Reviews below are by students who have attended this course, regardless of the course teacher. Please be aware you may not be booking onto a course with the same teacher.

Strong on poetry, could do with a bit more prose in the mix. Oral focus is good, but maybe needs a bit more emphasis on writing (e.g. emails) as well. It would be good if there was an opportunity from time to time for students to raise questions on things they encounter in their reading (e.g. words, sentences, grammatical constructions).

our teacher managed well with a reasonably broad spectrum of levels of language. I always learnt useful stuff and enjoyed the lessons.
