A1.4 Conversation and grammar for almost beginners
Expand your vocabulary so you can talk about, amongst others, the news and the weather, new places, projects, future plans and food.
You will learn how to order food and drink, tell a story, talk about your favorite places and talk about changes.
You will also improve your grammar and master, amongst others, the use of will and going to, prepositons such as on/in/at and phrases using would like. You will be given written assignments such as reviewing an event, writing invitations and thank you cards.
Before the course starts, we recommend that you buy the book: Navigate A1 Beginner Course book with DVD and Oxford Online Skills (Oxford University Press), ISBN 9780194566230. We will study selected pages from chapters 9-10 of the book. The book comes with a DVD and access to an online skills programme for self-study outside the classroom.
Because this is a beginner course, we do not use a business English course book unlike on our other courses, but your teacher will introduce business topics whenever possible.
You can buy the book here: academicbooks.dk or at Academic Books, Øster Farimagsgade 5A, 1353 Copenhagen K.
You will have access to our online learning platform, Moodle, where you will find the course plan, teaching material, homework and other useful online resources for learning English, which your teacher has selected for you and your class. Via Moodle, you can also communicate with your teacher and fellow students. This course is for you if you have already completed courses at A1 level, beginner courses at another language school, or you have picked up some English elsewhere and would like to develop your skills further.
The number of students on all courses at the Cambridge Institute is just 4-8. Small classes mean that your teacher has more time to help you personally during each lesson.
Preparation time: 1-2 hours per week.
