English B2/C1 > C1 - online

This course is intended for participants who are able to follow most extended lectures and familiar discussions and who can understand literary prose and many TV programs and films without too much effort (CEFR level B2 Conversation; CEFR level C1 reading and listening).

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.

Online course
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 about everything you can expect from an online language course.

Get a taste during the free Webinar Week!
On 1 February, you can attend an English webinar during which you can find out about the courses and the virtual classroom, ask questions and get a taste of what to expect.

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.

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

Using a Rosetta Stone account besides a language course
