Speak English fluently and pronounce the words correctly
This course is for you if you are already at an advanced level, but you would like to progress even further by honing your skills. Perhaps you have not spoken English regularly for some time and you need to boost your confidence and have a brush-up.

The classes are based on interesting newspaper articles from publications like the Guardian, the New York Times and the Economist, which have been selected to inspire discussion. The articles are accompanied by tasks that focus on, e.g., increasing your vocabulary, improving your spoken fluency, and helping with pronunciation. You can expect to spend the majority of the lesson discussing with your fellow participants and working together with them on various tasks.

We also often watch YouTube clips from, e.g., documentaries on subjects connected to the topics in the articles to improve your listening skills and to inspire more lively debate.

The classes are held in a relaxed and fun atmosphere in which the focus is on improving your English skills as much as possible.

This is not a grammar course, but your teacher will explain any grammatical mistakes you make as they can prevent you from holding a fluent and accurate conversation. Material focused on improving your grammar will be provided for homework if necessary.

Some lessons will be based on role-plays, where you will work together in groups to solve a particular task. These fun lessons have been developed by the teachers to get you to talk together as much as possible to increase your fluency and confidence.
