All activities within the workshops are designed to remove that uncomfortable feeling we get when speaking in front of a group of new people. It’ll be fun, engaging and at the same time incredibly beneficial for your confidence levels.
We will be discovering language LIVE within the workshops through activities that engage you with people out in the public. No studying text books. This is spoken, day-to-day language that will help you sound more natural when communicating in English.
Every workshop will be focusing on improving the skills that are essential for a high band score in the IELTS speaking exam. If you are preparing for the exam then this is a great way to improve your score.
Please Note: You do not need to be preparing for the IELTS speaking exam to benefit from this course.
Countries Taught In
I've been working privately with amazing students like you for the past six years, from all over the world. Here are three things I've discovered after teaching over 4,000 lessons:
The Welcome Session
There are up to 11 new people for you to meet. They all share your passion for learning english. The focus will be on making memorable connections with them as you are going to be with them for the next 6 weeks. Don’t worry though, I won’t be expectng you to tell us your life story. The language exercises chosen will make it feel natural and comfortable for all.
The Team Communication Session
Now that we know each other we can begin to push your comfort zone to help you see what you are capable of to increase that confidence of yours when speaking in a team. We will spend half the workshop in the venue and the other half out in the CBD. You will be doing speaking challenges in a small group and then reuniting with everyone else to see what each other have discovered.
NOTE: For those preparing for the IELTS Exam, this is going to be focusing on the skills required to do well in Part 1 of the IELTS speaking exam.
The Fluency Session
In this workshop we will be doing exercises that focus on your fluency rather than worrying about mistakes. We want to give you the chance to get ‘in the flow’ with your English. So, we’ll be aiming to get you speaking for a longer period of time than you are used to.
NOTE: For those preparing for the IELTS Exam, this is going to be focusing on the skills required to do well in Part 2 of the IELTS speaking exam.
The Review & Improve Session
By now we’ve created a huge amount of phrases and information to recap and review. This workshop will give you the chance to take as much as you possibly can from the course and give you great options to help you improve your learning style in the future.
The Interview Session
A great way to develop speaking skills is to take on the role of an interviewer or an interviewee. Together we will create some random fictional characters to then pretend to be and practice speaking with feedback and a vocabulary review towards the end.
NOTE: For those preparing for the IELTS Exam, this is going to be focusing on the skills required to do well in Part 3 of the IELTS speaking exam.
The Presentation Session
For this last session we will be working on the skills required to be a powerful presenter. There are some really useful things we can go over here which will help reduce those nerves and give you the opportunity to present with much more confidence.
NOTE: For those preparing for the IELTS Exam, this is going to be focusing again on the skills required to do well in Part 2 of the IELTS speaking exam.
Charlie loves teaching, and when someone is as enthusiastic as he is, it is impossible to have a bad experience.
