Learn helpful content for your everyday life!

Conversa’s classes are designed to prepare students for daily communication in English! We provide students with practical and modern language training for all levels of English speakers. All classes include grammar, reading, writing, listening, vocabulary, and most importantly, SPEAKING English!

Each 1.5 hour class begins by focusing on a common English conversation. You will learn vocabulary about this conversation, and practice specific grammar or verb tenses in order to talk about this conversation. Activities will sometimes require listening, reading, or writing, but they will always require speaking! You will take a quick break in the middle of class to have a snack and coffee. The second half of the class is focused on practicing how to have these conversations in your every day life. You will practice speaking with your teacher and fellow students. And, we always end class with a fun activity or a game!

Communicative Language Teaching

The Communicative Language Teaching (CLT) methodology in teaching English as a Second Language is student-centered and emphasizes the use of language for communication in real-life situations.

  • Immersion – taught in the target language – English!
  • Conversational – focused on helping students understand + speak the target language quickly
  • Student-Centered – students actively participate in every learning activity + the teacher facilitates
  • Personal – learners are encouraged to incorporate their personal experiences in order to learn content that is helpful for everyday life
