These are practical lessons intended to improve conversational ability, pronunciation, and grammar in daily conversation, and is especially helpful for those who have difficulty in expressing themselves orally in a foreign language.  

Conversation A2-B1 is designed for those who have completed course A2 at our school (or completed the book "Contact! 1"), or are at level A2/B1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR).

The course is eight weeks long (8 sessions). Sessions are held once a week. Each session consists of 2 lesson hours (each of 45 minutes). The course covers 16 lesson hours.
