English One
Winter Term 2008-9
Fridays, 10−12 am; room 049, Computer Science building, Takustr. 9.


"English One" is a textbook-based language class for people who have had at least a few years of English in school (or equivalent). In order to achieve significant improvement, you will have to spend roughly two hours per week of work in your own time. That time will primarily be spent on homework and three projects.

Over the course of 16 weeks, we will study all essential parts of English grammar, vocabulary, and language in general. This course will be conducted using a textbook, "English Elements Refresher B1". (It's ¤ 22.95 for the textbook with CD, which you should consider money well spent.)

This course is designed to teach you intermediate English-language skills. If you feel you are not exactly fluent in English, have difficulty following a class held in English, or could use a thorough brush-up of your grammar and vocabulary, this course might well be for you.

It is strongly recommended that participants have English skills equivalent to level A2* of the CEFR (German page: GER) system. Accordingly, the target level for participants to reach by the end of this course will be B1.

Please register for this course via the KVV.


* CEFR level A2: Can understand sentences and frequently used expressions related to areas of most immediate relevance (e.g. very basic personal and family information, shopping, local geography, employment). Can communicate in simple and routine tasks requiring a simple and direct exchange of information on familiar and routine matters. Can describe in simple terms aspects of his/her background, immediate environment and matters in areas of immediate need.
