Course Content and Methodology

Core Content:

  • Social Issues and Trends
  • Political and Artistic Culture
  • Grammar


  • We use authentic texts on contemporary issues which we use to discuss, debate, argue, summarize, and translate.
  • We listen to authentic audio material such as Kerboodle sound files and live news items to broaden our range of vocabulary and strengthen our listening skills.
  • We do grammar exercises regularly to master the rules and structures and then practise these independently in our speaking and writing.
