English Coaching: Your Fluent Conversations
A weekly private speaking program on Zoom where you’ll talk about topics you’re passionate about, have structured weekly speaking practice and increase the number of subjects you feel fluent and confident speaking about in English. I recommend 1-2 lessons per week.
The results you'll get from Your Fluent Conversations.
Have new confidence in yourself as a speaker, and feel more comfortable in conversations with native speakers at work and in social settings.
Clear pronunciation & grammar so that others can understand you more easily.
A deeper understanding of culture in the U.S.
Our lessons include:
Weekly 50-minute conversation sessions on Zoom on your topics so that you can start really improving your confidence in real-life conversations with English speakers.
Homework and lesson notes with feedback on your lesson and practice activities in Google Docs--to help you improve your English where you need it the most and get rid of errors you’ve been making out of habit.
Your choice of motivating topics from a list curated for you-- list like taking a personality quiz, being a good listener, being assertive --so that you learn to talk about something you feel passionate about so you can learn more effectively, stay motivated and use your English for conversations on topics you care about.
Real-world reading and or listening materials like newspaper articles, TED-talks or online quizzes chosen just for you by an experienced teacher who knows about US culture. Starting with these will help you build up your vocabulary and confidence before you start speaking about a topic. And other English speakers around you will probably be talking about too!
WhatsApp Speaking Program
The program is asynchronous. What does that mean? You will complete your assignments from the comfort of your home at your own pace without scheduled 1:1 time. You will be able to practice for short periods of time whenever you want every day.
How does it work?
You will record yourself answering prompts that I’ve chosen for you. You will answer two prompts per week during your own time. I believe that this is a natural way to practice listening and speaking in real life compared to studying English from a textbook.
The results you'll get from my WhatsApp Speaking Program
Practice using the correct verb tenses in English to talk about something meaningful to you and relevant in your life.
Improve your accuracy in speaking because recording yourself will give you time to think.
Become more effective at noticing your mistakes and self-correcting because you’ll have the chance to listen to your recordings and re-record.
The 3-wk programs include:
A workbook with weekly prompts, templates, and space to take notes. You'll receive the workbook by email a few days before the program start date.
Personalized feedback over WhatsApp.
Soundcloud playlist for all prompt examples.
Video and/or blog posts for specific prompts.
Next 3-wk program start date: January 17th
