About course

The afternoon online course for very advanced C1+ students will reliably guide you on your way to language proficiency. If textbooks and traditional methods no longer provide you with challenges, you’ve come to the right place. The stimulating and innovative approach of our tutors will take you one step closer to English language proficiency in this advanced course.

In the course, we will cover the more challenging areas of the language in depth. Master the principles of writing texts, incorporating established vocabulary and phrases into your work. Develop all aspects of language that contribute to smooth communication, fluency, self-confidence, and natural-sounding expression. Using authentic materials, our course focuses on vocabulary development in the broadest sense. Together we will also investigate less popular areas of English grammar as it is important to explore how grammar works and changes meaning in real situations. At the end of each class we discuss chapters of an English novel that will be read as homework during the course.

Who is the course for

The course is tailored for advanced students at C1+ level who already have a good command of English communication, but still feel the desire and need to fine-tune it. For those who no longer want to study textbooks but are open to innovative and inspiring methods of language learning.
