One of the competence aims of this course is to do an in-depth study of a chosen topic and make a presentation for the class. In our plan we have suggested making this a project on conflicts just to exemplify how such a project could be organized.

The national curriculum also requires the students to interpret at least one novel and one film. You will find suggestions for books and films listed as Recommended Reading and Recommended Films.

By working with the tasks and activities linked to to the different topics, the students will improve their reading, writing, listening, speaking and digital skills in English.
