Advanced and Proficient Practical English share the same objectives and content level. In these courses, different subjects and language aspects are dealt with and these courses can be followed in either order after the Practical English trajectory after level 5 or as a challenging communicatie course to develop your English skills further at a high level.
The courses Advanced Practical English and Proficial Practical English are parallel courses, which means that they cover different topics at the same level and therefore, they can be followed in either order.
Required prior knowledge
You have advanced knowledge of English:
There is a placement test and a final test.
It is required that you take a brief online test before enrolling. This way, you can assess whether the course Proficient Practical English is suitable for you.
During the first session, the teacher will also test all participants to assess whether the result of the online test can be confirmed. If you are referred to a different level, you can enter that level on condition that sufficient places are still available.
Participants who passed the final test of the course Practical English 5 will also have to take this orientation test to check if their English proficiency suffices. If you passed the course Advanced Practical English, you can automatically register for this course.
