Course Description

This course is designed for complete beginners or students with little knowledge of the language. 

The course covers a variety of everyday situations such as:

·       Introducing yourself and others

·       Telling times

Class work emphasises on listening, speaking and practice of sentence structure; self study consists of reviewing work done in class and practising language skills, as advised by the tutor.
