Practise your competent English intensively twice a week

If you already have a good grasp of English but want to get better at speaking fast, we recommend one of our intensive courses. You can quickly broaden your vocabulary and improve your spoken English significantly. On this intensive course, you will become more fluent when having discussions with friends or work colleagues.

This could be in-depth conversations about more abstract or complex issues such as:


  • Crime and justice

  • Travel and adventure

  • Different cultures and communities

  • Emotions and behaviour

  • The news


You will also learn language that will help you handle specific more advanced practical situations such as retelling a news story, reflecting on life events and choices, starting a conversation with a stranger, telling and reacting to a story or agreeing and disagreeing politely.

The primary focus is that you become better at speaking English, but you will also be given written assignments for homework. Most lessons will also involve studying some grammar to ensure that your English is as accurate as possible.

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 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.

Teaching material
Navigate Upper-Intermediate, Student's book, 2016 (Oxford University Press), ISBN 9780194566759. 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 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.

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 16 students in this class.

Lakambini Sitoy

Lakambini, or Bing, has published a novel and two collections of short stories and has won fellowships and awards for her literary work. She holds an MA from Roskilde University in English Studies/ Cultural and Language Encounters, and has worked as a lifestyle and opinion editor, a newspaper columnist and editorial writer, and a teacher of communication, creative writing and non-fiction.

Learning tips: Read as much as you can -- take out a good old-fashioned, professionally-edited book from bibliotek.dk. Record yourself in monologues or conversations. Look up the meaning of unfamiliar words and expressions.

Literature: Julian Barnes, Hilary Mantel, Chandler Burr, Suzanne Collins (The Hunger Games), to name a few.
