Speak English fluently and pronounce the words correctly
This course is for you if you are already at an advanced level, but would like to progress even further by broadening your vocabulary and learning how to pronounce English correctly. Perhaps you have not used your English for some time and you need to boost your confidence or brush up your skills.

We will discuss topics in much more depth than at the previous levels. For example, instead of just talking about what sort of art we like, we might discuss how you decide whether something is art, and who makes the decision.

The topics will be selected according to what you and the other students would like to talk about, but we usually discuss some of the following subjects: Art, drugs and society, culture shock and consumerism.

As well as learning many new words on the course, there will also be a focus on pronunciation, such as syllables and word stress, and you will learn some new techniques for pronouncing the language correctly.

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. Extra material focused on improving your grammar can be provided for self-study 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.

Preparation time: approx. 1-2 hours.

Wynn Stewart

Wynn er født i Californien og er halv amerikaner og halv brite, eftersom has mor var "andengenerationsindvandrer" i USA (af dansk afstamning), hans far var oprindelig fra Skotland, og hans farmor var nordmand. Wynn har boet i USA, Japan, England og Danmark, i den rækkefølge. Fordi hans baggrund er lidt indviklet, plejer han blot at fortælle, at han betragter sig selv som en "verdensborger". Han er gift med Anne-Grete og er far til fire amerikanske/britiske/danske børn.

Wynn har en master i engelsk og samfundsfag. Har taler engelsk og dansk og kan også en del japansk og lidt spansk. Han holder af sprog og sprogundervisning og elsker at se forbedring i elever. Han kan undervise på alle niveauer, men foretrækker CAE, Proficiency og businessengelsk.
Wynn er glad for to citater, der mere eller mindre opsummerer hans syn på undervisning: "Be the guide on the side, not the sage on the stage" og "They don't care how much you know until they know how much you care".

Hans fritidsinteresser inkluderer læsning, løbetræning, film og brætspil. Han tror på, at hver person har et formål i livet, og at "der er mere mellem himmel og jord".

Wynn anbefaler:
Food and drink:
Pizza, pasta, a durum shawarma, japanese "okonomiyaki" or a good Caeser salad, washed down with a mango lassi (I don't drink alcohol or smoke)
Learning tips: Remember to read and listen. Be curious and willing to make mistakes. Practice may make perfect, but don't be a perfectionist.
Places to visit: London! If you're tired of London, you're tired of life. 
Literature: Anything by Ray Bradbury, John Steinbeck or C.S. Lewis
