This free FutureLearn course is for non-native English speakers who have studied English to around intermediate level (approximately B1 on the CEFR).
Through short videos, you will learn about different popular culture topics as well as ways of life in the UK, including English as a global language, the countryside, music, and literature. Filmed in Great Britain, these videos will help you to develop your listening skills as you watch authentic examples of people speaking English. You will also examine some of the language used in the videos and analyse its use and learn how to use it again in practice.
While the course has a set start date, you can join anytime thereafter and work through it at your own pace.
