Practise everyday English intensively twice a week
Join our basic level A2 mini intensive course and learn how to communicate in everyday situations with common expressions and elementary vocabulary. You will practise everyday tasks and describe in simple terms aspects of the present, past and the environment around you. Classes will take place twice a week. On this intensive course, you will become more fluent when speaking to new people.

This could be when having conversations about:


  • Jobs

  • Climate

  • Health

  • Social media

  • Food and travel


You will also learn language that will help you handle practical everyday situations such as introducing yourself, asking and answering questions, explaining and solving a problem, checking for information, ordering in a restaurant and speaking on the phone.

The primary focus is that you become better at speaking English, but you will also be given some short written assignments for homework. The assignments will include a work email and social media post. 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.

Course length
There are 14 teaching sessions on the course. Each session is 3.5 lessons. You will join the second half of the course, which started in September. We will study chapters 7- 12 of the coursebook.

Teaching material
Evolve 2 Student's Book with Practice Extra 2019 (Cambridge University Press), ISBN 9781108405263. 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.

Shellie Hansen

Shellie Hansen is a CELTA and TESOL qualified teacher and holds an MA in counseling psychology. She started teaching English to children in the Philippines, but in 2003 moved back home to Australia, where she began teaching adults. She also lived in the US for 7 years and in the UK for 2, which is why her accent changes every now and then. She is now happily settled in Denmark with her Danish husband and children. She also works with both children and adults in Copenhagen. What Shellie likes about teaching is meeting people from all over the world, and learning about their cultures while helping them reach their language goals.

Shellie recommends
Food and drink: In Sydney – have breakfast or brunch at one of the many outdoor cafés and have lunch at an Asian food court in Chinatown.
Learning tips: Read as much as you can from menus to magazines, watch films and online TED talks. Don’t be afraid of making mistakes – just speak, speak, speak!!
Places to visit: Bondi Beach cliff walk in Sydney, scuba diving in the Philippines and get lost in the energy of New York City.
Literature: Shellie reads anything and everything. What she’s reading now; The Traveller trilogy by John Twelve Hawks & Wonderland by Haruki Murakami.
