Practice your speaking skills
Are you a language learner who would like to get more speaking practice?
You can now book free, informal speaking practice sessions, held online, hosted by volunteers from the Queen Mary community who are native or proficient speakers of the language you’re learning.
The scheme is open to all Queen Mary students and staff, no matter what School/Institute you’re in. You don’t need to be taking a language module to participate in the scheme. You can be any level (except complete beginner), from elementary to advanced. The scheme can also be used by Queen Mary students whose first language is not English, to improve their fluency and confidence in English.
The languages currently offered are: English, French, German, Italian, Hindi (Hindi can also be taken by complete beginners), Mandarin Chinese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish and Tamil.
