This is Perfectly Spoken’s chosen English speaking representative who starts and finishes the session, makes sure the conversation runs smoothly and everyone feels comfortable and happy.
As many as you like. But please attend those sessions at our level and follow our ‘fair use’ policy: book sessions you can definitely attend and make the most of each one.
Yes. You can try different levels and find the level and time that works best for you. But please remember to respect other students and do not attend sessions that are really too difficult -as this can interrupt the flow of the conversation- or much too easy for you -as this can intimidate other students and stop them from speaking and contributing freely
Yes! We love you ideas and this is your opportunity to practise. We will create a board so you can post ideas for upcoming sessions.
You can attend sessions without having your camera on and you can listen to the session. However, if you wish to participate in any conversation, we would ask you to turn on your microphone and camera. It’s important that people can see the person who is speaking.
At the moment. Yes. We believe this will help some people to become comfortable and understand how the sessions work. But this also depends on the other students and if we find most other students are not comfortable with other students attending and not participating or showing themselves, then we will change this rule.
Very important question. The Conversation Café is all about creating a real-life situation which encourages speaking fluency and improves confidence. It is also about giving you a chance to meet and speak to other English language learners from our global community. There is no expert teacher to guide the practice and provide the individualised feedback and correction that students receive in a Speaking Practice group
Live Classes are a valuable complement to the self-study lessons and provide an opportunity to chat online with our expert teachers to consolidate the learning from a particular lesson and ask questions about that lesson. Practice is very controlled and the opportunities to speak are limited. The Conversation Café is all about creating the opportunity for students to improve their fluency in spoken English in a relaxed environment, where mistakes are not important. Most learners of English do not speak English with native speakers but with other non-native speakers of English. This is an excellent way to practise and become Perfectly Spoken!
