    Re: "Termic Courses"?

    I don't think 'termic' is a valid word. I've never heard it used. I looked it up in (the usually complete) Online Mirriam Webster dictionary - and 'termic' isn't there, either.

    I then reviewed the Headway series ... I think I would call these 'graduated' courses or classes.

    As you complete each 'class' or 'term' - you graduate to the next level/class/term.


    Does this help?

    Re: "Termic Courses"?

    There is an adjective based on 'term' - 'termly' (as in 'There will be a termly record kept of students' attendance). But this usage would not be appropriate here.

    There must be an equivalent for such courses which are held term by term.

    Hi there,
    I believe so, too. Hope we can get some practical terms here.


    Cheers!

    There doesn't appear to be a generally accepted term.

    Thanks. But such book series are mostly covered in language institutes, and I wonder how can we refer to such courses, or what seems to appear in adverts for such institutes?

    Mehrgan,


    (1) Teacher Farhadhamed's post gave me an idea. It may be the wrong idea, but here it is respectfully presented to you.

    (2) Here in the United States, high schools and universities

    traditionally (although it is changing fast) have two terms each

    year (about 5 months each). Those terms are called semesters.

    It is quite common to hear:

    Tom: Do you like your new class in Flowers of Alaska?

    Sue: I hate it.

    Tom: But you need it for credit toward your degree.

    Sue: Yeah. And, besides, it's only a one-semester course.

    Tom: You're lucky. My counselor told me that I have to take

    a class called The Trees of Northern California.

    Sue: That doesn't seem too horrible.

    Tom: It's a three-semester course!!!


    ***** NOT A TEACHER *****
