• exchange information about self, work and life
• express likes and dislikes / agreements and disagreements
• exchange information about past events
• describe appearance and personalities
• explain simple health problems
• make arrangements using the simple future
You will be given homework to reinforce classroom learning.
How will I be taught?
The emphasis on this course is on listening and speaking. The lesson focus on language that is required in authentic situations. To help you develop language skills the course will be conducted mainly in the foreign language. You will work through different activities individually, in pairs and in small groups, using a variety of learning methods and resources (role-play, games…). To ensure your progression, it is essential to attend on a regular basis. We also recommend that you spend 1 – 2 h each week doing private study as directed by your tutor.
With your tutor, you will monitor and record your progress on your learning plan (ILP)
What do I need to bring with me?
The course book will be discussed at the first session if appropriate. Students will need to bring a pen and paper and an A4 ring binder for handouts, although we advise students not to buy anything until after the first session.
What can I do next?
After this, the next appropriate follow-on course is an Intermediate course. The tutor will be able to advise or check www.kentadulteducation.co.uk.
What do I need to join the course
