extra time…
    There are more than 170 past lessons to pick and choose from and study at your leisure.
  • Weekly Group Coaching Sessions Every Friday — every Friday we have a meeting via Zoom to discuss any questions, problems and challenges you face with your English (these sessions are normally 11 am Ireland time, but I do switch the times around − you can also ask questions in advance if you can’t make it live, and everything is recorded).
  • I also regularly publish new episodes in my “Extraordinary English Conversations” series. These are interviews that I do with a whole range of brilliant businessmen and women from all manner of industries and skill areas. These are designed to get you used to listening to and understanding a wide range of different accents, as well as inspire and teach you new knowledge and skills.
  • Access to the Discussion Group. This is your place to ask questions, get advice and use your English.
  • If you’re an English teacher, you have permission to re-use lessons with your own students (you can use materials in classrooms and with coaching students, whether in person or via Skype – but you cannot upload or make materials available online).
  • Special rates on courses, seminars and workshops that I run. Enough said.

Who is This For?

Before you join EES make sure you mean the following requirements…

  1. You've done my MEFA course − I’ve long found that EES works much better if you understand the method behind what we do (which is what MEFA is all about). EES is only open to people who have already done MEFA.
  2. You must have maintained an 80% completion rate for homework during the MEFA course − EES, like MEFA, will take work and effort on your part. I want to keep the quality of the group high, so we only let in people who participated during MEFA.
  3. If you want to learn to speak like an American this isn’t for you. If you use English either internationally, or you’re using British (best), Irish, Australian or New Zealander English (also a very good match) this is best. I’m British and the lessons I make are based primarily on British English and culture.
  4. If you get offended easily, complain a lot or don't like listening to advice you shouldn't join. I have Autistic Spectrum Disorder (Asperger's) and which that makes me incredibly good at what I do, it means I have zero tact or patience (you should already know this from completing MEFA, of course).

If you don't meet these requirements, sorry, but you shouldn't join Extraordinary English Speakers.

Some Common Questions

Do I need to complete the MEF Accelerator course first?

Yes. MEFA provides the foundation of everything I do, and it is required before EES or any of my other 'Advanced Skills' courses. Think of it as the same as Karate... you can't just walk in and skip straight to a black belt. You've got to start at the beginning and work up.

Can I cancel my membership any time?

Yes. You can cancel yourself at any time.

But be aware that once you cancel, you cancel. I don't take you back. I do this to discourage time-wasters who join, lose motivation... then try to join again later.

Can I get a refund if I decide not to do it?

No. There are no refunds for any reason. I do this to ensure people who waste my time don't join.

What People Are Saying

"It’s really helpful to learn phrases that I can use in everyday situations and I noticed that I started using them!"

"I've been a member of ESS for about a year now and have done a number of lessons (episodes) and listened to quite a few Julian's interviews. I have to say that so far I've learned a lot. It's really helpful to learn phrases that I can use in everyday situations and I noticed that I started using them! The lessons are interesting and I learnt a lot about different things, like cultures, contemporary affairs, languages and so on. It broadens my mind and gives me some ideas when I interact with others in various informal conversations. A thought-provoking Two Step Speaking course was interesting and although I'm sort of still in search of what I wish and able to do in the future and how best to realize myself I felt encouraged to make goals in my life and tried various different things to achieve them. I feel thankful to Julian for the work he does, ideas and skills he has to support others in learning English."

"I can learn in a well-structured and no-bullshit way"

I've been joining EES for 3 months and this has been so far my best investment decision in language education. When I say 'investment', it doesn't only mean the 'money' but also means the time I contribute to the learning experience. I'm not a dull person, but if the thing I learn doesn't make sense nor has unacceptable flaws in itself, I can never make any progress in doing so. On the other hand, I can learn something well-structured and non-bullshit in a super fast way. Extraordinary English Speakers is exactly the place to be. I'll look out for you in the community soon. ; )

"EES helped me to speak up during meetings at work as a Banker in US"

"I have been EES member since March 2015. Julian is not only my English teacher but also my life coach! First of all, he helped me to speak up during meetings at work as a Banker in US. Second of all, I tried many things including teaching Japanese on youtube and started earning money as a side business aside from my full-time job as a banker thanks to Julian's encouragement. I have learned that English is a tool to do something we want to do. I am thankful to have you as my English teacher and coach."

"You learn real spoken English"

I've been a EES member for a year and a half now. I've always found Julian's lessons very interesting, you learn real spoken English, the English people speak that you do not learn in any book and nobody teaches you. His method is very effective: it allows you to work on your own, and practice speaking even if there's not a native around. The lessons are always interesting, motivating and funny. Yes, I think I've learnt a lot, now when somebody talks to me in English I understand immediately, and what is more important the answers come to my mind without thinking ... I'm very glad I'm an EES member.
