What is the course about?
This is a Learning for Personal Interest course that will enable you to understand and participate in discussions concerning familiar and unfamiliar topics and present clear, detailed arguments and opinions on a wide variety of issues of interest to you.
Speaking, listening, reading and writing skills will be developed through the study of a range of topics presented in a variety of written and audio-visual formats (newspaper or magazine articles, documentary programmes, literature and film). Themes covered could include: travel, lifestyle issues, sport and leisure pursuits, music, art and culture, the world of work, current affairs and global issues, as well as other topics related to your personal interests. Through these modules, you will also gain an insight into the culture and customs of some of the countries where the language is spoken.
