So, your English is impressive, you have learned about all the tenses and can communicate and understand at a high level, but there is always fine tuning to be done. It’s fun to do this in a classroom situation, with interesting topics as a starting point and a teacher to not only answer your questions but also introduce things you perhaps hadn’t wondered about yet.

At this level, everyone has different ‘blind spots’, or areas they are less confident in. On any short course, we can’t do everything at once, so we have chosen to use a coursebook that takes real-life interesting speakers and zooms in on the vocabulary and grammar relevant to that topic. You are also encouraged to find further links to the material covered in class in your everyday life and work, and to share these with the group during subsequent lessons. Questions about other language topics may also be answered briefly, or the teacher will help you find other resources to deal with those if they can’t easily be fitted into the schedule.

We will work through units 7-9 of the prescribed textbook in this course, covering topics that require high level language skills. These will include describing and interpreting data using comparative forms; expressions with modal verbs, and collocations with intensifying adverbs. If you’re not sure what these are, join us to find out! You should spend about two hours a week on your homework. Please buy the course book before the first lesson.
