Course Description

This course will stress the different aspects of communication rather than elaborate the aspects of grammar (although, unfortunately, grammar is indispensable in language learning).  The idea is to be able to speak some of the languages at the end of the course, including:

  • Introducing one's self / introduce others
  • Presenting one's tastes and preferences
  • Describing one's self/others
  • Make plans for the weekend
  • Invite people
  • Tell the time and schedule for the day
  • Write simple messages, informal letters
  • Communicate over the phone
  • Prepare a menu
  • Order a meal
  • Reserve a room in the hotel (over the phone and through a formal letter)
  • Describe one's house, write a simple advertisement for a house
