Hola a todos!

It has been a different holiday for me and my family as Rosario has arrived on 24 Dec! Gracias for all your likes and messages on our Facebook page! We are well and very happy!! This is a photo of my two girls… Catalina (5) and Rosario (almost 3 weeks)…
Conversation classes starting this Wednesday
We are still receiving enrolments for these 3 classes starting on this coming Wed. We have 2 groups: Conversation for Beginners and Conversation for Intermediate. Please contact Laura if you are not sure the levels are suitable for you; we carefully take students according to their levels and abilities so please enquire.
Conversation for Beginners is a guided class. You will be practicing content seen in Beginners courses. That means conversation will be restricted to be used in real life situations: introducing yourself in a pub to a new friend; inviting someone to do something; buying at a shop; exchanging money; solving possible problems during your holidays at a hotel, camping ground; booking an excursion; etc. The grammar and vocabulary used is recycled from our Beginners courses.
Conversation for Intermediate is for some Pre-Intermediate and Intermediate students. The focus will be discussing interesting topics which will help you mainly to reinforce past tenses.
We do encourage you to enrol to these classes as they will help you with your speaking ability and also to revise what you have seen before. Students who have attended these classes have told us they found them really useful… come and try them for yourself!
