A 3 week, 15 hour, online course over four weekends. The overall aims of this course are to look at some of the issues that students and teachers often face when moving from a B2 level to C1. The course will:

  • examine the differences between these levels 
  • focus on language that is relevant and appropriate at C1 level
  • reflect on listening and the difficulties that students may encounter and how to overcome them
  • discuss ways to break through the ‘intermediate plateau’.

This 15-hour course is officially recognised by the 'Department d'Educació de Catalunya' (GTAF). ("Esta actividad está reconocida por el 'Departament d'Educació' como formación permanente del profesorado"- GTAF).
