The course for you if you are almost a beginner
This course is for you if you have already taken the first half of our beginner level, a beginner's course at another language school, or if you have previously spoken a little English and would like a brush-up.

On the course, you will further improve your spoken English in everyday situations, for example, when you:

  • Meet new people

  • Eat at a restaurant

  • Go shopping

You will also be able to recognise more words in English texts and conversations, so you will be able to talk about even more topics. For example, you will be able to talk about your family and your holidays and ask other people about their interests. At the same time, you will understand whether something is happening in the present or past.

Even though the primary focus is on speaking English, you will be able to write short texts like cards or emails after the course and we will also study some grammar.

We will study selected parts of the second half of the book, Navigate. This means you will be able to use the Oxford online skills programme that accompanies the book if you want extra practice outside the classroom.

Teaching material
Navigate A1 Beginner Coursebook with DVD and Oxford Online Skills (Oxford University Press) ISBN 9780194566230. 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 workbook with audio. 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.

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 14 students in this class.
