New Unit Alert: Understand Trump


Ever wanted to know how to understand President Trump’s unique turn of phrase? Well, you’re in luck because busuu are launching a new unit inspired by the 45th President of the United States of America! 

How to understand “Trumpisms”

You’ll get to know words. The best words. Not only that but we’ve translated what it means to have no ego (according to Trump), and his famous insults. It really is the best unit. My friend, who happens to be a very famous language instructor, told us it’s the best unit. It’s going to be amazing. Believe us.

With our Conversation feature, you’ll learn how to speak like a native by studying Trump Tweets. You will also learn how to identify FAKE NEWS.

I know words, I have the best words.

Show me someone without an ego, and I’ll show you a loser.

I’m, like, a really smart person.

A total lightweight.

I am worth a tremendous amount of money.


With our Vocab Trainer, you’ll learn how to make words your own. It’s gonna be yuuuuuuge. Seriously, this is bigly.

To really speak like Trump, abandon grammar and use simple adjectives. It’ll be very, very, very easy. Trust us. Just emphasise with the ‘rule of threes’.

Don’t forget about offline learning – for when Trump finally breaks and/or bans the internet!


Actions Speak Louder Than Words (Trump Body Language)

We’ll show you how to make your gestures match your speech. Hands must be held in the connecting finger and thumb post – the ‘it’s ok’ circle.

This is to convince people that it’s going to be ok. Whilst your left hand distracts them, your right hand can be signing all sorts of controversial executive orders.

Finally, when you shake hands with other world leaders, make sure you pull them in real close. And remember – never, ever, ever be the first to let go.

With these top tips, you’ll be speaking Trump in no time. And, for extra credit, why not try out our Russian courses too?
