This beginner's course will give you a good introduction to the language. It focuses on the four skills you need when you are learning a new language: speaking, listening, reading and writing so you will experience well-balanced progress.
On the course, you will learn the essential grammar and vocabulary needed in everyday situations. You will practice these essentials through role-plays, short discussions and written exercises. There will be a focus on accuracy, which in turn leads to increased confidence in speaking. Topics covered will include, amongst others, introductions, first meetings and asking questions.
Level A1 weekly is divided into 6 parts. Each part consists of 15 lessons. To achieve a full level we recommend that you complete 90 lessons.
On this course, you will study chapters 1- 2 of the Navigate Elementary A1 Coursebook.
Navigate A1 Beginner Coursebook with DVD and Oxford Online Skills (Oxford University Press) ISBN 978-0194566230. We will study selected pages. You should buy the book before the start of the course. You can either buy the book online at www.academicbooks.dk or at their shop:
