This course is a follow-up on level 3.
In this course we will also be making use of television broadcasts on video as reading materials, and we will discuss newspaper articles and articles in our respective fields of expertise. We will cover all areas of grammar and consolidate this knowledge through exercises from the workbook. You will need approximately two hours a week to prepare for the course. This homework forms the basis for the conversation and discussion in the group. The final goal is for you to be able to easily converse on a wide range of topics, to independently read newspaper articles and texts, to understand the key points of current affairs, to write a coherent text or letter, and to hold a presentation in which you can motivate your opinions and plans without constantly having to search for words.
