Feedback from our student Marianne:
”The course aims at developing all language skills (listening, speaking, reading and writing), but the focus is definitely on the oral part of the language, which I deeply value. The class is constructed as a series of debates and discussions where everyone has the chance to both take part in dialogues and live interaction and to speak for longer periods of time and develop an argument in depth”
