English conversation Upper Intermediate B1+
English conversation for Upper Intermediate students is a lively course with an emphasis on fluency, vocabulary and reading comprehension. We discuss various topics from current events and news items. Only English is spoken in the class.
You will take a very active part in discussion and be able to give your opinion on a range of subjects. The Upper Intermediate course focuses on fluency and you will be expected to present your own discussion subjects to the class. The lessons are given in a relaxed informal atmosphere.
The majority of students in the English conversation courses are Dutch. Due to the international character of Brainport Eindhoven the English Intermediate conversation course is also suitable for expats or foreign students whose second language is English. Knowledge: New students are advised to test their level.
Students should have a higher education level /or Bachelor degree level/ CEFR B1+ / B2. English conversation Upper Intermediate is the level for students who attended the conversation course B1+ at the Volksuniversiteit Eindhoven last season. Please contact the teacher to confirm your level. Enrolment will only be only possible after emailing the teacher in English and /or completing the DIALANG TEST http://dialangweb.lancaster.ac.uk/
