In this block the learner will consolidate the material from the previous Blocks and begin the the transition from an Intermediate Level to an Advanced Level, thus beginning the preparation to take the ECCE (The Examination for the Certificate of Competency in English). The course content remains functional and focused entirely on improving learner's independence in all areas, especially in real-life situations such as work and leisure, house and home, films and habitual actions etc. In this block the learner will continue to notice an increased confidence when faced with basic functions and will be able to read an English or American newspaper with little difficulty, follow conversations in English with native speakers and participate in more complex exchanges. In terms of grammatical structures there will be continued revision and extension of the structures covered with emphasis on parts of the language such as phrasal verbs, idiomatic expressions and the differences between British and American vocabulary. As with the other blocks on the course, there is frequent pronunciation practice and the learner has exposure to long and short sounds, correct regular past tense endings, minimal pairs, elision as well as general vocabulary and sentence level practice. The use of a variety of exercises encompasses different learner styles as well as guaranteeing thorough coverage of the topics covered. The block is comprised of a series of interactive exercises such as word-picture association, listening comprehension with short, realistic dialogues and student-led listening practice with the vocabulary items.
