Level B1: Can understand the main points of clear standard input on familiar matters regularly encountered in work, school, leisure, etc. Can deal with most situations likely to arise whilst travelling in an area where the language is spoken. Can produce simple connected text on topics which are familiar or of personal interest. Can describe experiences and events, dreams, hopes and ambitions and briefly give reasons and explanations for opinions and plans.
Learning content: Building on the knowledge you have already gained, you will widen your vocabulary and learn how to request information in a hotel, on the phone, at the car rental office, while shopping, visiting the doctor and at the bank, and how to express wishes as well as make complaints. Your ability to express yourself will improve as you learn to combine several sentences in order to express a reason, an intention, a limitation, a time or your opinion.
You will also learn to ask polite questions, hold conversations in the private sphere and at work, and express yourself in all tenses. Finally, the course looks more closely at the past, present and future tenses and their usage, which is closely linked to the speaker's intention.
