English B2 > B2/C1

This course is intended for participants who are able to communicate the basics in English. You understand about 60% - 70% of the content of TV programmes. (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.

This course will be taught as an online interactive group course via Blackboard Collaborate; our online classroom for the coming period! One lesson lasts 90 minutes. Per lesson you should count on 2-3 hours of self-study. Read here everything you can expect from an online language course.

To be able to register, it is required that you have your language level evaluated through our English office hours or have taken a previous Language Centre English course.

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

  • New Language Leader - Intermediate (coursebook + MyEnglishLab access)
    Uitgeverij: Pearson
    ISBN: 9781447961482

The book, New Language Leader, and its online counterpart My English Lab, are both required. Together, they aid students in developing their English skills in speaking, writing, reading, and listening, as well as vocabulary and grammar. The subscription to the online lab is valid for almost two years, so students can continue to improve their English skills even after the General English Skills course is completed.

You will also be using online course material in Nestor, the blackboard learning environment of the University of Groningen, as well as Google Drive and Google Docs, for which you will need a student RUG mail account or a Gmail account.

Using a Rosetta Stone account besides a language course
It is possible to use a Rosetta Stone account for online independent study besides one of our language courses, with the advantage that the account can be used after the course to keep working on your language skills. Please note that a Rosetta Stone account is not compulsory for our language courses and will not be used by the teacher.
