Approach

A new chapter/topic is covered each week. The course involves three main parts - before the lesson, at the lesson and after the lesson. You will be instructed which listening and reading exercises should be done before each lesson. That way, you will get used to the new words at home at your own pace. The actual lesson time can be fully used to communicate. You will work in pairs or groups with other students to practise speaking and understanding through a series of relevant, engaging and interactive exercises - centred around that week’s topic. The lesson time will also be used for the functional grammar that is relevant for the topic. After the lesson, you will write 1 to 2 short written assignments per week. The teacher will give you personalised, written feedback on your written assignment. Home study of approx. 20-30 hours per course is essential in order to actually reach the level at the end of the course.
