• Describe people, places and events
• Exchange information on a variety of topics/situations
• Give and follow specific instructions
• Express opinions
• Reading information

During the course you will take part in varied activities. These are designed to help you understand and use the language discussed effectively.

Homework will provide an opportunity for self- study including the use of online resources.
By the end of the course, you will have gained knowledge in the four skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing.
