    Objectives and methodology

    Methodology
    This is an intensive course where all language skills will be practised: reading comprehension, written expression, oral expression and interaction, listening comprehension.

    Through the communicative approach, students will be able to improve their comprehension and expression as well as expanding their vocabulary and the use of set-phrases, gaining fluency and accuracy.
