English B2

Home/English/English B2

At level B2 language structure will become more complex but you will also be more at ease to assimilate that complexity. Texts and dialogues will be more difficult, sentence structure too, you will learn a lot of new vocabulary but it will be a fulfilling challenge.

You will be able to write a text or to make a detailed description about a wide range of themes or even write a report, to give your opinion about the advantages and disadvantages of certain options, to interact with some fluency and spontaneity with English speakers, to understand literary prose, to read reports, to understand news on TV and movies, to participate in family conversations about several themes.

When you finish level B2, your English will flow and you will feel at ease in a conversation with native people and in writing too. Difficulties are now left behind and from now it will be all about enriching your knowledge about English language.
