  • Who is it for?

    The course is for people who have acquired elementary grammar and are able to take part in basic conversations by completing a beginners’ course or having spent time in a country where the language is spoken. The emphasis is on extending vocabulary and developing grammatical competence. On completion of the course, you will be able to progress to a continuation course to give you the opportunity to develop your skills further.
