Expand your vocabulary so you can talk about, amongst others, the news and the weather, new places, projects, future plans and food.

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.
Teaching material
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.

Practical information
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.

Tara recommends
Food and drink: Seafood is amazing in Ireland. The Galway Oyster and Seafood festival is well worth a visit. Irish lamb, traditional bread, cheese and anything dairy are also a must. 
Learning tips: Music can be a fun way of learning a new language. Listen to songs whilst reading the lyrics or singing along. This is how I improved my Danish pronunciation. Reading a book and discussing it with a friend is also enjoyable and productive.
Places to visit: Connemara, in the west of Ireland. Oscar Wilde referred to it as “A Savage Beauty”
Literature: Poetry, plays and crime novels. What she’d recommend ; The boy in the striped pyjamas ( John Boyne), The Field ( John B Keane), The Lost Symbol ( Dan Brown), The poetry of William Butler Yeats.
