Read & Converse

Speak with confidence

Do you struggle with pronunciation and confidence in speaking? Do you want to increase your English vocabulary and comprehension?

This course aims to provide a book-club-inspired class where students will be immersed into the world of English language and literature, the culture of reading, and conversational English.

It helps the students to increase and improve the use of a broader range of vocabulary, evaluate and analyze themes relating back to contemporary ideas, and increase overall fluency.
