Food-Themed

Strategic Prep Approach


L1: Part 1 of our Early Intermediate series.


We designed this unique approach to maximize speaking outcomes.
Save $50 with our best practices ‘strategic prep’ approach to get the best out of our highly successful flipped learning model.

How it works:

✅ Engage in your Food-themed course asynchronously (no virtual face-to-face) for 1-4 weeks
💪 Build all the skills (reading, writing, listening, pronunciation) collectively required to support the most important skill (speaking) - through a wide variety of interactive exercises & activities
🗣 Join the Food-themed course synchronously (live face-to-face) to practice speaking in our virtual classroom 1x, 2x, or 3x / week with an engaged community of adult learners.
By the end of this course, you’ll feel more confident in...

talking about different kinds of food, cooking and flavors, express what you like and what disgusts you, relay what you need and what you don't need to prepare a dish, how to order a drink, follow a recipe, give instructions in the kitchen, and handling even the unexpected curveballs your travels may throw at you.
