Why We Include Events at Immerse
- There are key aspects of a language that come out in authentic conversations.
- Immerse Events offer a special opportunity to engage in spontaneous interactions with other learners - with an instructor right there to support you.
- Our events take place in realistic virtual settings like a doctors office, a city park, an airport, and more - perfect for role-playing and conversation.
When learners engage in authentic conversations, they develop their listening and speaking skills. This allows them to explore the nuances of pronunciation, intonation, and colloquial expressions with confidence.
These nuances are critical for anyone who wants to achieve fluency and confidence in their new language.
At these events, Immerse instructors serve as facilitators, welcoming Members in, making sure there’s equal participation, helping you join the conversation, and providing support if you need help thinking of a word.
All of this is done through engaging activities like role-playing going through airport security, cooking a new recipe, or collaborating on planning a party.
And if you’re generally a shy person, have no fear - research shows that language learners have much less anxiety and more fun when they use avatars.
Because the events are held in the types of settings where these activities would normally take place, there are no awkward attempts at roleplaying with someone on a Zoom screen. You’re now standing across from the doctor in a clinic, asking another gym member for tips on using the equipment, or hanging out with your friends at a burger place.
This takes conversation practice to a whole new level.
Authentic conversations lead to genuine connections.
So jump in. Start Speaking. Have fun! 🚀
