Intermediate Conversation Class – Online with Iain Howieson: beginning 23 October 2023

This online evening conversation class will be taught from 19:00 to 20:30 on Monday evenings (eight weeks).

Partially in response to the difficulties in maintaining conversation skills in the language within the community, these online evening classes are aimed at intermediate learners. With focus on a different subject each week, these classes provide an opportunity to expand vocabulary and explore idiomatic phrases, whilst building confidence in your use of the language. With a limited class size to allow interaction, there will be opportunity to explore and discuss different ways to talk about everyday subjects.
