More and more students are looking for English language classes that would focus specifically on speaking and communication. Conversation lessons and entire conversation courses are now a standard in many language schools and businesses.

But how can you tell whether your students actually improve their communication skills in your lessons? And do they expand their vocabulary and practise grammar as well?

Conversation classes are tricky, because it might seem easy to just chat for an hour and call it a conversation class. But what will it actually improve?

A student might turn up for your conversation classes every week for six months but not actually make any progress. Do you know why? And what can you do about it?

Some students might not talk at all, while others might dominate the whole class. Do you know how to give everyone a fair share of talking time? 

I will answer all of these questions and even more (problems you didn’t even realise you had!) to help you run the most effective conversation classes. Conversation classes that not only improve your students’ communication skills but also help them level up.


In this training I will share all of my 18 years of experience in teaching adults, providing you with tips and ideas that have been battle-tested by myself and hundreds of other teachers.


Training Content:

During this training session I will cover:

  • Starting off - aims and a good plan.
  • How to introduce conversation even at the lowest levels.
  • How to practise grammar in a conversation class.
  • How to introduce and practise new vocabulary in a conversation class?
  • Small talk - do we really need it and how to practise it?
  • Conversation classes - individual vs group classes. 
  • What to do if one person dominates the discussion or even the whole class?
  • What to do if someone doesn’t want to talk.
  • How to choose lesson topics and come up with good discussion questions.
  • Fluency vs accuracy - how to work on both.
  • Error correction in a conversation class.
  • Is “just a chat” a good strategy for a conversation lesson? 
  • How to adapt materials (including your coursebook) for conversation classes.
  • How to reduce Teacher Talking Time and give your students more opportunities to talk?


  • Ideas for engaging conversation activities improving fluency and accuracy.
  • Templates for different conversation lessons.

What other teachers are saying about my training courses:

"I highly recommend Sylwia's training courses. I have participated in two so far. I liked both trainings very much, so I signed up for the next one without hesitation. As a teacher with 9 years of experience, I can confidently say that Sylwia's trainings have really contributed to my professional development. It's really worth it - money well invested."

"I love Sylwia's training because it's packed with advice that can be used immediately. I can always find something for myself there, even though I have been teaching for 20 years. Each training is packed with universal, very practical tips on how to teach. And, last but not least, her teaching ideas usually require minimal or no preparation on the part of the teacher, but great engagement on the part of the student."

"Whatever the topic, you can always expect professionalism, lots of ideas and a very kind and friendly trainer during Sylwia's training. That's why I recommend it wholeheartedly."
