How is the course organised?

This course needs your active participation - you have to be prepared to talk as much as you can!! You'll be encouraged to speak as much as possible in class, to work in small groups and pairs, to work each lesson on all 4 skills: listening and understanding, speaking, reading and writing. We aim above all to give you confidence, to have fun - but to work hard as well!

What extra study or practice is expected outside of the class?

You'll always have work to review and practise from the previous lesson; you'll have sentences and words to learn by heart; you'll have homework set by the tutor. We recommend that you spend around 15 minutes a day on some kind of language practice - listening to a tape, watching a video, repeating working with a CD ROM, etc etc. You will need to organise and keep up to date your course file for assessment purposes, as well as for you and your tutor to keep a record of your progress (your ILP).

How will my progress be assessed?

Every lesson you are given different tasks so that progress can be assessed. Record of your work will be kept in your Individual Learning Plan to help record the steps taken towards achieving your goals.
