Level and demands

To benefit from the course, participants are expected to be near or at A Level/B2 Level of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). They can understand TV news and programmes in standard language, and interact with a degree of fluency and spontaneity that makes interaction with other speakers without strain for either party.

Should you find, or should your tutor suggest, that you are not at the right course level, and you wish to be moved up or down a level, this will only be possible if a place is available in the level you wish to move to. You are advised to speak to the Day and Weekend Administrator after the first session on Saturday morning. You will find them in Lecture Room 5 where tea and coffee will be served during the breaks.
