B2 Everyday English - Mini Intensive
This upper intermediate course offers you the chance to improve your fluency when interacting with native speakers. You will become better at reacting spontaneously and taking part in conversation without strain. 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 in-depth conversations about more abstract or complex issues such as:
- Making decisions
- Internet information
- People's characteristics
- Dealing with stress
You will also learn language that will help you handle specific, more advanced practical situations such as: negotiating a price, showing interest in ideas, giving reassurance, 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.
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.
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:

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.

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.
