Course discussion includes common American expressions and cultural elements. This course will teach you when and how to use common expressions in a conversational context. This course is customized to each student's needs and interests.
This course is mostly conversational American English. I use a variety of texts and some online grammar resources as needed or as requested by the student.
Each lesson is tailored to your interests and ability. Recent lessons I've given have included: pronunciation exercises, phrasal verbs, reading and reading comprehension, and conversation practice. I incorporate a lot of conversation on current events. I'm well versed in specialized vocabulary such as medical and computer terminologies.
