Intermediate General English (CEFR Level B1)

  Course Description:

Layer-27
 
 
 
 

Our Intermediate level courses are for people with a reasonably good level of English who want to make progress in the language.  Typical learners at this level are able to use the language independently with familiar topics, and are more comfortable understanding and expressing opinions.  However, they may have trouble with more abstract uses of the language. 

The classes from 09:00 - 11:30 and 14:00 - 16:30 focus on all aspects of the language, including grammar, vocabulary, pronunciation, speaking, listening, reading and writing.

The lessons from 11:45 - 12:30 and 13:00 - 13:45 build on the language from these classes, with a focus on communication and practical skills.

All our lessons give students the opportunity to learn and use English in realistic situations, and our teachers give regular homework to help you practice.

  Course Content:

The classes use a range of methodologies and activities to help students learn and use the language.  The classes use a set coursebook, and these are supplemented with authentic materials, video and interactive technology.

There are regular progress tests and tutorials, which helps the teachers identify students’ strengths and weakness, and allows the students to check their progress in English.
