An interactive approach

EnglishConnect’s learning method includes daily practice and interactive conversation groups with peers and mentors in your area. These supportive community groups will encourage your personal growth as you practice having conversations about everyday life situations.

Speak with confidence

This learning approach will help you gain confidence as you improve your ability to communicate in English and learn the language versus only memorizing phrases.

Plus, it's all for free or at little cost to you!
I could feel the Spirit each time I participated in our conversation group. I never imagined one day I could talk with someone in English. For me, it's a special blessing.
Carlos Eduardo Alves da Silva, Portugal
