Description:
  Standardní kurs angličtiny pro středně pokročilé studenty zaměřený na obecnou i technickou angličtinu. Kurs je založen na integrovaném přístupu. Po gramatické části, která obsahuje různé komunikativní typy úkolů osvětlujících novou gramatiku, každá lekce zahrnuje úkoly pro četbu, poslech, psaní a mluvení. Během kursu dochází k velkému nárustu slovní zásoby. Cílem práce s technickými texty je výuka jazyka, nikoliv výuka odborného obsahu textu.
