Communicate Like an American I

This class is for students interested in learning how to communicate like an American. The focus here is on expanding vocabulary, idioms, useful everyday expressions, and even local New York lingo. Students work on body language and eye contact, with real-life situations emphasized, as well as an understanding of cultural sensitivity and American humor. Students are active participants, engaged in exercises and role-plays, and receive individualized feedback from the instructor. This course is for students in the High Intermediate level. Use our easy Course Enrollment Guide to determine which level is right for you and then register online. Any questions?
