Target group:
The B1 intensive English language level course is for students who want to expand on their previous English language knowledge at an intermediate level. The course is suitable for students who have completed an A2 course (pre-intermediate) or have approximately 300-400 classroom hours of English language lessons. The course is intensive and takes place for four hour per day for three weeks but if you complete the class room hours and engage with language outside of class you can achieve a B1 level.

The focus of this course is on intermediate English language skills. Attention is paid to the four primary language skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. The course is rooted in an English for academic purposes pedagogy but is applicable to everyday life.

Regular and active participation is required for successful completion of the course. This includes the completion of homework in order to continue practicing and consolidating what has been learned in the classroom. Attendance is compulsory.

Regular and active participation in the class. Completion of homework assignments. Exam on the last day of class.
