Learning Objectives:

Students taking the level 5 course should either have completed a GCSE examination in the subject, or have an equivalent knowledge of the Language. The aim of level 5 is to develop strong language skills, cultural awareness and grammatical ability, giving the student confidence in their ability and the basic competences needed to communicate in a working environment.

Potential Topics:

Media: television/cinema/ communication technology (benefits/dangers of mobiles); The future tense and future plans; Travel plans; Opinions and view points; Current affairs; ‘In the workplace’ – Career/employment; Letter/email writing.

Suggested Grammar Coverage:

Students should be provided with a solid grammatical base which will allow them to converse more easily at this level by developing their own sentences and phrases.

Learning Outcomes:

Students will be able to hold discussions and discuss opinions. Students will have developed a broad vocabulary in the topic areas outlined above and a comprehensive knowledge of all of the main grammatical themes. Students will understand frequently used words and phrases associated with everyday living, as well as working environments.



Please note: In order to receive a certificate of completion, you must attend a minimum of 7 out of 10 classes.
