How does it work?

Each week we will hold a class based around a different topic. Take a look through the upcoming topics, and choose the ones that most interest you.

Individual classes cost $12. Discounted packages of 5 or 10 classes are also available.

Check out securely, and you’ll receive the invitations. The Zoom link will be inside.

Check the table below for the preparatory tasks and materials for your chosen class. These are normally short, and serve as a warm up for the class.

We’ll send you reminders in the run-up to the class. Once you’ve finished the class, you’ll receive your feedback via email.

Frequently Asked Questions

What level are these classes for?

Intermediate and above. If you are beginner, these classes are not for you (yet). 

We have plans to introduce Beginner Conversation classes soon.

What currency can I pay with?

You can only pay in USD ($). While we would love to accept other currencies, we are currently restricted by the booking technology.

What's the refund and cancellation policy?

You can cancel your session up to 48 hours before it starts and get a full refund. In the unlikely event that we cancel a lesson, we’ll refund you in full.

Can I book more than one lesson?

You’ll see all the available lessons for booking above. You can book as many as you like. We plan on offering package discounts in the future.

What's the preparatory task, and do I have to do it?

In order to vary the conversation and include various topics, each class has a preparatory task. It’s usually just a warm-up, like watching a 5 minute video, or reading an article. In order to get the most out of the classes, we highly recommend completing the task.

I'm a Pro member. Do I get a discount?

We plan to offer 20% discounts to our Pro members. Right now, we’ve just started as a pilot project, so no discounts are available. 

I'm nervous about speaking...

Everyone else is in the same boat! Our teachers include activities to break you in easily, so that you aren’t put on the spot. We strive to make the classes as comfortable as possible.

“Simply put, these are the best classes I’ve had, and I’ve had many. Our teacher clearly loves what she does and she makes everyone feel safe and comfortable. I love how patient she is, and I don’t fear classes, I look forward to them. It’s the first time I have not been filled with anxiety during class.”
