What’s the content of English B2.1?

This is an English for Academic Purposes course. The main aim of this course is to equip participants with skills so that they can function quite confidently when using English in different academic and also non-academic situations. It will cover the following skills:

This course also focuses on the use and improvement of grammatical structures, so that you are able to communicate in various common and everyday situations. This course can be described as a blended learning course. The final level of the course is B2.1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
