Language and Culture
Upper intermediate-Advanced (4 semester college +) (3 weeks)
What a better source of language to inspire and boost your speaking level‚Ä?than current events!?¬† These summer courses will use the news paper, the internet, classic literature of today and yesterday and movies to inspire your language learning.¬† Rollicking conversations, jokes and debates led by our passionate teachers characterized these summer Language & Culture classes. The advanced grammar you study is applied in increasingly challenging strategies and techniques that encourage you to begin to “think” in the language you are learning. After participating in these activities, students find language flows from their brain to their tongues more automatically. It takes, surprisingly, little time to dredge up old language experiences. The native speaking teacher acts as a facilitator who, corrects, teaches mini-lessons and provides material for interesting and thought-provoking conversations. The conversations will demand advanced constructions from students. If you are a rusty upper-intermediate to advanced speaker or if you want to take your language skills to the next level, this is the course for you!
