Spoken English Advanced

Level: Intermediate (B1/B2), Advanced (C1/C2)

Is your English a little rusty? In the advanced communication course Spoken English Advanced you continually speak English, develop your vocabulary, and refresh some grammar along the way. Your active participation in conversations on a wide variety of subjects will increase your fluency and confidence in English.

During the lockdown, all our on-site courses will be taught in the virtual classroom. As soon as it is possible, we will switch back to teaching on location. So, you can enrol without any problems for an on-site language course. We offer you a worry-free start to your course with our flexible booking policy.
