Conversation courses (focus on speaking)

Only for students who have a good knowledge of the language. Some students have good passive knowledge of a language, but find it difficult to express themselves. This course will help you to make your speaking more relaxed and to express your opinions with more confidence. According to your interests and your needs, at the beginning of the course, you will choose together with your teacher a range of topics to deal with each week and you will receive steady feedback on your progress. In this way you will be able to improve your oral understanding and production abilities in various contexts, widen your vocabulary and acquire more confidence.
