Engels

Do you want to improve your English? Our courses will bring you up to speed. We have about twenty different options, so we have something at every level. From Beginner to Proficiency, from language to literature, taking in business English and exam training on the way. In September and January we offer our full range of 12- or 18-week courses, and in late spring we offer an extra round of short courses, including exam training workshops and conversation classes. 

What level are you at? Are you not sure what your level is in English? Have a look here. If you want to take a course at Beginner, Elementary or Pre-intermediate level, you can register immediately via the website. For courses at Intermediate level and above, you will have to speak to a teacher first.  Online registration is only possible for lower level courses. Higher level courses are indicated by a button marked ‘Information’. 

Engels voor Nederlandstaligen

Engels voor Nederlandstaligen

Voor iedereen die Nederlands spreekt en nog niet uitgebreid met het Engels heeft kennisgemaakt, of de taal weer wil oppakken en verbeteren, zijn dit de cursussen bij uitstek. Er wordt tijdens de les al in het Engels gelezen, geoefend en gesproken, maar ook nog veel uitgelegd in het Nederlands, en zo komen we steeds een stapje verder.
