Amsterdam city center. Easily accessible by public transport.

Approach

A new chapter/topic is covered each day.
Home study of approx. 15 hours per course is essential in order to reach the actual level at the end of the course.

The course consists of three parts - 1. input before the lesson, 2. activation at the lesson and 3. consolidation after the lesson.

You will be instructed which listening and reading exercises should be done before each lesson. That way, you will get used to the new words at home at your own pace and the actual lesson time can be fully used to communicate.

At the lesson, you will work in pairs or groups with other students to practise speaking and understanding through a series of relevant, engaging and interactive exercises - centred around the topic of the day. The remaining lesson time will be used to explain and practice the functional grammar that is relevant for the topic.

After the lesson, you will write 1 short written assignment per day. You will receive personalised written feedback to your written assignment from the teacher.
