Erasmus English for International Communication

Language Level

The general English language level of participants is generally between CEFR mid/high B1 + mid B2.

However, if you have a higher level, you may still feel that you lack essential management skills in English, so you are also very welcome on the course. 

Teachers who wish to practice delivering a lesson: 

You will get help with instruction language for your lesson and full feedback on your performance. We love your lessons!

If you are a secondary school teacher who teaches Business Studies and similar subjects or history, we would recommend our specific courses for those subject teachers instead.
