Would you like to improve your English language skills but don’t you have time to do this during the academic year? Don’t hesitate: register for our online summer English course via Zoom! During this more intensive course, you can complete one target level in two weeks instead of 10 weeks.

This course consists of nine daily sessions of approx. 3,5 hours each. The final exam takes place on Tuesday 24 August. One course level will have been covered by the end of this course, B2.2 or C1.1. 

What will you learn?

All courses are a so called English for Academic Purposes course. The main aim 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:

  • listening;
  • speaking;
  • reading & comprehension;
  • writing;
  • critical thinking;
  • grammar;
  • vocabulary

Depending on the level B2.2 or C1.1, the course focuses on the use and improvement of grammatical structures and on the expansion of your vocabulary on a professional level, so that are able to communicate in various situations. This course can be described as a blended learning course. The final level of the course is B2.2 or C1.1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR).
