Teaching and Learning Methods

You will be actively learning through a variety of interactive classroom activities, in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. You will work in pairs/small groups to practise speaking and listening, with worksheets and activities to develop your reading and writing. Learning will be enriched through the use of audio-visual aids, realia (authentic material), online interactive resources, and role play. Resources used within each lesson are available for learners on our online learning platform, Google Classroom. The skills you are learning should be practised outside college in order to develop and progress.


Assessment is continuous and will take place throughout the session. The tutor will give you feedback on your speaking in class. There is no formal qualification attached to this course but you can receive a Certificate of Completion from the college on request.

Next Steps and Progression

Once you have completed the course, you may choose to enrol on another Languages or a Humanities and Culture course, or another subject. Advice and guidance is available from the Curriculum Manager on request
