The Intensive course is for students who want to maximize their language learning practice during their stay. The courses focus heavily on speaking and communication skills: the morning consists of 4 lessons in communication skills. These lessons provide the opportunity to learn the local culture and customs.
The classes stress the use of language in everyday situations. In 4 lessons each day, students will work on grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary, reading, writing, speaking and listening. Textbooks and a variety of other materials are used in instruction, including role-playing, newspapers, magazines and other materials. In class we talk about different topics. Topics include: fluency practice, media studies, film and theater, local culture, current events, politics, and research using the internet. Intermediate and advanced students also have the option of studying in the test-preparation and business classes.
