English Speaking & Pronunciation 2 (online course)

Would you like to raise your English fluency to the next level? In the Speaking & Pronunciation 2 course you will work on your speaking and listening skills. You will focus on your own stumbling blocks and will practice with the sounds that are challenging for you, but also with intonation and stress.

The course will be provided entirely online using the Virtual Classroom in Brightspace.

Target group

The English Speaking & Pronunciation 2 course is aimed at Bachelor’s or Master’s students who want to further develop their English fluency. This course is a continuation of the Speaking & Pronunciation 1 course, but can also be taken as a separate course.

Course level

C1 and higher (CEFR)

Course content

This course is based on your individual learning objectives. You will start with the work plan that you created during the Speaking & Pronunciation 1 course. You will extensively practice your speaking and listening skills, and there is ample opportunity for feedback. If you did not take Speaking & Pronunciation 1, then the lecturer will help you to create a work plan after an intake interview.
