After the course, the student will be able to read and understand English and American pieces of literature and analyse them.
Literature provides rich and diverse exposure to language and represents an excellent way to improve your comprehension and internalise grammar and vocabulary, including syntax, morphology and semantics. It enhances your knowledge about society by exposing you to various cultures from different countries and, most importantly, it encourages you to think critically and express your thoughts and opinions. How do the the lessons work? I will send you a short story to read before each lesson, then we will talk about it and analyse it in all its aspects: setting, characters, plot, conflict, theme(s), language etc. These are essentially intensive conversation lessons in which you will build confidence, fluency and language awareness. The stories will be appropriate to your language level and will be chosen based on your interests and learning goals. They will help you improve your reading and speaking skills and you will have fun in the process!
