Socialise like a PRO in English
Do you struggle to have casual, spontaneous conversations in English?
Does the following sound familiar?
You might have an intermediate or advanced level of English and you can probably communicate and understand conversations well but being spontaneous and making small talk is a struggle for you.
You don’t look forward to meeting native English speakers at social gatherings because you can't speak as spontaneously and naturally as you would like. Maybe you manage to get the conversation started but then you get stuck. You may start to worry “What should I say next?” or “How should I respond?”
You don’t want to feel “awkward. Rather, you want to fit in with your native English-speaking friends. You want to be confident when you chat with native English speakers. You don’t want to stand out as the “weird foreigner”.
Is that how you feel? Then you’re in the right place.
I’ll teach you important strategies and expressions so you can avoid the awkwardness and be confident and fit in with native English speakers.

Hear what Dominique from Paris had to say about the course!
Hi! I'm Leandra, the founder of English with Leandra. I'm a native English speaker from Barbados who is passionate about languages and culture. I help intermediate and advanced English learners master small talk and spontaneous everyday conversation in English, so they can fit in with native English speakers.
I totally understand your feelings and frustrations when it comes to having casual conversations in English.
I've had the same struggles with French. In 2013, I moved to Martinique, a French-speaking country, to work as a language assistant at two schools. I had a high level of French so I could follow conversations in French pretty easily and I could also communicate with others BUT I still struggled to make small talk and to have casual, everyday conversations in French. Because of my experience, I can empathise with you and that's why I want to help you.
