Information for First Year Students 2013-2014
Chris Young – Primo Anno, group A6 and group A7
The course aims to improve students’ listening, speaking, reading and writing skills to B1 level and beyond (particularly reading to B1+). The course is based on New English File Intermediate Digital (3rd edition, published 2013), authors – C. Oxenden and C. Latham- Koenig, English Grammar in Use by R. Murphy and Extra 1 (dispensa). Students should aim to attend at least 75% of the lessons and be prepared to do at least 2 hours self-study for every hour in class. Students must choose a book (fiction or non-fiction, but not simplified) in standard, modern English (to be approved by their teacher). They will read this book during the year, taking notes on the vocabulary. At the oral exam they will be asked to talk briefly about themselves and then about the book they have read in terms of content and vocabulary (explaining or translating words or expressions selected by the teacher as within the target vocabulary range for the level).
Details regarding the admission to and organization of exams will be published soon.
