The aim of the course is to lay foundations of a basic ability to communicate and exchange information in a simple way, both fluently and accurately. Through utilising all the components and main features of the textbook, students will be given enough personalised communicative tasks and exercises to develop all skills and language areas corresponding with the A1 level. They will be provided with plentiful opportunities to formulate their opinions on relevant and important areas of their life. A strong emphasis will be placed on continuous reviewing and recycling, building students´ confidence and learner autonomy, and encouraging steady progress. Course takers will be guided towards mastery of tools for developing all of their skills to be used in the real world, with a special emphasis on listening and speaking in social situations. They will be led to understand natural spoken English effectively and to transfer the learned language patterns into their active repertoire from the very first encounters with the language.
