Practise your competent 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 having discussions with friends or work colleagues.

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


  • Dealing with crime

  • Technology and communication

  • 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 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 Level 5 Student's Book with Practice Extra 2019 (Cambridge University Press), ISBN 9781108405348. 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, 2019
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.

Diana Elvie Christensen

Diana Elvie Christensen har et CELTA-certifikat, og hun underviser meget i Business English. Hun er født i Jamaica og flyttede senere til USA. Hun har boet i Danmark siden 1990. 
"What I love about teaching English is that I enjoy being a mentor, a motivator and the biggest cheerleader for my students. I believe that every student has potential and my job is to exploit that potential in a stimulating, creative and fun environment".

Diana anbefaler:
Food and drink: Chill out at Rick's cafe in Negril, Jamaica with a Pina Colada spiked with Jamaican rum or a cool Red Stripe beer and some seafood!
Places to visit: Jamaica - Reach Falls, Port Antonio; Negril Beach (7 miles/11km of pure white sand bordering turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea!)
U.S.A. - Yosemite National Park, California(see the sequoia trees); Nappa Valley, California.
Cultural events: Classical music concerts in Central park and Rock music concerts on Jones Beach,New York, July and August
Learning tips: Read a good book every 3 months and a well written newspaper like the Guardian/U.S.A Today every day.
Literature: My all time favourite is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. There is nothing like an intellectual fight between a man and a woman!
