Languages change your life

Course: Carlingford [A2.3] (English)

In our small groups you will learn the language in a diversified and relaxed atmosphere. The inlingua method ensures that it is not the teacher who speaks, but you. You will find all language levels with us: from beginners’ course at level A0 to native speaker level C2. You can join an ongoing course at any time and you don’t have to wait for a new course of your level to start. Your knowledge is determined in advance by a placement test.

General Language

You will learn to introduce yourself and to give and ask information about yourself (origin, nationality, place of residence and work). You will acquire basic vocabulary from the areas of home, family, traffic, learn to express weights and measures and to ask and answer questions about the time.

After this initial knowledge, you will learn to describe the times of day, days of the week, months and seasons, and the weather. You will be able to talk about your leisure activities and express your needs and answer questions when shopping or eating out.

In the last part of the course, you will learn to communicate when traveling, in a hotel, on the phone, and when visiting a doctor, and also to express your needs by asking or asking for something. You will learn to talk about past actions and events and to form sentences with “if” or “because”. Finally, you will be able to describe your daily routine and talk in a simple way about your abilities, duties, wishes and preferences.

Hybrid course: The teacher teaches in the classroom in presence class with our normal teaching method (focus on speaking). It is also possible to participate virtually in the course by means of a large screen/camera if desired.
