Course Description

You have studied English for many years, and you know you know the language. Yet when you get in front of a native English speaker, out of shyness and fear, you are unable to speak English with confidence. Think of all the opportunities, at parties, at school, that you had to converse fluently in English... and yet you didn't. Is this you? If so, then stop and think how great it would be to lose this shyness and fear, and gain confidence and start conversing with native English speakers. This one day workshop will show you many techniques to overcome what stops you from being relaxed and natural in front of native speakers. You'll also practice the techniques that you have acquired, and be that fearless person you want to be.
