English C1 > C1 and above - online

This course is intended for participants who understand extended speech even when not clearly structured and can understand unrelated, specialized articles. You can express yourself spontaneously without much obvious searching for expressions (CEFR level C1 speaking, writing, 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.
