Conversation Courses/Accent Reduction

In general conversation courses, we will work together to develop your listening and speaking skills using a variety of topics, depending on your interests. Possible topics might include culture, travel, music, human rights, women’s rights, the environment, education, politics, history, animal science, cinema, fitness, and nutrition. To encourage productive conversation practice during class time, preparation work will often be assigned prior to class in the form of online news articles, documentaries, movies, Netflix programs, etc.

Depending on the learner’s needs, lessons may also focus on accent reduction with an emphasis on using appropriate stress, emphasis, and rhythm in addition to tackling any problematic areas of pronunciation.
