How will this course help me?
If you have good ability in English but you lack confidence in your spoken English, then this course is definitely for you. The teacher will motivate and encourage you in your everyday English and expand your phrasal vocabulary. We will use the valuable time in class to actively work together to improve your spoken English.

Will I spend a lot of time on grammar?
No! The teacher will assist you by correcting grammar mistakes and by demonstrating the correct way to use grammar in spoken English during active speaking sessions in class. The same will be done with pronunciation. We will also be using more advanced structures such as the present perfect continuous during conversation tasks to boast self-confidence when speaking with native speakers.

What will I achieve by taking this course?
The aim of this course is to improve your self-confidence when speaking English. You will expand your vocabulary and use of phrasal expressions, and you will learn how to be more confident and assertive in everyday English communication. You will also improve your ability to be interactive using informal English, which will make speaking English more enjoyable.
