Course Objective


The News Discussion Course is designed for Intermediate 2 to Advanced students to have deep discussions regarding topics of recent events. Our topics may include world news, economic news, political news, lifestyle news, and cultural news.

Students will discuss the news in detail with the teacher to go deeper into the topics. Our News Discussion Course aims to help students that can have intermediate conversations but are unable to articulate their thoughts most precisely. The course will facilitate students to breakthrough this barrier and achieve fluency levels closer to that of native speakers.

There will be three topics covered during the course with each topic being covered in two lessons. For each topic, the first lesson will be spent on understanding the topic, practicing the vocabulary and having discussions. For the second lesson, students must prepare to elaborate and discuss in topic in further detail.
