Blog series on teaching conversation classes

I’ve been teaching conversation language classes for the last 5 years in two countries (Japan and Germany).

Below is a series of blog posts designed to help the new conversation class teacher not get overwhelmed, and to make the class successful.

Starting a new conversation class – how to get the first class right with the lesson plan and handout that has worked brilliantly for me.

Choosing conversation topics need not be scary – let the students do it for you!

Improving speaking confidence in language classes is very important for a successful course.

I’ll be adding to this series over time, with actual lesson plans and a course schedule with example topics and grammar.

For a broader overview, the article “How to teach a conversation class” I wrote a few years ago year is a quick read.
