Students, we hope the upcoming sessions will help you as you practice speaking conversational English. It is not unusual for students to be apprehensive at first, and that is understandable. We want you to know that we are friends who want to help you develop your language skills, so we hope you will feel comfortable as we work together.
The key to success is practicing daily before your sessions. Some sounds will be harder for you to pronounce. That is natural. Every language student has to practice certain sounds repeatedly. It is part of the learning process, so don't be discouraged if you have difficulty.
We are here to help. Remember that your conversational partner is praying for you and we all want you to become better with conversational English. May God bless you richly in the days ahead as we work together.
Let your conversations be always full of grace, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how to answer everyone.
- Colossians 4:5-7 NIV
