COURSE OUTLINE

What you will need

  1. An English language dictionary.

    In the event that you do not have your own dictionary at home, online dictionary help is available here: http://www.m-w.com/netdict.htm

  2. Someone (a friend or parent perhaps) that is able to read out the words and dictation sentences to you.

How it works

We suggest that the lessons are followed in order because the lessons contain on-going review of words and lessons learned.

Pre-test - write the list of new words for the lesson while someone reads them aloud to you.

Exercises - included for each lesson

Dictation -  Have someone dictate (read out) each sentence for you to write down.

Final test - includes the new word list and the dictation for the lesson.
