In this class, you’ll learn to express it clearly, without saying it is only good or only bad. You’ll also take a close look at the language we use to talk about using a computer, so that next time a foreigner needs help, you can give it to them with ease. Book Now»

Who?This class is for upper-intermediate members. The media is a central part of our lives. Almost everyday, we all spend time reading a newspaper, watching television, listening to the radio or browsing the internet and, though our media consumption habits might differ, we all rely on the information transmitted by these different mediums in one way or another. This is a class for people who understand the growing importance of media in modern society and would like to speak about across national boundaries.
What? During this class we’ll look at different ways of categorising the media. Is it news or entertainment, for example, and is it old or new, liberal or conservative? We’ll also look at the areas where politics and the media connect, and how different societies view these connections differently. This are areas of hot debate, so we’ll also work on your ability to argue and convince people of you opinion in English during the class. Book Now»
