Course Description and Pedagogical Methods:

The students are organised in level-groups following the results of a placement test at the beginning of the year. In this course, the students will practice the four main skills for communication with a focus on reading comprehension, and will review some basic grammar concepts. The students will work with up-to-date materials from journals and magazines, internet articles, videos, etc. Students will improve their comprehension, fluency, and confidence in spoken and written English through individual practice and regular participation in pair and group work, oral activities, reading and listening comprehension exercises, and general classwork.

Class activities will include listening, reading, writing, and informal/formal speaking to understand, learn, remember, and explain information from both written and spoken materials. Also,to help you improve your grammar and writing, we will have online grammar practice with mini-reviews when necessary.

You will have:

  • Classwork, pop quizzes and online homework that are part of the grade,
  • A midterm exam level-based on the grammar and vocabulary studied in class,
  • A final exam common to all levels to check your progression. The final will focus on reading comprehension.
