Everyday English

Course information

Boost your English with the course Everyday English! 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 a lack of opportunities to use English in you day-to-day activities.

This course focuses primarily on active language usage: 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 Everyday English 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 toome neither), to talk about a film or TV series that you have seen and about current topics. 

The Everyday English course is perfect for students who have completed English Pre-Intermediate 2 and who would like to devote more time at this level in order to improve their active language skills.

If you successfully complete this course, you will receive a certificate showing the level you have attained and you will be able to continue to English Upper Intermediate 1.


The intake procedure for this course comprises: intake interview, online test
