Outline and objectives

This course aims to support and strengthen students’ existing English skills by focusing on integrating the four skills of Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening and building a solid foundation of skill strategies and language structures to allow communication on a range of engaging topics and situations. It uses the textbook’s wide range of relevant topics and themes focused on society and culture as a springboard for collaboration in brainstorming and planning of ideas, writing short essays, discussions, presentations and simple debate activities, with a focus on encouraging active engagement, learner autonomy, and confidence.


By the end of this course, students will be better able to:
• make basic presentations (with PowerPoint, etc.) in English, in pairs, groups and individually
• build ability to listen to prepared speeches and simple multi-party interactions
• engage in and lead simple discussions on a range of topics
• communicate actively by employing simple strategies for explaining, checking and confirming
• express opinions supported by simple reasoning
• work together with other students in simple collaborative projects
• write coherent, logical English extended paragraphs on a range of topics (Approx. 250 words in length)
• build general vocabulary related to the reading, listening, writing and discussion topics
• improve reading skills (skimming, scanning, comprehension) using short, level-appropriate articles
• develop listening skills (gist, detail and note-taking) using authentic speakers discussing level-appropriate subjects.
