B2 Everyday English - Intensive
Practise your competent English intensively twice a week
If you already have a good grasp of English but want to get better at speaking fast, we recommend one of our intensive courses. You can quickly broaden your vocabulary and improve your spoken English significantly. On this intensive course, you will become more fluent when having discussions with friends or work colleagues.
This could be in-depth conversations about more abstract or complex issues such as:
- Crime and justice
- Travel and adventure
- Different cultures and communities
- Emotions and behaviour
- The news
You will also learn language that will help you handle specific more advanced practical situations such as retelling a news story, reflecting on life events and choices, starting a conversation with a stranger, telling and reacting to a story or agreeing and disagreeing politely.
The primary focus is that you become better at speaking English, but you will also be given written assignments for homework. Most lessons will also involve studying some grammar to ensure that your English is as accurate as possible.
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 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.
Navigate Upper-Intermediate, Student's book, 2016 (Oxford University Press), ISBN 9780194566759. We will study selected pages. You should buy the book before the start of the course. You can either buy the book online at www.academicbooks.dk or at their shop:
