Practise everyday English online twice a week
If you would like to improve your English fast and from the comfort of your own home or office, we recommend this intensive online course. You can quickly broaden your vocabulary and improve your spoken English significantly. On this course, you will become more fluent when speaking to friends and work colleagues.

This could be when having more in-depth conversations about:


  • Trends

  • Past experiences

  • What makes us happy

  • Crime

  • Working conditions


You will also learn language that will help you handle practical everyday situations such as asking for and giving opinions, comparing and recommending, giving a talk, agreeing and disagreeing or making enquiries.

The primary focus is that you become better at speaking English, but you will also be given some short written assignments for homework. Most lessons will also involve studying some grammar to give you a framework on which to build the language and to minimise mistakes.

The course focuses on all the four language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing as well as grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary.

As we will be meeting online twice a week and there will also be homework, you will be practising your English nearly every day, which means you will get into a totally different rhythm than if you had only been going to English classes once per week. 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 perform well in their current job.

Preparation time: approx. 1-2 hours.

Teaching material
Navigate Intermediate B1+ Coursebook with DVD and Oxford Online Skills (Oxford University Press), ISBN 9780194566629. We will study selected pages. 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:
Academic Books
Øster Farimagsgade 5 A
1353 København K
The book includes access to an online skills programme and CD for self-study outside the classroom.

How do the online lessons take place?
You take part in the class via the video conferencing programme, Zoom. Your teacher will send you a link with a secure code to the class meeting room. You and your fellow students will meet online once a week. You will work with authentic texts, video and audio clips as well as interactive group tasks. Online classes are similar to face-to-face classes in that you can work in groups, take part in classroom discussions, raise your hand and share your work with everyone.

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


Shellie Hansen

Shellie Hansen is a CELTA and TESOL qualified teacher and holds an MA in counseling psychology. She started teaching English to children in the Philippines, but in 2003 moved back home to Australia, where she began teaching adults. She also lived in the US for 7 years and in the UK for 2, which is why her accent changes every now and then. She is now happily settled in Denmark with her Danish husband and children. She also works with both children and adults in Copenhagen. What Shellie likes about teaching is meeting people from all over the world, and learning about their cultures while helping them reach their language goals.

Shellie recommends
Food and drink: In Sydney – have breakfast or brunch at one of the many outdoor cafés and have lunch at an Asian food court in Chinatown.
Learning tips: Read as much as you can from menus to magazines, watch films and online TED talks. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes – just speak, speak, speak!!
Places to visit: Bondi Beach cliff walk in Sydney, scuba diving in the Philippines and get lost in the energy of New York City.
Literature: Shellie reads anything and everything. What she’s reading now; The Traveller trilogy by John Twelve Hawks & Wonderland by Haruki Murakami.
