The course has a strong focus on the language of analysis and debate. The teacher has her own superb selection of materials. Sound grammatical knowledge is assumed but occasional sessions are offered on problem areas. A lot of homework is set but people do what they can - the more you do, the more you get out of it. The teacher is immensely well-informed, enthusiastic and encouraging and realistic in her expectations. Having just taken the C2 exam, I felt the course had prepared me well, particularly in terms of enriching vocabulary and building speaking and listening capability
