How the conversation sessions work

This is not just an opportunity to talk in English! These sessions will be structured, providing you with lots of opportunity to learn, as well as having fun and meeting new people! Although these sessions will be more relaxed than a formal ESOL or IELTS class, you will pick up new language, improve your pronunciation and fluency and develop your confidence and speaking skills overall.


Every week, we will discuss a different topic. This will often be based on a reading text, such as a newspaper article or blog post, a short video or a sound file that will be sent to you before the class. You will discuss questions, ideas and language in pairs or groups and you will also complete activities to learn or review different areas of vocabulary and grammar. New language and personalised feedback will be provided during each class.

All sessions will be run by a highly experienced and fully qualified English language teacher.

Coffee, tea and a good old-fashioned British biscuit available at every session!


How the childcare works

Are you at home all day with your toddler or pre-schooler and would like to get out? 

Come along to our new Conversation Club in Stichley. Meet new people from all over the world, practise your English and learn lots of new vocabularly whilst your children are being entertained and looked after by a trained professional in the same room. And this childcare is FREE!

Gemma is the playworker who will look after your child. She will stay in the room where the conversation class is taking place. That way, you can keep an eye on your little one whilst they are playing. It’s a big room with lots of toys to keep them entertained!

Gemma looks after my children at their after-school club. She’s a wonderful, patient and caring lady with:

  • several years experience in nurseries and other play settings
  • an Enhanced DBS check
  • a Level 2 qualification in Paediatrics First Aid
  • A Level 3 qualification in Advanced Safeguarding

With Gemma, your children couldn’t be in safer hands!
