OVERVIEW

The course is aimed at consolidating and strengthening students’ English skills at a pre-intermediate level (equivalent to B1-B2 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages). 

AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

Acquisition of the basics of the language in order to communicate in everyday situations and understand the general meaning of written and oral messages.

TEACHING METHODS

Lectures with interactive activities.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The course consists of 36 hours of lectures.  Classes are conducted interactively by means of activities in the course text (see below) and other sources.  Given the likely number and disparity of level of the students, the lessons should be complemented individual study outside the classroom.  In this regard, students are strongly encouraged to further their language skills (reading, writing, listening, speaking) by attending the Department’s language laboratories and taking advantage of the wide range of resources available on the Internet.
