    Communicating naturally with native speakers is one of the top goals of second/foreign language learners.There are certain challenges of learning and teaching conversational English that are difficult to address in a regular classroom setting. Limited Classroom Exposure•even the most excellent instructor is JUST ONE speaker. The Internet, movies, and TV are excellent resources, but they do not provide feedback on comprehension. Language is Culture Specific•without being part of a cultural group, it is difficult to understand the attitudes, feelings, beliefs, personal values and subtle gradations of interpersonal relationships in the target culture. Authenticity of Instructional Materials•most textbooks are written by professional authors/teachers with a heavy focus on Standard English. Instructional videos are staged and scripted and do not represent the variety of patterns of authentic communication. We address these challenges!Give your English program or English Teacher Training program a competitive edge andadoptUS Conversation.
