English Speaking: General English

This course is intended for staff members who feel that they lack the skills and/or confidence to speak English freely and fluently, and who are interested in getting more regular practice together with their colleagues. The course takes place in a small group and provides you with a safe environment and fun activities.


The focus lies on refreshing existing knowledge, building confidence, acquiring new vocabulary and formulaic phrases, practicing speaking skills, gaining freedom in speech, and integrating coping and compensation strategies.


The course will consist of 6 sessions of 1,5 hour each over the course of 6 weeks. No additional time investment is asked of you outside of the classes.There is no need for pre-existing knowledge of the learning platform.
