Re: conversation with intermediate adults

Hi! I'm teaching English to young learners. Now I've been asked (and I would like that a lot) to have conversation classes with adults. I'm not a native speaker so I guess I'm a little bit scared with the idea. :oops: Any ideas? How can I prepare myself :?: Where can I find useful resources :?: Tha...
