Greek Higher Intermediate (P66) - updated 2017-18

Summary

Level:

This level is applied to a limited number of Language Centre courses as a bridge between Intermediate and Advanced. You will probably have completed over 200 hours of tuition. While being able to express yourself reasonably well, some of the language spoken at native speaker speed still escapes you and you feel the need for more practice. As the course proceeds, will focus more on listening skills. Writing tasks will arise from material covered.

Main Objectives:

The course will enhance your confidence in an increasing range of factual, persuasive and expressive language tasks performed in a variety of contexts at a higher level.

Teaching:

1 x 2 hour class per week plus some independent learning.
