If you would like to continue extending your knowledge of more idiomatic language and look in greater detail at aspects of grammar and sentence structure, this is the course for you.
What will the course or workshop cover and how will it be taught?
Activities will involve speaking, reading, listening and writing, and there may be some opportunity for audio-visual activities. The main emphasis will be on communication, so there will be plenty of opportunity to practice your speaking skills.
The course takes place in a relaxed and light-hearted atmosphere. You will work on improving your vocabulary, use of idiom and level of accuracy, practising orally, with reading and writing exercises for consolidation.
By the end of the course/workshop you will:
- Have broadened the range of topics on which you can express yourself.
- Have had an opportunity to revise the conditional, and other areas of language on request (e.g. imperfect and pronouns)
- Know how to form ordinal numbers
- Be able to use the continuous form
- Use a variety of expressions of necessity
All the above language will be practised orally, using topics such as:
Food and drink, describing a process (eg the steps of a recipe), describing a view, health, sport and exercise, hobbies.
