The importance of self-study: You will be spending 20 weeks in the classroom but 32 weeks out of the classroom so self-study is of the utmost importance. Here are some things you can do to study alone: • study all the grammar points in the book not covered in class • Use such sites as BBC Learning English to improve your language skills • Access newspapers on line to practise reading newspaper articles (especially the second year students) such as the Guardian, the Times, the Independent, the Economist and so on. • Access EFL websites such as Dave’s ESL Café, English-zone and Learn English to practise a variety of aspects • Use the self-access material at the faculty and the CLA
