A Typical English Conversation Class
Most classes start with greetings and general conversation about your recent activities. After the ‘chat’ we go on to talk about the day’s topic in general terms. We’ll consider things like:
* the size of the issue
* the importance of the issue
* alternative ways of addressing the issue
* potential solutions
With that overview we’ll go on to look at examples closer to home. We might talk about:
* personal experiences and how you are personally impacted by the issue
* examples you’ve noticed
* contributions you’d like to offer.
Before each class, we will send you an article about the class’ topic so that you can familiarize yourself with the vocabulary.
Current Conversation Class topics
Current topics include:
* The corona virus

* Working from Home
