Conversational English Classes for Internationals

cec-english-class-logo-web21

Communication confidence – that is the goal of our Conversational English Classes. Based on research from linguistics, communication, and education, our classes are designed to be interactive and produce results.

Anxiety is the #1 problem people experience when learning conversational English. We provide an environment where you become friends with native speakers of English who are experienced in teaching internationals. Our instruction focuses on pronunciation, idioms, and American culture. Classroom learning is reinforced by immediately using what you learned in the lecture by practicing with friends in small groups. Come join us for an enjoyable evening of English lessons, American desserts, and great friends. A pdf file of one of our lessons can be downloaded by clicking here: Sample Lesson

Classes are free for internationals. There is no registration – just come to class and see if you improve! Lesson notes are provided at each class. Classes are held at the Baptist Student Union – across the street from UF! Address: 1604 West University Avenue. Click here for Directions / Map.

Notice: Talk Time will be 6:50 pm until 7:05 pm. The interactive lecture now begins at 7:05 pm. Talk Time is simply a time for internationals to talk informally with helpful native speakers. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to practice speaking with helpful native speakers!
