Intensive Course – Conversation & Speaking Skills UK

About this course

This course is designed for learners who wish to improve their fluency in both formal and informal English. We have combined general English morning classes which focus on the four main skills of reading, writing, speaking and listening, with the academic elective of Conversation and Speaking Skills.

This elective offers students the opportunity to concentrate fully on their conversation and speaking skills. Our afternoon group classes offer a motivating environment where students can develop their fluency and increase their confidence in speaking. Task-based group and pair work provide an essential opportunity for students to challenge themselves and further develop their communication skills.

Our varied activity programme offers students the chance to practise their conversational English by joining other Emerald Junior students in our schedule of afternoon cultural activities and weekend full-day excursions.

Absolutely everything was perfect – the location, the staff, the food (amazing), the activities – it was all just superb. We are so pleased. We had a truly wonderful stay and can’t wait to come back next year. Thank you, it was just perfect.
