In the summer we welcome students who want to combine intensive English language learning with the discovery of various aspects of Danish culture and society through workshops, lectures, excursions and lots of other fun activities!
The main objective of the language section of the course is to gain self-confidence in using English in your daily life. We will cover all language skills (i.e. grammar, speaking, reading, writing, listening, pronunciation, and vocabulary). We will however, try to focus on speaking and developing skills to talk about oneself; one’s culture and background, describing feelings, expressing needs and opinions, etc. Other topics will be determined by the students’ own interests. In addition to grammar drills, listening to CDs, watching video clips, reading articles, playing games etc., we will use the student’s own experiences as a basis for the speaking activities. The main goal is to have fun while gaining the self-confidence to express oneself in English!
A dictionary will be necessary. The course will require active participation and willingness to do some homework after classes. There will be approximately 48 teaching hours of English.
Class size will be limited to 12 students whose English level should be between elementary and intermediate. If there is enough demand, additional classes may be added.
