Grundskola 7 Engelska
Why do so many people around the world speak English? This course takes a look at the many areas of the world where the English language plays a big part, and how it has come to do so. We will also study the process of language creation, from a social-biological as well as a linguistic point of view.

CONTENT

We will learn about the English language influences in the world.

We will read and listen to text and talk from a variety of Englishes.

We will study the genre of travel writing, and you will create your own travel blogs and vlogs, learning to use online tools for this.

We will also read choice books alongside this content.

ASSESSMENT

Throughout the course, there will be a number of assignments, tasks and quizzes which serve as learning material in preparation for the final assessment (an individual presentation, a group discussion and a written task), but which can also serve as proof of skills and knowledge. The more active you are in class, the greater your chance is of learning and showing that learning. Only tasks submitted on time will be given feedback.
