Step 5: Your speaking practice

We’ll meet online using Skype or Zoom and I’ll record the audio of your speaking practice

What you need:

  • 15 minutes of your time
  • Good internet connection
  • Skype account
  • Computer, laptop or tablet
  • Earphones / headphones
  • Your completed revision lesson

Some students don’t like to speak in a classroom setting because they are shy or unsure of their ability. I really want to help you feel comfortable and confident when you speak English. It will only be you and me during the private speaking appointment. I only record the audio and always keep this private. I will ask you the questions from the revision lesson that you have completed. I’m not judgemental or critical and will always try to help you improve in a kind and calm way. I really enjoy listening to students speak about their lives and experiences. Don’t stress :)

We meet online using Skype or Zoom. We can meet with or without video because I only record the audio. Some people are more comfortable with the video switched on but if we have connectivity problems we will change to audio only.


During our speaking appointment I’ll ask you the questions from the revision lesson you completed in your English Out There ebook. Some speaking tasks have a visual image which I can share with you via the screen share options on Skype or Zoom if you are using a computer or tablet.

If we have problems with bandwidth we will switch off the video. We can each work with our own printed ebook. If you can only join the speaking appointment by smart phone then please have your printed ebook with you, or at least the printed revision lesson.
