A beginner’s course will equip students with the language skills (listening, speaking and reading skills) and knowledge necessary to communicate effectively with native speakers in the sorts of short daily situations they may reasonably be expected to encounter like introducing themselves, expressing likes and dislikes, expressing daily routines, asking for directions, asking common questions, talking about food, etc.
This module builds on work previously introduced in a foreign language beginner’s course and it is appropriate for students with GCSE or equivalent. It aims to further develop the ability to communicate verbally on everyday matters, with reference to the present and past and to express personal opinions. At the same time, it will widen students’ repertoire of written genres (e.g. narratives, biographies) and punctuation conventions. This course is for students preparing to reach an A2 level (Waystage) on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
Lower Intermediate (B1)
This module assumes some knowledge of the target language and is designed to further develop the students’ ability to understand the spoken and written word and to communicate orally and in writing in a variety of situations in a foreign-speaking environment. Students will be presented with a range of texts extracted from magazines and newspapers as well as TV and radio programmes dealing with familiar issues and current affairs. This course is for students preparing to reach an A2 level (Threshold) on the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.
