Who is Advanced for?

This Advanced course is for students who feel comfortable with complex grammar and have a good vocabulary, but they want to sound more natural and fluent. This level focuses on the fine details that separate a very good English speaker from somebody who can communicate like a native speaker.

Our Advanced course is all about communication and listening practice, but it also offers lots of grammar input and writing practice.
