English language courses

UvA Talen is a popular provider of English language courses. First of all, we offer an extensive range of general language proficiency courses from English Elementary (A1) to the English Proficiency Masterclass (C1).

 

During these courses, participants can improve their comprehensive language skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Participants will systematically and rapidly build vocabulary and gain additional practical knowledge of English grammar. We utilize high-quality and accredited teaching materials carefully selected based on our many years of experience.

 

In addition to our general language courses we also offer a number of specialty courses at the upper-intermediate and advanced levels. For participants looking to improve their business English we offer English @ Work and Business WritingAcademic Writing and Academic English have been developed specifically for those with an academic background. For those who want to improve their speaking skills we offer English Fluency and Public Speaking. Finally, we offer an IELTS preparation course for those who are going to take the IELTS exam.

 

New English teaching method

From October 2018 UvA Talen will be using the English teaching method Cambridge English Empower. This means that the structure of the courses will change. The most important change is that more hours will be spent on each level.

 

All the new course dates have already been posted online. Just enrol for the course that you think is closest to your level of proficiency and we will use the assessment to determine which new course is most suitable for you. If you have any questions about the new course structure, please contact our Language Courses department.
