CANG 9111 et CANG 9211 _ B2 _ Speaking & Listening

Do you understand English when you read it, but not when you hear it? Do you have trouble saying exactly what you mean when you speak in English? Then this class is for you!

Content & methodology

The exercises are inspired by C1 Advanced exam questions, and are designed to take you from a B2 speaking level to a C1 speaking level.

You will be in groups of maximum 8 students.

Each week there will be:

  • solo, pair, and group speaking exercises
  • a different pronunciation point to practice
  • idiomatic expressions for colloquial and professional English
  • listening exercises in class and for homework

You will be exposed to a range of different English accents from all around the world, and you will be taught different listening techniques.
