Obiettivi del corso
I am offering this innovative course to improve your vocabulary on specific topics. You will learn to speak confidently on different subjects using the appropriate expressions, idioms and collocations.
The course will be based on the Flipped learning method to give priority to your speaking practice during the lesson.
This means that before each lesson I will give students short videos and games to consolidate vocabulary/expressions – this is to do at home in your own time, before the lesson.
We will subsequently use these expressions, in small groups, during the lesson to speak about the relative topics.
Topics we will study include:
- Friends and Family
- Modern Technology
- Food and Nutrition
- Books Films and Art
- Working from Home
- University and Student Life
- People and Personalities
- Your Work and Career
- Fitness and Health
- Social Media
- School and Education
- Environment and Pollution
- Fashion and Shopping
These lessons will take place online
- to practise your speaking skills with me and other students in small groups
- without the noise of the other groups and
- from the comfort of your own home.
So how will you improve your grammar, phrasal verbs and vocabulary?
You will pick it up in context, which is the most natural way of learning and remembering.
We will study specific grammar points that appear in the materials and practise expressions we learn in these materials.
The materials will help us to practise with authentic English rather than simplified textbook English – this is just what you need to level-up and improve so that you can finally understand real natural English.
I will also explain any grammar points that you are unsure of and you would like to revise.
The exercises and (optional but recommended) homework will be prevalently aimed at getting you to practise your speaking. However, I will be making self-correcting exercises available for anyone who wants to practise their grammar systematically on points they feel weak in.
All the lessons will be exclusively in English to maximise English listening & speaking skills without translating but using definitions in English to help your comprehension of unknown words or expressions.
The class will join a dedicated WhatsApp group for immediate communication only in English.
Which level of English should you have?
Students of intermediate or upper-intermediate level will benefit from this course, particularly in speaking. It is not necessary to all be at exactly the same level as long as you can understand and communicate effectively with each other. Some of you will have better grammar skills than others, some will be able to understand native speakers more and others will be able to speak more confidently. But the aim of this course is to guide you to improving your English communication skills, even if they are not ‘perfect’, but communication is the first objective of learning a language. There’s no point in knowing your grammar perfectly if you can’t communicate effectively.
Materiale /attrezzature richiesti
This course will not follow a particular book but I will use a series of different audio-visual materials to stimulate your listening, reading and particularly your speaking skills. This course will not focus on writing.
All the extra materials will be made available week by week, lesson by lesson, in a dedicated Dropbox folder so that you can access them even if you are absent.
Modalità di erogazione
The lessons will take place online through Zoom, which is very easy to use even for non-technological students.
- at least of INTERMEDIATE LEVEL
- ACCESS to INTERNET
- at least a MOBILE PHONE
- preferably computer / tablet.
What do you need to do to improve your English?
- Study & speak it just little (15-20 mins) regularly every day.
Don’t worry if you make mistakes! We’re here to learn together and be very patient with each other.
I look forward to practising your English with you! See you in class!
