Formal Program

It’s No Secret... If You Want To Improve Your Writing, You Need Real World Practice

In order to write better, attending a regular ESL class won't do much good.  You need to be focused on actually writing. Here's how Port of Conversation helps:

Flexibility

Participate as much or as little as you want anytime of the day.  It's great if you have a constantly shifting schedule or are never sure when you'll be able to practice your writing. We do recommend if you can to set up certain times you spend working on your writing!

Personalized

With our programs you can write about anything (as long as it's of interest to you and something you would write about in your daily life).  We review many different topics and ways to improve your writing. Want to work on something specific? Let us know!

  • Focuses on the format and written skills you use most often.
  • Is student focused.  Have a question you want to bring up related to the topic?  Just ask!
  • Provides feedback so you can improve on your next project.

If you want to see improvement and meet your goals, we'll help you exceed them.

Why Focus On Writing Instead Of All Communication Skills?

  • If you are a strong reader, great listener, and can communicate your ideas well, but struggle to write for what you need, then you need to focus on your weakness.
  • Knowing what you want to write about, but not knowing how to start is a common difficulty. When writing you have to think things through.
  • Improving your writing also allows you to improve grammar, spelling, and sentence structure. When writing mistakes are more noticeable than when speaking.

What Is The Process To Become A Better Writer?

There are 4 simple steps to start your journey

Feedback

One of the biggest issues with writing English is you never know what you're doing wrong until someone makes fun of you.  Not anymore!  We let you know 1 thing you're doing really well and 3 things (with tips, tricks, or resources) you can work at!  

Writing Program Pricing

Prices are in USD and tax is not included.

  • We provide a second option.  We have created a similar environment, but with support.  Try a trial lesson see if Port of Conversation's Programs work for you. 
  • The best way to practice is in the real world with real people.  This can be stressful for the fear of making a mistake. 

Step 2: Lesson Choice

Step 1: Reflect

One of the first steps to improve your writing is to know what you need to use it for. Do you need it for school or to write reports for work? Or is it more so to for everyday use?

Decide on which lessons are best for you. Our casual writing program is for everyday writing and the formal writing program is for the work reports and academics.

Step 3: Register

Register for the writing program that fits your needs best.  We start a new theme on the 1st of the month so we recommend you join then.  Themes run for the month.

Step 4: Participate

Participate actively in your chosen program!  The more you participate, the more you will get out of it.  Once your program is done, join us for another month!

  • If you are a strong reader, great listener, and can write well, but struggle to communicate in a conversation, then you need to focus on your weakness.
  • Knowing what you want to talk about, but not knowing how to start a conversation or how to 

keep a conversation going are common challenges.

  • Improving your speaking also allows you to improve your confidence and self esteem.  In order to improve your speaking skills you need a safe place to practice, which is often generally not a classroom.
