This course will give advanced students an opportunity to discuss a range of topics in order to help them develop fluent conversational skills. The focus will be on both the information and the language aspects of news and general interest articles. All the reading material will be provided by the teacher.
«Speaking, chatting, discussing with other people is probably the best way to learn a language: We often want to explain what we think about a certain topic and to get to know how others see the world. If you can express yourself, use the words you know, and respond to others, the social situation can bring out your best! Richard Cooper is up for the task to get everyone speaking and build a good group atmosphere. He will also provide short texts from English news sources so that you can develop vocabulary and expressions and prepare for the sessions in advance. So let’s start talking!»
