Drop-in Conversation

Just talk: casual, no pressure.

Sign up!

You need: To speak with a native English speaker to improve your fluidity, pronunciation, and confidence.

Your obstacles:

  • It's not easy to find a language partner who is a native English speaker.
  • Coordinating a time and place to meet up in person is also not easy.
  • You feel stuck and just want to speak!!!

The solution: Sign up and drop in for casual audio/video conversations!

When: The last Thursday of every month for 30 minutes, between 10AM to 5PM* (Toronto time). Choose your own time slot.

Where: We will use bitpaper.io for all drop-ins. The link to join will be provided to all members.

*Subject to change. If I will be completely unavailable (meaning no time slots at all), all members will be refunded for that month.

Here's how it works

1. (optional) Use this form to ask any questions, and help me get to know you better.

2. Sign up and become a member. After you pay, you will have access to the 30-minute time slots.

3. The Sunday prior to the last Thursday of every month, new available times will be posted for the Thursday.

Easy, right?


A. This is not a class. You must already be able to understand and speak at a basic conversational level to participate.

B. There are no lesson plans, no corrections, no notes, no homework. Just conversation.

C. If you need more than just conversation, please have a look at my other programs and courses.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the start date?
You can sign up whenever you want, but the sessions only take place the last Thursday of every month.
What if there is a month where I'm unavailable?
Your donation is still welcome even if you cannot attend during a given month. I cannot keep track of who attended and who didn't, so if you would like a refund for the month that you were unavailable, you have 30 days from the date of payment to write to me at contact@ponatran.com to request any refunds.
Where is my money going?
Good question. The small fee is to cover the costs associated with running this website, administrative costs associated with organizing and scheduling, and also to help towards my goal of raising money to donate to UNICEF's Educate a Girl campaign.
If you are not teaching anything, how is this different from finding a language partner?
With a language partner, you need to speak in your native language too. Here, we'll speak 100% in English, and you don't have to worry about always planning a date and time. It's really easy!
Is it 1:1 or a group conversation?
It's not necessarily 1:1 or a group. It depends how many people come to each time slot. So if you are the only one who signs up, then you will get a 1:1 session.
How many times can I drop in during the day?
As many times as there are sessions available. The number of sessions per day depends how many people sign up. eg. Each person is only allowed to choose ONE (1) time slot per day. If 3 people sign up for a different time slot, there will be 3 sessions that day. Any member can attend any time slot.
Why is it a monthly payment?
Because the event only happens once a month, it's a great way to remind you to join each month! If you can't join, you can request a refund for that month.

Risk-free 30-day money back guaranteed.

If you are not happy with the program, you have 30 days to receive a 100% refund.

5% of all profits will be donated to UNICEF Educate a Girl at the end of the year.
