Speaking Exercise: Secrets to Success

Secrets to Success

Advanced English Conversation Class on "Secrets to Success"

Advanced English Conversation Class on "Secrets to Success"

I love talking about success with our students in their English conversation classes via Skype, as everyone has a different opinion on what constitutes "success". Is it to earn a lot of money? To have a big house and expensive car? To have a stable job? To have travelled the world? To be a good parent?

Each week we publish a NEW, awesome Conversation Class eBook for our online English students, which helps them learn and use new useful vocabulary and talk about a wide variety of exciting topics! In this video, I answer 3 questions from the lesson plan on "Secrets to Success".

Check out the key vocabulary from the lesson below the video, and to learn more, simply download the full lesson plan here!
