HOW THE COURSE WILL BE TAUGHT: A series of structured lessons will be followed. These are backed up by video and Audio material. Key phrases and vocabulary are thoroughly drilled at each stage. Exercises at each stage see students working in pairs to maximise conversation opportunity. Games, a song or two, and a couple of poems are introduced as appropriate.

A suitable text book and dictionary (which should not cost more than £12 second hand) will be discussed at the first session of the course.
