Learn >> Practise your English conversation skills

This page will introduce our community on Facebook, a place to practise your advanced English speaking skills.

Use our Facebook group to practise your English conversation skills
Practice, practice practice! There's nothing like being able to practise your English conversation skills to improve your confidence in using the language. To help you do this we've set up a group on the popular social networking site, Facebook so you can meet up with other advanced learners of English who are looking to practise their speaking skills.

Getting started
