Learn to speak English clearly with confidence! My classes are very focused your conversational skills. We will practice speaking English. We will practice pronunciation in English. We will practice having a conversation in English. I want you to feel confident in speaking English.
I have had the opportunity to teach communication skills in English many times through my journeys over the past 40 years. All the teachings I have offered have been highly focused on "Conversational English" and have ranged from teaching pre-school children to university professionals. My first experiences with non-native speakers was in Japan. With English language training from Canada, I was able to hold many private classes for people of all ages. When I returned to Canada, I began teaching people from all over the world and now as I have recently move to Brazil, I am assisting enthusiasts here.
I teach confidence building in communicative language skills. I know the biggest blockage from learning a language is confidence. The pronunciation in English can be challenging. At first people may not understand you and it is easy to get discouraged.
I will teach you conversational skills in your ability no matter what stage you are. Through various communication games we will work on comprehension in vocabulary, repetition, constant encouragement, pronunciation skills and focus on specialized topics.
I like to make the session fun as well as resourceful so that you feel like you are leaving with the ability to move forward in your language skills.
Each student will be treated differently depending on needs and desired outcomes. We will discuss this at the beginning of the first class to make sure we are both on the same page. And if you do not know yet, that is okay, learning English is a step by step process of practice, practice, practice. I will give you matras each lesson so that you become excellent at phrases that will never leave you!
I have experience working with people from all over the world. I really look forward to meeting you and helping you learn to speak English as smoothly as a native speaker!
