Strategies designed for progress in your English confidence and fluency.

Advanced Conversation gives you the opportunity to refine, perfect, and cement these skills in your English — in other words, they become natural to you.

Speak at length clearly, without significant pauses or fillers, and speak to a variety of topics, including topics outside of your comfort zone and abstract topics such as culture, philosophy, beliefs, art, etc.

Accuracy & Variety

Use the correct grammar tense most of the time and you’re able to correctly use a variety of sentence structures and vocabulary when speaking, including figurative language. 

Communicate effectively

Start, lead, and participate in conversations effortlessly, requesting clarification when needed, and respond to questions — both expected and unexpected — without difficulty.

Be Clear & Organized

Be consistently able to organize your thoughts, ideas, and details and communicate in a way that is clear and easily understood by native speakers and your classmates.

FAQs

Answers to commonly asked questions.

How much does Advanced Conversation cost?

Advanced Conversation is $180* USD per month.

We also provide a 3-month plan for $480. When you pay for 3 months, you save $60. (This plan must be used for 3 consecutive months, for example, June, July, August. They cannot be separated over time.)

*Please note this investment is subject to change.

I haven't taken Fluency School but I'd like to join.

I’m thrilled you’d like to learn with me but this course is ONLY available for Fluency School graduates.

I recommend that you register to join me for the next Fluency School course.

Registrations from non-Fluency School graduates will immediately be declined and refunded. 

How many small group classes can I join?

You may schedule 2 classes per week.

Currently we offer a Monday/Wednesday schedule and a Tuesday/Thursday schedule. 

We ask that our students choose a schedule and class time that they can commit to every week. This helps us ensure small group classes and helps our students develop meaningful relationships in the process of advancing their English skills.

 

How long is this course?

Advanced Conversation is a month-to-month course. This means that you can join for just one month or you can choose to join multiple months.

Your membership in the course will automatically renew every month, which means you will be billed $180 USD every month (or every 3 months if you select the 3-month payment plan).

Who teaches Advanced Conversation?

The Teaching Team at Speak Confident English. All of our teachers are trained by Annemarie and are familiar with the Fluency School and Speak Confident English methods.

What if I only want to join for one month?

No problem.

When you join, you will pay for the first month ($180). After one month, you can then pause or cancel your membership at any time.

However, you must do this before your next billing cycle. You will automatically be billed for $180 every month unless you pause or cancel.

We cannot provide a refund once you’ve been billed for a month.

 

Who can join?

Fluency School II: Advanced Conversation is only available for former Fluency School students.

The skills and themes of the course are based on what you learned in Fluency School.

Will there be materials available or homework to do? Do I need to watch videos and complete speaking tasks?

This course is 100% focused on the small group conversation classes – just like the classes you participated in during Fluency School.

In each class, you’ll continue to master the speaking skills you gained in the course.

There will not be any videos or speaking tasks in this conversation course.

When necessary for the weekly small groups, we will provide materials that will help you develop your speaking skills, expand your vocabulary, and deepen your grammar knowledge.

Do we get feedback like in Fluency School?

In Advanced Conversation (AC), all feedback is provided directly in class, just like in a traditional classroom.

With each new month in AC, we set targeted goals on a variety of communication skills, grammar structures, vocabulary, and more.

From week to week, assessment activities are included in our classes to ensure that you are successfully gaining the target skills for each month. 

We also provide a monthly progress journal so you can track what you are learning and how you are progressing every week.

We do not have individual speaking challenges or feedback every week; instead, we provide homework tasks at the end of each class that will be reviewed in the following class.

I joined Fluency School a year ago. Can I still join Advanced Conversation now?

Absolutely! Advanced Conversation is available to you whenever you would like to join, now or at a later date.

What if I miss a class?

All classes will be recorded and shared only with our group.

We also provide class notes at the end of every class. 

If you miss a class, you can always catch up with the recordings and notes.

I need to pause or cancel my membership. How can I do that?

Good news — it’s simple to cancel your membership.

But first, as of January 1, 2023, we will not be able to pause student memberships.

However, with our course platform, students can cancel their membership at any time.

 

If you prefer NOT to lose your spot in the class, you can also select one of these options:

  1. Keep your membership and attend classes while on vacation.
  2. Keep your membership and watch the recorded lessons you missed.
  3. Cancel your membership in advance, before you are charged for the full month. We provide the precise steps to cancel your membership in our course platform.

👉 Please remember that students need to cancel their membership before their next payment in order to avoid getting charged. We do not provide refunds once a payment has been made.

When you are ready to rejoin, you can email us at [email protected]

At that time, we will let you know what class options are currently available for you.

 

*IMPORTANT: When you cancel your membership, we will offer the spot to another student on our waiting list. That means the class may be full when you want to restart your classes. If you cancel your membership and decide to restart later, you’ll need to restart at the current Advanced Conversation cost.

I forgot to pause my membership. Can I get a refund?

We have a limited number of spots available for Advanced Conversation and schedule our teachers based on the number of registrations. Once your payment is made, this blocks another student from joining and we assume you will attend the course.

For this reason, no refunds are provided for Advanced Conversation.

**It’s important to plan ahead if you need to pause or cancel your membership so you don’t make an accidental extra payment.**

Can I join any class time I want? Can I change class times when I need?

Great question.

We ask students to choose 1 class time they can commit to and attend regularly. For example, Monday and Wednesday at 7:30 PM.

This allows us to keep our class size small and provide the best experience for every student.

If you are not able to join your regular class time, you may be able to schedule another class time if there is an open spot. However, we cannot guarantee that a spot will be open. 

I can't see the class time I want on the schedule. What happened?

The calendar shows all the class times we provide for Advanced Conversation.

However, we offer a limited number of spots for each class to keep our class sizes small.

If you do not see the class time you want on the scheduling calendar or if you see the word ‘FULL’, it means we do not have any open spots for that class time.

We add new classes based on demand. If you would like to join but do not see a class time open for you, please send us an email. We will be sure to let you know when a spot is open or when we add a new class time.

I joined Advanced Conversation. But how do I schedule my weekly classes?

Don’t worry — we do it for you! 

When you register for Advanced Conversation, we ask you to select a specific class to join consistently. That is the class you will be scheduled for.

At the end of every month, typically the last Friday of the month, we schedule all the classes for the next month. When we do, you’ll receive a confirmation email with the date/time you selected and a link to the online classroom.

How can I cancel or reschedule a class time?

Need to cancel or reschedule? We totally understand. Things happen. Schedules change.

If there is a spot open in another class, please follow these steps:

1. Find your confirmation email with your scheduled class time.

2. Please use the Reschedule/Cancel button to reschedule the class.

Then just follow the instructions.

Super simple. 😊

I want to join but it says Advanced Conversation is full — how can I join?

From time to time our Advanced Conversation classes are full because we aim to keep our class sizes small. We want to maximize your speaking time and the attention you get from your instructor.

However, we do add new class times regularly based on demand. If the class is full, please contact us to join our waitlist. We’ll alert you to new class times and new openings by email.

Will you add more class times?

Yes, we do add new classes or change class times based on the needs of those who join the course.

If you can’t find a class time that works for you, please be sure to email me to me know. If I can adjust the class times now or in the future, I’ll be sure to let you know.

Do you still have classes during the holidays? For example, in December?

In August and December, we close for 2 weeks. That means we do not have classes.

Because August and December are short months, we automatically apply a discount to the billing cycle so you only pay for the classes we offer.

I heard about a class called Mastering Conversation. What is that?

Mastering Conversation is our newest, highest level course! We opened Mastering Conversation in June 2020.

We have many students who work with us in Fluency School and stay with us in Advanced Conversation. As our students continue to make progress and reach a new level in English, we want to provide the right support and lessons they need to continue their advancement.

Membership for Mastering Conversation is by invitation only. This course is not open to the public.

Every month, our teaching team evaluates student progress in Advanced Conversation. When we see students demonstrating specific skills consistently in their English communication, we will invite them into Mastering Conversation.
