A1.1 English for almost beginners/Engelsk for næsten begyndere
This course is for you if you are already familiar with English, but want to focus on getting the absolute basics right. It focuses on the four skills you need when you are learning a language: speaking, listening, reading and writing so you will experience well-balanced progress.
After taking this course, you will, amongst others, be able to:
- Introduce yourself
- Talk about your job
- Talk about your life
- Ask people questions
You will also learn a lot of new words to do with, for example, jobs, family, transport, colour and clothes 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 an informal email. We will also study some basic grammar in each lesson to give you a framework on which to build the language.
We will study the first half (chapters 1 to 5) of the book, Navigate.
On the course, you will meet students who have previously learnt some basic English and would like to start over with the full beginner level. If you do not know any English, please contact us for an individual solution.
Preparation time: approx. 1-2 hours.
Navigate Beginner, Student's book, 2016 (Oxford University Press), ISBN 9780194565035. You should buy the book before the start of the course. You can either buy the book online at www.academicbooks.dk or at their shop:
Øster Farimagsgade 5 A
1353 København K
The book includes access to an online skills programme and CD for self-study outside the classroom. In addition, the book can be projected onto the whiteboard so you and the other students will typically follow the teaching there as well as looking in your own book.
The Moodle learning platform
Moodle is Studieskolen's online course platform, which we use for all our courses. You will be given personal access to your course Moodle page, where you can:
- Find your course plan and teaching material
- Find homework
- Watch videos and click on links to useful English resources on the Internet uploaded by your teacher
- Find practical information about each lesson
- Communicate with your teacher and fellow students
If you are ill or absent during the course, you can always follow the teaching and catch up via Moodle.
Note! We expect that we can run the course as normal classroom instruction. However, we always follow the authorities' recommendations. Therefore, in August we will take stock of the situation and make any necessary adjustments to the courses. For example, in relation to how many students can sit in a room or whether or not we need to change a course to online teaching and the like.
