Most ESL websites are for beginners. You’ve worked hard to reach an intermediate and advanced level by having a huge amount of dedication. We have designed courses and activities specifically for more advanced students to find the vocabulary they need, improve listening comprehension, use better study techniques for independent learning and lots of speaking practice exercises.
Improve your skills to the next level faster than you can learn in the classroom! Study the type of lessons you will hear in the real world instead of what you find in a textbook or scripted dialogues.
Advanced students need to practice speaking A LOT. On our blog, we have educational articles to give you techniques and activities to practice speaking alone, study techniques your teacher would never share with you. Listen to over 8 hours of conversations to really understand American English better. Don’t forget about the phrasal verb course to start talking in like a native speaker.

Hello, my name is Manel. I’m from Mallorca, Spain. I’m just writing to thank you for your amazing podcast. I’m studying to pass the TOEFL exam and it’s really helpful to hear you talking about different topics which are very enjoyable.

Congratulations and thank you very much for everything you’ve done for all of your listeners to understand more from each conversation!Manel B.
LearnUsing Real Conversations
Have you ever noticed that there are many ESL lessons for beginner students but there is hardly anything available for intermediate and advanced students? The truth is that most people that try to learn conversational English don’t make it to this level, most websites are focused on beginners.
Everything on this website was created for intermediate and advanced students that need to get exposed to ‘normal’ everyday Conversations. Our lessons are different because we have also learned another language as an adult and know better tools and techniques that we can show you. Learn English faster, with the resources we have created to study and learn from conversation lessons.
If your goal is to be able to have enjoyable English Conversations, you should be studying conversational English. Why would you waste time studying a textbook with more rules or learn words by studying lists of words that no one uses in real life? Grammar rules are for beginners. Intermediate and advanced students need to listen to lots of topics and learn to speak about those topics without worrying about the ‘rules’. At REC, we know exactly what you need to learn fast.
Naturally Spoken Dialogues
When you study a naturally spoken conversation, you will start to see it is very different than what you read. Real conversations are full of pauses to think and small words or sounds to keep the ‘fluency’ of the conversation. Listening to scripted audio will not teach you how people actually speak.
Most courses don’t give enough emphasis to listening exercises or give you the opportunity to do speaking fluency exercises. These are the 2 skills that are the most difficult for people to learn when they need to interact with real people in real life.
A Method Taught From Personal Experience
Amy, who now knows Spanish, realized during her first conversation attempt that she did not know enough of the everyday vocabulary that people use when they chat with each other. She started to study conversational transcripts and MP3 audio lessons. This taught her the right vocabulary, listening comprehension and speaking patterns that helped her to understand much more from every conversation she heard
It is natural that you want to study the things that are easy. Reading, writing and passive listening are EASY. If you want to be fluent in English, you need to put the same amount of effort into speaking and listening comprehension. Our website gives you techniques and activities you can use to improve your speaking skills and finally have a better experience when you communicate.
English Speaking Exercises
We have created this website for people just people like you. Someone who wants to speak easily, understand what they hear and learn new vocabulary in a natural way. It is important that you start using the words and grammar rules that you know… And you have to practice speaking with them A LOT. The harder it is for you to speak, the more you need to practice. Each dialogue has exercises to help you practice what you have heard in the English conversation. You can listen to conversational English questions that you have to answer by speaking. This resource in our premium section is the most important part that will help you speak with more fluency.
The harder it is for you to speak, the more you need to practice. Our speaking course has dozens of techniques and exercises to help you practice speaking even if you do not have a speaking practice partner. Learn the techniques and exercises you can do to become a fluent, confident speaker fast. Check our course here.
Improve your English Listening
Amy knows from personal experience how it can be difficult to develop your listening skills in a new language in the beginning. This is something she has had to work at very hard to improve. She found that listening to slower audio while reading a transcription helped her to improve her listening skills very quickly.
This is why we have created a full transcript of each one of our American English Conversations. Each conversation has a slow English audio track to help you hear more and give you time to process the information you are hearing. The truth is that ‘hearing’ the words is one skill but being able to understand everything you hear is another thing. It takes practice and patience.
The truth is that ‘good listening’ takes time and practice. Not everyone develops great listening skills automatically. We’ve got all the resources you need including MP3 downloads and PDF English transcriptions to read while listening. If you are ready to start improving your English Conversations, especially your listening skills, invest in your English with one of our Real English Conversation courses!
Amy & Curtis live in British Columbia Canada and have a passion for traveling. After many years of studying Spanish they are finally able to enjoy using the language during their adventures. They have decided to create this website to help people who are wanting to learn conversational American English, that is different from any other website currently available. They are sharing the types of language resources they were unable to find during their language learning adventure. Lucky for you, you have found RealEnglishConversations.com!
