Suitable for those who have completed all levels up to 503 or who have completed 470 hours of recent face to face tuition. You should be able to understand the main content of complex texts and participate in discussions on specialised subjects.

Based on two units from the prescribed text focusing on subject areas: ‘Gender specific jobs and lifestyles’ and ‘trade fairs and product presentation’.

In Unit 3 students will learn to speak about gender topics such as women in male-dominated professions and boys without male role models in their life. Students will study interviews and articles from experts in order to learn how to express their own opinions.

In Unit 4 students will explore how the observation of the natural world inspires design and function within the world of technology by looking at the links between them. We will study texts about the history and future of cars and also discuss why people are so fascinated by cars.
