This module is aimed at students who have already attained a high level of proficiency and extends receptive and productive skills to a highly sophisticated level encompassing several registers. Strategies and study methods will be further developed to increase independent learning. Cultural knowledge of the country where the language is spoken will be enhanced through students’ research. Teaching is through practical language classes involving whole group and small-group/pair-work and one-to-one activities, aimed at developing all language skills, with particular emphasis on oral communication. Conversations, discussions and debates on topical (current) issues will be a constant feature. A wide range of audio-visual resources are used routinely.
