Download your Faster Fluency Conversation Guidebook

It gives you tips for getting the most out of the sessions, and includes phrases and questions for starting conversations on the theme of the week. It will be your go-to reference during your Club sessions. I recommend that you print it and bring it with you when you connect. This way, you can make notes on vocabulary and expressions!

Then, the Club Leader will put you into small conversation groups with 1-2 partners, so you can practice speaking. Of course, the Club Leader will join your conversation from time to time to correct you and answer your questions too!

I recommend you download the application Zoom (it’s free) to make it easy to connect each week. You can download it for free at https://www.zoom.us/

Membership payments and cancellations

Your membership in the Faster Fluency Conversation Club renews automatically each month, on the date you joined.

For example, if you joined on January 7th, your membership renews on February 7th, March 7th, etc. until YOU cancel your membership.

Here’s how to cancel your membership if you decide to leave the Club:

  • Email contact@christinarebuffet.com with “FFCC membership cancellation” in the subject line
  • Tell us why you want to cancel if you want to, but there’s no obligation. Feedback helps us improve the program for future students.
  • We’ll cancel your membership and stop your payment within 48 hours.
  • You’ll continue to have access to the Fluency Club until the end of your payment period.

For example, if you join on January 7th and participate in the sessions of January, February, and March, but decide on March 20th to cancel your membership, you can continue participating in the sessions for the rest of the month, and until April 6th. No further payments will be taken after this.
If you need any help or have a question, the Speak English with Christina team is here for you!
Send your questions to marica@christinarebuffet.com, and our assistant Marica will help you.
