Practise everyday English intensively twice a week
If you would like to improve your English 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 speaking to new people.

This could be when having conversations about:


  • Where you live

  • How you feel

  • Your daily life

  • Jobs and professions

  • Global issues


You will also learn language that will help you handle practical everyday situations such as asking for directions, making arrangements, giving advice, checking into a hotel or expressing and responding to opinions.

The primary focus is that you become better at speaking English, but you will also be given some short written assignments for homework. Each class will involve dedicated speaking tasks to help you gain confidence and take risks when speaking. Most lessons will also involve studying some grammar to give you a framework on which to build the language. Real students feature throughout the student book and are featured responding to discussion questions in mobile-friendly videos that you can watch outside the classroom. These activities also include fun mobile bite-sized learning activities. If you are busy, "Practice Extra" enables you to do your homework on smartphones, tablets, or computers outside of class.

The course focuses on 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
Evolve 3 Student's Book with Practice Extra 2019 (Cambridge University Press), ISBN 9781108405287 . 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 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 16 students in this class.

Vi tilpasser undervisningen til den aktuelle situation
På Studieskolen viser erfaringen, at man bedst lærer sprog ved at øve sig og tale meget. Det gør vi normalt i klassen, hvor I noget af tiden arbejder i par eller i grupper, så I når at sige så meget som muligt i løbet af timen, og underviseren går rundt mellem jer. På mange hold laver vi også øvelser, hvor I skal op og stå og gå rundt mellem hinanden.
Pga. covid-19 er det ikke muligt at undervise på den måde, for vi kan ikke holde nok afstand. Derfor tilpasser vi hele tiden vores metoder til den aktuelle situation, så vi kan holde afstand, og så det er sikkert for både undervisere og kursister at være på Studieskolen.
NB! Hvis vi på et tidspunkt må lukke for undervisning med fysisk fremmøde på grund af corona, fortsætter holdet med undervisning online. Det kan også ske, at vi må gennemføre en enkelt eller to undervisningsgange online - fx hvis underviseren skal testes.
Onlineundervisning på coronalukkede hold betragtes som almindelig gennemført undervisning, uanset om den enkelte deltager ønsker at gøre brug af denne mulighed eller ej. Hvis vi må ændre til onlineundervisning, bortfalder kompensation i form af tilbagebetaling eller erstatningsundervisning. Husk, at du altid kan annullere din tilmelding op til en uge, før dit kursus starter.

Ben Galvin

Ben is a TESOL qualified teacher with a strong business background gained in the telecoms and insurance industries. He is a qualified telecoms engineer and has worked on some interesting and unusual projects in his telecoms career. Ben is from West Yorkshire in the north of England and is a keen hiker. Living so close to the Yorkshire Dales National Park gave him the chance to walk in some of England’s most beautiful countryside.

Ben moved to Denmark and began teaching a year ago and he really enjoys watching his students develop their English skills and seeing their confidence grow. He loves meeting people from all over the world and learning about different cultures.

Ben recommends:
Food & drink: a homemade steak and ale pie and a pint of Black Sheep bitter in a cosy Dales pub, especially good after a long day’s hiking!
Places to visit: The beautiful and historic city of York, the modern and vibrant city of Leeds and the idyllic village of Kettlewell.
Learning tips: Watch English television and listen to English radio, it’s a great way to learn from native speakers. Never be afraid to speak, it doesn’t matter if you make mistakes.
