Intermediate ESL Through Current Events
Students will apply grammar and vocabulary lessons to real-life current events in the news and relevant to everyone’s life. There will be room for students to have a say in what topics they would like to use for lesson themes and discuss in class.
This class is intended for students learning English as a second language who have some of the basics down, such as simple present and simple past, enough vocabulary to hold a basic English conversation, and enough writing skill to be legible.
Students will need to do some writing, but however they prefer to do that is fine. This could mean a notebook and pencil or a word processing software on their computer.
