Learning Objectives

This course will provide the student with a basic knowledge of the English language.

Program

The course will commence with a placement test strongly recommended for ALL students.  The placement test will take place on 7th October 2020, in the Sala Incisori di Legato Albani Piazza della repubblica, 13.  This will enable the student to verify his/her level of English.  Students with a result of A1 and A2 are advised to attend the course; students with a result of B1 or higher are nevertheless encouraged to attend, since, as well as offering an invaluable opportunity to interact with a native speaker, the course will provide terminology specifically for Education Science.

The course will commence on 7th October 2020.
There will be 4 hours of lessons per week from 7th October to 10th December 2020.

It will consist of all four abilities of English Language teaching (ELT) - Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening.

The methodology will be a combination of individual, pair and group work.
