Big Brain Languages aims to stamp out the shyness attached to speaking at every level. We want our students to be able to interact with people in everyday situations, and be able to express their ideas and opinions in English. In order to build up conversation confidence and competence, our lessons will involve:
- The use of online material for conversational exercises such as photographs, news articles, film clippings, book reviews and videos.
- Practising key speaking skills such as persuasion, debating, description, expressing opinions, negotiating, responding to questions, giving instructions and making commands.
- Conversation activities such as role-play and problem-solving tasks.
- The use of idioms and expressions as well as conversation starters to add creativity and spontaneity to communication.
