What is the course about?

The course will enable you to understand more complex discussions concerning familiar topics. You will work towards being able to participate in conversations with a degree of fluency and spontaneity and express viewpoints on a range of issues. The emphasis will be on developing your speaking, listening, reading and writing skills as well as understanding of the rules of the language. The structure of the language is introduced through everyday topics and practical situations, and will be explained and reinforced using resources created by the tutor. You will also gain an insight into the culture, history and customs of the country. Topics could include: travel, healthy living, leisure pursuits - sports, cinema and music- and topics that are related to your personal interests.

What previous experience, knowledge or qualifications do I need for this course?
