B1 Everyday English - Mini Intensive
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:
- Food and the environment
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.
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 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:

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.
