What is the course about?

Learners on this course will develop their grammar skills for writing, reading, speaking and listening. The grammar will always be set within interesting and relevant topics and the emphasis will be on the accurate use of grammar to say or write what you mean. We set targets and review them regularly, so individual key areas needing attention are given special focus.

What will we cover?

We will study grammar in the context of speaking and writing about topics which relate to life in the UK, looking for work, communicating at work, study skills, socialising & education, cultural life & community. The grammar we cover will include:
• verbs tenses and forms such as past simple, present perfect simple vs present perfect continuous, past perfect
• different conditional (if-clauses)

• feel more confident in your use of grammar to express yourself accurately and to talk about the world

Your tutor will also work with you individually so you know how to improve and how to work in a way that improves your learning. You will need to do work outside the classroom and use Google Classroom to help you.

Are there any other costs? Is there anything I need to bring?
