    Objectives and methodology

    Objective
    To consolidate and expand the knowledge of the English language from a different perspective: English as a communication tool and as an individual’s way of expression for studies, travels and career.

    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. The methodology employed includes the use of interviews, role-plays, sketches, games and activities based on the viewing of segments from movies and tv series, in a open-minded and participative class atmosphere.
