A2 Everyday English - Mini Intensive
Practise everyday English intensively twice a week
Join our basic mini intensive course and learn how to communicate in everyday situations with common expressions and elementary vocabulary. You will practise everyday tasks, and you will learn to talk about things that happen now or have happened in the past. Classes 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:
- Social media
- Food and travel
You will also learn language that helps 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 also involve studying some grammar to give you a framework on which to build the language.
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 lessons. You will join the second half of the course, which started in February. We will study chapters 7-12 of the coursebook.
Navigate Elementary, Student's book, 2016 (Oxford University Press), ISBN 9780194566360. 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:
Øster Farimagsgade 5 A
1353 København K
The book includes access to an online skills programme for self-study outside the classroom. 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.
