This is a VOCABULARY course which aims to increase OUTPUT IN SPEAKING. The Flow of the Class: The 1st 5 minutes: Warm-Up 15 minutes for vocabulary learning & exercises. 15 minutes for application and output: The student will be asked to use the collocations by telling a related story or discussing a relevant topic.
