At this course you will not learn much grammar rules or theories of English language. Instead, this course focuses
more on the practical aspects, like communication usage of the language especially during the group activities,
debates and presentations. Many students take this class, as it offers them the chance to gain confidence and
verbally practice their English language skills. We strive to provide a native English speaker as a teacher of this course.
