Engelsk 0-B

I faget engelsk på B-niveau lærer du at forstå, tale og skrive et nogenlunde flydende og hovedsageligt korrekt engelsk. Du vil i den sammenhæng lære om det engelske sprogs grammatik, stavemåde og tegnsætning. Der vil være fokus på træning i at bruge opslagsværker, analysere forskellige teksttyper samt film og mediestof og får kendskab til tekstanalytiske begreber. Du vil herunder stifte bekendtskab med et bredt udvalg af nyere litterære tekster, ikke-litterære tekster og mediestof. Du vil desuden få viden om historiske, kulturelle og samfundsmæssige forhold i Storbritannien, USA og andre engelsksprogede lande.

Undervisningen består af modul 0-8, hvor 0 er et kort introduktionsmodul. To af modulerne er skriftlige eksamensopgaver, resten er delt op i temaer. I hvert modul er der et til to  grammatikemner samt tilhørende øvelser. Disse skal ikke afleveres, men de skal laves, da man ellers ikke kan forvente at nå det rette niveau til eksamen.
