Need a partner for English speaking practice?

If you're wondering "how can I improve my English speaking skills?", then there's a really simple answer...

 

By having conversations. Conversations with someone whose native language is English.  

For almost three years I've been working as an English conversation partner, using Skype, Zoom and Google Meet to talk to people across Europe.  

It's important to say I'm not a teacher. I'm not even a tutor. But what I am is someone who talks for a living. I know how to chat!

Using one of my clients as an example - we've tried two methods of conversation.

 

The first is where we pick topics and then talk about them. This is good IF you know something about the topics!

 

The second method is where we just start talking and see where it takes us. This way has proved much more beneficial. It vastly increases the vocabulary we're likely to use in a session; it encourages fast thinking as we never know what's coming next; and it improves the fluidity of the conversation - it makes it more natural. 

Of course, I'm happy with whichever method you prefer.

You can use English conversation practice for interviews, holidays, business trips, studying abroad or simply to brush up on your existing knowledge.

So, if you're looking for an English conversation partner to help you, I'm here... virtually!

I'm available for 30 or 60 minute sessions, for as many or as few bookings as you need. Feel free to get in touch or book using one of the options below. If you do book, I'll get in touch afterwards to arrange a mutually agreeable date and time for the session. 

If you'd prefer to meet me first, we can do that too! I offer a free 20 minute session so you can see if we get along. After all, not everybody likes everybody, but I am VERY friendly, honest! You can book that below too. Again, I'll get in touch to discuss a date and time.
