English Conversation Courses

Spanish

Would you like to speak more English before you move up to the next level, or is your fluency not yet adequate enough? Whether you would like to have an easier conversation with your in-laws, or better master the language for study or work, a conversation course in English offers the solution!

During the course, we work together to improve your speaking skills. During the six lessons you will work practically with the language through various exercises such as role plays, language games, theme cards and question-and-answer exercises. The course aims to help you to speak more fluently and confidently. In this way, you expand your vocabulary and repeat, practise and improve grammar knowledge that you have already studied.

This course offers you the ideal opportunity to learn to speak English better together with your fellow course members in an accessible way!
