Join this course run by a lovely native speaker teacher who doesn’t speak your language, and you will be learning faster in a fun and relaxed environment.

You will improve your conversation skills in an interactive way, working in plenary as well as in small groups with your teacher’s supervision.

The lessons will mainly focus on speaking, listening and pronunciation and your teacher will customise the programme according to the class’ needs, providing always new and interesting topics to discuss.
