University Course

This course copies the lessons I use for teaching at university. The course containts 28 lessons split over two semesters. Normally it is taught at a rate of one lesson per week with each lesson lasting 90 minutes. The lesson plans are intended for large class sizes so take the form of lectures with some class interaction. The method of teaching is to discuss a topic of interesting culture or knowlege beyond the normal English class topic. In doing so, students are exposed to new vocabulary and gain interest in listening in English because they want to learn the knowlege being discussed. This makes English into a practical source of entertainment and knowlege aquisition rather than mearly the subject of study. When students are interesting in using the language skills, because they have a practical purpose for them, then they are more inclined to develope their language skills independantly.
