The ultimate english (upper intermediate) has a greater focus on speaking about topics in everyday life. The upper intermediate course is designed to increase your selection of vocabulary using the specific topics such as profession, food, film, technology, famous people and travel. In this level there is less grammar topics and topic discussions focused at learning and understanding vocabulary and practicing to speak in context. There are diverse common topics for each conversation based lesson. Prior to the conversation lessons, we will first learn vocabulary, useful expressions used with each of these topics so that we can apply these in the conversation lessons. Please see the basic course breakdown for an overview of topics covered during the 20lessons (each 1 hour). There are 3 review lessons that we use to recap after every 6 lessons approximately. There is also 2 lessons dedicated to receptive skills such as for reading and listening. This is a basic outline and it can be adjusted to meet with your goals and development areas. Lessons may be booked according to your schedule and the availability of time slots, but generally take 5 months to complete (certain weeks we schedule 2 lessons a week).
