Intermediate Level

Students at both strong pre-intermediate and true intermediate can benefit from our Intermediate course. All skills are practised through a combination of stimulating, motivating, and effective activities. Students broaden and deepen their understanding of all areas of English and extend their abilities to use it. There is an equal focus on both fluency and accuracy in all skill areas at this level. Grammar in this level includes detailed tense review and introduces stative and event verbs as well as extension on all structures studied at pre-intermediate level.

After studying the Intermediate course, learners should:

• Be able to understand the main ideas of complex text on both concrete and abstract topics, including technical discussions in his/her field of specialisation.
• Be able to interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes regular interaction with native speakers quite possible without strain for either party.
• Be able to produce clear, detailed text on a wide range of subjects and explain a viewpoint on a topical issue giving the advantages and disadvantages of various options.
