This course aims at improving vocabulary, listening comprehension, speaking skills and language accuracy through the analysis and discussion of art works, be they literary works, films, photographs, musical scores or paintings.
Art introduces us into a world of experience, it is universal and affects us. It is a means of telling us something about our current reality.
Each lesson will focus on a current topic, ranging from everyday issues to business, and such topic will be developed through readings, videos and visual aids in general, thus providing different perspectives and a new approach.
Last year the course focussed on such themes as ambition, empathy, greed, motivation, resilience and literary texts were analysed in class as well as paintings, film clips and photographs by contemporary artists.
Next year the course will explore further aspects of art and creativity and will be implemented with elements of music, sculpture, fashion and cinema techniques.
Key aspects of the sessions will be practicing speaking and listening skills, as well as acquiring new vocabulary.
