Dear student, you have reached the upper intermediate level or the advanced level, congratulations! It's not easy.
This course will help you to go from the upper intermediate level to the advanced level, or to maintain and improve your advanced level.
Your house is already made, but there are still some bricks missing. Therefore, we are going to concentrate in putting the missing bricks in the correct place. How? By always following this order:
First listen, then repeat, then learn vocabulary and grammar (including reading and writing exercises).
Remember: you can have an advanced knowledge of grammar, but if you can't understand or speak fluently in English your are not really an advanced student.
You will have a week to do all the exercises included in this level. Please, don't tell me you don't have time! If you have only one hour a week, just watch the video below and try to understand it, and if you have more than an hour, try to do all the activities.
1) How good is your listening comprehension?
Watch this video about personal pronouns. Can you understand everything they say?
2) Speaking exercises. You don't have money to pay for an English teacher? Why haven't you found a language exchange yet? You should do it right now! Go to mylanguageexchange .If you haven't found the right person is because you haven't tried hard enough. Come on! Don't just sit there waiting. You can use this page's resources to talk with your new friend on the internet.
3) Grammar exercises. Review all this information given at Unit 1 level 2.
Material y ejercicios para repasar y profundizar sobre pronombres.
4) Improving your listening and your vocabulary. Who said you should learn only British English or American English? You should learn them both, especially if you live in Europe because you're going to hear them both all the time.
Did you know that it's much more difficult to understand British English than American English? So, our goal will be to get used to British English.
Your task will be to listen to this recording at least 10 times and learn all the vocabulary. Pay attention to the pronunciation and try to imitate it.
5) Writing exercise. Try to write an essay. Tip: If you are not sure about a sentence, check it using google. If you find similar sentences in native English speakers' websites, then your sentence is probably right.
