About the course

Zakelijk Engels standaardzinnen

In this conversation course, you will practice different types of spoken communication, broaden your vocabulary, and work on your pronunciation. You will receive feedback from both your teacher and your classmates so that you know which areas you need to work on and how you can achieve this.

In the first lesson, the teacher will ask all students to share their learning goals, so that the course programme can be adapted to suit all students’ needs. In every lesson, you will discuss current affairs and listen to (or give) presentations.
