and Speaking


Listening Skills

Let’s be honest. It is difficult to start a conversation or join one if you cannot understand what is being talked about. It takes both listening and speaking skills to communicate with people. I can help you with daily phrases and idioms that can be hard to understand. 

Even as an English teacher with two degrees, when I arrived at the airport in New York, I had an embarrassing experience. It was because I did not know the everyday phrases people use to communicate.

Living in the United States for over 20 years, I have learned many of these phrases, and I can help you with that.

I have some techniques I can teach you to improve your listening skills so you will be confident in your interactions with others, formally or informally.

Speaking Skills

Speaking can be a roadblock to many language learners. We cannot say we know a language if we cannot speak it. We may know of a language in terms of its basic structure, how it sounds, or how it looks on paper. 

I have so far studied German, French, and Spanish. I cannot say I know them; I cannot speak in them fluently. I can read and understand the meaning of written materials. I can guess at the meanings of words. Even in some, I can understand what is spoken to a small degree. However, speaking is key.

Speaking is one of the active skills of languages. You need to be talking to someone. You need to open your mouth and speak words! I have been through it. I have done it. I am a proficient speaker in English right now.

I have some tools for you to get confidence and improve your speaking skills. Trust me; it can be done. Let me be your guide!
