English is the language of travel and speaking is the hardest part for many learners. Your ability to converse is the key that unlocks independent travel and new friendships. The best way to improve speaking is to practice! My lessons focus on pronunciation and grammar through topics of travel and music. I can also help you prepare for your exam and speak like an American. See you in class :)
