This is a new group where people will have the opportunity to improve their listening and speaking skills on all levels. These topics will help you to become more comfortable speaking with native English speakers, as well as help you in school, in your career and in life.
Each topic will be held on a Thursday and will meet for 80 minutes. The topic will be introduced, broken down and explained, and then practiced for everyday life. You do not have to attend every Thursday, but the more you attend, the faster you can improve.
Classes are being kept small so everyone can have many opportunities to speak and as the teacher, I can help you each improve at a faster rate.
As this is a new, specialized group, members of the meet up who attend, will pay $35. Classes can be paid for (in cash) on the day of class.
The topics will be prepared by me, Judith (Organizer). I have over 10 years of education experience and have helped many people improve their listening and speaking skills. In fact, I've helped several get into top universities in Boston and land (get) jobs with top companies in America. In turn, below are 5 topics. If these classes are successful, then I will add more.
The topics are:
1) The Top 10 Idioms for Everyday Use - June 27, 2013
2) Commonly Used Phrasal Verbs - July 11, 2013
3) Cliches & Coined Phrases - July 18, 2013
4) Present Perfect Tenses Made Easy - July 25, 2013
5) Slang & Colloquialisms
6) Who vs. (To) Whom and Which vs. That

If You Have a Sudden Change In Your Plans
I understand that sometimes life gets busy and things that we don't expect, pop up in our lives. If you think you are going to be late, please post a message on here so I know when to expect you. If for some reason, you are not able to make it, please post a message not less than 2 hours before the time we are scheduled to meet. This will help me best plan my schedule and maximize the time I am able to spend with you.
I look forward to helping you all improve your English!
