Course information:

With this course you develop your speaking skills up to A2 level. You will learn how to make appointments, invite someone and respond to an invitation, make a telephone conversation, give and understand instructions, talk about your work schedule, days off and holidays and much more.

In the course we work with one workbook including e-learning. You will also receive a study guide and you can use the grammar videos from Lest Best. This way you can prepare well for the lessons and read at home what was covered in the lessons.

At the end of the course you will do a final test. About a week later, you will receive a certificate by email. The certificate states, among other things, personal advice with which you can continue to work on improving your language level.
