Methodology

Duration : Bootcamp = 1 hour. Review of videotape = 1 hour - Price : $100.00 - Place : Pittsburgh (15207)ESLIRL (ESL In Real Life) asks. . .

- HOW WELL DO YOU *REALLY* SPEAK ENGLISH? -
SIGN UP FOR AN ESL "CONVERSATION BOOTCAMP" EXPERIENCE TO FIND OUT.

YOU: you've studied English for years. Your grammar is great, you know tons of useful words, and your friends are all impressed by how well you speak. But: how well would you do in a conversation with native speakers if you were attending a meeting or party in the US?

ESLIRL (ESL In Real Life) helps people learning American English answer this question by participating in a "CONVERSATION BOOTCAMP" EXPERIENCE, where they can test their ability to understand and converse with 2 native speakers of English.

After signing up for your Conversation Bootcamp you'll:
1 - receive a confirmation email;
2 - meet with 2 or 3 native speakers via Skype or Zelle; and
3 - enjoy a fast, fun, and challenging hour-long conversation with:
-an expert ESL teacher/linguist and
-one or two additional native speakers who might be--a taxi driver, a professional gardener, a college student, a nurse, a make-up artist, a cook, or an engineer, etc.; then,
4 - a couple of days later, receive a written report of your main strengths and weaknesses (in grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, and conversation skills), along with examples of each;
5 - clients who want to do so can then meet with the ESL instructor again to watch the videotape, discuss confusing points, and practice questions or comments client could have said.

The ESLIRL "Conversation "Bootcamp" service is offered by Nancy Downes (MA Linguistics, TESOL Certification, MAPW)--a linguist and expert ESL teacher who, for over 20 years, has through her small business Edits International, offered a variety of ESL services (document editing, conversation coaching, and presentation preparation. etc.) that "help people find the words to succeed."
