What you will achieve
Conversation Class is for you if you ...
English with Kerin & Elisa
A few years ago, Elisa and I worked closely together at the school I created in Florence.
We spent a lot of time creating original courses for our students, one of which was Conversation Class: a course specially designed for advanced learners.
Our students loved it!
Now we are putting our heads together again to bring you a brand new course: an upgraded, digital version of Conversation Class to suit the times we are living in.
So what does this mean? …
What makes our Conversation Class different?
We know that nowadays many of you are now working from home. That means you have more flexibility.
However, we also know that taking an hour out of your day for English can be problematic.
The solution? A blended course that allows you to do some activities alone, on your own schedule. Combined with live sessions; short enough that you can fit it into your day, long enough to be effective.
We have designed a programme that will give you a different theme each week and you’ll will focus on improving your communication skills, fluency and pronunciation while also expanding your vocabulary.
Our Advanced English Conversation Class is much more than just a chat: complete a pre-lesson activity (boosting your listening and reading skills) and then a post-class activity, again on your own schedule, so that you can develop what you learned during class. You’ll submit this task to Kerin who’ll give you personalised individual feedback to help you improve further.
Throughout the course we’ll give you honest feedback to help you take your English from GOOD to GREAT!
Conversation Class is open to everyone whose current English speaking level is upper intermediate (B2), advanced (C1) or proficient (C2)

Conversation Class is a new online speaking fluency course for people who already have a high level of English.
The course programme has been designed so that you will improve your ability to discuss complex topics beyond your comfort zone.
We cover a vast range of topics during this course from privacy to bucket lists, from food trends to the gender gap!
It works like this:
- each week you’ll get a preparation task to do on your own, any time before the lesson (it may be a video to watch, an article to read or a vocabulary exercise)
- each week take part in a live session led by Kerin or Elisa
- classes last 30 mins for 1-2 students and 40 mins for 3-4 students
- complete an optional post-lesson task to review what you learned or go deeper into a subject. Get feedback from your teacher
When you enrol on the course, you will decide the time of your class time with your teacher.
Individual lessons are available Mon-Friday between 8:00am and 6.00pm and Saturdays 10:00am-18.00pm (CET Rome time) depending on the availability of you and your teacher.
Group courses will depend on request and availability will depend on the number of students (max of 3 per group).
- You’ll need to dedicate 10-30 minutes per week for the pre-lesson task. (It will usually be around 10 minutes, but some weeks you will be asked to watch a longer video or read an article)
- You will need to dedicate 30 -40 minutes per week for the discussion lesson.
- You will need 10-15 minutes for the optional post-lesson task
You’ll need a good internet connection. Our classes will be held on Zoom
