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, personal experiences, or readings, etc. Expect impromptu mini-lessons as needed. Any level of speaking ability is welcome; students should have solid inventory of basic vocabulary and structures and be able to string three or four words together in 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.
