The course focuses primarily on communicative language. The skills to be developed are mostly talking and listening, including enhancing vocabulary. Reading and writing are taught as much as needed for a smooth understanding of texts and for writing down new words. Grammar is learned as little as possible and as much as necessary (depending on the group/the child). A lot of interaction, role play, and board games are used in the class. Grammar is also learned in a playful way.
The selection of topics is based on the material “Pille’s and Lauri’s Stories.”
The course is held on the basis of Russian or English language.
To start the course, the prerequisite language level is A1 (300-500 words); the student can write simple sentences of 4-5 words, may make many mistakes.
