Kursbesrivning/Course description: This is a great chance to improve your everyday English and become more confident when speaking in social and work situations.
Just come along and spend the weekend chatting about all things British with a small group of people who want to improve their pronunciation and knowledge of British culture.
What do we do in the course? In an informal setting we discuss interesting articles (news, short stories etc). We watch short films (TV, documentaries, comedies, history, drama, quizzes) and read out loud to each other. We also chat about how the language is used in different situations, why some words are pronounced in unexpected ways, and look at some confusing spellings (‘through/threw’ and ‘bough/bow’ for example) and we have great fun with tongue-twisters and some of English eccentricities - and we do not have any course-books or grammar study (hooray!)
The aim of the course is to help you speak everyday ‘British English’ with more confidence. You will be part of a small group in a relaxed environment, joining in conversations led by a native English speaker.
This course is suitable for you if you already have a medium-to-good level of English but simply need more practice talking in real life situations. You will also need a sense of humour, and you may even develop a British accent...
