The classes will focus on expanding vocabulary, mastering more complex grammatical structures, and acquiring some idiomatic expressions. The content, supporting language structures and vocabulary will be theme-based, with a view to measuring outcomes in a variety of ways, including task-based activities that support effective communication around the theme.
