2. Is it just a speaking/conversation?
No.  It is a complete English language program, which improves all of your skills through speaking.

When you make mistakes your teacher corrects you and explains the specific grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation or other point.
She then helps you find the phrases you need to express your idea clearly.

She gives you the information you need exactly when you need it (when you have tried to express yourself and couldn’t).
This method helps you connect all of your language knowledge in order to communicate more effectively.

3. What do we do in each class?
You begin each class with a chat to get warmed up.  This is light conversation, also called “small talk”.

Then your teacher asks each student “what’s on your mind?” This is your chance to speak about something that is interesting to you.

After this your teacher introduces the topic of the day.  All of the activities which follow are related to this topic.  Each day there is a new topic.

Throughout the class your teacher helps you correct your mistakes and explains how to express your ideas in the most natural way.

4. Will the teacher correct every mistake I make? 
No.  Your teacher helps you find the words and phrases you need when you are trying to communicate.
She focuses on giving you feedback that will help you improve accuracy and fluency.

5. How many students are in the class?
The average class size is 4 – 5 students and the maximum is 6.

6. Where are the students from?
Students from all over the world are welcome take this class.
This class is especially popular with Japanese students.
If there are other people who speak your language in your class, it could benefit you as they may be facing the same challenges.
This means you will find it interesting and useful when the teacher is answering their questions.

7. How many levels are there?
This program is designed for Intermediate and Advanced students.
However, we encourage all students to try it.

If you think your speaking skills are at the beginner level, you may be surprised to see that with our method you will speak during your first class.
With encouragement and support from your teacher, your speaking level will quickly catch up to your level in your other skills.

8. Do I take a placement test?
No.  You do a trial lesson to see how you feel in the class.

9. How do I progress to a higher level?
We don’t focus on levels.
Instead every day in every class the teacher focuses on the individual needs of each student.
This means that your personal level improves after every class.

In our class the teacher follows you.
She encourages you to communicate and then gives you the information you need to express your ideas clearly.
The goal is for you to understand a little bit more and for others to understand you a little better after each class.

10. Will I have different teachers?  
You may have a different teacher on a different day. All of our teachers have taught using the iSpeak ENGLISH! method for many years.
