 Oral English Classes

Would you like to improve your oral English this year?  An English teacher who has often taught oral English to Chinese will be offering a free Oral English class to Chinese students, scholars, spouses, and other adult family members this spring.  The aim of the class is to help your English sound more natural, as well as to give a good opportunity for practicing speaking.  We’ll study how the voice goes up and down in normal American expression (which helps carry the meaning).

This class is designed for intermediate level English students and for students who have not been in Iris’ Oral English before.  

(But former students are welcome if they’d like to review what they have studied before and plan to come to the class regularly.)  It is hoped that those who register are eager enough to improve their oral English so that they’ll attend all class sessions if at all possible.  

(Note: this class is not like an English Corner, where you just practice what you already know.  This is a class where you can learn how to make your English sound more natural.  Each class session builds on the previous sessions, so if any students miss class, they'll will get behind.)

When:  Saturdays from January-April, 2024 (time and dates TBA)


Class sessions: Typically, class begins with a short general session for instruction, and then students pair up for oral practice.  To get the most benefit, plan to come to each class because each session builds on the preceding ones.


Registration: Registration will be open starting in the spring semester. Please watch this space for more details. To ask for more information, email Iris at Please give your name and status at your university (undergrad, grad student, scholar, spouse, etc.) or otherwise; also include your WeChat address if you have one. 


Location: House at the Crossroads, 3725 B Metzerott Rd, College Park, MD.  (After entering the Wallace Church driveway, at the fork in the road, go left to the house left of the church building.  Enter the building from the door next to the small parking lot.)
