English is spoken all around you. Can you keep up? The course provides opportunities for you to practise and improve your spoken English. In this course you will develop your discussion skills, build your vocabulary, brush up your knowledge of grammar and gain confidence to be able to speak in a range of different settings. The main focus is fluency and ease of communication.

This course focuses mainly on fluency and ease of communication. Discussions are held
on a wide range of topics. Practical exercises with an emphasis on cooperative work and
task-based activities will help you improve your spoken English skills. Grammar revision and vocabulary work are covered during this course using interactive materials in class and at home.

The course is suitable for people who have reached CEF-level B2- or higher.
You are required to do a placement test developed by Babel. This test consists of two parts: multiple choice and writing. 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. In case you have already completed the placement test we kindly ask for your patience, the Babel Service Desk will review your application within a few days.
