American English Conversation Practice; Let's speak together!

Hello,

My name is Patricia; originally from the US (San Francisco, California), I am currently based in Lisbon where I offer conversation English lessons where students will have the opportunity to use and improve their speaking and listening skills.

In these one to one lessons we will work together on proper pronunciation, articulation, tone as well as grammar and vocabulary. Each class will be designed with the particular interest of the student in mind so if there's a particular goal you have, I will do my very best to help you work towards it - whether it's oral preparation for exams, for professional reasons or just social.

What I can help you with:

- Pronunciation, Articulation & Tone
- Wider Vocabulary
- Improved Grammar

Key Factors of these one to one lessons:
- Flexible private lessons - organize your classes for when it suits you and your schedule

- Goal-oriented classes - improve your conversational skills for exams, work or social reasons

- The option of learning in a group if you would like to share your lesson with family/friends/colleagues

Looking forward to speaking with you!

Kiara
English language and Conversational English Teacher
I would like to help you learn and practice the English language. At our first lesson together we will establish the level of English that you are at and what your learning style is. From there I will structure lessons accordingly and make sure that they are suited to your interests. I want you to enjoy learning English. For conversational lessons, we will talk and I will help correct your sentences at the end. For General English lessons, we can focus on grammar, punctuation, reading, writing, pronunciation, sentence forming, and anything else that you would like to know. I can also assist you in writing CV's, e-mails, and letters. I am also able to teach business English, if you have a meeting or interview coming up I can help you prepare. I can speak a very basic level of Portuguese so if you don't speak any English that is no problem at all.
