completing the course:

In order to prepare you thoroughly for the final exam, there will be a joint repetition of the basic grammatical issues of course B1. Moreover, you can first test your own competence in a training exam, consisting of grammatical tasks as well as exercises involving listening and hearing comprehension, before you proceed to take the actual final exam. In addition, you will produce two texts, which will be marked by your teachers, in order to practice your writing for the final exam. Thus, you will be thoroughly acquainted with the format of the final exam before you take it, so that you will be able to optimize your capabilities in time. Last but not least, shortly before you write the final exam, we will support self-guided learning in the form of a ‘learning buffet’ which allows you to train those grammatical issues you yourself have chosen to pay extra attention to. Based on your individual needs, you can judge for yourself which grammatical issues you want to focus on when revising the newly learned grammar. Training with the learning buffet will allow you to check your individual solutions against the model solutions we have prepared for you. Of course, the Interaktiv e.V. teaching team will provide expert advice throughout the whole B 1 course and will proficiently support all of your learning activities.
