I am offering a course in English based on a program of reader response, writing and discussion. The purpose of these lessons is to help advanced students of English (B2 and above) reach a level of language suitable for study abroad, or professional and intellectual activities in English.
During the course I will present the student with a series of articles on culture and current events with discussion questions. These articles can be of my choosing or according to the student’s interests. I will also present and mark writing assignments based on these texts. If the student wishes this course can be based on reading of works of literature instead of non fiction articles.

I work around the specific interests of the student and approach the learning process in an informal way as part of a natural progress toward understanding.
