A variety of activities are involved, all of which aim to practise passive and active spoken language skills:
• Video and sound recordings, plus invited speakers
• Discussion, summaries, presentations, role play etc.
• Vocabulary flexibility, use of metaphors, collocations etc.
• Instruction in specific points of English usage
The materials cover a variety of topics of general interest without any particular focus on one subject area.
All the workshops take place at a central location in Edinburgh. Although the city is best known for its International Festival and Fringe Festival in August, there are ample opportunities for visits to cultural events all the year round. The cost is EUR 950.
Please note that we ceased to differentiate between "B" and "C" workshops, having had very positive experience with "mixed" groups in previous years>
If you are currently an "English C" and wish to discuss your needs with us, do not hesitate to send us an email.
