This course can be followed by students who do not speak Dutch. The teacher is a native speaker.
Een goede basis kennis van het Engels is nodig. We oefenen alledaagse situaties. De focus ligt op communiceren en minder op grammatica. De spreekvaardigheid wordt bevorderd door opdrachten in groepjes. Uiteraard besteden we ook aandacht aan de Britse cultuur.
