English Warm-Up 2 is designed for all students who would like to use their vacation time to gain more confidence in language use for their studies and future professional activities. The focus is on consolidating and deepening language skills (speaking, listening, reading and writing) in a stimulating, communicative learning environment.

The English Warm-Up 2 take place from 12-21 February 2024 on the following days and at the following times:

  • 12/02-16/02/24: 09:00-12:30 (incl. breaks)
  • 19/02-20/02/24: 09:00-12:30 (incl. breaks)
  • 21/02/24: 09:00-10:30 (final test)
  • Place: Eggenberger Allee 11., 3rd floor

Course Description: Do you want to brush up on your English and get a head start on your next semester? Then this English Warm-Up course is for you! We will review the main grammatical and syntactical concepts of intermediate English (such as present and past simple/progressive, present perfect, and future tenses; active vs. passive voice; adjective and adverbs; comparatives and superlatives; prepositions; if sentences; questions; word order; linking; etc.) and hone your reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills through interactive, learner-centered, and communicative exercises. Based on an evaluation of your personal strengths in English, you will also receive individualized feedback to develop your own plan for further self-study.

Did you know that there are between 6000 and 7000 languages in the world which are spoken by 7 billion people in 189 independent states? So high time to learn at least one new one!
