Anotation:

This course is designed as a full-year, two semester preparation course for the university’s compulsory B2-level English Examination (Anglický jazyk B2 - zkouška - B0B04B2Z *). While the course is focused on helping students reach a level required to pass the B2-level English Examination (or improve their English for a higher mark), it also focuses more on the academic and technical vocabulary and grammar expected of students at the university level. *NOTE: This exam is also used for determining an appropriate level of English for Erasmus / International Study.

Study targets:

It is recommended that students take both English Language B2-1 and English Language B2-2 prior to taking the B2-level English Examination, but it is not mandatory.

Content:

English Language B2-2 builds upon the vocabulary and basic grammar concepts introduced in English Language B2-1. Academic and technical vocabulary (including word formation: going from noun to verb, verb to adjective, etc.), grammar concepts (e.g., prepositions, gerunds vs. infinitives, articles, relative pronouns and passive voice), as well as reading and listening skills are explored further. English Language B2-2 also aims to improve student’s speaking abilities with an oral presentation project. Writing skills are touched upon briefly – in particular, information regarding formal letter writing.
