This course offers a way to smooth your everyday conversations. We focus on vocabulary, grammar, and intonation while discussing everyday topics. Also, the use of idiomatic phrases are abundant in casual conversation. I can provide some extra materials as well as an authentic dialog experience.

Teaching approach:

This course will go beyond textbooks to help students understand the nuances of spoken English. A lot of interactions between English speakers depend upon idioms and slang, which is difficult to learn from a textbook, especially since these words are always changing with current events. We first focus on basics, then advancing to understanding and using idioms and common language.
