Course details

Brief Description:

The Advanced English course is intended for learners who have a good command of English, and wish to develop a wider and more authentic range of vocabulary and grammar via listening, speaking and reading. It will focus on high-frequency but advanced language, both formal and informal, which can be used in all areas of everyday life.

Applicants for this course do not need to have passed any exams, but should preferably be able to use language flexibly and effectively for social, professional or academic purposes, and produce clear, well-structured, detailed speech on complex subjects. They should be able to cope with listening and reading exercises of a level equivalent to their own speaking or slightly higher.

The course can include practice of writing if there is demand for it, and individual requests for particular topics can be catered for.

You should be at a high B2 or C1 level. Adult learn and train ask all English as a Foreign Language learners to complete an assessment test for placement purposes. To book an appointment, call the office on 01223 712340.

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

Typical grammar topics covered include ways to create emphasis, conditional sentences and hypothetical situations, different uses of the infinitive and gerund (“-ing” form), relative clauses and the use of modal verbs such as will, must etc for ability, permission and logical deduction.

Vocabulary work will include idioms and slang, phrasal verbs, common collocations (word pairs), and how to generate different forms of words using prefixes and suffixes, as well as vocabulary on specific subjects such as work, leisure and education.
