English B2 > B2/C1 intensive - in person

This course is intended for participants who are able to follow some extended lectures and familiar discussions and who can follow most news and current affairs programs (CEFR level B2 reading, listening and conversation).

During the English General Language Skills courses of the University of Groningen Language Centre, attention will be on speaking, writing, reading and listening with some focuses on vocabulary, grammar, and punctuation.

Intensive course
This is an intensive two-week course, during which you have lessons four days a week. Each lesson lasts two hours and fifteen minutes. You will also spend about 15 hours a week on independent study.

Office Hour
If you want to register and you have not previously taken an English course at the Language Centre, we advise you to visit the office hour to discuss with a teacher which course would suit you best, but this is not mandatory. Please note that you can already register for the course you are interested in. The office hour is held via Blackboard Collaborate.

You can also determine your starting level of a language training online and in your own time with the  placement test. This test gives a global indication of your level for your own reference, for a more personal advice visit our office hour.

Course Material   
The course material is not included in the course fee and is not available at the Language Centre.
