Conversation courses

Learning a language is all about learning to interact in conversation. To practise and improve your conversation skills, we offer separate conversation courses at intermediate and advanced level. In the conversation course you and your fellow students’ input will be leading in the dialogue. Classes are structured to meet your needs. For example, you may want to improve your skills on a specific topic and lexical issues or grammar rules you want to practise more.

Your starting level will be defined in CEFR-terms. After the intake call, you can register straight away for the advised course . The intake is included in the course fee.

Certificate

At the end of the course, you will receive an attendance certificate with your starting and attainment level, on condition that you have attended at least 75% of the lessons. Attendance certificates are included in the course fee. This is not an official diploma, only government institutions can award those.
