CONVERSATION

The Standard Conversation Course in English is designed for all those adults and educational professionals who want to focus their learning on the oral aspect of the language. Unlike many other conversation courses, our Standard Conversation Course in English not only aims to improve oral expression and the acquisition of specific vocabulary depending on each real life contextualised situation, but our methodology, centred on phonetic learning and correct intonation will also allow you to achieve that much desired “oral fluency”.

It will enable you to interact correctly in English, because conversation in English is not only speaking in English, it means learning the use of specific structures, idioms, listening and speaking periods, voice modulation….In short, all those pragmatic aspects of the language that provide the message we are communicating with its human quality.

How do we achieve this?

  • Free level test and personalised academic guidance from the beginning based on the test results
  • Team of native teachers, qualified and with extensive experience in teaching English as a foreign language
  • Interactive and dynamic lessons in small groups focused on vocabulary acquisition, pronunciation improvement, intonation and non verbal aspects of communication in English
  • Continuous assessment and feedback from the teachers
  • Course materials provided by the teacher
  • Activities dealing with current topics that contextualise the use of English
  • Media Library available for reference or to borrow complementary material to take home
  • Free access to the Virtual Campus, where you can complement your on-school work, extend and share your knowledge, have access to multimedia materials and continue with your progress from wherever you are
