Improve your speaking and writing skills
This course is for you if you are already a competent user of English, but want to develop your speaking and writing skills further. You are on your way to the advanced level (C1), but not quite ready for it yet.

On this course, you improve your fluency and confidence when speaking English by discussing a variety of newspaper articles that focus on interesting current events. You will also watch YouTube clips connected to current events to improve your listening skills and to continue the discussions. Fun in-class collaborative exercises focus on increasing your vocabulary, fluency and confidence and your flexibility with the English language.

You improve your writing skills by focusing on aspects of the writing process such as more accurate use of grammar and punctuation, sentence structure, and essay organisation.
Two written assignments will be set and you will receive detailed constructive feedback from your teacher. We will also work on grammar as needed in order to further enhance both your speaking and writing skills.

When you complete the course, you will have improved your grammar and confidence when speaking English. Furthermore, you will have expanded your vocabulary and be able to converse about topics that are more complex.

Preparation time: approx. 1-2 hours per week + an extra 1-2 hours each time you submit a written assignment (twice during the course).

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. Han taler engelsk og dansk og kan også en del japansk og lidt spansk og tysk. 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
