How do you know your lesson is guaranteed?
I lead a conversation based on your interests, work and hobbies. You will learn new vocabulary and I'll correct your errors, if you like. I have lists of topics, human resources questions, interview questions, exam speaking test questions -- you will be surprised how fast an hour can go and how much you'll enjoy talking about your life in English :-) I modulate / adjust my speaking speed and complexity to suit different people. This session is about systematic but personalized vocabulary learning and error feedback via friendly but focused discussions. These sessions create the conditions where gaps in grammar mastery create good conditions for learning i.e. we'll spend a few minutes on grammar when and where it's needed.In this way, we end up using a mix of tenses and structures in a real context, you have an experienced instructor giving feedback and adjusting (dialing) the difficulty of the exchange (up or down) in real-time. I will bring up grammar points and new vocabulary at opportune moments. This gives the opportunity for good feedback + consolidation of what intermediate students are (usually) already familiar with. We will pay attention to how spoken discourse works, notice "chunks" rather than words, work through mis-communications, manage vocabulary gaps, 'noticeg' how phrasal verbs work in real time, stop sometimes to take 5 minutes to review and practice a new structure, turn basic sentences into more natural, complex expressions; replacing simple objects/subjects with more complex noun phrases, etc. I use materials, role-plays, visuals, videos on an individualized basis. Sessions are 55 min / 85 min
