A short description of the course

We will focus on the development of vocabulary (words and expressions) and the improvement of grammar (the structure of English words and sentences). More specifically, the study of vocabulary will aim at expanding the range of topic-related words as well as collocations, that is, combinations of words that generally go together in the English language. For example, which verb would you use with a conclusion? Make? Do? Or draw? Some of the grammar topics will include the study of nouns, adjectives, adverbs, verbs (tenses, the passive voice), word order (in sentences and questions) as well as some other aspects of English grammar.

Vocabulary and grammar will be practiced by doing listening, reading, speaking and writing tasks. The tasks will also aim at developing school students’ critical thinking skills, creativity, the ability to express their ideas logically when speaking and writing. It appeared during my teaching experience that these are the skills students often lack.
