Basic Conversational English

(Lo Basico de English Conversional)

Course description:

In this class, we will explore the basics of casual conversational English. You will learn how to speak in an informal setting among your peers and friends. You will also learn the culture through the popular music, Social Media expressions and acronyms, as well as texting.

En esta clase, exploraremos los fundamentos del inglés conversacional casual. Usted aprenderá a hablar en un ambiente informal entre sus compañeros y amigos. También aprenderá la cultura a través de la música popular, expresiones de medios sociales y siglas, así como mensajes de texto!

Teaching approach:

So many classes offer English that you can use, yet you sound foreign due to the expressions and idioms you use. This class will get you speaking and sounding like a native speaker. We will focus on Vowel sounds to try to escape from a noticeable accent.

Hi Students! My name is Matthew, I am delighted and thrilled to teach and tutor your English skills! My goal in teaching is to get you as close to fluent as possible. I am originally from Chicago IL, and live in New York City. I have a Bachelors Degree from Syracuse University and a Masters Degree from Manhattan School of Music. As you can probably guess, my interest is in language and Music. I am a professional opera singer as well as a teacher.

Learning to speak English is a challenge in itself; I like to work on casual conversational English, as well as a more professional setting English. If you are a musician, we will work on English used in rehearsal settings to make sure that you fully understand the terminology and direction. I am absolutely thrilled to work with you and I hope to help you get your English better than ever before! Age does not matter, it is never too late to learn!
