Course Description

Are you finding it difficult to start the conversation, or find the right words when communicating in English? Do you know how to start and end conversations in a polite way? Do you want to learn more about American, British, Canadian, Australian, South Korean, Colombian, and Chinese cultures? If so, you’ve come to the right course!

语言最重要的功能就是交流。在交流中我们要知道如何开始一个对方感兴趣的话题,回答别人的提问,自然、流畅地完成一个对话。本课程选取了8个主题,由50多位来自美国、英国、加拿大、澳大利亚、哥伦比亚、中国的老师及各个年龄段的学生,在真实的场景中,用最地道的表达和最纯正的英语,带你谈论日常生活、学习的方方面面。

本课程分为八个单元,每个单元有一个主题,分别是:

1、个人信息的介绍与交换
2、我们的家人和朋友
3、饮食与用餐
4、英语学习的目的和方法
5、假日活动和难忘的经历
6、兴趣爱好
7、情感表达
8、保持健康

每个主题由十余组对话和小组讨论,外籍老师的中西方文化差异介绍,中国老师的重点词汇、句型讲解,听力理解练习和口语测试构成。通过学习和练习,你将可以和讲英语的朋友们自如地交谈、讨论与主题相关的任何问题。本课程的学习方法有很多。英语学习者可以在反复地听和跟读对话的过程中,不断积累语言素材,和你身边的朋友或同课程的学习者进行对话练习;英语教师可以选用本课程中适合的主题,组织学生进行听说训练,组织高效课堂。也许你不能理解每段对话的全部内容,只需听懂大意,随着课程的进展,你听懂的内容会越来越多。让我们一起实现一次英语听说的飞跃吧。

I think the dialog and the explanation are good. I have learned about the communication skill and the skill of how to express my opinions. I have learned about the way to treat other people kindly. I have learned about other countries' cultures out of Vietnamese.

If you are from a country where you don't speak english most of the time, this course is for you as was the case for me. It really helped me build immense self confidence in me to open my mouth and start speaking english with myself and gradually with other people. It also provided various overview of diff. culture and traditions across the globe with small videos which was conducted by mostly native speakers (FOR EX. USA) so it helped really lot in understanding their way of speaking.

underperforming. Low quality of the course, since you do not acquire concise skills in any area of the language, it is a mixture of everything without concise objectives. Instructors do their best but are not specialists in language teaching. Looks like a school project, not a professional course

The aim of the course is to lead people to communicate easily in the English language, so I think that it can be very useful for those who cannot speak and practice every day. The arguments reflect real life aspect that other courses don't consider, and this is an advantage for learners. I would suggest to provide examples related to common situations like taking a taxi, train, bus, hotel booking, car lending, and so on. I have completed the course, and I decided to take the certificate. Great experience, thank you all.
