C1 - Courses

The C1 courses deepen your language skills and enable you to use the language competently.

If you have already learned English on your own or in another way and reach level B2 in a free placement test, the C1 course is just right for you.

Our teachers speak English in the course. They emphasize authentic and current topics related to study and work. They prepare you for the professional and social challenges in life.

The goal is for you to understand demanding topics and texts and to be able to act and speak in complex situations relevant to your studies and work.

You can find more information and objectives about the course content in the module handbook.

C1 is a prerequisite for a TWIN certificate of the FHWS.
