By the end of the course, you will become aware of your language needs through analysis, practical tips, critical reading, peer review and discussion.

You will know exactly what your strengths and weaknesses are and how to overcome these. Your own texts will be used as a basis for the writing assignments and you will receive feedback on your work from both the language trainer and the other participants.

A teacher will assess your language skills. On the basis of your test result you will get an advice about which course is suitable for you. Please note that it can take up to 5 working days until your language level is assessed.
