B2 Everyday English - Mini Intensive
This upper intermediate course offers you the chance to improve your fluency when interacting with native speakers. You 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:
- Smart technology
- Crime and justice
You will also learn language that helps you handle specific, more advanced practical situations such as negotiating, 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 involves 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.
