B2 - English

The B2-courses form the foundation of competent language use.

If you have already learned English on your own or elsewhere and have reached level B1 in a free placement test, the B2-course is just right for you.

Our teachers speak English in the course. They emphasize authentic and current topics. They give you the opportunity to present your point of view on social issues.

The goal is for you to be able to understand complex texts and abstract content, to learn to analyze pros and cons on issues, and to be able to argue in English.

For more information and objectives on the course content, please refer to the module handbook.

B2 is one of the language entry requirements for many degree programs at the FHWS. Here you can find more information about entry requrements at FHWS.
