Fine-tune your speaking and writing skills
This course is for you if you are already an advanced English student, but you would like to develop your English speaking and writing skills even further. Perhaps you haven't used your English for a while and you lack confidence and/or need a brush up. On this course, you will improve your spoken fluency by discussing thought-provoking news stories taken from leading current affairs publications supplemented by YouTube excerpts to inspire debate. You will join a course that started in September. There are 9 weeks left on this part of the course. You will meet once a week for three lessons.

The topics we discuss include the environment, sustainable diet, health, gender equality, art and travel & tourism.

In each lesson, we will focus on broadening your vocabulary and improving your pronunciation through, for example, studying syllables and word stress, prefixes and suffixes and the definitions of new words.

Three written assignments will be set for homework. These will be discursive essays based on the topics discussed in the lessons. We will focus on how to structure your writing and you will receive extensive feedback from your teacher on grammar, spelling and style. Additional homework will be in the form of advanced vocabulary exercises.

This is not a grammar course, so your teacher will give you relatively brief explanations about grammatical mistakes, although extra material that focuses on identified mistakes can be provided for homework.

Some lessons will be based on role-plays, where you will work together in groups to solve a particular task. These fun lessons have been developed by the teachers to get you to talk together as much as possible.

Teaching material
You don't need to buy a book for this course. Your teacher will select suitable material, which is included in the price.

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 including the written assignments.

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.
