Our “RP Discussion” course specifically focuses on improving language learners’ oral skills. This course encourages students to develop and share their ideas in a friendly environment. During this course, students learn to express their thoughts freely and challenge ideas they disagree with. The “RP Discussion” course includes four levels (Lower-intermediate, Intermediate, Advanced, and Proficiency). Each level is divided into three terms. The nature of the course requires that the materials be prepared by the teacher of the class. Therefore, no official textbooks will be introduced. At the beginning of each term, students will be given a ten-lesson handout for the course. The handouts include texts, pictures, audios, and videos. The teacher is free to add or modify the handouts for each session.
