Engels - English
De sectie Engels heeft een groot en gevarieerd aanbod aan cursussen: algemene cursussen, spreekvaardigheid, zakelijk Engels, literatuur en cursussen die voorbereiden op internationaal erkende certificaten (Cambridge). Onze lessen worden vrijwel allemaal in het Engels gegeven, en zijn daarom geschikt voor zowel Nederlandse als niet-Nederlandse cursisten.
Iedere eerste maandag van de maand is er een Open spreekuur van 17.45-18.45 u, vanaf 1 oktober tot mei 2018, m.u.v. de vakanties; of anders telefonisch via het secretariaat 020-5451424. Een intake is verplicht voor cursisten die willen deelnemen aan een Fluency cursus, een Cambridge cursus of een Business cursus.
This course is for students with an Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate or Advanced level of English. The course will help you to build up your texts properly and to use the correct grammatical structures, style, vocabulary and punctuation. You will have to write e-mails, business letters, short essays, articles and reports. Your written tasks will be discussed during class because you can learn a lot from each other. We will spend two weeks on each writing task to make sure you will have ample practice.
A conversation class for students at an Upper-Intermediate or Cambridge First Certificate level or above who wish to improve their communication skills. The aim is to give students the opportunity to speak and to develop fluency by practising their listening skills, increasing their vocabulary and entering into discussions on various subjects.
This course is for students at an Intermediate level who wish to improve their listening and speaking skills. A variety of topics will be discussed and text will be handed out for further discussion.
This course is for students at a Pre-Intermediate level who wish to improve their listening and speaking skills and build up their vocabulary to deal effectively with everyday situations.
The aim is to point out some of the more common mistakes that people make when they speak or write in English. You will be provided with a clear set of rules covering basic grammar (past, present, future forms) and some of the more complex structures widely in use (passive and if-sentences). After each set of grammar rules presented time will be available to actually practise these in spoken English with the other students.
An intensive course for people with no or hardly any knowledge of English. It is suitable for those who never studied any English at all. After this class students can follow a regular beginners' class. The books are included in the course fee and will be provided by the teacher.
The revision courses are for people who have studied English for about three to four years and who are on a Lower-Intermediate level. The course will revise basic structures and introduce more complex grammatical patterns, which will be practised in speaking activities in order to use English grammar actively.
This is a course for both Dutch and non-Dutch students who have reached an (Upper-)Intermediate level of English, and who are able to handle fairly complex structures. The course is meant to expand students' abilities, to encourage personal expression and enable them to function in more complex situations. Much attention will be paid to using new vocabulary and more complex grammar structures in speaking.
This course is a continuation of the Lower-Intermediate course, but can also be attended by other – Dutch and non-Dutch – students who are on an Intermediate level. You will practise all skills: reading, listening, grammar and especially speaking – aiming to improve your confidence and fluency.
An intensive 10-week course for Dutch and non-Dutch students who can understand and produce English well enough to handle everyday situations and topics. Much attention will be paid to speaking, to encourage personal expression.
