Introduction:

🌞 Improve your Speaking, Listening, Comprehension, Public Speaking & Writing skills

Hello! 👋 I'm Madelyn. I live in Wales, on the West coast of the UK.
I am an experienced teacher with a neutral British English accent.

🎧 Listening & Comprehension 💭
Many students find listening to be the most challenging part of a conversation, but working on it not only increases your vocabulary but actually helps you in speaking too.
Before class, I'll send you a podcast recording (mp3) to listen to.
During class, I will ask you some prepared comprehension questions based on the audio. You will have plenty of opportunities to ask me questions about unfamiliar vocabulary, phrases, and content context.
Some of the resources I use include the Global News by the BBC World Service and the Scientific American Podcast: 60-Second Podcasts series.
After class, I will send you a transcript of the audio for your English learning file. You can listen to it again and follow along.
This has proved to be a really successful way for many of my students to improve their listening, comprehension, and speaking skills.

🤝🏻 Practical English - How are you? 🤝🏻
Learn different question forms for the basic: How are you? And learn some different replies to this important question! 🎓 This lesson will really help you to become more confident and sound more like a native English speaker 😎
You will be sent a worksheet after class to keep for your English learning file.

👨🏻‍🏫👩🏻‍🏫 Public speaking tips that can really help you with your business presentations and meetings. I am an experienced public speaker with lots of tips (and worksheets for your learning file!) to help you be the best version of yourself when giving presentations or demonstrations. For example, I can help you with getting your nerves under control, making an outline, making the best use of notes, dealing with interruptions, etc.

💬 The Art of Free Conversation & Pronunciation Practice
Many of my students find informal small talk, or "chit-chat" to be a real challenge when learning a new language. That being said, small talk can be mastered! Along with conversation practice, you will learn the differences between British English and American English words - a fun and interesting exercise that will help you in your travels, business meetings, and social occasions!

So let's get going - book a lesson 📅 and we can start your journey together today! 😎

During class, we'll listen again to the podcast (or an except) together and I will ask some prepared comprehension questions based on what we just listened to.
