In this course, we will look at what is happening in the world and discuss various important events in depth. We will start with an overview of the latest news and then take one or two topics every week to analyse and evaluate more closely. Many global events raise wider issues and philosophical questions which can then be brought into the discussion.
We will work using material taken from news broadcasts as well as relevant articles. This will offer the opportunity to practise both listening and reading comprehension, expand one’s vocabulary, become familiar with journalistic terminology and style, and refresh grammar points as they arise.
