Learning Objectives

The main goal of the course is practising students’ reading and speaking skills so that they can easily understand a text and take part in a conversation about everyday life topics. Furthermore, the course aims at providing students with the grammar points and common vocabulary (B1 level -according to the Common European Framework of Reference) listed below (see “program”).

Particularly, the course is based on:

- the study of some vocabulary (B1 level) through reading activities;

- the study of the grammar topics listed below;

- activities to improve students’ speaking skills.

Program

The course is principally focused on reading and speaking activities on general topics so that students can practise to have a good command of the language.

The course provides students with a short overview of the following grammar topics, in particular: 

- articles (indefinite, definite, no article);

- the Present Simple and Continuous;

- the Present Perfect Simple;

- the Past Simple and Continuous;

- past habits- Used to;

- the Past Perfect Simple;

- future - Will, Going to, Present Simple, Present Continuous;

- Modal verbs;

- the passive form;

- comparative and superlative adjectives and adverbs;

- pronouns and determiners (many, much, some, any and so on)

Learning Achievements (Dublin Descriptors)

Knowledge and understanding:

At the end of the course, students should show a certain level of knowledge of the grammar and vocabulary topics above-mentioned (B1 level - according to the Common European Framework of Reference). Consequently, they should be confident enough to understand the key points of a text/conversation about general topics.

Applying knowledge and understanding:

At the end of the course, students should be able to:

- develop a reasonable level of knowledge of the grammar topics and vocabulary studied during the course so that the interaction with other speakers becomes quite possible and meaningful;

- understand the key points of a text about general topics;

- ask and answer questions about general topics.

Making judgements:

 At the end of the course, students should be able to:

-  express their preferences for/opinions about general topics;

- develop a certain level of awareness of their language mistakes so that they can correct them.

Communication skills:

 At the end of the course, students should be able to:

- develop a reasonable level of fluency so that the interaction with other speakers becomes quite possible and meaningful;

- take part in a discussion based on the topics of a reading activity.

Learning skills:

Students should have a reasonable level of knowledge of the grammar topics and vocabulary studied during the course in order to become independent enough to deepen their understanding of those topics.
