The aims of this course are to increase students' speaking proficiency in English to:
1) obtain core knowledge and skills for speaking that can be applied in real life;
2) provide cultural context to help in choosing what level of formality or language in general to use;
3) to teach students to be able to improve speaking skills on their own outside of the classroom.
1) Most common English vocabulary, building on studentsf existing knowledge;
2) Key expressions useful in situations that students are likely to encounter in their lives;
3) Useful grammar structures;
4) Pronunciation skills;
5) Cultural knowledge;
6) Tools to understand and interact in English in the real world.
Students will prepare for class by studying key vocabulary and expressions, as well as by considering the topic to be studied.
In class, speaking will be the main activity, starting with more structured, basic communication and finishing each lesson with a real conversation or a simulation of a transaction.
After class, students will review and reflect on the lesson and the language learned.
Students are encouraged to record themselves in class to check progress and identify areas to practice more.
Students are encouraged to be active in class. It is fine to make mistakes when speaking as native speakers and the greatest learners of a language can also make mistakes. It is also encouraged to ask questions if you donft understand or if what you learn seems different to what you learned in the past.
