Conversation courses focus primarily on oral communication and fluency. You will improve your listening and speaking skills in a relaxed, supportive atmosphere giving you the confidence you need to express yourself in English. These courses are often taken to supplement a General English or a Business English course and will give participants that extra boost to speak with more confidence.
While lively conversation and discussion is the main aim of this course, some vocabulary and grammar may be covered to enable you to improve your speaking skills. A textbook will be provided but it will be supplemented with a range of authentic materials to cover topics reflecting the interests of the participants in the group, such as culture, travel, and current affairs.
Conversation courses are offered from B1 intermediate to C1 advanced level. Lessons during the day last 2 hours with a short break in our Lounge, giving you the opportunity to use your newly acquired skills with your classmates. And to make new friends at the same time. Some homework will be assigned but it remains optional.

‘I chose the British School because I’m living in Holland now with my husband and I need to learn English for my life here. My husband found this course on the internet. Also, the teacher is British and this is very good for me. I am very much enjoying the course because I’m learning a lot and I speak English with my partners all the day.’
‘I chose the British School because I liked a short course where I could improve my English fast. I’m enjoying the course a lot and I like the teacher as well. I will come back for the following course!’
