In this block the learner will consolidate the material from the previous Blocks and complete the crossover from B2/pre-C1 to a C1 Proficient User level. The course content remains functional and focused entirely on improving learner independence in all areas, motivating the learner to become conversant on diverse subjects such as the family, work issues and making arrangements. In terms of grammatical structures there will be continued revision and extension of the structures in all tenses with focus on the future tenses to talk about completed or predicted actions in the future. Productive and receptive skills are stretched with more phrasal verbs, idiomatic expressions, the differences between British and American vocabulary, making predictions and talking about future plans, offering, suggesting. As with the other blocks on the course, there is frequent pronunciation practice and the learner has exposure to long and short sounds, word stress, vowel sounds, contractions 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, sentence transformation, error detection and correction and student-led listening practice with the vocabulary items.
