This class focuses on speaking in real-world situations, but also includes listening, vocabulary, reading, writing and grammar. Each week there is a different topic that relates to real life scenarios you encounter while using English in every day life.
There are role-plays, debates and discussions about current topics and current events, travel and survival English, English for work, slang and idioms, conversational English and much more. These skills will help you to speak English better in every aspect of your life.
