2. Well done for completing week 2! We have learnt to:

  • Exchange contact details: number and email;
  • Spell one’s name and email;
  • Say how some family members are related to each other;
  • Introduce a family member with ‘this is my…’;
  • Talk about possessions with ‘this is my…’, ‘is this..?’ and ‘whose is this…?’;
  • Say where one lives: country, city and street;
  • Speak about one’s short profile with basic information.


3. We finish here our taster. It was great to have you with us! Weeks 3 to 10 are part of the microcredential course. If you decide to join us, some of the topics you can expect are: saying one’s age, saying the time, inviting/requesting, food, travelling, past experiences etc. The class group will have 1-hour weekly online seminars with their teacher. These seminars will focus on speaking. At the end, there will be an exam that enables learners to be awarded 15 credits. The 10-week course is set to start in October 2021 or January 2022, here on FutureLearn.
