Are you looking to extend your speaking skills in a relaxed environment? Join John and others in this loosely structured class with conversations based on everyday situations, world events, readings or common interests. These may also be suggested by class members or develop freely. Impromptu mini lessons as needed, as well reference materials. Any level of speaking ability is welcome; however, students should have solid inventory of basic vocabulary and structures and be able to string three or four words together is some meaningful way. Efforts will be made to group speakers of similar ability, but participants should also expect to be the model for a less skilled speaker or the novice speaker challenged by more skilled speakers. No class on Oct. 31 due to Halloween; makeup class will be held on Nov 1.
