At World Class Languages our main objective is to teach students how to communicate in another language. All of our programs focus on development of conversational skills and also include elements of reading and writing to give students a well-rounded experience in a foreign language. In order to immerse the student into the new language and thus aid the acquisition process, our courses are taught almost entirely in the target language. Our instructors are passionate about teaching and are dedicated to making sure students achieve their learning objectives while also having fun.
In addition to learning to speak a foreign language, students learn about the culture of the country or regions where the language is spoken, such as gestures, cultural norms and taboos, superstitions and traditions, holidays, and cuisine. The number of students in a group class does not exceed six in order to give each student personalized attention of the teacher and plenty of opportunity to practice speaking the new language.
At World Class Languages we currently offer customized one-on-one programs in the following languages:

Conversational English program in Boca Raton (private instruction)
This program is designed for students who already speak English, but need to improve their confidence, fluency, expand vocabulary, become familiarized with American idioms and slang, and improve pronunciation to sound more American. This non-intensive program offers a unique opportunity to focus on developing those skills. Each lesson consists of learning vocabulary on a specific topic, reading a short passage or newspaper article, and then discussing the topic as a group. To become more aware of how the language is spoken by native speakers, the student will go over the multitude of phrasal verbs and idioms that are used daily in American English, and do various exercises until these expressions become part of the student's active vocabulary. Moreover, the program includes American accent training to help the learner gain even more confidence and to be more easily understood by others. Please contact us to schedule your complimentary assessment and be on your way to understand and speak English with more confidence!
