The course stimulates the reading of short stories (by well-known authors and by young emerging authors who propose various writing styles and genres) using a variety of linguistic activities (syntax, vocabulary, morphology) and comprehension exercises. The course challenges the student's imagination and creativity both at an individual level where the student has plenty of time to understand and analyse a short authentic text, but also working with other students in class. Group analysis helps to consider other points of view but also to explain one's own, giving students the opportunity to have a conversation. 320 plus hours of prior learning assumed.

DELIVERY MODE

  • Face-to-Face

TEXTBOOK

  • Tutor supplied material

COURSE OUTLINE

  • Show the language in context and in various situations: family, relationships, work, religion, food, and culture in general
  • See related grammar balanced with communicative elements and comprehension exercises
  • Use of modern and classical language with systematic work on the 4 language skills: speaking, listening, reading, and writing
  • Apply methodical review of phrasal structures and vocabulary
  • Group analysis and one's own in conversation

LEARNING OUTCOMES

By the end of this course, students should be able to:

  1. Understand a wide range of demanding, longer texts, and recognise implicit meaning.
  2. Interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party.
  3. Produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.

LANGUAGE CLASS TRANSFER POLICY

If you are a new WEA Student and enrol into a language class and subsequently find that you are at the wrong level (whether too high or too low), you are permitted to transfer into another more suitable class at no additional cost, provided that the request is made within the first two classes and is in writing from your tutor directly to the Education Manager. After that point, an administration fee of $30 will apply.
