This English course is designed for people wanting to learn and practise their English in a small informal setting. The size of the group is always under 10 participants.

 

Each week, the main topic of discussion is sent out by email beforehand. This could be in the form of a news article to read through or a tailor-made pre-exercise to build vocabulary within an area of focus.

 

The teacher’s role on this course is to encourage civilized respectful debate among the participants and to help with pronunciation and vocabulary issues. The topics covered usually revolve around the latest news or trending social issues. Students are also invited to choose themes for discussion.

 

If you like to listen and practise speaking in this way, then this is the course for you. A typical evening runs as follows: first there will be a 60-minute training session, followed by a 15-minute break where complementary coffee/tea and tasty sandwiches are served. Afterwards there will be another training session lasting 1 hour and 15 minutes.
