Annotation -
The aim of the course is to develop the key language skills of students, starting with the C1 level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages towards the C1+ level. It is the fifth term of a continuous series of courses. The learner works systematically with a coursebook and expands his/her practical skills in the fields of spoken performance, reading comprehension, listening and writing, all focused on accuracy and language complexity. The classroom material is to be analysed thoroughly; students are encouraged to form their attitudes and summarize their ideas. The vocabulary is enhanced systematically, including collocations, idioms and abstract terms. Grammar is presented to students as a system, including some of its less frequent features which occur in the texts. To support their knowledge, the students can be asked to study from other materials recommended by the lecturer.
