Course objectives
The course English 2 follows the course English 1 and its aim is to develop knowledge of the grammatical and lexical system of the English language. Emphasis is placed on the grammatical-lexical side of the language and the harmonious development of all four language skills (listening, reading, writing, speaking) so that students communicate clearly and grammatically correct in common situations, both orally and in writing. Students will be acquainted with the system of language in its common use with the application of interesting texts for listening and reading, as well as with ways of creating and enriching vocabulary, all with the aim of conscious and purposeful use of language in communication both in terms of fluency and accuracy. The topics discussed reflect the areas of the lessons 3 and 4 of compulsory literature and will be further expanded with additional materials reflecting the specific needs of students in order to deepen the knowledge of the field studied.
