Welcome to Travel English Conversation! This course and these lessons are designed for learner at the high-beginner to intermediate level. The topic is Travel, so every lesson targets a particular aspect relative to that. Like all of Hal & Steve English lessons, these are specifically designed for conversation.

We want to focus on learners communicating in English, as much as they can, using as much English as they know. Remember, you don’t need perfect grammar or a high vocabulary to talk in English. It can be a bit daunting at first, and you might feel a bit frustrated, but just hang in there and continue trying. Being successful at English conversation is just about putting in time. Minutes, Hours, Days… you just need to speak English as often as you can.

There are no shortcuts. But remember, you can do this! Over 1 billion people speak English. So can you!
