Summary

Interested in learning more about the world? Want to improve your understanding of, and ability to talk about politics in English? Then this is the course for you! This course is designed to improve students' English language and teach students more about global politics and economics. Each week, we will discuss an important political issue in a different part of the world (Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia, Africa) using news articles, videos and podcasts. 

Format

Every week, I will assign some short materials (podcasts, videos, news articles) that should only take you about 30 minutes to review. We will then have a semi-structured discussion about the materials in our class. I will prepare and ask some questions to help stimulate conversation, but will also leave the conversation open for students to take control of. 

What you can learn from this class

You will learn about politics, economics and society in different countries around the world, and improve your intermediate to advanced English vocabulary.

My experience for the class

I have a PhD in Urban Studies from the University of Glasgow. My research and writing is about how urban planning and development trends move from country to country, working in Europe, South America, North America and Asia. I have also worked as a policy researcher for the Scottish Parliament, and have taught English for over 4 years.
