For us quiet learners

Having a conversation is tough

Let’s find new paths to start speaking about the things you care about (without feeling awkward).

New ways to talk

A free email course for introvert learners who want to discover how to start speaking through the skills they already enjoy - reading, writing and listening.

What do you get?

One email a day for 5 days. You'll use one reading, one writing and one listening exercise as prompts to start speaking. Then you'll get some ideas on how (and why) to record your learning progress.
