Do you find it difficult to go shopping, or go to a restaurant or just ordering coffee? If this is you this course is for you! This course, conducted by a qualified TESOL teacher, will enhance your verbal proficiency, reducing those barriers. Through stimulating discussion, listening and speaking activities your pronunciation, understanding and confidence will be improved.
