Objectives: In this block the learner will consolidate the material from the previous Blocks and continue the crossover from the Intermediate Level to a more solid Advanced Level, as well as consolidating the necessary structures to pass satisfactorily the ECCE (The Examination for the Certificate of Competency in English). The course content remains functional and focused entirely on improving learner independence in all areas, especially in real-life situations such as work and leisure, house and home, films and habitual actions etc. In terms of grammatical structures there will be continued revision and extension of the structures in all tenses with emphasis on parts of the language such as more phrasal verbs, idiomatic expressions and the differences between British and American vocabulary. As with the other blocks on the course, there is frequent pronunciation practice and the learner has exposure to long and short sounds, correct regular past tense endings, vowel sounds, elision as well as general vocabulary and sentence level practice. At this point the learner can maintain a conversation with a native speaker on a wider range of subject areas. The use of a variety of exercises encompasses different learner styles as well as guaranteeing thorough coverage of the topics covered. The block is comprised of a series of interactive exercises such as word-picture association, listening comprehension with short, realistic dialogs and student-led listening practice with the vocabulary items.
