What is your curriculum?
Our curriculum is mainly the “Scarlett Method”. We give the student a conversation topic, type what they say as they speak (typing skill needed is at least 40 wpm) and then go over what they have said, correcting the student’s pronunciation, grammar, vocabulary, etc., relentlessly and strictly; showing the students a better way to say things and building on what they already know. We also offer Free Form Conversation, using Website Articles, and Conversational Topics. You do not need to know all of these. I will demonstrate the Scarlett Method.
