B1+ Intensive - ONLINE
Practise everyday English online twice a week
If you would like to improve your English fast and from the comfort of your own home or office, we recommend this intensive online course. You can quickly broaden your vocabulary and improve your spoken English significantly. On this course, you will become more fluent when speaking to friends and work colleagues.
This could be when having more in-depth conversations about:
- Past experiences
- What makes us happy
- Working conditions
You will also learn language that will help you handle practical everyday situations such as asking for and giving opinions, comparing and recommending, giving a talk, agreeing and disagreeing or making enquiries.
The primary focus is that you become better at speaking English, but you will also be given some short written assignments for homework. Most lessons will also involve studying some grammar to give you a framework on which to build the language and to minimise mistakes.
The course focuses on all the four language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing as well as grammar, pronunciation and vocabulary.
As we will be meeting online twice a week and there will also be homework, you will be practising your English nearly every day, which means you will get into a totally different rhythm than if you had only been going to English classes once per week. On the course, you will typically meet students who need to improve their English because they have recently got a new job, or students who need to improve their English quickly so they can perform well in their current job.
Preparation time: approx. 1-2 hours.
