Intensive course of spoken English
Do you want to improve your speaking and listening skills? Do you travel abroad for work or on vacation and want to communicate comfortably? Then the talking club is for you! The Conversation club provides students with the opportunity to practice role-playing in a wide variety of situations related to travel, work, and everyday life. The teachers are native English speakers with many years of experience and international qualifications.
The ability to express our thoughts in accordance with the image of ourselves that we form in the eyes of others. In other words, be able to easily connect «a couple of words», while not feeling like a child, but a person whose words are listened to.
Our course will help you develop this skill by:
1. Expand your vocabulary and deepen your grammar knowledge to meet your inner needs.
2. Mastering your voice system-pronunciation, intonation-allows you to convey the emotional shades of the message and achieve the desired effect.
The main means of acquiring these qualities and skills, in our opinion, are creative tasks. Instead of the dry and formal literacy requirement of the traditional approach, these tasks invite you into an exciting game of self-discovery in a new language. The goal of the game is to accurately formulate your thoughts through the search for your own expressive means. The ultimate goal is to be effective and successful in self-expression.
Every utterance is always made with the expectation of a certain reaction and thus is a link in the chain of interrelated speech acts. In other words, dialogue as a «verbal ping-pong» requires participants to be able to accept and reflect each other’s «feed».
Our course will help you improve your «game class» by increasing your arsenal of techniques, namely:
1. The ability to develop and maintain the dynamics of spontaneous dialogue.
2. The ability to see and hear your interlocutor here and now in order to perceive his messages not only on the verbal level, but also to be able to read the meanings transmitted through body language: intonation, facial expressions, gestures, posture, distance.
3. Use and / or develop the extroverted component of your nature through openness to social contact.
4. The principle of give&take interaction is partnership as the ability to be a good conversationalist who will always come to the rescue, and will not pull the blanket over himself. We all know the people who «turn us on «and those who»turn us off».
The main tool that develops these qualities and skills, in our experience, are the techniques of acting and improvisation.
Our definition of conversation / conversation:
A verbal exchange of information, opinions, attitudes, feelings, emotions, characterized by spontaneity and the absence of a predetermined direction and structure. The main purpose of such interaction is to build human relationships.
Conversation is like an «umbrella», under the dome of which all the well – known communication genres can fit-small talk, chatting, discussion, gossiping, argument, dispute, story-telling, banter, teasing, joking, etc.; our course is like a «platform» where you can hone your art of the interlocutor.
The main condition for the development of this set of skills is the social environment. Therefore, our course is an invitation to a circle of people who are focused on interested communication with each other. In other words, it is water that you cannot learn to swim without entering it.
— this is the intensity of the sessions. Everyday classes do not aim to learn as much material as possible in the shortest possible time, which, as a rule, leads to the effect of «indigestion». On the contrary, our material is just an excuse, a starting point for the maximum disclosure of your communicative abilities in a new language. Intensity is a means of «forging while it’s hot», a condition for the transition of quantity to quality.
Interaction of all elements in the course structure.
We do not consider it expedient and effective to develop the three main elements in a linear and progressive manner. Therefore, each session necessarily includes all the elements in the required proportion at the moment.
In addition, you can book individual classes according to your schedule.
