Outline

This intensive English language course Is aimed at adults – including staff involved in education – who want to gain enough language and confidence to have basic conversations in English. The course is designed for students with a low level of English (around A1-A2). For any students involved in teaching, the course also shows a model of future teaching and learning of English.

As well as learning to do simple things such as order food and drink, say what they want/need to do and make simple requests, students will also learn to give and ask about basic opinions, likes and dislikes etc. People taking the course will also learn and practise their English through daily cultural activities and social activities with the teachers that happen outside the class. Most visits take place in the morning and classes are in the afternoon.
