This course is suitable for complete beginners or those with very little prior knowledge of the language. You will cover all four skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing, although the emphasis in class will be on speaking. There will be plenty of opportunity for practising pronunciation when learning key words and phrases; you will then use them in pairs or small group role-plays and adjust them to your personal needs. We will also look at authentic materials such as menus, signs and timetables, so that you will be able to make sense of essential written information.
Following this course, you will be able to get by in simple communicative situations and have a good grasp of the basics of your language of choice. You may also wish to continue your studies on the follow-up Continuation course with us.
These courses start running the week commencing 18 September 2017 for 12 weeks. There will be a 2 hour class every week. Please visit https://www.yorksj.ac.uk/study/professional/institution-wide-language-programme/ to view the timetable.
