Become more fluent in English
This course is for you if you already know the basics of the English language and would like to develop your skills further. It focuses on the four skills you need when you are learning a new language: speaking, listening, reading and writing so you will experience well-balanced progress. On this course, you will become more fluent when speaking to new people.

This could be when having conversations about:

  • Your family

  • Shopping

  • Past experiences

  • Countries, nationalities and language

You will also learn a lot of new words to do with, for example, clothes, jobs, work, daily activities, family and learn how to pronounce the new words correctly.

The primary focus is that you become better at speaking English, but you will also be given short written assignments for homework, for example, writing a personal profile. We will also study some elementary grammar in each lesson to give you a framework on which to build the language.

We will study the first half (chapters 1 to 6) of the book, Navigate.

On the course, you will typically meet students who need to improve their English because they have recently got a new job, or students who need to improve their English quickly so they can speak more fluently with family, friends and colleagues.

Teaching material
Navigate Elementary, Student's book, 2016 (Oxford University Press), ISBN 9780194566360. We will study selected pages. You can buy the book before the start of the course or wait until after the first class. You can either buy the book online at or at their shop. The book includes access to an online skills programme for self-study outside the classroom. In addition, the book can be projected on the whiteboard so you and the other students will typically follow the teaching there as well as looking in your own book.

Overview of the course layout and material
You will receive access to our online digital platform, Moodle. Moodle provides a comprehensive overview of the entire course. You will also be able to contact your classmates and discuss the activities taking place in your class.

On Moodle you can:

  • see the plan for the course, the individual teaching sessions and homework

  • see teaching materials including extra materials such as videos

  • communicate with your teacher and your fellow students

  • follow up and catch up on lessons missed if you are absent during the course

Preparation time: approx. 1-2 hours

There is a maximum of 16 students in this class.

Diana Elvie Christensen

Diana Elvie Christensen har et CELTA-certifikat. Hun er født i Jamaica og flyttede senere til USA. Hun har boet i Danmark siden 1990. 
"What I love about teaching English is that I enjoy being a mentor, a motivator and the biggest cheerleader for my students. I believe that every student has potential and my job is to exploit that potential in a stimulating, creative and fun environment".

Diana anbefaler:
Food and drink: Chill out at Rick's cafe in Negril, Jamaica with a Pina Colada spiked with Jamaican rum or a cool Red Stripe beer and some seafood!
Places to visit: Jamaica - Reach Falls, Port Antonio; Negril Beach (7 miles/11km of pure white sand bordering turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea!)
U.S.A. - Yosemite National Park, California(see the sequoia trees); Nappa Valley, California.
Cultural events: Classical music concerts in Central park and Rock music concerts on Jones Beach,New York, July and August
Learning tips: Read a good book every 3 months and a well written newspaper like the Guardian/U.S.A Today every day.
Literature: My all time favourite is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. There is nothing like an intellectual fight between a man and a woman!
