Speaking & Listening

     This is the upper-intermediate level speaking and listening course, incorporating a flipped learning system through the EF SOLO online platform. At the beginning of the academic year, learners complete oral proficiency tests to be placed into the most appropriate level for learning efficiency.

      By the end of the course students will be confident in a wide range of communicative skills, including being able to communicate indirectly on the topic of gender issues, differentiate between the language used when making or refusing requests in different contexts, explain rules of sports and games in detail, and discuss social networking. 

      The course incorporates an upper-intermediate level grammar focus, concentrating on all past and future tenses as well as phonological focuses on the use of connected speech and sentence stress. Learners will receive a model of the language they should produce by the end of each lesson in the form of an audio clip, typically a dialogue or short speech. They are then guided through the processes of language clarification, controlled language practice and free speaking practice by the teacher, who regularly assesses their learning against the class aims and objectives and finally provides feedback and error correction.  

      The objectives of this course are to build learner competence in speaking and listening to an advanced level, to further increase confidence and fluency when maintaining a conversation with friends and classmates, to improve the soft skills of listening for gist and listening for specific information, to hone the learner’s use of vocabulary and grammar while widening their range, and to encourage learner autonomy outside of the classroom setting. Assessment comes in the form of continuous online homework, a formal speaking midterm exam and formal speaking and listening final exams.

Writing

      This is the upper-intermediate level general writing course. By the end of the course the learners will be introduced to formal academic writing in English and its relevant conventions, develop their understanding of academic writing style and structure, and develop practical writing skills in a number of familiar contexts. Using a ground-up approach, the course guides students through the basics of academic writing – from pre-writing, to writing, to review, to editing. By the middle of the course, learners will produce one complete piece of argumentative academic coursework, including a strong logical argument, a well-structured outline, grammatically correct sentences, an engaging introduction with an effective thesis, and finally an impactful conclusion. In the second half of the course, learners will develop their practical writing skills in contexts such as summarizing information, writing movie reviews, writing blogs and journals, writing emails, writing CVs and cover letters. Assessment comes in the form of continuous homework assignments that preview and review class content, a midterm piece of academic coursework and a final written exam. This course is designed to prepare learners to take the upper-intermediate level full academic writing course in the second semester.
