Hi, I’m Douglas Shaw– Director and Creator of ABC English Course.
I’m not sure how you got here , but you’ll want to stay and look around if you have been trying to find the course that meets your needs and fits into your expectations.
Make a statement with your unique voice, ideas, and personality! I’ll help you develop your story with English, talk about what you do without nervously sweating, and set yourself to your zone of fluency.
You’re able to understand English, but do you know how to use it? Stick with me and I’ll teach you the tricks of the language, giving you the guidance, and find the language that makes the listener understand.
Learning a language must be fun, without, it would be very hard! My lessons are designed for the learner to be actively using English. When I’m done with you, you’re going to LOVE using English.
HI, I’M DOUGLAS SHAW AND IT IS NOT MY LIFE’S GOAL TO BECOME RICH ON THE INTERNET.
Call me crazy, but I honestly just like helping people find their way with English and help them to see the opportunities that come with having that ability and live the happiest, freest, funnest life they can. I understand that today’s schedules usually don’t meet with the many different language programs. It can be difficult to relocate or adjust your schedules in order to pursue your goals. Maybe you want to travel like a nomad or become a minimalist or have enough revenue to stay home with your kids. Maybe you just want to feel free and creative and do whatever you feel like every day. That’s what I’m about: the real, honest, what it takes-ness of building confidence and to support you to gain the ability with English that you have been wanting and live the happiest life.
I happen to specialize in all areas of English with powerful language skills(without being manipulative!) If there was ever a skill you needed to skyrocket your career, work or personal life, and make a bigger impact, it’s English. I can help you…
e.g. TOEFL, IBT, TOEIC, IELTS

HAVE WE MET YET? I’M DOUGLAS SHAW, THE (SELF-PROCLAIMED) ENGLISH WIZARD WHO RUNS THIS BIZ.
I started ABC English Course because of requests from many students that I was teaching in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2015 with nothing more than a few years of experience and a rebellious attitude. (I’ve lived in Indonesia since 2003). Originally, I’m from Salmon, Idaho.
Since transforming from a simple teacher to a professional English Instructor to ABC English Course (with a few skipped steps in between), I’ve worked with dozens and dozens of fabulous students , professionals, housewives, entrepreneurs on overcoming the fear of putting yourself out there and declaring your message.
With extensive experience in language + psychology and lots of training in education, I’m armed to help you gain confidence and reach the fluency in English that you desire.
FIVE THINGS ABOUT ME THAT YOU PROBABLY DON’T CARE ABOUT BUT I’M GOING TO TELL YOU ANYWAY:
The very first time I ever launched an online course in 2014 no one joined it. Not a single person! Not even my Indonesian family members! (In honesty, I had my thoughts, that at least one of my nieces or nephews might join). Since then I’ve successfully launched many courses and been helping many on building confidence.
I used to be a diesel mechanic. Say what? Yes, if you can believe it, I was working with my father on his Trucking business.
I’ve taught many different classes at government schools, private language courses and many different companies. Probably a lot more than that but I’m way too lazy to keep count.
Before I became an online instructor, I was a freelance teacher and counselor /motivator. My other business ventures have included Website design, ESL tutoring, manuscript editing (snore!).
When I was in America after my father died. Not to be a downer, but facing death of the strongest person in my life certainly affected my life path. The lesson? Life’s too short to spend waiting around for the right time to do what you want. Do it now!
