Would you like to improve your English and learn about the Bible at the same time?
This course is designed for people who have a basic understanding of English and who would like to improve their English skills. The course focuses on how English is used in everyday situations such as talking with people at the shops, or speaking with colleagues at work.
A unique feature of this course is that we use the Bible to practice reading and pronunciation skills. As you improve your English, you will also learn about the Bible and why it is an important book to many people in Australia and elsewhere. You will discover what the Bible says about the past, present and even the future!
The course runs on Tuesday evenings 7:30pm-9:00pm, after which we stop to have a chat over tea / coffee and a snack. We normally finish up around 9:30pm.
Each week we begin with a session where we study how English is commonly used in Australia, covering Australian expressions and idioms. We will view short videos and examine current news articles together. We will also discuss aspects of Australian culture and life.
This is followed by a reading and discussion session where we break into small groups to learn about the Bible. We will trace the story of the Bible together and discover key messages from the Bible.
