Practise everyday English intensively twice a week

On this pre-intermediate intensive course, you become more fluent when speaking to new people.

This could be when having conversations about:


  • Travel

  • Education

  • Health

  • Food and the environment

  • Work


You will also learn language that will help you handle practical everyday situations such as giving opinions, making reservations, giving advice, making a complaint or answering questions at a job interview.

The primary focus is that you become better at speaking English, but you will also be given some short written assignments for homework. Most lessons also involve studying some grammar to give you a framework on which to build the language.

The course focuses on all 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 communicate with foreign family members or friends.
Preparation time: approx. 1-2 hours.

Course length
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.

Teaching material
Navigate Pre-Intermediate B1 Coursebook with DVD and Oxford Online Skills (Oxford University Press), ISBN 9780194566490. 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
1353 København K
The book includes access to an online skills programme and CD 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.

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


There is a maximum of 16 students in this class.

Diana Elvie Christensen

Diana Elvie Christensen har et CELTA-certifikat. 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!
