A chi è rivolto
UPPER INTERMEDIATE – ADVANCED Level ENGLISH
Obiettivi del corso
What does the title of this level class imply?
It means that you will be taken ‘upwards’ from your current upper intermediate or advanced level to improving your English all round, but 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.
This course will not follow a particular book but I will use a series of different kinds of audio and visual materials to stimulate your listening, reading and particularly your speaking skills. Not a lot of emphasis will be put on your writing skills which you can, however, practise when preparing speaking tasks, since you will most surely have practised a lot of writing at school and in the traditional textbook lessons.
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.
Which level of English should you have?
Students of upper intermediate or advanced level will benefit from this course, with a great focus on speaking.
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.

(Well experimented during the Covid lockdown with total satisfaction of all the participants) .

The class will join a dedicated WhatsApp group for immediate communication only in English.
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.
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!
