Fine-tune your speaking and writing skills
This course is for you if you are already an advanced English student, but you would like to develop your English speaking and writing skills even further. Perhaps you haven't used your English for a while and you lack confidence and/or need a brush-up. On this course, we will improve your spoken fluency by discussing thought-provoking news stories taken from leading current affairs publications supplemented by YouTube excerpts to inspire debate.

The topics we discuss include the rise of AI, work/life balance, health, the importance of music in our lives, the attraction of the nomadic lifestyle and transportation of the future.

In each lesson, we focus on broadening your vocabulary and improving your pronunciation through, for example, studying syllables and word stress, prefixes and suffixes and the definitions of new words.

Three written assignments will be given for homework. These will be discursive essays based on the topics discussed in the lessons. We focus on how to structure your writing and you will receive feedback from your teacher on grammar, spelling and style. Additional homework will be in the form of advanced vocabulary exercises.

This is not a grammar course, so your teacher will give you relatively brief explanations about grammatical mistakes, although you also have the opportunity to receive extra material that focuses on identified mistakes. You can complete these extra exercises for homework.

Some lessons will be based on tasks, which have been developed by the teachers to get you to talk together as much as possible.

Teaching material
