Mensagem:  "Conversation classes" sounds more usual and natural to me. I don't have an explanation for that. It's just the way it sounds. I think it's like Portuguese: aulas de conversação e aulas conversacionais. Eu nunca diria "aulas conversacionais",
If you check both expressions on Google Books Ngram Viewer (https://books.google.com/ngrams), you can see that "conversation classes" is about 10 times more common.
