Your new English speaking friends!As of February 1, 2018, plan on spending your Thursday evenings with a small and interesting group of people who have the same goal as you do; improving their spoken English. We will be discussing a variety of topics and using International Express Intermediate (suitable for CEF levels B1/B2) as the foundation for our course. The International Express series from Oxford is designed for students of all ages and presents a variety of stimulating topics for discussion. It relies on an inductive approach to language learning, which means you get a lot of input and work out the grammar based on how the language is used. This approach helps you develop a “feel” for the language and is a refreshing break from the deductive approach which requires the internalization of often very complicated rules. The book also offers plenty of communicative activities to keep you talking! The latest edition also offers students the opportunity to view a video series that parallels the topics discussed in the course. As a teacher, I cannot stress the importance of this kind of interaction with the language. The amount of peripheral learning that takes place should not be underestimated. This class is for anyone who wants to get back into English but does not want to spend a lot of money. For 75 Euros a months, you get to work with a pedagogically qualified native speaker of English, and the contract gives you the option of leaving the group with one month's notice. This is a great way to learn more about Masters' English.To make sure that each participant has enough time to speak, the size of the group is limited to six participants.
I have been using the Interational Express series with my students for many years now. It is one of the best series of textbooks out there. Kudos to the authors, editors, and course desigers.
