English speaking and writing B2/C1

English speaking and writing B2/C1

Target participants: This course is intended for students on all academic levels and from all faculties who want to improve their speaking and writing for academic, professional and everyday settings.

Course content: The course builds on the foundations attained in school, to enhance your accuracy, fluency and confidence in spoken and written English. Examples of spoken and written texts from university, work and everyday life on a variety of topics allow you to develop your vocabulary across the disciplines. Guided autonomous learning refreshes and expands your grammar on the advanced level. In class you train oral interaction and presentation skills; for homework you write short texts that elaborate on these oral activities. This allows you to familiarize yourself with a range of academic, professional and everyday topics and to manage the differences between different genres and registers appropriate to the different settings. This course can be taken as a background refresher for the Cambridge C1 exam and as a precursor to the course English speaking and writing on the C1+ level offered in the spring semester.
