|Practical classes and workshops||
Teaching consists of a two-hour interactive class each week for 12 weeks. Each week, students are encouraged to communicate with each other and with the teacher in English only. There are considerable number of speaking activities in which the students are required to engage with other class members to give ample opportunity for fluency practice within a comparatively sheltered environment. Each week, students are expected to complete exercises related to the work covered in class, to research in the library and on the internet in preparation for their assignments and to undertake specific communication exercises with native English speakers.
An assessed project in which students interview a native English speaker - in English - about their experiences of learning a foreign language. Students then use the interview to write an essay comparing their experience of learning English with that of their interviewee. The interviewee must not be/have been learning the student's native tongue.
Students are expected to use their class experience to improve their production of English outside the classroom. They are encouraged to record new vocabulary or slang and bring them to class for discussion.
