For students with an Intermediate, Upper-Intermediate or Advanced level. 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.
For students with a Lower to Upper-Intermediate level. 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. Lunch is included in the course fee.
