The courses are divided into 5 main levels according to the Common European Reference Chart for language knowledge (CEFR): Basic (A1), Elementary (A2), Intermediate (B1), Upper-intermediate (B2) and Advanced (C1).
At the end of the course you will receive a certificate showing the type of course you have attended, the respective dates and the level you have achieved.
In the following section you will find a brief description of the levels, according to the Common European Reference Chart for language knowledge (CEFR):
- The Basic level is for students who do not have any knowledge of the language.
- The Elementary level is for students who have limited comprehension of the language (A1) and are already capable of forming simple sentences.
- In the Intermediate level the students are introduced to more complex grammar rules. The vocabulary is expanded upon and this allows the comprehension of more abstract topics. At this level the students are encouraged to discuss and debate on several topics of common interest.
- The Upper-intermediate level is for those who already have a good knowledge of the language and good vocabulary. This course focuses on advanced grammar, phonetics and specialized vocabulary. The students have many opportunities to talk about more complex conversation topics.
- In order to follow this Advanced level course, the students must have advanced language proficiency. Different aspects and uses of the language will be explored in order to enhance fluency in conversation. This course can be taken more than once.
