The aim of the 14-week online English course is to help participants develop their language proficiency. It provides advice and recommends activities in all four macroskills (speaking, listening, reading and writing). The focus is on developing your practical language skills with specific advice on aspects of each skill including, for example, pronunciation in speaking, grammar in speaking and writing, skimming and scanning in reading and a variety of experience in listening. All workbooks end with specific advice on using what has been taught in real-life activities. This is a practical course intended to help you develop your everyday ability in English.
Workbooks will be emailed to you every Saturday morning in PDF format. Workshops will be conducted via Zoom every Friday.
Friday workshops will commence at 3 PM (AEST).
What can you expect?
Every Saturday at 5 AM (AEST), you will be sent a new workbook via email. Each workbook will have a different focus and will provide theory and practicals to complete. The workbook must be completed and emailed back to firstname.lastname@example.org by 9 AM every Thursday. Any questions you have should be posted to the private Facebook group (in the applicable thread) by 10 AM every Thursday.
Every Friday you will be invited to attend a Zoom workshop. This group workshop will run for one to two hours and be conducted by one of our accredited tutors. During the workshop, your tutor will go through the workbook for the week and provide answers. Any questions you post in the group will be answered during this workshop. During the workshop, 30 minutes or so will be set aside to discuss the practical activities you were required to complete during the week. You will be required to orally discuss the “real-life use” activity that you completed for the week.
