Welcome to Survival English Conversation! If you’re a conversation leader or Instructor, let us take a moment to tell you about this course. Like all Hal & Steve lessons, this course is designed for English Conversation. Your peers or learners need to focus on Just Speaking. Be supportive and help them overcome any feelings of doubt, frustration, or embarrassment so that they can speak! That’s the most important tool for becoming a successful English speaker.

In this instruction section, we’ve provided you with a detailed description of our methods. This is how WE (Hal & I) use the material. Please feel free to modify the lessons as you see fit. All learners are unique, so what’s successful with Hal’s learners may be different than what’s successful with Steve’s, and alternatively what might be successful with yours.

So modify, experiment, use these lessons as you see fit!

Remember, low-level learners will often experience embarrassment, frustration, or intimidation whenever they try to speak English. Whether this is spurred by their low vocabulary, comprehension, or listening skills, you should always remember to encourage them. Also, enlisting the help of a higher level English learner to help instruct your class is a great way to improve your learners’ progress.
