Inglês do Quotidiano, nível Avançado I e II

This is a general language course for adults who need to speak and write English in a variety of situations at an advanced level. Based on the communicative approach, it integrates the learning of new language skills and places equal emphasis on vocabulary and grammar.

The course uses a guided discovery approach to learning, first allowing students to check what they know, then guiding them to work out the rules through carefully structured examples and concept questions.

All new language features are included in the Language Summaries in the back of the Student’s Book and are regularly recycled and reviewed. Students can also review new language in the Exam Practice section in the Student’s Book, on the Self-study DVD-ROM and in the Workbook.

While the course practises many of the skills necessary for international exams, it does not provide specific exam preparation.

The course is designed to help students work towards the CEFR level C1 skills, which include:

  • understanding extended speech even when it is not clearly structured and relationships are not signalled explicitly;
  • understanding long and complex factual and literary texts, appreciating distinctions of style and understanding specialised articles and technical instructions, even when they are not related to a familiar field;
  • expressing oneself fluently and spontaneously, using language flexibly and effectively for social and professional purposes, formulating ideas and opinions with precision;
  • orally presenting clear, detailed descriptions of complex subjects, integrating sub-themes, developing particular points and rounding off with an appropriate conclusion;
  • when writing, producing clear, well-structured texts, developing points of view at some length, writing about complex subjects in a letter, an essay or a report using an appropriate style.

Topics covered include: first impressions, people and places, lifestyles, work, the media, social issues, advertising, achievements, happiness, world issues and technology.

Grammatical areas reviewed and extended include: present and past tenses, participle and relative clauses, conditionals and modal verbs and inversion.

Vocabulary areas reviewed and extended include: idiomatic phrases, connotation, phrasal verbs, phrasal nouns, collocations, prefixes and suffixes, and colloquial expressions.

The course develops and gives opportunities to practise all four language skills: speaking, writing, reading and listening.
