Boost your English with the English Intermediate course. This course helps you if you have an intermediate command of English, but have trouble using the language actively. This could be due to lack of confidence in your English or to a lack of opportunities to use English in your day-to-day activities.
This course focuses primarily on active language use: speaking, listening, conversation and vocabulary. Reading and writing are addressed as well, but to a lesser extent. Speaking correctly requires some grammar, including the formulation of questions and the use of narrative tenses (past simple, past continuous, past perfect) to talk about the past.
The topics addressed in English Intermediate are general, personal or work-related. You will learn to speak about your own experiences (e.g. learning a new language), your work, friendship and family. You will also learn to respond appropriately when someone states an opinion (me too, me neither), to talk about a film or TV series that you have seen and about current topics.
AssessmentThe intake procedure for this course comprises: intake interview, online test
After you have registered for this course, we will invite you for an assessment to determine your level. We recommend that you enrol at least two weeks before the start of the course. If you enrol later than this, we cannot guarantee there will be time for the intake procedure. If you have completed the English Pre-Intermediate 2 course at UvA Talen, an assessment will not be necessary.

This course can also be taken as an intensive summer course.
