Description

Learners / speakers who are pre-intermediate and above will get the most benefit from this session.

I'll lead a session based on an academic or professional article OR based on a short video and transcript. We will review vocabulary and idioms and discuss the topic. If you're maxed out in terms of making progress (stuck at what they call the intermediate plateau) ... working with authentic materials to learn natural language / grammatical structures in situ is the next step.

I curate videos for this session at a wordpress.com blog. There is a welcome page on my blog that will tell you how to prepare for these sessions. In order to extract maximum value from this session, please read the article / watch the video a few times beforehand, and come to the sessions with questions.

Please book this session *at least* 48 hours in advance so you have (lots of) time to watch the video and review the transcripts / articles before the session.

I occasionally do videos from other websites by special request, for current students. I normally use the videos from my site because I choose them carefully based on their language content.
