In the area of linguistic production, participants learn to communicate spontaneously and fluently and to express themselves clearly and in detail on a wide range of topics. This includes explaining a point of view on a current issue and identifying the advantages and disadvantages of different options. Grammar skills are also developed throughout the course.
