English Advanced Conversation

Join me and some other speakers of English as a second language to practice your English speaking skills.

What you'll learn

In this class we will look at the linguist aspects of the English language such as vocabulary, phonetics and phonology and grammar. As we discuss the topics and share view points, we will also consider effective communication skills and strategies and active listening.
The class is 60 minutes long. You will be sent a lesson plan beforehand to prepare for the class. This lesson plan is based on an online video or article. The plan is structured to help you navigate the material and note answers to questions that will be used in the discussion. The class ends with a feedback session and a short analysis on notes taken. This is a relaxed environment where all views and opinions are appreciated and respected. It is an ideal opportunity to experience intercultural communication with your teacher and your peers.

This class is perfect for

Your Teacher

[object Object]
I started teaching in Australia and New Zealand in 2007 after receiving my certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL). In 2008 I moved to Madrid in Spain where I taught General English, Business English and Cambridge Exam preparation for just over three years. During my time in Spain I became a Cambridge oral examiner for PET and KET exams, and I completed my Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults (DELTA) with Cambridge University. After leaving Spain, I returned to Ireland to complete a Masters in Teaching English as a Foreign Language & Linguistics. I was awarded a First Class Honours Degree for my MA by the University of Limerick. Since then I have been working in the higher education, specialising in English for Academic Purposes, Academic IELTS preparation and pre-sessional academic programmes. Since completing my MA I have worked in the University of Limerick Ireland, University of Bath UK, University of Bristol UK, and Aoyama Gakuin University in Tokyo Japan. I am currently studying a Diploma in Technical Enhanced Learning (TEL) with the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUIG)
