Quotes can be anything from one word, to one or two lines from a text. So I could begin answering the question with...

The advert makes the acquiring of expertise in English sound very quick, straight forward and easy.

The technique is said to be 'simple' and 'swift'.

Alternatively, I could write:

The advert claims that I can learn to become an expert in English easily.

There is a simple technique for acquiring a swift mastery of good English.
