The internet is full of news stories in English, but maybe you want a little help understanding them. Maybe you just want to practice talking in English with topics you can't find in a English text book.
This class uses a mix of reading, speaking and listening exercises centered around topics you care about in the news today.
How does this class work?
- Reading - You choose a short article or topic that interests you before class. That means, you choose your own homework!
- Speaking - We use the vocabulary in the article you chose to talk about the topic. We practice any grammar points from the article that you are unsure about.
- (Optional) Listening Practice - You also listen to a short article about the same topic to work on listening comprehension. Then we can talk about our topic in more detail.
