Parent Talk

Members of the Parent Talk group A Parent Talk mother and child

Parent Talk is an informal conversation group for parents that meets from September through June on Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday mornings. In addition, many students take one or two private or semi-private lessons per week, with their children present, for more formal English language studies. Children from newborn to three years old are welcome. Contact us to ask about summer schedules. Each week we focus on a specific parenting theme, such as feeding, potty training, role of fathers, self-care, discipline, attachment, sleeping, etc. We also often study English language phrasal verbs that relate to parenting. Sometimes short readings are used to guide the discussion on topics that we identify, as a group.

Please join us to talk about language, culture, and parenting, a topic of interest to so many of our students. For more information about our Parent Talk program, see here. We look forward to meeting you!

Parent Talk group classes are led by Carol Madison, Harriet Peck, and Anna Green. Also, please ask about Parent Talk semi-private lessons, for smaller groups - with a more structured curriculum - led by other instructors. More information about Carol, Harriet, and Anna here.
