Teacher: Petr Konvičný Lessons: 4/week
The aim of this course is to let the students explore various spheres of the English language and to use it in daily life and in a natural way. We aim to use the students’ own experiences, opinions, knowledge and beliefs as a basis for various activities practised in the class, resulting in improving the ability to use the language correctly and effectively.
All language skills (speaking, writing, reading and listening) will be covered by doing activities of various kinds. In some cases we might go deeper into the language, e.g. explore the differences between varieties of English, search for the specialities of the sounds and pronunciation of the English language (phonetics and phonology), touch the topic of literature,etc. The content itself can be varied according to the students’ needs and interests.
The course will require active participation and willingness to do some homework after classes.
