Learn Spoken English for Communication and Public Speaking
These sessions are focused on English for people who encounter challenges in speaking and communicating and lack the techniques that are used for that purpose. We would develop situational vocabulary, corresponding verbs and adverbs that help transmit more precision when speaking. Our mission would be to see where you currently are in the language, strengthen any weak points and create awareness about points that need extra attention. These classes tend to take place in a more relaxed yet fun and stimulating environment. I constantly provide feedback to students about their progress and assign homework to ameliorate the practical and theoretical aspects of the English. This class is all about making English accessible and easy to learn to all through a variety of social and interactive stimulus.. You may request a full refund and get your money after the first class if you think that this class does not suit you.

Conversational English and English Language Communication
This English language course, is mainly targeting those who would like to learn how to communicate in English, and engage in conversations smoothly. The purpose of learning any language is to eventually speak with it fluently and confidently. English language is more than that! Because it is the most spoken language in the world and it opens a huge door to get to know people from all cultures, traditions, backgrounds, beliefs, etc. Without forgetting, the high chances in finding a job when someone knows English language. Therefore, I am willing to teach you how to communicate in this language easily by emphasizing on the right articulation and pronunciation if needed.

Practice and improve your English effectively
Having followed an English training from kindergarten to high school, I want to share the bilingualism that was offered to me. Because English is linguistically a major tool and it opens many doors, I want to teach the student how to master it at best. To do this, a course divided into two equal parts, the first to learn grammar and vocabulary and the second to practice.
